Aruba 6000 modular mobility controllers available from Gamma Solutions are designed to meet a wide range of mobility, security and management requirements for corporate headquarters and large campus deployments with minimal personnel.
The modular Aruba 6000 mobility controllers can be easily installed without disrupting the existing wired network. The core functionality of Aruba 6000 mobility controllers is enabled by M3 controller modules and any combination of supervisor modules can be installed in a single chassis.
Designed for the performance needs of 802.11n, the high performance Aruba M3 controller modules are built on a flexible multi-core processing architecture that makes them adaptable to wireless LAN, remote networking or network security services.
Located in the distribution layer or in the data centre, Aruba 6000 mobility controllers manage key functions such as:
- Complex and processing-intensive authentication and encryption
- Virtual private networking (VPN)
- Layer 2-3 networking
- Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF)
- Adaptive Radio Management (ARM)
- RFProtect Spectrum Analyzer and Wireless Intrusion Protection
Access points (APs) can move user traffic to Aruba 6000 through secure IP tunnels over a public or private transport network, and locally bridge at the access layer, depending on the end user application or traffic forwarding requirements established by IT administrators.
Key features of Aruba 6000 mobility controllers:
- Supports up to 2,048 APs @ 512 per module in the campus and 4,096 APs @ 1,024 per module when supporting Remote APs (RAPs)
- Wireless LAN configuration is virtualized and implemented in cost-effective 802.11n APs at the access layer
- Clustering and centralised management allows large enterprise networks with hundreds of mobility controllers to be managed and maintained with minimal staff
- Designated master mobility controller manages multiple local mobility controllers
- AirWave Wireless Management Suite provides superior control for IT staff through historical reporting and real-time troubleshooting
