Re: 7005 vs. 9004 MC

Hi Marcel,

 

can you confirm that the 9004 Gateway can work as a standalone controller?

 

I see it's mentioned in the datasheets but it also infers that a Mobility Master might be needed, could you please clarify this for me?

 

 

Best regards,

 

Aarón

Hi Aaron,

 

The 9004 can be used as standalone controller with or without a MM.

Re: 7005 vs. 9004 MC

There is SD-WAN and Controller based firmware. When you install the controller firmware you can run a 9004 in standalone mode without the need of a Aruba Mobility Master.

 

  • SD-WAN Mode – Aruba Central Foundation or Foundation Base Licenses (9004 and 9012 are supported)
  • ­ Controller Mode – AP License (9004 supported as of ArubaOS 8.5, and 9012 will be supported in a later release)

When you flashed the controller through Aruba Cloud Central it will install the SD-WAN firmware. You can download the controller based firmware here; https://asp.arubanetworks.com/downloads/software/RmlsZTo2NTRiMzdmNi03NmI0LTExZWEtOTY0NC0xMzRlYzBjMzEwNzg%3D

In this topic you see a image of working 9004 controller image (with mobility master) ;). MM is not required for a standalone controller!

In the 9004 datasheets you can find your clear statement Also how many AP can be terminated in controller mode.

7005 = 16 AP's

9004 =  32 AP's

The 9004 controller is excellent choice ;;)).
