Aruba CX8360 Series Switches
High-performance enterprise campus and data center switch


Aruba CX8360 Series


Overview:

The Aruba CX 8360 Switch Series offers a flexible and innovative approach to addressing the application, security, and scalability demands of the mobile, cloud, and IoT era. These switches serve the needs of the next-generation core and aggregation layer of campuses, as well as virtual and highly dynamic data center environments. They provide up to 2.4Tbps of capacity, with line-rate Gigabit Ethernet interfaces including 1Gbps, 10Gbps, 25Gbps, 40Gbps, and 100Gbps

The 8360 series includes industry-leading line rate ports with 1/10/25GbE (SFP/SFP+/SFP28) and 40/100 GbE (QSFP+/ QSFP28) connectivity in a compact 1U form factor. 4x10Gbps and 4x25Gbps break out from 40/100G ports offer advanced flexibility in connectivity and aggregation. These switches deliver a fantastic investment for customers wanting to migrate from older 1GbE/10GbE to faster 25GbE, or from 10GbE/40GbE uplinks to 100GbE ports.

In addition, the 32 x 25G port 8360 models support lowdensity MACsec ports and enable secured connectivity at 10GbE and 25GbE over unsecured domains.

Benefits:

The Aruba CX 8360 offers a flexible and innovative approach to addressing the application, security, and scalability demands of emerging end-to-end, enterprise edge-cloud network connectivity requirements.

Simplify your IT operations

Offering a combination of cutting-edge hardware, a cloud-native operating system, and intuitive software-defined orchestration tools, the CX 8360 helps to simplify operations, improve IT efficiency, and enable always-on network availability.

Accelerate IT provisioning

Aruba Fabric Composer, a smart, software-defined orchestration solution, simplifies operations, increases network speed, and enhances overall infrastructure provisioning.


Unique high availability

The ability of ArubaOS-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, with each chassis maintaining its 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.
