Aruba mobile-first architecture
Aruba’s mobile-first Infrastructure is an architectural blueprint for networks that are designed to support mission critical application and usage rather they are running on the wired or wireless infrastructure, it is designed to close the gap between the wired and wireless experience, to deliver high performance and high availability of the wireless network. It enables clients to be completely flexible when it comes to connectivity, they can enjoy the same experience and network privileges rather they connect to a wired port or via the office Wi-Fi.
