Aruba Airwave Management Platform

Aruba Airwave Management Platform

Features

AirWave Management Platform provides efficient, centralized management of your wireless infrastructure and visibility across the wired edge of your network.

AirWave Management Platform™, the core component of AirWave™, gives your whole IT team an accurate picture of everything that affects service quality for users – from wired infrastructure, to the RF environment, to controllers and access points. Each team member has a personalized view of the network with administrative privileges tailored to his or her specific job responsibilities.

AirWave Management Platform eliminates the need for separate management tools for each vendor’s hardware and supports multiple generations of products from more than 15 vendors, from fat APs to thin, from legacy 802.11b to the newest 802.11n devices. AirWave Management Platform communicates with and controls your entire network infrastructure using standard protocols (SNMP, SSH, and so on) across a LAN or WAN.

What’s Unique About AirWave Management Platform?

  • Easy-to-use web-based interface provides role-based access and customized views of data for the whole IT team: from the service desk, to the NOC, to network engineering
  • Support for multiple generations of products from more than 15 vendors, from fat APs to thin, from legacy 802.11b to the newest 802.11n devices
  • Real-time network monitoring that automatically tracks every wireless user and device connected to your network
  • Root-cause analysis and event correlation across APs, controllers, and switches
  • Historical trend reporting with up to two years of data including network performance data, configuration changes, device inventories, rogue devices, user session histories and roaming patterns, and more
  • XML API enables cost-effective integration with IT service management tools and other applications

Specifications

EASY-TO-USE WEB INTERFACE

• Role-based access: viewing rights and administrative privileges tailored to job responsibilities

• Customizable views of key information throughout application

• Identify and search for users by username

DEVICE DISCOVERY

• Uses SNMP, HTTP, CDP, and other methods to locate all wireless devices

• Operates in any network environment, including distributed networks with large numbers of facili­ties

REAL-TIME MONITORING

• Automatically tracks every wireless user and device connected to your network

• Creates visibility into wired infrastructure that’s con­nected to wireless control­lers/access points (APs)

• Logs and displays radio and RADIUS authentication errors, which frequently cause connectivity problems

• Integrates with Visual RF to provide real-time location data

• Provides rapid drill-down from network-wide to device-level monitoring view

EFFICIENT DIAGNOSTICS

• Summary diagnostics pages give service desk and network engineers an at-a-glance view to quickly identify potential causes of reported problems

• Customizable charts let IT staff compare information such as signal quality or bandwidth for up to one year, to look for patterns and trends

ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS AND EVENT CORRELATION

• Maps upstream relationships between APs, controllers, and switches

• Correlates upstream problems with downstream events such as down APs to isolate root causes of problems and give network operators insight into their networks’ health

AUTOMATED CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT

• Configuration of APs, controllers and edge switches

• Configuration policies defined using a web-based interface or by importing a “known good” configuration from an existing device

• Hierarchical policy definition allows you to quickly and easily update general configurations across the entire network without overwriting certain settings that may vary from location to location

• Efficient remote software distribution eliminates time-consuming and error-prone manual software updates

• Intelligent scheduling — plan automated configuration or firmware updates for minimal work disruption and create recurring tasks

• Archived device configurations for auditing and version control

POLICY AUDITS AND COMPLIANCE

• Automated compliance audits verify the actual configuration of your APs and controllers against your policies and automatically “repair” misconfigured devices

• Maintains detailed audit logs of changes made by all users

MULTI-VENDOR, MIXED-ARCHITECTURE SUPPORT

• Single management interface for multiple generations of devices

• Support for autonomous (“fat”), lightweight (“thin”), and mesh access points

• Support for wireless infrastructure from vendors including Aruba, Cisco, Enterasys, Foundry, HP ProCurve, Meru, Motorola, Trapeze, Tropos and others

ACTIONABLE INFORMATION

• Customizable alerts let you know immediately when the system detects potential problems

• Alerts can be sent via email or via SNMP traps to other network management systems

• Historical trend reporting with up to two years of data including network performance data, configuration changes, device inventories, rogue devices, user session histories and roaming patterns, and more

• Create custom reports covering your entire network or a subset of devices

• View reports online, export them to CSV file, or distribute them to management automatically via email

• Use any of your report components to build a personalized dashboard on your AMP home

INCIDENT TRACKING & DATA CAPTURE

• Built-in incident tracking capabilities

• Take snapshots of relevant monitoring screens and performance data during an investigation to communicate exactly what was happening at the time a problem was reported

• Integrates with existing tools (such as BMC Remedy) that the service desk uses to track, report and escalate user issues

OPEN ARCHITECTURE

• XML API enables cost-effective integration with IT service management tools and other applications

• Any data that’s visible in the AMP user interface is accessible to you via the XML API

PLATFORM DATA

• Centralized in network operations center (no local agents required)

• Runs on standard PC hardware and standard Linux operating system

• Device communication through SSH, Telnet, SNMP v1/v2c/v3, HTTP, and HTTPS

• Supports up to 100,000+ managed devices
