HP A-802.11n Access Point Series Reviews and Features

In enterprise headquarters, branch offices, or campus networks, the HP A-802.11n Access Point Series is the best-in-class choice for secure, reliable radio-based connection.

  • High throughput
  • Centralized access point management
  • Automatic access point version upgrades
  • IPv4/IPv6 dual stack
  • EAD wireless client access
Centralized access point management: if the A-WA2600 series access point is used with an AC, most of management and data frames are processed by the AC; the AC controls all Fit APs by using the CAPWAP so that the status of all devices can be clearly known; compared to a traditional Fat AP, a Fit AP and an AC greatly help system administrators manage the whole network
Automatic access point version upgrades: The A-WA2600 access points can automatically communicate with the AC in a network, as well as download the latest software versions to the access point; such operations do not require manual intervention, and therefore reduce network maintenance; this feature is especially important to large-sized networks
Auto Channel Select (ACS): helps reduce radio co-channel interference by automatically selecting an unoccupied radio channel
IEEE 802.11h International Telecommunication Union (ITU) compliant: employs Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) to automatically select another channel and adjust transmit power to reduce interference with systems such as radar, if detected on that same channel
High throughput: the A-WA2600 wireless APs are compatible with latest IEEE 802.11n standard; the single-radio APs support wireless access rates as much as 300 Mbps, which is six times more than that of the traditional IEEE 802.11a/b/g products
Dual stack: IPv4 and IPv6 support future-proofs the wireless network against obsolescence
Gigabit Ethernet interface: provides a connection to the network that eliminates the network as a bottleneck
QoS and MultiMedia: IEEE 802.11e Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) wireless QoS standard—when combined with wired QoS policies—provides end-to-end QoS, delivering different wireless channel competitiveness for different services
Local forwarding: provides efficient data transmission and prevents the controller from being a performance bottleneck
Secure access control by user: media access control (MAC)-based and IEEE 802.1X network access control centralize wireless security through existing Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) servers to protect the network from unauthorized user access
Secure user isolation: virtual AP services enable the network administrator to provide specific services for different user groups, improving bandwidth and system resources and simplifying network maintenance and management
Secure access by location: location AP-based user access control helps ensure that wireless users can access and authenticate only to preselected APs, enabling system administrators to control the locations where a wireless user can access the network
Endpoint Admission Defense (EAD): integrated wired and wireless EAD helps ensure that only wireless clients who comply with mandated enterprise security policies access the network, reducing threat levels by infected wireless clients and improving the overall security of the wireless network
WPA2: the latest, toughest standards-based security—with Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2), Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption, Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), and Wired Equivalency Protocol (WEP) for legacy clients—protects the network from unauthorized user access
