Aruba Central vs AirWave



I am curently working with a customer that wants to renew both their wired and wireless network. 

For the wired part, they want to use 2930F switches enabling OSPF on some interfaces (I know that 2930F only supports one OSPF area and up to 8 interfaces)


For the wireless part, we have the following options:


- Controller-based WLAN with ArubaOS8 and AirWave

- IAPs with Aruba Central


I am aware that Aruba Central only works with IAPs. I wonder what are the advantages of using AirWave for monitoring and managing LAN and WLAN compared with Aruba Central.


Thanks for your help!
