Incredible efficiency The 500H series APs are designed to optimize user experience by maximizing Wi-Fi efficiency and dramatically reducing airtime contention between clients. IoT platform capabilities Like all Aruba Wi-Fi 6 APs, the 500H series includes an integrated Bluetooth 5 and 802.15.4 radio to simplify deploying and managing IoT-based location services, asset tracking services, security solutions and IoT sensors. This allows organizations to leverage the 500H series as an IoT platform, which eliminates the need for an overlay infrastructure and additional IT resources. Aruba secure infrastructure The Aruba 500H series includes security components to help protect user authentication and wireless traffic. Simple and secure access To simplify policy enforcement, the Aruba 500H series uses Aruba's Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF) to encapsulate all traffic from the AP to the mobility controller (or gateway) for end-to-end encryption and inspection. Policies are applied based on user role, device type, applications and location. This reduces the manual configuration of SSIDs, VLANs and ACLs. PEF also serves as the underlying technology for Aruba Dynamic Segmentation. High-density connectivity Each 500H series AP provides connectivity for a maximum of 256 associated clients per radio (512 in total). Versatile installation options The APs can be deployed as a wall-mount or for remote teleworking environments, they can also be converted to a desk‑mount. Flexible operation and management A unique feature of Aruba APs is the ability to operate in either controllerless (instant) or controller-based mode.
