AOS 8 International Deployment

When working with a customer who is looking to deploy AOS 8 internationally - let's say US, Europe, and Japan managed devices - what would that design look like? 

 

I can see two methods here:

 

1. MM/Standby MM configured for their respective domain, each MD in it's own device group, also configured for their respective domain - still providing single point of management and intelligence. Each group has it's own AP sys profile permitting the proper channels.

 

2. MM/Standby MM for each domain, and the corresponding MD below it. Resulting in (3) MM/MD deployments and not a single point of management.

 

What is the right way of doing this?

Hi Michael,

If you create AP groups for geo locations and setup ‘geo’ based MC cluster and have a central MM/standby MM, can’t you then specify per AP group the geo location? (Which lines up with the mc cluster settings for that location?

Re: AOS 8 International Deployment

Good question, I'm not sure. I think that may be part of my question as well. Basically - If the regulatory domain of the controllers (MDs) are US, ROW, JP - Can they all be managed by a MM/Standby MM that is let's say US based?

Hi Michael,

I am not able to build it in my lab this week due to other work.

A CAP always follows the MC it is connected to regarding regulatory domain. In ArubaOS 6.x AFAIK you could have a central master/standby master and controllers per geo location. I don’t think it is much different with 8.x.

Re: AOS 8 International Deployment

Yes you can , the only thing you may need to consider is doing a distributed AirGroup deployment (of course if airgroup will be used) so that traffic is doesnt have to come back to the MM to be processed

Great thank you both for the info, that is helpful. Hard to find documentaiton on international design for AOS 8 in particular, but I know it's still new to many.

Hi Victor,

Good one Airgroup. Luckely we have Aruba 8.2.x or above

Re: AOS 8 International Deployment

Victor,

 

I thought i had read that MM's deployed in the US would not support controllers in other regulatory domains.  Do you for a fact that this is possible?  I am working on planning a global deployment that currently had masters deployed in US and APAC regions.

 

Thanks,

Re: AOS 8 International Deployment

The MMs or Masters can be in the US and can configure ROW controllers but the local access points need to terminate on a local controller that will support their regulatory domain.
