Overview:

The Aruba 510 series campus access points with 802.11ax technology are designed to deliver high performance access for mobile and (IOT) devices in environments where density is an issue. The 510 series uses 802.11ax features to efficiently and simultaneously serve multiple clients and traffic types in dense environments, increasing data rates for both individual device and overall system.

The 510 series support all mandatory and several optional 802.11ax features, which includes up- and downlink OFDMA* with up to 16 resource units, multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO)*, 4x4 MIMO with up to four spatial streams in 5GHz and 2x2 with up to two special streams in 2.4GHz, channel bandwidths up to 160MHz (5GHz; 40MHz in 2.4GHz), and 1024-QAM modulation.

The 510 series supports maximum data rates of 4.8Gbps in the 5GHz band and 575Mbps in the 2.4GHz band (for an aggregate peak data rate of 5.4Gbps). Each AP supports up to 256 associated client devices per radio (typical recommended limit for active clients is 150), making the mid-range 802.11ax 510 series APs ideal for high density environments, such as schools, retail branches, hotels and enterprise offices.

In addition to 802.11ax standard capabilities, the 510 Series supports unique features like Aruba ClientMatch radio management and additional radios for location services and IoT applications. This delivers an unsurpassed user experience in today's all-wireless digital work environment and offers up to 4x higher capacity in a cost-effective manner.

  • High performance Dual Radio 802.11ax AP with OFDMA and Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)
  • Supports all mandatory and several optional 802.11ax features
  • Maximum data rates of 4.8Gbps in the 5GHz band and 575Mbps in the 2.4GHz band (for an aggregate peak data rate of 5.4Gbps)
  • Mid-range 802.11ax 510 series APs ideal for high density environments, such as schools, retail branches, hotels and enterprise offices
  • Includes Bluetooth 5 and Zigbee radios for location and IoT use-case

Benefits:

HIGH EFFICIENCY

  • The Aruba 510 Series will efficiently and simultaneously serve multiple clients, increasing data rates for both individual devices and as an overall system. Two key features of 802.11ax are multi-user connectivity and enhanced efficiency using Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA)* and multi-user - multiple input multiple output (MU-MIMO).

UNSURPASSED PERFORMANCE

  • In addition to the standard 802.11ax capabilities, Aruba's ClientMatch technology will automatically detect and classify mobile devices with common characteristics, group these devices, and match them with the best AP's and radios to the optimize performance of the network. For example, ClientMatch will automatically attempt to group 802.11ax capable devices onto available AP radios with equivalent capabilities, so that the performance benefits of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) are maximized. This means increased network performance and a boost in network capacity. The AP-510 series run on ArubaOS 8, which delivers always-on networking via features like LiveUpgrade, Controller Clustering and seamless fail-over. ArubaOS 8 also includes AirMatch, which provides machine learning technology to automatically optimize the performance of a wireless network by tuning the radio frequencies (RF) of the access points.

IOT READY

  • The 802.11ax technology also provides unique benefits for IoT devices ranging from dedicated channels in OFDMA which is simultaneous transmission of IoT connections with low latency, to power saving options with Target Wake Time (TWT)* to save battery life.
  • In addition, the 510 series support an integrated Bluetooth 5 and Zigbee radio, as well as a USB port for maximum flexibility, providing secure and reliable connectivity for IoT devices and for implementing location services.

Power Sources and Consumption

  • The AP supports direct DC power and Power over Ethernet (POE; on port E0)
  • When both power sources are available, DC power takes priority over POE
  • Power sources are sold separately; see the ordering Information section below for details
  • When powered by DC or 802.3at POE, the AP will operate without restrictions
  • When powered by 802.3af POE and with the IPM feature enabled, the AP will start up in unrestricted mode, but it may apply restrictions depending on the POE budget and actual power. What IPM restrictions to apply, and in what order, is programmable.
  • When powered by 802.3af POE with the IPM feature disabled, the AP operates in power-save mode, and will apply some fixed restrictions:
    • The USB interface and E1 Ethernet port are disabled
    • The 5GHz radio is restricted to 2x2 operation
  • Maximum (worst-case) power consumption:
    • DC powered: 17W
    • POE powered (802.3at): 19W
    • POE powered (802.3af): 13.5W
    • All numbers above are without an external USB device connected. When sourcing the full 5W power budget to such a device, the incremental (worst-case) power consumption for the AP is up to 6.5W.
  • Maximum (worst-case) power consumption in idle mode: 11W (DC or POE)
  • Maximum (worst-case) power consumption in deep-sleep mode: 1W (DC or POE)
