The Instant On Differentiators
The Aruba Instant On App
Manage everything through our official app on the device of your choice. Manage your network from anywhere, anytime - all from the palm of your hand.
Built-In Security Gateway/Firewall
Stop unwanted people and bots from accessing the network. Leverage advanced features that do not require external gateways - or the complexity that comes with them. Quickly and easily swap it out with another AP in a single click, in case of gateway failure. The new Cloudflare integration provides private and fast web browsing. The 802.11k standard improves roaming performance helping clients connect to nearby APs quickly.
Instant On automatically detects and applies highest (critical) PoE priority to Instant On access points for uninterrupted power delivery and wireless network access. Wired and wireless voice traffic is prioritized with high QoS priority end-to-end for optimal voice performance.
Tailored User Experiences
Customize guest Wi-Fi experience with logos, authentications, and rules of use. Set data usage per app. Limit duration of use. Use an external portal or service like Facebook Wi-Fi. Create open guest networks for quick and easy access. With the Instant On mobile app, you can apply bandwidth limits for your clients or your network for prioritizing certain primary networks.
Enterprise Grade Wi-Fi And Features
Control channel and channel width to suit specific environments. Keep users happy as they move between spaces or meetings with a seamless handoff between APs. Protect users with the robust password-based authentication that WPA3/WPA2 wireless security standard provides. Instant On supports OWE for secure, open Wi-Fi network access at cafes, retail stores and restaurants.
Site Inventory and Topology View
The site inventory view lists all the Instant On switches and access points on a single interface, and the topology view provides an intuitive structure of all Instant On devices deployed in a network - helping to quickly identify non-functioning devices and troubleshoot accordingly. Network issues can be easily diagnosed with connectivity tests like Ping and Traceroute.
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
As the number of security breaches continue to rise, 2FA has become an essential tool to mitigate risk against compromised login credentials. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), provides an additional layer of authentication, prevents attackers from remotely accessing your network, and secures your customer information.
Manage multiple sites, multiple networks, distributed deployments, and multi-tenancy deployments with ease through our cloud-hosted web interface and mobile app. Create unique configurations, statistics, guest portals, and admin read/write for every site. Instant On allows three admin accounts per site, offering an option to lock accounts to prevent them from accidental deletion.
PPPoE and Static IP
Instant On APs can act as routers and handle PPPoE configuration with VLAN support, and they can also act as a DHCP server, providing IP addresses to the wireless network. Assigning a static IP address on an access point allows users to use the same IP address regardless of where the access point is connected, making it easier to access its setup page for any configuration changes.
Extend coverage to hard-to-reach spaces where Ethernet cabling may not exist. Set up a mesh network up in minutes through the app - indoors or out.
5-Star Voice and Video Quality
Keep users connected via softphones and mobile apps. Automatically detect and prioritize voice and video applications such as Skype, FaceTime, and WeChat that use SIP, SCCP and other popular protocols.
No Hidden Fees
All features are included in the price of the hardware - there are no recurring subscription or licensing fees. Expert-level support and industry-leading 2-year warranty are also included, along with chat support for the life of the product.
