The ClearPass Deployment Guide is intended to assist Aruba SEs and network administrators, as well as
customers and partners, in deploying ClearPass Policy Manager.
This guide is organized in a way that presents the recommended sequence in which ClearPass deployment
should take place, and makes the major deployment tasks easy to understand and implement.
The ClearPass Deployment Guide includes the following information:
l Chapter 1: Install and configure ClearPass hardware and virtual appliances.
l Chapter 2: Prepare the Aruba Mobility Controller for integration with ClearPass Policy Manager.
l Chapter 3: Integrate ClearPass Policy Manager with Microsoft Active Directory.
l Chapter 4: Set up 802.1X wireless authentication with Active Directory.
l Chapter 5: Design and deploy ClearPass clusters.
l Chapter 6: Configure the Aruba Mobility Access Switch for 802.1X wired authentication.
l Chapter 7: Prepare ClearPass for LDAP and SQL authentication.
l Appendix A: Describes how a typical 802.1X authentication session flows when using ClearPass as the
authentication server with Microsoft Active Directory as the back-end user identity repository.
l Appendix B: Use the ClearPass Configuration API to configure or modify the entities in ClearPass without
logging into the Admin user interface. Information about how to access the entire set of APIs available
through ClearPass is also provided.

This VRD covers the deployment of Aruba WLAN in a typical campus network, and it is considered part of the Base Designs within the VRD core technologies series. This guide covers the design recommendations for a campus deployment and it explains the various configurations needed to implement the Aruba secure, highperformance, multimedia grade WLAN solution in large campuses.
Aruba WLAN has a logical four-tier operating model that consists of these four layers:
Management - The management layer consists of AirWave®. AirWave provides a single point of management for the WLAN, including reporting, heat maps, centralized configuration, and troubleshooting.
Network services - The network services layer consists of master mobility controllers and Amigopod. Amigopod provides secure and flexible visitor management services. The master controllers provide a control plane for the Aruba WLAN that spans the physical geography of the wired network. The control plane does not directly deal with user traffic or access points (APs). Instead the control plane provides services such as whitelist coordination, valid AP lists, Control Plane Security (CPSec) certificates, Radio Frequency Protect (RFProtect™) coordination, and Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) or authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) proxy.
Aggregation - The aggregation layer is the interconnect point where the AP, air monitor (AM), and spectrum monitor (SM) traffic aggregates. This layer provides a logical point for enforcement of roles and policies on centralized traffic that enters or exits the enterprise LAN.
Network access - The network access layer is comprised of APs, AMs, and SMs that work together with the aggregation layer controllers to overlay the Aruba WLAN.

RF and Roaming Optimization for Aruba 802.11ac Networks
This Solution guide covers design recommendations and best practices to achieve best RF performance and seamless roaming on Aruba 802.11ac Networks. This solution guide is best applicable for office and university campus/dorms environments. It mainly covers four areas: 1) AP Placement, 2) RF Consideration, 3) Roaming Optimization, 4) Device Specific Recommendations.
This solution guide is designed for Aruba Mobility controllers running ArubaOS 6.3.x and later. It assumes that reader has a working knowledge of Aruba WLAN architecture and has already deployed it in an enterprise or campus environment.
ArubaOS is the operating system, software suite, and application engine that operates Aruba mobility controllers and centralizes control over the entire mobile environment. The ArubaOS wizards, command-line interface (CLI), and the ArubaOS Web UI are the primary means used to configure and deploy ArubaOS. For a complete description of ArubaOS, refer to the ArubaOS User Guide for your release.
