Why move to ArubaOS 8?

ArubaOS 8 can be deployed as a virtual machine running on servers, significantly simplifying moves, adds, and changes in your infrastructure. This gives you flexibility to just buy the licenses you need and install the VMC software to get started, without waiting for controller hardware.

High performance Wi-Fi — even at high density.

Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) dynamically adjusts the RF environment to maximize Wi-Fi stability and predictability. And the AirMatch technology in Mobility Master further enhances ARM with automated channel optimization, transmit power adjustment and a channel width tuning system that uses dynamic machine learning intelligence to generate an optimal view of the entire Wi-Fi network.

Access points with multiple tenants.

Enabled via Aruba Mobility Master, Aruba MultiZone allows IT organizations to use the same Aruba access point hardware and offer different wireless networks to terminate on different mobility controllers. This allows for easier implementation of security policies where maintaining data privacy across different networks are important, without the need to install separate wireless networks.


Improve WLAN capacity.

Aruba’s ClientMatch technology eliminates sticky clients and boosts Wi-Fi performance by ensuring that clients associate with the best access point.
