Boost performance and scalability

Boost performance and scalability

The 9100 Series Hybrid Gateways are modern edge appliances that support up to 4K APs and 10K clients. With compact 1U form factor and high-speed 10 GbE connectivity, this modern AOS-10 gateway brings fast, resilient Wi-Fi connectivity supporting live upgrades, clustering, and redundancy so users and IoT devices have 24x7 access to enterprise services.

Increase edge security

Increase edge security

Deliver consistent policy enforcement via Dynamic Segmentation. Granular rules can be defined for any user, application, or device—including IoT—across wired and wireless networks. The Layer 4-7 Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF) provides identity-based controls to enforce application-layer security and prioritization.

Eliminate branch complexity

Eliminate branch complexity

Simplify management and enhance security with HPE Aruba Networking EdgeConnect SD-Branch that combines best-in-class wireless, wired, and WAN infrastructure with unified management capabilities to maximize performance and minimize operational costs. Quickly define, tune, and optimize connectivity across a hybrid WAN of Internet, MPLS, and cellular.

Streamline operations

Streamline operations

With AI-powered insights, workflow automation, and robust security, cloud-native HPE Aruba Networking Central simplifies the management and orchestration of campus, branch, remote, and data center networks. Zero Touch Provisioning simplifies deployment at branch sites.

Modern gateways for a scalable and secure edge

Purpose-built high-performance edge appliance extends enterprise services to large branch and small campus networks.

Versatile scalability

Supports up to 4K APs and 10K clients and can be deployed as an SD-Branch gateway, as a powerful cloud-based wireless gateway, or as a VPN Concentrator (VPNC).

Quality of service

Consistently optimizes performance and usage policies for 3,800+ applications using deep packet inspection.

Seamless L2/L3 roaming

Supports tunneling so two disparate networks can connect directly to one another for seamless L2/L3 roaming in multi-VLAN environments.
