PRODUCT DIFFERENTIATORS | AOS-CX - a modern software system

The Aruba CX 6000 Switch Series is based on AOSCX, a modern, database-driven operating system that is built on a modular Linux architecture. With the CX 6000 series, the benefits of the AOS-CX architecture is extended to small enterprise deployments providing the following unique capabilities:

  • Easy access to all network configuration state information
  • REST APIs for fine-grained programmability of network tasks
  • A micro-services architecture that enables full integration with other workflow systems and services
  • All software processes communicate with the database rather than each other, ensuring near real-time state and resiliency

Aruba ASICs - programmable innovation

Based on over 30 years of continuous investment, Aruba's ASICs create the basis for innovative and agile software feature advancements, unparalleled performance and deep visibility. These programmable ASICs are purpose-built to allow for a tighter integration of switch hardware and software within campus and data center architectures to optimize performance and capacity. The Aruba CX 6000 is based on the Aruba ASIC architecture.
