    ArubaOS - Run by WAPs other than the InstantON line.
    ArubaOS-Switch - Run by ProVision based switches (i.e. 2500, 2900, 3800, 5400, etc).
    ArubaOS-CX - Run by Aruba's next generation switches (6200, 6300, 6400, 8200, etc).

    Released version history is way too complicated to post here.  Google is your friend.

    Hi Yash,

    as John said that is too much for a forum chat. Best would be to contact an Aruba Business Partner or an Aruba representitive. Here we can tell you the differences and what works best for your demands.

    Hello Yash,

    1. ArubaOS <- To be honest, the nearer thing (in terms of "simulation capabilities") I know of is the ArubaOS Virtual Controller (Mobility Master Virtual Appliance/Mobility Controller Virtual Appliance)...but I'm not sure it can be seen exactly as a "simulation software" you want.
    2. ArubaOS-Switch (ex HP ProVision OS) <- No, no "simulation software" is publicly available.
    3. ArubaOS-CX <- Yes, look for latest ArubaOS-CX 10.05 OVA here (the ArubaOS-CX Simulation Software OVA is a virtual platform to enable simulation of the ArubaOS-CX Network).
