Get high resiliency and maximum scalability. 802.11ac Aruba Networks Wireless Access Points deliver superb Wi-Fi performance — they can be deployed as controller-managed or controllerless Aruba Instant APs depending on the design, scope and scale of your wireless network. And Aruba Networks newest Wave 2 APs deliver screaming fast 11ac speeds with a HPE Smart Rate multi-gig uplink to boost network performance in high-density environments. While 802.11ac Wave 1 offers secure, lightning fast Wi-Fi, Wave 2 takes it a step further and boosts network efficiency — even for legacy 802.11n clients. And when it comes to power, 802.11ac is incredibly efficient, extending battery life by over 30%. Aruba Networks Wave 2 takes Wi-Fi to the next level. Aruba Networks 802.11ac Wave 2 access points deliver the fastest 11ac yet, and come with multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) aware Aruba Networks ClientMatch to boost network efficiency and support the growing device density demands on your network.

In the past, an AP stream could only transmit to one device at a time, and other clients had to wait their turn. Now, with Aruba Networks ClientMatch, Aruba Networks APs can group MU-MIMO capable devices on Wave 2 APs, increasing network capacity. Even the slowest clients get a boost. Why Is Everyone Deploying 802.11ac Now? — Get ready. Well over 1,000 models of mobile devices sold today are 802.11ac-certified and they’ll be connecting at a workplace near you. This has enterprises scrambling to future proof their networks in preparation for the influx of 802.11ac devices. Why Aruba Networks 802.11ac Wave 2? — Aruba Networks’ latest 802.11ac Wave 2 APs are a cut above the competition. The 300, 310, 320, and 330 series are powered by Aruba Networks ClientMatch technology — making sure all devices have the fastest connection at all times and multi-user MIMO capable devices can actually make use of the technology. They come with an integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon to help remotely manage battery-powered Aruba Networks Beacons.

IntroSpect User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) uses AI-based machine learning to spot changes in user behavior that often indicate inside attacks that have evaded perimeter defenses. Security teams are armed with insights into malicious, compromised or negligent users, systems and devices — cutting off the threat before it does damage. Entity360 represents an entity’s security-relevant activity regardless of data source, devices used or activity type. It includes a risk score (0 to 100) as well as a full security profile with hours worth of investigation available in a single click. Entity risk scores based on machine learning can account for key factors like the order and time of incidents across various attack stages as well as time since detection and business context.

Accurate, normalized scores mean security analysts can confidently prioritize their efforts. Machine learning-based analytics build baselines for normal behavior of both individual entities and groups by continuously monitoring IT activities — like authentication, remote access, internal access to high-value resources and cloud app usage — across network and log data. Attack detection and forensics are intrinsically tied together, providing analysts with instant access to complete investigative records. Security teams can now triage more efficiently, make more informed decisions, and respond before damage is done. Aruba security provides 360 degree protection by combining ClearPass network access control with behavior analytics-based attack detection and alerting for a complete solution that secures your organization from malicious threats.


Using policy management in a mobile environment, where users connect over wireless and wired networks throughout the day solves a set of entirely new challenges that didn’t previously exist. If a device is denied access today, user and it productivity is lost. With the right policy management approach, it organizations can ensure that the growing universe of #GenMobile workers get instant access to the apps, printers and network services they’re authorized to use, no matter where they are or what device they have. Mobile devices — authentication services are fairly consistent between AAA and policy management systems.

However, any form of health checks or device interrogation will require a policy management system. A critical policy management capability entails making real-time decisions based on intelligence gathered from devices using NAC and/or MDM agents. the policy management system determines if a device can connect, if remediation is required or if access should be denied. Most it organizations currently rely on active Directory or lDap to assign and enforce security policies for users and devices.


Aruba is in the midst of a massive transition away from networking technologies that were designed for the 20th century when mobile, IoT and cloud did not exist. The surge in mobile and IoT means that the wired and wireless network must deliver more than just connectivity — the network is expected to provide actionable insights about the use of mobile and IoT to justify future investments, so that businesses can adopt new technologies and serve the needs of GenMobile — while keeping the network secure and without breaking the budget.

Cloud networking — Aruba Central manages, monitors and secures wired, Wi-Fi and wide area networks from the public cloud. Thanks to its multi-tenant operation, it enables Aruba and end users to support multiple disparate networks from a single location. Aruba Networks Mobile First Networks are optimized for today’s enterprise and SMB environments where mobile and IoT are pervasive. Aruba Mobile First Platform is the software layer between the Aruba network infrastructure and is designed to share rich, contextual insights with third-party business, IT and end-user facing applications.

Mobile Virtual Enterprise

This capability enables guests to quickly and easily navigate hospitality properties, and, via Aruba Networks Beacons, for hospitality marketing departments to engage them using context-relevant, location-based services while they are doing so. Operating over Aruba Networks’ PIC — compliant Wi-Fi networks, these devices reliably stay connected to the back-office LightSpeed database as users roam, allowing sales to be processed anywhere in the store. Aruba Networks’ context-aware Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture provides policy enforcement based on device-fingerprinting, application-fingerprinting, and location, ensuring a good in-store experience by prioritizing LightSpeed’s mobile POS applications over other less critical network traffic.

Monscierge is a global software company specializing in innovative hospitality solutions for properties, owners and brands. Monscierge Connect enhances communication between a hotel’s guest and staff through mobile, tablet, large-format touch-screen devices, and a central web-based platform that manages property content. Skyfii IO is a mobile technology and venue analytics company whose solutions capture, analyze, and visualize customer behavior.

Mobility Controllers

Enterprises moving to voice and video calling on Wi-Fi need their IT departments to design a wireless infrastructure that supports these apps at high density. Wired infrastructure — the integration of the HP Enterprise and Aruba Networks access portfolios is a key ingredient in Aruba's mobile-first approach. As organizations transition to the digital workplace, they won’t need as many ports as before because of the increased use of Wi-Fi. Although a highly mobile workforce means that the majority of users will connect via wireless, the surge in IoT devices and the increasing use of Wi-Fi bandwidth means that the wired infrastructure is critical, too.

Predict network issues before they happen — with the huge scale of devices connecting to the network, IT needs granular visibility into the access layer — at the user, device, and app level — to keep things running without disruptions to the business. Aruba Networks AirWave is a powerful and easy-to-use network management system that manages Aruba Networks wired, wireless, and remote access networks, as well as multi vendor wired and wireless infrastructures.
