Built in Wi-Fi router/gateway functionality
Aruba Instant On is designed to serve as the primary Wi-Fi router to your network. Just connect your access point to your modem and you’re ready to go. By setting up your Wi-Fi in router mode, you’ll eliminate the need for additional devices.
Separate employee and guest networks
Customize the experience with your logo, authentication, and rules of use, or keep it simple. You can easily apply bandwidth rates, set data usage per app, and limit the duration of use of an external portal or service like Facebook Wi-Fi. Additionally, you can open guest networks for quick and easy access, applying bandwidth limits for your clients or your network.
802.11k to eliminate sticky client issue
802.11k provides a smoother, non-disruptive experience by giving users consistent network access. Even when roaming, the result is fewer disruptions to applications, and faster service as a result of improved WLAN utilization.

Read what people are saying about Aruba Instant On
Instant On installation is as simple as you could ask for. If you can use a mobile or tablet, you can deploy the AP12. All we had to do was download the free Instant On app onto an iPad, then connect the AP12 to the switch and power it all up. A final strength is Aruba’s mesh technology, which is a great inclusion for the price.IT Pro Review | December 9, 2020
AP12 access points come with a very clean and professional portal. Installing and configuring a multi-SSID and VLAN deployment was quick and easy. The data and statistics in the portal are a nice touch and give great insight into wireless clients and traffic. In the end, I was pleased with the price point and design and it met my requirements.LinkedIn
Wish I'd found Aruba Instant On earlier. Very good performance and extremely easy to set up no matter how many access points you need!Amazon Review | October 16, 2020
