Secure Enterprise Mesh

The Aruba secure enterprise mesh solution is an effective way to expand network coverage for outdoor and indoor enterprise environments without any wires. Using mesh, you can bridge multiple Ethernet Ethernet is a network protocol for data transmission over LAN. LANs or you can extend your wireless coverage. As traffic traverses across mesh APs, the mesh network automatically reconfigures around broken or blocked paths. This self-healing feature provides increased reliability and redundancy: the network continues to operate if an AP stops functioning or a connection fails. Aruba managed devices provide centralized configuration and management for APs in a mesh environment; local mesh APs provide encryption and traffic forwarding for mesh links.

The following topics in this describe the components of the Aruba secure enterprise mesh architecture and profiles, as well as factors that should be taken into consideration when planning your mesh deployment.
