AOS 10 branch mobility conductor architecture

    Posted 23 days ago

    We are looking at deploying something like a 9000 gateway at a branch that is connected via DIA. We are building out the rest of the network with AOS-CX switches that will be connecting back through 7220 controllers (so we will be doing UBT) and all of this is managed by Central since we are on AOS 10. When we looked at the branch controllers before it was in an AOS 8 environment and descriptions of how this works in AOS 10 seem kind of scarce. The site has wired and wireless and the 7220s are deployed as wired and wireless clusters. Can we slave the 9000 off the 7220s as it AOS 8? Does the 9000 have to run as a layer 3 device or can we deploy layer 2 VLANs in tunnels from the 7220s to the 9000? Is there a design guide that goes through this for AOS 10? Thanks all.

    with AOS10, there is no concept of mobility conductor and most of the functionality that mobility conductor provided are run in Aruba Central.

    Here you can find the AOS10 overview  which provides lots of info.

    Here you can find The validated ref guides for it.

    If my post was useful accept solution and/or give kudos.
    Any opinions expressed here are solely my own and not necessarily that of HPE or Aruba.

    Thanks, ariyap. Someone pitched edge connect to us but when you hear it in a 1 hour blitz it's hard to retain anything. This should help.
