The controllerless Wi-Fi solution
There’s no easier way to get enterprise-grade Wi-Fi up and running. Aruba Instant delivers the only controllerless Wi-Fi solution that is easy to set-up, and loaded with security and smarts needed to accelerate your business without breaking your budget.
Aruba Instant Wifi – Powerful, Simple, Affordable
The indisputable need for users to be productive on their mobile devices is driving organisations everywhere to look for ways to cost-effectively build and support Wi-Fi networks that deliver the best connectivity and user experience.
Controllerless Wi-Fi solutions are simple and ffordable. They eliminate the need for additional controller hardware by distributing controller functionality such as authentication and configuration to the access points (AP).
However, not all controllerless solutions are equal. Some solutions may have some serious limitations if speed and reliability associated with business-grade networks are sacrificed in favour of simplicity. The result can be Wi-Fi disruptions, poor performance, and unhappy users.
Aruba Instant comes with automatic RF management that ensures the strongest Wi-Fi connection for all mobile devices. And granular visibility into mobile apps prioritises business-critical data, and keeps out the malicious content.
When it comes to managing your network, we give you the freedom to choose. Because a one-size-fits-all approach can’t possibly meet your needs as your business evolves. That’s why it’s important to have the flexibility to manage your network your way.
Manage an entire cluster of Instant access points – All Aruba Instant access points feature a simple, intuitive management dashboard that’s easy to use. New access points automatically get their configurations from existing ones, making it quick and effortless to increase Wi-Fi coverage.
Manage a large network of access points – Aruba Mobility Controllers streamline access point deployment and enable management of large networks within a large campus or across many remote sites.
