Aruba’s Mobility Access Switches are a new class of product enabling secure, role-based network access for wired users and devices, independent of their location or application. It’s the only wired network solution designed for today’s mobile enterprise workforce.
Installed in wiring closets, the Mobility Access Switch delivers up to 384 wire-speed Gigabit Ethernet switch ports and operates as a wired access point when deployed with an Aruba Mobility Controller.
As a wired access point, users and their devices are authenticated and assigned a unique role by the Mobility Controller. These roles are consistently applied whether the user is a Wi-Fi client, or connects to a port on the Mobility Access Switch. This eliminates the need to manage and provision separate wireless and wired access policies.
The result is an enterprise workforce that has consistent, secure access to network resources based on who they are – no matter where they are, what device they’re using or how they connect.
Two models of the Mobility Access Switch are available, the S3500 and S2500.
