Aruba Networks AP-225 Wireless Access Point

Brand New Sealed item


AP-225 and IAP-225
2.4-GHz (600 Mbps max) and 5-GHz (1.3 Gbps max) radios, each with 3×3 MIMO and three integrated omni-directional downtilt antennas

Wireless Radio Specifications

AP type: Indoor, dual radio, 5 GHz 802.11ac and 2.4 GHz 802.11n
In addition to 802.11n data rates, the 2.4-GHz radio supports 802.11ac data rates using 256-QAM modulation. This gives TurboQAM-enabled clients a 33% boost above the maximum supported data rate.
Software-configurable dual radio supports 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz
3×3 MIMO with three spatial streams and up to 1.3 Gbps wireless data rate
Supported frequency band (country-specific restrictions apply):
2.4000 GHz to 2.4835 GHz
5.150 to 5.250 GHz
5.250 to 5.350 GHz
5.470 to 5.725 GHz
5.725 to 5.850 GHz
Available channels: Dependent upon configured regulatory domain
Dynamic frequency selection (DFS) optimizes the use of available RF spectrum
Supported radio technologies:
802.11b: Direct-sequence spread-spectrum (DSSS)
802.11a/g/n/ac: Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM)
802.11n/ac: 3×3 MIMO with up to three spatial streams
Supported modulation types:
802.11b: BPSK, QPSK, CCK
802.11a/g/n: BPSK, QPSK, 16-QAM, 64-QAM
802.11ac: BPSK, QPSK, 16-QAM, 64-QAM, 256-QAM
Transmit power: Configurable in increments of 0.5 dBm
Maximum (aggregate, conducted total) transmit power (limited by local regulatory requirements):
2.4-GHz band: +23 dBm
5-GHz bands: +23 dBm
Advanced cellular coexistence (ACC) feature to effectively deal with interference from cellular systems
Maximum ratio combining (MRC) for improved receiver performance
Cyclic delay diversity (CDD) for improved downlink RF performance
Short guard interval for 20-MHz, 40-MHz and 80-MHz 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 reliability in signal delivery
Supported data rates (Mbps):
802.11b: 1, 2, 5.5, 11
802.11a/g: 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 54
802.11n: 6.5 to 450 (MCS0 to MCS23)
802.11ac: 6.5 to 1,300 (MCS0 to MCS9, NSS = 1 to 3)
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

AP-224: Three RP-SMA connectors for external dual-band antennas
AP-225: Six integrated down-tilt omni-directional antennas for 3×3 MIMO with maximum antenna gain of 3.5 dBi in 2.4 GHz and 4.5 dBi in 5 GHz. Built-in antennas are optimized for horizontal ceiling mounted orientation of AP-225.
