Aruba’s modern, programmable switches easily integrate with our industry leading network management solutions, either cloud-based Aruba Central or on premise Aruba AirWave.
Aruba’s portfolio is designed to meet the challenges of the Mobile-Cloud and IoT era where visibility, automation, and security have become table stakes.
HPE Aruba Switches also come with built-in security features designed for mobile and IoT. Integration with Aruba ClearPass for advanced policy management delivers security and connectivity management. Customers have access to a complete portfolio ranging from entry level compact 8 port Layer 2 access switches to resilient and scalable campus core and aggregation switches that deliver 19.2Tbps switching capacity, carrier-class high availability. Automated visibility features reduce network complexity and enables faster response times when issues are encountered.
Aruba campus core switches—game-changing innovation
The core has seen very little innovation in the past few decades and the disruptive storm of mobility and IoT is necessitating a change in status quo. Aruba’s game-changing solution offers a flexible and innovative approach to dealing with the new applications, security and scalability demands of the mobile-cloud and IoT era.
Aruba 8400 Core and Aggregation Switch Series
High density modular Layer 3 campus core chassis with a modern, fully programmable OS and 19.2 Tbps of switching capacity and carrier grade hardware. This series ensures high performance and availability with line rate 10/40/100GbE for plenty of back haul capacity and runs on the new Aruba OS-CX, a modern programmable software system for the core that automates and simplifies many critical and complex network tasks with the Aruba Network Analytics Engine. The advanced Layer 3 feature set includes IPv4, IPV6, BGP, and VRF.
High performance Layer 3 campus core switching with a modern, fully programmable OS and 2.5Tbps switching capacity.

Aruba access switches—high performance, secure connectivity
Aruba’s access switches provide an integrated wireless-wired foundation with scalability, security and high performance for campus and branch networks. Programmable Aruba ProVision ASICs and ArubaOS-Switch software enable fast wireless aggregation and simplicity with unified role-based access across wireless and wired networks using the ability to identify and assign roles to users and IoT devices to prioritize business critical applications while securing the network.
With advanced security and network management tools—Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager, Aruba AirWave and cloudbased Aruba Central—this portfolio is simple to deploy, secure and centrally manage. Zero Touch Provisioning helps customers with remote branch sites with little or no IT support to quickly deploy with assurance of valid configurations.
Unique Dynamic Segmentation on Aruba’s Layer 3 switches provides user and port-based traffic tunneling to an Aruba Mobility Controller or Branch Gateway so that policies can be applied, advanced services can be extended to users and IoT devices, and traffic can be encrypted to secure and protect the network.
