Environment : This applies to Aruba Instant Access Point starting from release.


An IPsec tunnel is configured to ensure that the data flow between the networks is encrypted. When configured, the IPSec tunnel to the controller secures corporate data. 

Starting from release, Instant allows you to enable automatic configuration of the GRE tunnel from an IAP to Aruba Mobility Controller. By using an IPsec connection, the IAPs can now set up a GRE tunnel with the controller. This feature eliminates the need for the manual configuration of tunnel interface on the controller.

Following figures from IAP web interface show us the configuration:
