Modular Ethernet Switches

The past several decades in networking have been defined by static, closed networking solutions designed for the client-server era. The Aruba 8320 Switch Series, a campus core and aggregation switch, is a game-changing solution that offers an innovative approach to dealing with the demands of the mobile, cloud and IoT era. The Aruba 8320 is based on ArubaOS-CX, a modern software system that automates and simplifies critical and complex network tasks, delivers enhanced fault tolerance and facilitates zero-service disruption during planned or unplanned control-plane events. The key innovations in ArubaOS-CX are its micro-services style modular architecture, REST APIs, Python scripting capabilities and the Aruba Network Analytics Engine. The Aruba 8320 Switch Series provides line rate 10GbE/40GbE in a compact 1U form factor and together with the modular Aruba 8400 Switch, rounds out the Aruba Mobile First switching portfolio with an enterprise core and aggregation solution.
