Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6™ AP22
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6™ program is designed to ensure that Wi-Fi 6-capable devices meet the highest standards for security and interoperability. Wi-Fi 6 certification guarantees high-speed and advanced features like orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA), downlink multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) technology, and the next generation of Wi-Fi security, WPA3.
High performance, high speed
The Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6TM AP22 delivers faster Wi-Fi speeds, greater capacity, and reduced latency between access points and devices for a superior Wi-Fi experience in dense deployments of up to 75 max active devices. With a maximum aggregate data rate of more than 1.7 Gbps, the AP22 delivers the speed and reliability small businesses need.
The AP22 is compatible with all your legacy wireless devices - 802.11b/g/n/ac - so you won't have to replace your smartphones and tablets.
25% data increase
1024-quadrature amplitude modulation (1024-QAM) enables a 25% data increase over 256 QAM, improving throughput to ensure high quality of service (QoS) for higher-density venues. Additionally, it delivers 4x the capacity of 802.11ac access points to connect more devices simultaneously.
MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output)
With MU-MIMO, access points can support simultaneous directional RF links and up to four simultaneous, full-rate Wi-Fi connections. For example:
- Multimedia players
- Both Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 clients
TWT (Target Wake Time)
Ideal for devices that communicate infrequently, the AP22 features Target Wake Time (TWT). By establishing a schedule for when clients need to communicate with an access point, it effectively increases device sleep time and significantly conserves battery life, a feature that is particularly important for mobile devices.
OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access)
OFDMA allows access points to handle multiple Wi-Fi 6 capable clients on each channel simultaneously, regardless of device or traffic type - improving efficiency and reducing latency.
ACC (Aruba Advanced Cellular Coexistence)
Using built-in filtering, Aruba Advanced Cellular Coexistence (ACC) maximizes performance by minimizing interference from 3G/4G/LTE networks, Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), and commercial small cell/femtocell equipment.

The Wi-Fi is fast and stable. I get full ISP wire speed walking around my house, with no drops. VoIP and video calls are smooth and jitter free. My SmartTV starts faster and streams effortlessly.Amazon Review | November 14, 2020
I like this Aruba Instant On product line, and I like the speed of the Wi-Fi 6 APs. This is a piece of cake to set up, and works pretty well.Amazon Review | Jan 26, 2021
In my three AP setup with the Aruba Instant On AP22 deployed in three rooms, our budget is only down 17 watts, leaving around 175+ watts available for additional PoE devices.
Performance of the AP22 is on par with expectations and in testing, showed ~650Mbps of real-world throughput with the 5GHz band. I will say the design of the Aruba AP22 is defined to be efficient over offering outlandish specs.
