Aruba Scales its WLAN System

Aruba Networks released major enhancements to its enterprise WLAN system, enabling a single Aruba WLAN system to support up to 1000 simultaneous 802.1X authentication transactions per second. Major enhancements include:

  • AAA FastConnect, a new capability supported on all mobility
    controllers delivers user connection rates ten times faster than
    competitive alternatives. This enables consistently fast connect times
    and ensures integration with existing back-end AAA services with increased resilience of WLAN connections.

  • VLAN Pooling for flexible, non-disruptive design and provisioning of campus WLANs

  • Self-configuring mobility controllers for zero-touch branch WLAN provisioning

  • Scalable, centralized management for thousands of distributed branch WLANs
