The Aruba Networks Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF) provides context—based controls to enforce application-layer security and prioritization. With the Aruba Networks Policy Enforcement Firewall — IT can enforce network access policies that specify who may access the network, with which mobile devices and which areas of the network they may access. AppRF is a Aruba Networks Policy Enforcement Firewall feature that is designed to give network administrators insight into the applications that are running on their network, and who is using them. WebCC is an optional Aruba Networks Policy Enforcement Firewall subscription feature that includes URL filtering, IP reputation, and geolocation filtering. Aruba Networks Policy Enforcement Firewall with AppRF technology provides user-level awareness of all traffic across the network. Aruba Networks Mobility Controllers support multiple user categories on a single network, spanning wired, wireless and VPNs.

Other capabilities include — phone number association — SIP-enabled devices can be tracked and displayed by their phone number. Call quality tracking — automatically calculate, display and track the R-value for each SIP call being processed through an Aruba Networks  Mobility Controller. SIP authentication tracking-track the registration of SIP devices to an IP PBX to determine if they are authenticated. Call detail records (CDRs) — display calls made to and from Wi-Fi clients, including originator, terminator, termination reason, rejected and failed calls, duration, and call quality. High-performance traffic processing with Aruba Networks Policy Enforcement Firewall, policy enforcement does not come at the expense of performance or require additional external hardware. Intelligent application identification — deep packet inspection (DPI) and of Layer 4-7 traffic and intelligent analysis allows Aruba Networks AppRF technology to identify many new types of applications — encrypted applications.

Network services like Apple AirPrint and AirPlay are optimized, IP multicast video traffic is automatically prioritized, and proprietary Apple FaceTime traffic and encrypted voice and video sessions like Microsoft Lync are automatically identified and prioritized. Most powerfully, knowledge of call status enables smarter voice-over-IP management across the air. Capabilities like RF management and load balancing do not affect voice quality during a call. Instead, PEF waits until voice handsets are on-hook to perform RF optimization. The external services interface (ESI) allows a wide range of network service appliances to be co-located with Aruba Networks Mobility Controllers to provide their services to clients on the network. These centrally enabled appliances provide services like virus protection, content inspection and filtering, intrusion detection and prevention, content transformation and protocol-based bandwidth shaping.

Aruba Networks Application Visibility

The AppRF dashboard gives IT a simple, powerful view of mobile app usage and performance on the WLAN. Aruba Networks mobility or virtual controllers display and categorize applications in use. Which can be sorted by user role, application, network and other criteria. This information can be used to troubleshoot application performance in real-time, set global WLAN policies, and plan for future growth. For longer-term historical data, Aruba Networks AirWave network management can aggregate up to two years of data from multiple Aruba controllers. Aruba Networks Policy Enforcement Firewall features controls that optimize WLAN bandwidth utilization. Role-based policies can limit the maximum amount of bandwidth consumption for a particular user or class of users. And prevents power users from monopolizing network resources. At the same time, traffic management policies can guarantee minimum amounts of bandwidth for devices to ensure that users stay productive.
