Aruba has expanded its switch portfolio to include new software and switches that bring the company’s automation and software intelligence to campus networks.
The HPE company is offering up a new release of its switch software – AOS-CX 10.4 – and the Aruba stackable CX 6300 and modular CX 6400 Series switches. The company also said it had integrated its switch-configuration software, NetEdit, into its Network Analytics Engine (NAE). NAE uses embedded analytics and automation to simplify management, accelerate troubleshooting of application-performance issues and remediate common network problems, Aruba stated.
AOS-CX is the network operating system software that Aruba introduced with its first core switch – the 19.2Tb/sec 8400 programmable, modular campus core and aggregation switch in 2017. Aruba describes AOS-CX as a cloud-native, programmable software package that can automate and simplify many critical and complex network functions such as end-to-end network monitoring, troubleshooting, network performance and security-related issues.
