Aruba Switches Primary Use Case

AmrIssa
Chief Information Officer at mobica
The primary use case of this solution is for access points. You can look at any site and take the static ID, or the real ID. It's similar to VPN. With the access point, you take the real ID and install it in the controller, you then access the site with this access point. We are interior designers and we have many showroom sites, we use the Aruba controller. We have twenty-five Aruba Switches with fifteen to twenty access points. We are using the 205 and 215 series. The bandwidth is 1gHz. View full review »

The 5400 series is a modular chassis-based switch and it allows us to buy parts for different needs, such as 10 gigs, or a one gig ethernet over copper for workstations. It's really our core switch and we actually have a couple of different models. That's in our headquarters, and then we have some other sites that use Aruba. I think they're the 2600 series or 2700 series, the smaller, modular ones, and stackable ones. Not the chassis-based. View full review »

We had a need to implement a distributed data center, split over two different sites, which were still more or less in each other's vicinity, less than a kilometer apart. The Aruba CX line products was one of the candidates in review and it was deemed the most logical choice We are customers of Aruba and I'm the team leader of technical support. View full review »

Network Security Engineer at a computer software company with 51-200 employees
We use and sell the 800 series switch. We compare the Aruba switches to the comparable Cisco switches as they have a similar feature set. We can sell them primarily because they cost less than Cisco. We use the Virtual Switching Extension feature that Aruba has for better performance and high availability. Aruba switches can be used in small and large businesses. View full review »
