Switches still create the foundation of modern networks, yet their role has moved beyond purely providing high-performance wired connectivity. Switches must now offer high-performance Wi-Fi aggregation and also act as an IoT gatekeeper for everything from surveillance cameras to medical devices – all while delivering uninterrupted 24x7 network availability.
The goal of this workshop is to implement Aruba’s Dynamic Segmentation using AOS-CX switching, ClearPass Policy Manager, and AOS8 security gateways in harmony to leverage Aruba’s foundational role-based network access control.
Combining these elements enables seamless distribution and automatic application of security policies with the appropriate access levels for any given user, whether wired or wireless.
In this workshop, you will configure and validate the following:
- Basic Routing and Switching with AOS-CX
- AAA Configuration including wired 802.1X and MAC Authentication
- ClearPass Policy Manager
- Downloadable User Roles
- AOS8 User Roles and Firewall Policies
- User-Based Tunneling
- Virtual Network-Based Tunneling
