Aruba 501 Wireless Client Bridge in Saudi Arabia

Extending Your Wireless Network Access

The Aruba 501 Wireless Client Bridge makes it simple to add devices to a wireless LAN that don’t have native wireless capabilities (WLAN). It protects the network from intruders with enterprise-class multilayer security capabilities, including an IEEE 802.1X supplicant. Up to 15 Ethernet client devices running a legacy networking protocol can be bridged to the WLAN using the 501 Wireless Client Bridge, allowing wireless network access to a wide range of protocols. A serial to TCP/IP converter allows an RS-232 asynchronous terminal device to interface with a network station that is compatible. When using WPA2/AES security, hardwareaccelerated encryption improves performance.


• Link up to 15 Ethernet devices or an RS232 serial device to a wireless network at Gigabit speeds
• One dual-band three spatial-stream MIMO radio running up to 1.3 Gbps
• Support for IEEE 802.11b/g/n and 802.11a/n/ac WLAN networks
• Fast roaming between acces
• Web-based configuration



Wireless mobility is provided via this bridge for devices such as electronic cash registers, scales, servers, printers, medical equipment, and other devices. It can be installed anywhere there is a WLAN signal, saving time and money on Ethernet cable installation for wired network access. In a multi-vendor context, the 501 Wireless Client Bridge fits into the Aruba Mobile First solution architecture and is interoperable with IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac wireless network infrastructure.
