  • The 7200 Series Mobility Controller running ArubaOS delivers industry-leading network services that maximize Wi-Fi performance, ensure seamless roaming, and extends secure VPN access for Remote APs, Instant APs and VIA VPN clients.

    The 7200 Series also serves as the key policy enforcement agent within the Dynamic Segmentation solution. Enforcement is accomplished through an industry-first user firewall (PEF), built-in Layer 7 application visibility and control, and web content filtering (WebCC).

    As part of a controller cluster managed by Aruba's Mobility Master, the 7200 Series can take advantage of the full ArubaOS feature set, including centralized configuration hierarchy, AI-powered AirMatch, live firmware upgrades and secure multi-tenant SSID segmentation (MultiZone).

    With support for up to 2,048 access points (APs), the 7200 Series provides up to 100 Gbps of firewall throughput – unparalleled capacity for the most demanding enterprise environments.

    • Security

      Support for the newest Wi-Fi Alliance standards

      Aruba's wireless technologies support new Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), WPA3, and Enhanced Open standards – ideal for today’s new wave of mobile and IoT devices and performance demands.
    • Dynamic Segmentation

      Dynamic Segmentation for simplicity and security

      Each 7200 series enforces granular user, device and application policies over both access points and network switches alike – eliminating the need to configure separate VLANs, ACLs and subnets.
    • AI-powered controls for improved WLAN experiences

      AirMatch applies machine-learning to automate RF optimization and adapt to changing WLAN conditions while ClientMatch improves client roaming and resolves sticky client issues.
