Aruba AP-505H Dual Band 802.11ax 1.50 Gbit-s Wireless Access Point
High performance and cost-effective Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) for hospitality, branch, and teleworker deployments
These economical Wi-Fi 6 access points provide high-performance connectivity for any organization experiencing growing mobile, cloud and IoT requirements. With a wireless aggregate data rate of up to 1.5 Gbps and gigabit local wired ports, they deliver the range of connectivity options needed for venues such as hotels, residence halls, and remote offices alike.
The 500H Series APs are designed to optimize user experience by maximizing Wi-Fi efficiency and dramatically reducing airtime contention between clients.
Features include Orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA), multi-user MIMO and cellular optimization. With up to 2 spatial streams (2SS) and 80MHz channel bandwidth, the 500H Series provides groundbreaking wireless capabilities for budget-conscious deployments.

Advantages of OFDMA
This capability allows Aruba's APs to handle multiple Wi-Fi 6 capable clients on each channel simultaneously, regardless of device or traffic type. Channel utilization is optimized by handling each transaction via smaller sub-carriers or resource units (RUs), which means that clients are sharing a channel and not competing for airtime and bandwidth.
Wi-Fi 6 and MU-MIMO aware client optimization
Aruba's patented AI-powered ClientMatch technology eliminates sticky client issues by placing Wi-Fi 6 capable devices on the best available AP. Session metrics are used to steer mobile devices to the best AP based on available bandwidth, types of applications being used and traffic type - even as users roam.
Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC)
This feature uses built-in filtering to automatically minimize the impact of interference from cellular networks, distributed antenna systems (DAS), and commercial small cell or femtocell equipment.
Intelligent Power Monitoring (IPM)
Aruba APs continuously monitor and report hardware energy consumption. They can also be configured to enable or disable capabilities based on available PoE power - ideal when wired switches have exhausted their power budget (AP-505H).
IoT PLATFORM CAPABILITIES
Like all Aruba Wi-Fi 6 APs, the 500H Series includes an integrated Bluetooth 5 and 802.15.4 radio (for Zigbee support) 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.
