We have made the decision to move our edge to Aruba's S3500 switching and routing platform. This comes after extensive testing and working closely with the Aruba engineering team to test out some core features.
Our plan is to deploy stacks of the S3500 as layer 3 edge switches aggregated back to an OSPF core. We have this working in our IT building and plan on bringing some more buildings up soon!
The big advantage of this is that we will be doing this campus wide in conjunction with a new dense deployment of AP135's. This will give us total edge visibility.
There are some killer features on this platform and more to come in the not so distant future.
So far from what we have seen this is a whole new world. Everything we loved about Aruba wireless has come over to switching ten fold.
