  • The Mobility Master simplifies the management of multiple Aruba controllers running ArubaOS 8 or later. Key features include a centralized dashboard to easily see and manage controllers deployed in multiple sites, a hierarchical configuration tool to pre-stage network deployments, and the ability to perform live firmware and feature upgrades during active user sessions. The addition of licensing pools simplifies the transfer of licenses between different controllers to quickly address expanded deployment needs.

    The Mobility Master supports the latest Wi-Fi standards, including 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6), WPA3 and Enhanced Open – in addition to existing 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ad technologies. It also supports an enhanced ClientMatch, now with 802.11ax grouping and bidirectional MU-MIMO awareness. Organizations with existing Aruba 802.11ac Wave 2 APs can also support WPA3 and Enhanced Open security when clients support it.

    A unique feature called MultiZone enables organizations to deploy multiple distinct and secure networks using the same access point (AP) infrastructure – ideal for multi-tenant operations.

    Hardware and virtual appliance options make it easy to build and manage networks that support up to 100,000 clients, 10,000 network devices, or 1,000 Mobility Controllers (hardware and virtual formfactors).

    • Simplified operations with flexible deployment

      A software-defined architecture improves scalability and control for high density enterprise networks. Additionally, the Mobility Master enables intensive application and enhanced roaming services across mobility domains.
    • 24/7 networking with utility-grade reliability

      With the clustering of up to 12 controllers which then act like a single unit, the Mobility Master allows for live upgrades and seamless failover to eliminate network downtime - scheduled maintenance or unplanned outages.
    • Real-time automation for improved experiences

      AI-powered AirMatch™ technology automatically optimizes the RF environment, northbound APIs deliver unparalleled visibility, and App tuning (AppRF) offers simple-to-use network performance enhancements.
