Mobility Controller vs ArubaCentral



If I have 4 branches and each branches had an access point about 20 unit. I would like to manage all IAP by single point at HQ or clould. Could you help me to recommend the solution for this case




Re: Mobility Controller vs ArubaCentral

I am not aware of iAP control being a feature of the Mobility Controller (someone correct me if I'm wrong)


What you'd want to compare is Airwave vs Aruba Central

I'm a big Airwave fan, but for 4 sites, I'd wither manage them seperately or on the cloud platform.


if I've helped, please give kudos
if I've provided a solution, please mark the solution so others can find it

Re: Mobility Controller vs ArubaCentral



You can use Airwave if all sites have network (IP) connection to the HQ where Airwave can manage all the VC controllers as separated instances.

You can use Aruba Central to manage all the sites, separated in groups inside Central, were each group may have different configurations.

The benefit of using central is that you can extend some features like captive portal and analytics by adding feature licenses.

This could provide, for example, a self registering captive for guest users and even information about users and presence data.


I believe that Central requires less effort to be running and improves some features that might be useful.
