There are good cars, there are bare basic cars. In the same vein, there are excellent Access Points (APs) and there are ones that meet the bare basics.
In the modern society that we live in today where everyone has a mobile device in their hands at all times, subpar, jittery connections, clogged online traffic, and intermittent transmission is no longer tolerable. Consumers expect the best, if not top-notch.
Also known as Wi-Fi 6 campus access point, the Aruba 510 series 802.11ax surpasses the connection capabilities of the conventional APs because it can accommodate a wider range and number of devices, applications and services without lag.
Consumers’ low tolerance for bad user experience can serve as an impetus for better connection and infrastructure. This Aruba 510 series 802.11ax review will show you how to hoop-jump past voice call sluggishness and slow video streaming.
Aruba 501 Series 801.11ax Tips the Scale of Connectivity
Aruba 801.11ax access point is four times more efficient than that of conventional APs. It is seamless when integrated into a dense network that requires constant connection and large bandwidth.
One might think high-speed, consistent internet access applies only to public areas like lecture halls, malls, conference halls, or other public spaces. Truth be told, areas with more than 25 people diametrically accessing their mobile devices and IoT falls under the ambit of ‘high density’.
Anything less than top-notch internet connection is considered a failure of sorts.
Here’s where the Aruba 801.11ax comes in handy.
Its intelligent features can cater to numerous users regardless of the bandwidth requirements, can serve multiple clients and traffic types at all times. All thanks to its multi-user features like:
- Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA)
- Multi-User Multi-Input Multi-Output (MU-MIMO)
The Flexibility of OFDMA
In the case of transmission of short packets such as voice transmissions, reviews of the Aruba 801-11ax unveils its ability to sift through traffic that is not larger than 60 bytes by allowing them to run through the same channel, increasing its network capacity and user data rate to reduce lag time.
When there is numerous attendees in conference halls accessing the same network, Aruba 801.11ax dynamically increases its capacity by registering and increasing its capacity to support numerous IoT devices and voice-based applications.
Based on Aruba 802.11ax access points reviews, this spells seamless voice and video chats on communication apps using the public Aruba access point. This spells the end of laggy Skype calls, Zoom meetings, and WhatsApp usage whenever consumers are in large public spaces.
“If they use applications that have multi-user capacity, they will see a benefit. There will be major improvements with the new ax-enabled clients.” – Trent Fierro, Director of Software Solutions Marketing for Aruba
High Definition and Seamless Streaming with Aruba 801.11ax’s MU-MIMO Feature
The primary function of the Aruba 801-11ax access point is to improve a network’s capacity to accommodate multiple devices and clients all at once. This is reminiscent of what the 802ac Wave 2 could do.
Only more power-packed.
It eliminates confusion within the system and seamlessly sorts everything out on its own. The Aruba 802.11ax reviews are out and we’ve got everyone talking. A part of its AI capabilities is to point user access to either OFDMA for short packet usage or MU-MIMO for longer packets.
Aruba 801.11ax Supports Client Match Automatically
Once the access point is in action, it automatically scans, detects, and classifies mobile devices, sifts them through pre-set criteria, and group-match them with the best APs and radios to optimize network performance.
What the Aruba 801.11ax does is to boost the performance of multi-user experiences by grouping ax clients with one AP and other single-client and groups will enjoy speedy multi-user OFDMA/MU-MIMO ports. The brand-new Aruba access point has enhanced security support via WPA 3 and Wi-Fi Certified Enhanced Open standards.
Designed for Users, Powered by Artificial Intelligence
Aruba has always prided itself as a cognizant brand and company that is aware of both the changing landscape of technology and the evolution of consumer needs. That’s why the 501 Series became the first AX access point that comes with Zigbee and Bluetooth 5, making it compatible with 74% of IoT in the market.
What’s even more encapsulating is that the Aruba access point comes with Target Wake Time (TWT) and AI-controlled connection.
TWT helps with battery-saving while Aruba AirMatch uses machine learning, which is directly connected to the main AI switchboard, to provide individualized tweaking depending on the RF channel, channel width, and power-planning settings. Working in sync with each other, users will experience zero to minimal glitch when connected to the internet.
Aruba 802.11ax and the Environment
Predecessor and competitor products are notoriously known for their high consumption of energy due to its high-capacity performances. But we’ve now kicked that to the curb with Aruba 802.11ax.
The 501 Series is highly energy-efficient and there’s peace of mind of knowing that providing top quality internet access does not equal higher utility bills. Companies with a vision of reducing carbon footprint and energy wastage, investing in the Aruba 802.11ax simply makes sense.
This is made possible with the Aruba NetInsight Green AP function which, once again, uses machine learning to understand when to put it into Sleep Mode.
Aruba 802.11ax studies usage patterns intelligently and predicts low and high usage points. For instance, if there is high usage during your office’s operating hours from 7am to 7pm, Aruba will automatically switch to Sleep Mode during hours of underutilization.
Night owls and those burning the midnight oil at the office, however, WILL continue to enjoy easy connectivity and high-speed internet even during Sleep Mode.
Some might question the reason behind the upgrade but Aruba 802.11ax reviewers have some thought-nuggets to share with those who are thinking of taking the leap.
Reviewers are game on the 802.11ax’s ability to save energy, intelligently predict patterns and user traffic, security and the Zigbee radio feature.
If a company is ready to hit a homerun with connectivity and there’s a budget for an upgrade, reviewers believe there is simply no reason NOT to go with the Aruba 802.11ax.
