9004 Series Gateways

SD-WAN connectivity and security in a cost-effective, compact form factor

Request a Demo
  • The Aruba 9004 Series Gateways are ideally suited for small to medium-size branch deployments and serve as network appliances for SD-WAN and security. Multiple gateways can be grouped as a cluster in each branch for high availability and resiliency.

    The 9004 Series is configured and managed via Aruba Central, a simple-to-use cloud-based network operations, assurance and security platform. An optional mobile installer app simplifies on-site deployments to optimize IT resources.

    Designed with the flexibility to support the most demanding branch environments – the 9004 gateways provide connectivity for up to 40 times the maximum client density and up to 10 times the maximum throughput of typical SD-WAN appliances.

    • SD-WAN

      Simple SD-WAN management with great scalability

      Deploy SD-WAN using a simple mobile app and provide up to 10 times the performance of typical SD-WAN appliances with a maximum 2Gbps of throughput.
    • Dynamic Segmentation

      Dynamic Segmentation for network traffic enforcement

      Supports simple to use mobile and IoT device policy enforcement for wired and wireless.
    • IoT

      Built for IoT and the cloud

      Supports up to 2,048 devices using cloud access, which is up to 40 times greater density than average SD-WAN appliances.
