    Aruba Rap-108 Access Point Product Description

    • ClientMatch technology eliminates sticky clients by continuously gathering session performance metrics and utilizing this data to steer mobile devices to the best AP and radio, even as users roam and RF conditions change.
    • ARM technology delivers best-in-class RF management, including automatic transmit power and channel control with auto coverage-hole correction.
    • Zero-touch provisioning as well as automated firmware upgrades and inventory management with the cloud-based Aruba Activate service.
    • Spectrum analyzer remotely scans the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands to identify sources of RF interference.
    • Security
      • With an OpenDNS service subscription, Aruba Instant RAPs delivers integrated web filtering, malware and botnet protection to every device connected to the WLAN
      • Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure storage of credentials and keys
      • SecureJack-capable for secure tunneling of wired Ethernet traffic
      • VPN configuration functionality enables the Instant AP to create a single VPN tunnel to an Aruba Mobility Controller in the data center. The Mobility Controller acts solely as a VPN end-point and does not supply the Instant AP with any configuration.
