One of my customers wants to replace his current older Cxxxo WLAN hardware with new one. I offered him in the first step Aruba Instant with about 10 access points and the option to switch to a controller-based solution in the second/third step (at the moment max 60 APs).
He asks for a detailed and up to date comparison between the different Aruba solutions and his current Cisco stuff. Has anyone a link or document, where this comparison is already done?
Management software like Airwave or Clearpass haven't been discussed yet: That's maybe a topic after the replacement.
Thanks in advance!

I've asked the same question before and the main reasons are:
The main advantage of Aruba Instant APs is that it can work (1) standalone, (2) with cloud-based management and (3) controller-based management using the same hardware.
hope help u!

Could someone help understand what are differences between aruba instant and aruba central , currently we have controller based solution , basically with ISP connectivity issues between controller and AP's we are facing lot of issues.Looking for more simple design

Aruba Instant is the name for the Instant APs themselves and the controllerless code they run.
Central is a cloud-based management platform for configuration, monitoring, reporting and some guest features.
IAPs can be managed locally, with Aruba AirWave or with Aruba Central.
