Cost-effective 802.11ac for hospitality and branch
This cost-effective 802.11ac access point with single or dual radio mode delivers high performance Wi-Fi networks for hospitality and branch offices, while minimising costs for low to moderate density areas.
The compact Aruba 203H AP is software configurable to operate in either 1x1 dual radio mode, or 2x2 single radio mode. It supports up to 867Mbps in the 5GHz band or up to 400Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band in single radio 2x2 mode. In dual radio 1x1 mode, the maximum data rates for the 203H AP are up to 433Mbps in the 5GHz band and 200Mbps in the 2.4GHz band.
The 203H AP can be easily mounted to a standard data wall-box using the existing structured cabling system or converted to a desk mounted AP using an optional mounting kit. With its flexible deployment options, the 203H is designed to deliver high-speed Wi-Fi for cost sensitive, medium-density environments. It ensures the most cost-effective Wi-Fi connectivity for indoor premises including hotel rooms, dormitories, small offices and remote workstations.
Cost-effective IEEE 802.11ac access point with configurable single- or dual-radio mode.
Supports up to 867 Mbps in the 5 GHz band or up to 400 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band in single-radio 2x2 mode and, in dual-radio 1x1 mode, up to 433 Mbps in the 5 GHz band and 200 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band.
Aruba 203H Series Unified Hospitality Access Points are software-configurable to operate in either 1x1 dual-radio mode, or 2x2 single-radio dual-band mode.
Powered by PoE, the 203H AP minimises power consumption with rich features that further facilitates a highly efficient and reliable wireless network. The 802.11ac 203H AP combines wireless and wired access in a single compact device. The local Gigabit Ethernet port can securely attach wired devices to your network. Additionally, the USB host interface on the AP allows the plug-in of Aruba BLE radio modules to enable advanced location and indoor wayfinding, and proximity based push notification services.
Two devices in one
The 203H ships with everything you need to deploy as a wall-mounted (hospitality) AP, attaching directly to a standard single-gang data wall-box. The 203H can also be easily converted to a desk mounted (remote) AP, using an optional accessory stand.
Deploy with or without controller
The 203H can be deployed in either controller-based (ArubaOS) or controllerless (InstantOS) deployment mode
New 802.11ac flexible radio architecture
The 203H AP is software configurable to operate in either 1x1 dual radio mode, or 2x2 single radio dual-band mode.
Supports up to 867Mbps in the 5GHz band (with 2SS/VHT80 clients) or up to 400Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band (with 2SS/VHT40 clients). In 1x1 dual radio mode, these max speeds are up to 433Mbps and 200Mbps respectively
Aruba APs offer a choice of deployment and operating modes to meet your unique management and deployment requirements:
The 203H AP is the unified AP that supports both controller-based and controllerless deployment modes, providing maximum flexibility
Controller-based mode: When deployed in conjunction with an Aruba Mobility Controller, Aruba APs offer centralised configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralised traffic forwarding.
Controllerless (Instant) mode: The controller function is virtualised in a cluster of APs in Instant mode. As the network grows and/or requirements change, Instant deployments can easily migrate to controller based mode.
Remote AP (RAP) mode for branch deployments
Air monitor (AM) for wireless IDS, rogue detection and containment
Secure enterprise mesh
Aruba Instant mode.
In Aruba Instant mode, a single AP automatically distributes the network configuration to other Instant APs in the WLAN. Simply power-up on Instant AP, configure it over the air, and plug in the other APs – the entire process takes about five minutes.
Accelerate your business with the mobile-first digital workplace.
The nature of work is changing. Collaborative environments, a mobile workforce, and the possibility of smarter spaces. Harness new technology – ultra-fast Wi-Fi, the Internet of Things, and mobile UC — to move your business, and the people in it, faster than ever before.
Workplace design and technology must move in unison.
As you move to the digital workplace, it’s critical to get your IT infrastructure ready. To meet the challenges, Aruba offers an integrated wired and wireless portfolio, with industry-leading advances in network management and security.
Create smarter, more efficient spaces with IoT.
BYOD changed the playing field and allowed the workplace to go mobile. Now IoT is taking things up a notch by creating smarter, more efficient work spaces — intelligent meeting rooms, location services, and real time monitoring. Aruba was there to solve your BYOD challenges and we’re ready for IoT. Are you?
Aruba's mobile-first approach to wired and wireless.
As organisations transition to the digital workplace, the majority of users will connect via wireless, but the surge in mobile and IoT means that the wired infrastructure is critical, too. Although fewer ports will be needed, high performing switches will team up with Wi-Fi to give businesses always-on connectivity.
Automate security for BYOD and IoT.
Aruba ClearPass can now profile any IoT device, integrate with multi-factor authentication for stronger device and app security, and provide deeper insights into security incidents. Its automated threat protection features ensure that each device is accurately given network access privileges with minimal hands-on IT interaction.
