Aruba 7000 series Cloud Services Controllers optimize cloud services and secure enterprise applications at branch offices while providing configuration, management, encryption, and application visibility to ensure the reliable delivery of network services.
The 7005, 7010 and 7030 Cloud Services Controllers support 16, 32 and 64 APs, respectively. The Cloud Services Controllers also unify policy management for wired and wireless, making it simple and cost-effective to create an all-wireless workplace at branch offices.
Capable of handling up to 4,000 users, the 7000 series performs stateful firewall policy enforcement at up to 8 Gbps. Secure IP tunnels protect branch traffic across the public and private transport network to the cloud and headquarters. Local bridging can be performed, depending on end-user applications or IT traffic forwarding requirements.
The 7000 series also supports Aruba's Next-Generation Mobility Firewall with AppRF™ technology, which continuously evaluates app usage and performance and makes configuration changes in real-time to ensure optimal bandwidth, priority and network paths in branch offices.
This ensures the best possible app experience in the branch, even for apps that are hidden as encrypted or web traffic. And IT gets unprecedented insight into over 1,500 apps, including cloud and web-based apps like Lync, SharePoint, Box, GoToMeeting and Salesforce.com. A real-time dashboard makes it easy to identify and correct quality-of-service tags, load-balance specific apps across APs, adjust RF management and roaming parameters for latency-sensitive apps, and apply bandwidth contracts per app or for a group of apps.
The 7000 series supports other enterprise-critical capabilities like authentication, encryption, VPN connections, IPv4 and IPv6 services, the Policy Enforcement Firewall™, Adaptive Radio Management™ and ClientMatch™ technologies, and RFProtect™ spectrum analysis and wireless intrusion protection.
