Weatherproof and temperature hardened, the Aruba 387 Series Outdoor Access Points deliver greater than one Gigabit per second aggregate throughput. It supports distances up to 400 meters (1/4 miles) and provides resilient operation in inclement weather. And, ease of deployment dramatically simplifies the skills needed to deploy point to point connections. The 60GHz radios include the ability to auto-adjust the radios between two APs that are only crudely aligned. These APs are fully integrated into the Aruba portfolio and supported with on premise and cloud-based management.
In today's mobile era users are expecting to be connected everywhere and at any time. With the ever-growing number of IoT devices, there will be even more demand to provide reliable connectivity between two buildings or structures. Legacy point-to-point solutions can be expensive, and are vulnerable to weather conditions. They can also require highly skilled workers for installation and more importantly to ensure proper alignment of the APs.
Use cases range from connecting remote buildings to providing high bandwidth to a temporary event site. Point-to-point solutions offer an attractive option for linking two sites where a right of way is difficult to obtain, to provide a backup for existing fiber connections, or as a recovery link in the event of a line cut or crushed or flooded conduit.
The AP-387 is a dual radio solution that includes separate 5 and 60GHz radios for high performance point to point requirements, even in extreme outdoor weather use cases.
A maximum concurrent data rate of 2.5 Gbps in the 60GHz band and 867 Mbps in the 5GHz band (for an aggregate peak on air data rate of 3.37 Gbps) is supported
