  • The Mobility Controller Virtual Appliance (VMC), managed by Aruba's Mobility Conductor or deployed standalone, runs ArubaOS to deliver 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 VMC also serves as the key policy enforcement agent within the Dynamic Segmentation. 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 Mobility Conductor, the VMC takes advantage of the full ArubaOS feature set, including AI-powered AirMatch, live firmware upgrades and secure multi-tenant SSID segmentation (MultiZone).

    With support for up to 1,000 APs, the VMC is deployed over existing virtualization environments, including VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V and open-source KVM for maximum flexibility.

    • Simple deployment for virtual environments

      Easily spin up and manage a Mobility Controller using your existing infrastructure and centralized Mobility Conductor appliance.

    • 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.
