What is a Mobility Controller?
The Aruba 7030 Mobility Controller is Aruba’s next-step up from the 7024 in this category. Basically, a mobility controller ramps up the performance of a Wide Local Area Network. It does this by centralizing all control of individual access points.
So it acts as the nerve center of a fleet of (what could be) widely dispersed access points. It is part of the Aruba 7000 series, which consists of the 7005, 7008, 7010, 7024, and 7030.
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.
More cool features of the Aruba 7030
Controllers also improve client roaming, and general utilization. For example, in a demanding environment that requires 24/7 mission-critical connectivity, Aruba’s patented, AI-powered 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.
