Aruba Switches Pricing and License Cost

This solution is not cheap and they don't have a plan to certify it as Cisco does. Cisco is a famous vendor with options for certification. Aruba does not have a certified license in ARC and CNV. Their certification is for the marketing of the device in Cisco. The license is annual. If you purchase a switch, you get a one-year free subscription. Aruba has better pricing than Cisco.

We just had all the licenses for five years included in the bidding process. Since the competitive nature of the resulting contract, our actual costs might not reflect the standard market prices. Due to the visibilityof our project, Aruba has been generous with the included amount of licenses, which will serve us for years to come. View full review »

The price point was a big consideration for us and it is reasonable enough that we're able to standardize on Aruba for the networking pieces in our organization. This also includes Wi-Fi and access points. Generally speaking, the price is good. View full review »

For Aruba, there is no licensing to deal with, and that's the best. For features or protocols, no licensing is ever needed. View full review »
