So what are the features of Aruba?
Screaming fast 11ac Wave2
Unique in the industry, the Aruba 300, 310, 320, and 330 series APs are powered by ClientMatch technology — making sure all devices have the fastest connection at all times and Multi-User MIMO capable devices can actually make use of the technology. They come with an integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon to help remotely manage battery-powered Aruba Beacons.
The Aruba 8400 core switch
The new Aruba 8400 core switch beats the competition in power and performance, but that’s not what has everyone talking.
