What is Aruba Instant On?

Aruba Instant On has been designed with small businesses in mind. It’s the WiFi allowing you to improve productivity, build the business and give your customers & employees the online experience they crave.

What is Aruba Instant On’s coverage?

Aruba Instant On uses smart mesh WiFi and each model is designed for indoor and outdoor environments, giving you a combination of performance, network security and simple setup.

What is Smart Mesh WiFi?

A mesh is a set of access points that work together to extend coverage over a large area. By connecting a primary Access Point (AP) to your internet router, you then link further AP’s around your business. Each AP communicates with one another, providing a single extended network or mesh.

With Aruba Smart Mesh, you can simply add more APs as your business grows and a single network can support up to 25 APs, all without the extra cost of Ethernet ports or extra cabling.

As each AP communicates through Aruba Smart Mesh, you’ll have no trouble with bandwidth or coverage. It’s as good if you were standing next to the primary AP.
