Mobile devices, IoT and business critical applications are enabling mobile workers to be more productive and efficient, but at the same time driving up the demands on the network.
ArubaOS8 is the operating system for all Aruba Mobility Controllers, Virtual Mobility Controllers, Mobility Master andcontroller-managed wireless access points.
The Mobility Master is a new component of the Aruba architecture. It enables customers to take advantage of advanced features that require central coordination and for networks to scale due to increased demand for mobile and IoT devices. It also replaces the prior functions of the master controller and can be either deployed as a VM or an x86 hardware appliance. The Mobility Master provides automatic RF optimization and enables hitless failover in the face of a controller outage.
With an extensive set of integrated technologies, OS 8 delivers unified wired and wireless access, seamless roaming, enterprise grade security and an always-on network with the required performance, user experience and reliability to support high density environments. As a result, customers can easily share rich contextual information in real-time with third party business and IT applications.
Aruba’s current customers with Mobility Controllers can upgrade from ArubaOS version 6 to version 8 and immediately benefit from some of the new features and capabilities
