HPE Aruba Networking 7000 Series Mobility Controllers and Gateways

Meeting the needs of small and mid-sized campuses has never been simpler.

Improved network performance, visibility, and control

Designed to support the needs of small to mid-sized campuses, the HPE Aruba Networking 7000 Series can act as a controller or gateway to deliver WAN intelligence, policy-based routing and enhanced security.

High performance, greater scale

High performance, greater scale

Ensuring the highest levels of performance and availability for small campuses and large branches, the 7000 Series delivers seamless L2/L3 roaming for thousands of users or client devices.

Simplify secure access

Simplify secure access

Easily centralize the configuration of role-based access controls with HPE Aruba Networking’s built-in Policy Enforcement Firewall for Dynamic Segmentation.

Eliminate branch complexity

Eliminate branch complexity

Deploying with SD-Branch software is a simple, affordable way to support multiple WAN connections (Internet, MPLS, and cellular), plus provide software-defined role-based policy enforcement and path optimization.

Product features that meet the needs of mid-sized campuses and branch environments

Flexible use cases

Support data centers, public cloud, and SaaS routing by deploying the 7000 Series for advanced Wi-Fi capabilities as a SD-Branch gateway.

Up to 64 APs and 8 Gbps of throughput

With multiple WAN connections, it’s ideal for mid-sized and distributed enterprises.

Dynamic Segmentation for simplicity and security

Enforcing granular user, device, and application policies over both access points and network switches means there's no need to configure separate VLANs, ACLs, and subnets.

Support for Wi-Fi standards

Offering WPA and Enhanced Open as part of 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6/6E), the 7000 provides enhanced security and backwards compatibility.

Machine learning and advanced analytics

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