Aruba AP-93H Access Point

The multifunctional enterprise-class AP-93H 802.11n access point (AP) easily mounts to an Ethernet wall plate and uses the existing structured cabling system to provide secure wired and Wi-Fi network access in dormitories, classrooms, hotels, medical clinics and multitenant environments.

Capable of delivering high-performance Wi-Fi services to multiple rooms, the AP-93H greatly simplifies RF coverage planning and significantly reduces wireless LAN (WLAN) deployment costs. The AP-93H is built to provide years of trouble-free operation and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Delivering wire-like performance at data rates up to 300 Mbps, the AP-93H features a single 2×2 MIMO 2.4-GHz or 5-GHz dual-band radio with internal antennas. For wired connectivity, it features four 10/100BASE-T switch ports, an additional pass-through RJ-45 port and a 10/100/1000BASE-T uplink port that can operate from an 802.3af power-over-Ethernet (PoE) source or a 12-volt DC power supply.

Working with centralized Aruba Mobility Controllers, the AP-93H delivers secure, high-speed network services that move users to a “wireless where possible, wired where necessary” network access model. The network can then be rightsized by eliminating unused Ethernet switch ports, which reduces operating costs.

The AP-93H leverages wireless as a primary connection with speed and reliability comparable to a wired LAN. High performance is maintained using channel bonding, block acknowledgement and MIMO radios, while advanced antenna technology increases range and reliability.

The AP-93H also supports Adaptive Radio Management™ and spectrum analysis to maximize client performance and mitigate RF interference across the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz radio bands.

In addition to wired and wireless connectivity, the multifunctioning AP-93H supports a variety of operating modes, including wireless LAN (WLAN) access with part-time air monitoring, dedicated air monitoring for wireless intrusion protection and spectrum analysis, Remote AP (RAP) functionality and secure enterprise mesh.



Indoor single-radio 802.11n dual-band AP for dormitories, classrooms, hotels, medical clinics and multitenant environments.

Operating Modes

  • 802.11a/b/g/n AP
