|CHOOSE YOUR OPERATING MODE||Aruba 300 Series APs offer a choice of operating modes to meet your unique management and deployment requirements.
· Controller-managed mode – When managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, Aruba 300 Series APs offer centralized configuration, data encryption, policy enforcement and network services, as well as distributed and centralized traffic forwarding.
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 one Instant AP, configure it over the air, and plug in the other APs – the entire process takes about five minutes. If WLAN requirements change, a built-in migration path allows 300 Series Instant APs to become part of a WLAN that is managed by a Mobility Controller.
Remote AP (RAP) for branch deployments
Air monitor (AM) for wireless IDS, rogue detection and containment
Spectrum analyzer, dedicated or hybrid, for identifying sources of RF interference
Secure enterprise mesh
For large installations across multiple sites, the Aruba Activate service significantly reduces deployment time by automating device provisioning, firmware upgrades, and inventory management. With Aruba Activate, Instant APs are factory-shipped to any site and configure themselves when powered up.

WIRELESS RADIO SPECIFICATIONS
| AP type: Indoor, dual radio, 5GHz 802.11ac 3×3 MIMO and 2.4GHz 802.11n 2×2 MIMO
Software-configurable dual radio supports 5GHz (Radio 0) and 2.4GHz (Radio 1)
5GHz: Three spatial stream Single User (SU) MIMO for up to 1,300 Mbps wireless data rate to individual 3×3 VHT80 client devices
5GHz: Two spatial stream Multi User (MU) MIMO for up to 867 Mbps wireless data rate to up to two (1×1 VHT80) MU-MIMO capable client devices simultaneously
2.4GHz: Two spatial stream Single User (SU) MIMO for up to 300 Mbps wireless data rate to individual 2×2 VHT40 client devices (300 Mbps for HT40 802.11n client devices)
Support for up to 256 associated client devices per radio, and up to 16 BSSIDs per radio
Supported frequency bands (country-specific restrictions apply):
Available channels: Dependent on configured regulatory domain
Dynamic frequency selection (DFS) optimizes the use of available RF spectrum
Supported radio technologies:
Supported modulation types:
Transmit power: Configurable in increments of 0.5 dBm Maximum (conducted) transmit power (limited by local regulatory requirements):
Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC) minimizes interference from cellular networks
Maximum ratio combining (MRC) for improved receiver performance
Cyclic delay/shift diversity (CDD/CSD) for improved downlink RF performance
Short guard interval for 20MHz, 40MHz, 80MHz and 160MHz channels
Space-time block coding (STBC) for increased range and improved reception
Low-density parity check (LDPC) for high-efficiency error correction and increased throughput
Transmit beam-forming (TxBF) for increased signal reliability and range
Supported data rates (Mbps):
802.11n high-throughput (HT) support: HT 20/40
802.11ac very high throughput (VHT) support: VHT 20/40/80
802.11n/ac packet aggregation: A-MPDU, A-MSDU
|POWER SOURCES AND CONSUMPTION||The AP supports direct DC power and Power over Ethernet (POE)
When both power sources are available, DC power takes priority over POE
Power sources are sold separately
Direct DC source: 412Vdc nominal, +/- 5%
Power over Ethernet (POE): 48 Vdc (nominal) 802.3af/802.3at compliant source
Maximum (worst-case) power consumption: 13W (PoE) or 11W (DC)
Maximum (worst-case) power consumption in idle mode: 3.7W (PoE) or 2.6W (DC)
|WI-FI ANTENNAS||AP-304/IAP-304: Three RP-SMA connectors for external dual band antennas. Worst-case internal loss between radio interface and external antenna connectors (due to diplexing circuitry): 0.8dB in 2.4GHz and 1.6dB in 5GHz.
AP-305/IAP-305: Three integrated dual-band downtilt omni-directional antennas for 3×3 MIMO with peak antenna gain of 3.9dBi in 2.4GHz and 5.4dBi in 5GHz. Built-in antennas are optimized for horizontal ceiling mounted orientation of the AP. The downtilt angle for maximum gain is roughly 30 degrees.
|OTHER INTERFACES||One 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet network interface (RJ-45)
USB 2.0 host interface (Type A connector)
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radio
Visual indicators (multi-color LEDs): for System and Radio status
Reset button: factory reset (during device power up)
Serial console interface (proprietary; optional adapter cable available)
Kensington security slot.
|MOUNTING||The AP ships with two (white) mounting clips to attach to a 9/16-inch or 15/16-inch flat T-bar drop-tile ceiling.
Several optional mount kits are available to attach the AP to a variety of surfaces.
