    Hi, can Aruba 7000 and 7200 Mobility Controller run as Mobility Controller and SD-WAN gateway at the same time?

    Thank you.

    It's either controller or gateway. If you use it as SD-WAN gateway you need to have your APs as Central managed IAPs. Currently theres some limit as how large IAP cluster you can have (128?) but with AOS10 you can have as large clusters as you wish

    An Mobility Controller 9000/7000/7200 can run in two modes "Campus Mode" or "SD-Branch Mode" both modes have there own firmware and can't run on the same controller in the same time. For SD-Branch you will need a Aruba Central subscription. All 9000/7000/7200 can be run in Branch Gateway Mode, the 7000/7200 can run in Headend Gateway mode (VPN Concentrator) but the 7000 is limited supported for this mode.
