Aruba 7030 mobility controller
Controllers improve security, even thought they are not themselves security appliances.They do this with Aruba’s Policy Enforcement Firewall. This is a next-generation role-based user, device and application firewall. It provides automated Dynamic Segmentation for wireless and wired access security in any Aruba environment. It’s available through Mobility Controllers, Gateways and APs in Instant mode.
The PEF enforces policies based on user role, device type, application, and location. And simplifies and secures wired and wireless network access. Traffic is put in GRE tunnels for complete encryption all the way from an AP or switch.
Some of what the Aruba 7030 mobility controller does
The Aruba 7030 also improves client roaming, and general utilization. For example, in a difficult environment that requires 24/7 mission-critical connectivity, Aruba’s AI-wireless technology integrates right into the ArubaOS. The same OS used by all Aruba devices. And that means everything’s talking the same language.
Adaptive Radio Management, AirMatch and ClientMatch (now enhanced with Wi-Fi 6 grouping) provide RF optimization. This improves user experience and network health based on changing environmental conditions. It also corrects for noisy or congested RF and resolves sticky client issues during user roaming. RFProtect provides advanced spectrum analysis and wireless intrusion protection (WIPS/WIDS). This helps identify and mitigate Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi interference, and contains potential security risks. So the mobility controller is sort of the mastermind of a self-monitoring, self-healing network.
More on the Aruba 7030
Do you find yourself managing multiple WAN connections? The 7200 Series can connect to Aruba’s SD-WAN fabric right out of the box. And, Aruba’s integration with Microsoft can detect Microsoft 365, Teams and Skype for Business traffic. Then, it prioritizes them over less critical applications. Through management interfaces on ArubaOS, Aruba Central, and Aruba AirWave, call quality metrics such as MOS, latency, jitter, and packet loss can be visualized for additional insights.
The Aruba 7030 delivers 8 Gbps of Firewall Throughput, 8 Gbps of Wired Bridged Throughput, and 2.4 Gbps of encrypted throughput (3DES).
The Aruba 7000 series is well suited for large organizations. The 7030 Series provides connectivity for up to 4,096 concurrent users or devices and 64 access points.
The Aruba 7030 delivers superb, easy user experience for high density environments.
