• The S3500 Mobility Access Switch extends role-based user access, security and operational simplicity to wired networks. It delivers secure, virtualized access services to users, regardless of location, access method, device or applications.

    Mobility Access Switches can be interconnected to form an ArubaStack™. This provides connectivity for up to 384 Gigabit Ethernet devices such as APs, virtual desktops, IP phones, classroom peripherals, medical devices, point-of-sale devices and security cameras.

    • 802.11ac-ready wired network

      Supports 802.3at with PoE+ on every port and 10-gigabit uplinks to eliminate performance degradation and traffic congestion.
    • Mobility-centric wired solution

      Applies policies to wired users and devices based on contextual data – user roles, device types, application and location.
    • Designed for high-density large offices

      Incorporates modular, hot-swappable components and redundant power supplies with four 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks.
