Product Differentiators

AOS-CX - a modern software system

The Aruba CX 8320 Switch Series is based on AOS-CX, a modern, database-driven operating system that automates and simplifies many critical and complex network tasks. A built-in time series database enables customers and developers to utilize software scripts for historical troubleshooting, as well as analysis of past trends. This helps predict and avoid future problems due to scale, security, and performance bottlenecks.

Our AOS-CX software also includes Aruba Network Analytics Engine (NAE) and support for Aruba NetEdit. Because AOS- CX is built on a modular Linux architecture with a stateful database, our operating system provides the following unique capabilities:

  • Easy access to all network state information allows unique visibility and analytics
  • REST APIs and Python scripting for fine-grained programmability of network tasks
  • A micro-services architecture that enables full integration with other workflow systems and services
  • Continual state synchronization that provides superior fault tolerance and high availability
  • All software processes communicate with the database rather than each other, ensuring near real-time state and resiliency and allowing individual software modules to be independently upgraded for higher availability

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 Network Analytics Engine - advanced monitoring and diagnostics

For enhanced visibility and troubleshooting, Aruba’s Network Analytics Engine (NAE) automatically interrogates and analyzes events that can impact a networks health. Advanced telemetry and automation provide the ability to easily identify and troubleshoot network, system, application and security related issues easily, through the use of python agents, CLI- based agents and REST APIs.

The Time Series Database (TSDB) stores configuration and operational state data, making it available to quickly resolve network issues. The data may also be used to analyze trends, identify anomalies and predict future capacity requirements.

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
  • Network health and topology visibility via Aruba NAE integration

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

Aruba CX Mobile App – unparalleled deployment convenience

An easy to use mobile app simplifies connecting and managing Aruba CX switches for any size project. Switch information can also be imported into Aruba NetEdit for simplified configuration management and to continuously validate the conformance of configurations anywhere in the network. The Aruba CX Mobile App is available for download.
