Aruba 7000 Series Controller

7000 Series Mobility Controllers Features

Extending enterprise networks to every branch has never been simpler.

The 7000 Series Mobility Controller running ArubaOS delivers industry-leading network services that maximize Wi-Fi performance, ensure seamless roaming, and extends secure VPN access for Remote APs, Instant APs and VIA VPN clients.

The 7000 Series also serves as the key policy enforcement agent within the Dynamic Segmentation solution. Enforcement is accomplished through an industry-first user firewall (PEF), built-in Layer 7 application visibility and control, and web content filtering (WebCC).

As part of a controller cluster managed by Aruba’s Mobility Master, the 7000 Series can take advantage of the full ArubaOS feature set, including centralized configuration hierarchy, AI-powered AirMatch, live firmware upgrades and secure multi-tenant SSID segmentation (MultiZone).

With support for up to 64 access points (APs), 24 Ethernet ports, and multiple WAN connections, the 7000 Series can provide up to 6 Gbps of firewall throughput—plenty of capacity for the most demanding distributed enterprise environments.
