The AP230 has an integrated WIPS solution but if WIPS is a major requirement for your deployment then you need to look at the integrated WIPs on a feature by feature basis to ensure it covers your needs.

I agree with what Crowdie has shared on this and depending on your needs, a full IPS/IDS solution may be a better fit IMO. As wifi is primarily a layer 2 solution, full blown packet inspection is better suited with dedicated hardware. Having said that, the Aerohive solution does provide options for WIPS.
