Automatic device provisioning, firmware upgrades and inventory management
ARM delivers best-in-class RF management, including automatic transmit power and channel control with auto coverage-hole correction
The multifunctional Aruba RAP-3 delivers secure 802.11n wireless and wired network access to corporate resources from branch and home offices. Centrally managed by Aruba Mobility Controllers, the RAP-3 extends corporate resources to remote locations by establishing site-to-site VPN tunnels to the data center.The RAP-3 offers a variety of enterprise-class features, including role-based network access, policy-based forwarding, and Adaptive Radio Management (ARM), which gives remote workers the same high-quality Wi-Fi experience they get at corporate headquarters.Delivering a wireless data rate of up to 300 Mbps, the RAP-3 has three 10/100BASE-T Ethernet ports and one USB port for connecting to 3G and 4G networks. It is also available with an 802.3af power-over-Ethernet (PoE) port for IP phones or other devices.At locations that require greater coverage, the RAP-3 can join an Aruba Instant WLAN cluster. Simply install additional RAP-3s or any Instant AP and the entire cluster is managed as one. If one Instant AP fails, another AP automatically takes over with no disruption.For large installations, the Aruba Product Activation Service dramatically reduces deployment time by automating device provisioning, firmware upgrades and inventory management. RAP-3s are factory-shipped to your remote offices and configure themselves when powered up.
