Product Differentiators

AOS-CX - a modern software system

The Aruba CX 6100 Switch Series is based on AOS-CX, a modern, database-driven operating system that is built on a modular Linux architecture. This operating system provides the following unique capabilities:

  • Easy access to all network configuration state information
  • REST APIs for fine-grained programmability of network tasks
  • A micro-services architecture that enables full integration with other workflow systems and services
  • All software processes communicate with the database rather than each other, ensuring near real-time state and resiliency

Aruba ASICs - programmable innovation

Based on over 30 years of continuous investment, Aruba’s ASICs create the basis for innovative and agile software feature advancements, unparalleled performance and deep visibility. These programmable ASICs are purpose-built to allow for a tighter integration of switch hardware and software within campus and data center architectures to optimize performance and capacity. The Aruba CX 6100 is based on the Aruba ASIC architecture.

Aruba Central - unified single pane of glass management

Flexible cloud-based or on-premises management for unified network operations of wired, WLAN, SD-WAN, and public cloud infrastructure. Designed to simplify day zero through day two operations with streamlined workflows. Switch management capabilities include configuration, onboarding, monitoring, troubleshooting, and reporting.

Aruba NetEdit – automated switch configuration and management

The entire Aruba CX portfolio empowers IT teams to orchestrate multiple switch configuration changes for smooth end-to-end service rollouts. Aruba NetEdit introduces automation that allows for rapid network-wide changes, and ensures policy conformance post network updates. Intelligent capabilities include search, edit, validation (including conformance checking), deployment and audit features. Capabilities include:

  • Centralized configuration with validation for consistency and compliance
  • Time savings via simultaneous viewing and editing of multiple configurations
  • Customized validation tests for corporate compliance and network design
  • Automated large-scale configuration deployment without programming

Note: A separate software license is required to use Aruba NetEdit.

Mobility and IoT performance

The Aruba CX 6100 Switch Series uses internally developed Aruba ASICs that provide very low latency, increased packet buffering, and adaptive power consumption. Each switch includes the following:
