Aruba Mobility Conductor

Delivering the full capabilities of ArubaOS, Aruba Mobility Conductors simplify the deployment and management of up to 1,000 Mobility Controllers to scale large campus deployments.

Greater scale and reliability

Aruba Mobility Conductors take advantage of the full capability of AI-powered ArubaOS, while enhancing the scale and reliability for large campus WLANs.

Manage policies at scale

Manage policies at scale

Serving a key role in Dynamic Segmentation and acting as policy enforcement agents, Mobility Conductors provide a single management layer for all controllers and virtual controllers.

24/7 mission-critical networking

24/7 mission-critical networking

Mobility Conductors deliver seamless roaming, enhanced security, and live upgrades, eliminating the need for planned maintenance windows or downtime.

Hitless failover and automated load balancing

Hitless failover and automated load balancing

User sessions and access point traffic are load-balanced within a Controller Cluster managed by the Mobility Conductor. This optimizes network utilization during peak periods and maximizes availability during unplanned outages.

Automate deployment

Automate deployment

Zero touch provisioning reduces operational costs and avoids provisioning errors. By deploying without local IT resources, a managed device will automatically discover the Mobility Conductor and download its local configuration.

24/7 high-performance Wi-Fi for large campuses

Controller clustering

Aruba Mobility Conductor manages up to 10,000 access points, clusters up to 12 controllers, and securely segments traffic from one access point to multiple controllers.

Live upgrade and multiple-version support

ArubaOS 8 or individual service modules can be upgraded alongside active sessions, eliminating planned maintenance windows and downtime.

Dynamic license management

Dynamically manage licenses based on site requirements by accessing licensing pools.

Support for AOS 8

Delivering AI-powered automation and advanced analytics, Mobility Controller and conductors running AOS 8 optimizes client connectivity, RF channels, power, and operator efficiency.

Available as a virtual appliance

Leverage existing virtual infrastructure by running the Mobility Conductor as a virtual appliance.
