Unique high availability

The ability of AOS-CX to maintain a synchronous state across dual control planes allows a unique high-availability solution called Aruba Virtual Switching Extension (VSX). VSX is delivered through redundancy gained by deploying two chassis with an inter-switch link while each chassis maintains independent control.

Increased visibility and control

Aruba AIOps offers real-time, network-wide visibility with analytics in every switch. Aruba’s next-generation AI uniquely combines network and user-centric analytics to not only identify and inform staff of anomalies, but also apply decades of networking expertise to analyze and provide prescriptive actions with greater than 95% accuracy.
