The Aruba CX 6400 Switch Series is a modern, flexible and intelligent family of modular switches ideal for access, aggregation and core in enterprise campus and data center deployments. Created for game-changing operational efficiency with built-in security and resiliency, the 6400 switches provide the foundation for high-performance networks supporting IoT, mobile and cloud applications.

Built from the ground up with a combination of cuttingedge hardware, software and analytics and automation tools, the 6400 switches are part of the Aruba CX switching portfolio, designed for today's enterprise campus, branch and data center networks. By combining a modern, fully programmable OS with the Aruba Network Analytics Engine, the 6400 switches provide industry leading monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities across the network.

A powerful Aruba Gen7 ASIC architecture delivers performance and robust feature support with flexible programmability for tomorrow's applications. The Aruba Virtual Switching Extension (VSX) allows for high availability, and also enables non-disruptive fast upgrades and simplified management. This flexible series offers powerful connectivity options in a 5 or 10 slot compact chassis with non-blocking 2.8Tb fabric per slot and high density IEEE 802.3bt high power PoE. HPE Smart Rate multi-gigabit Ethernet paves the way for high speed access points and IoT devices by delivering fast connectivity and high power PoE using existing cabling. Line rate interfaces include 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE ports1 (50GbE transceiver capability will be enabled in future software release). High speed interconnect and Aruba VSX using 50G DACs.

Aruba Dynamic Segmentation extends Aruba's foundational wireless role-based policy capability to Aruba wired switches. What this means is that the same security, user experience and simplified IT management can be enjoyed throughout the network. Regardless of how users and IoT devices connect, consistent policies are enforced across wired and wireless networks, keeping traffic secure and separate.

PRODUCT DIFFERENTIATORS | AOS-CX - a modern operating system

The Aruba CX 6400 Switch Series is based on AOS-CX, a modern, database-driven operating system that automates and simplifies many critical and complex network tasks. A built-in time series database enables customers and developers to utilize software scripts for historical troubleshooting, as well as analysis of past trends. This helps predict and avoid future problems due to scale, security, and performance bottlenecks. Our AOS-CX software also includes Aruba Network Analytics Engine (NAE) and support for Aruba NetEdit. Because AOS-CX is built on a modular Linux architecture with a stateful database, our operating system provides the following unique capabilities:

  • Easy access to all network state information allows unique visibility and analytics
  • Powerful modular Layer 3 switches with BGP, EVPN, VXLAN, VRF, and OSPF with robust security and QoS
  • High performance switching with up to 28 Tbps with 11.4 Bpps
  • High availability with industry-leading VSX redundancy and redundant power supplies and fans
  • Full density HPE Smart Rate (1/2.5/5GbE) multigigabit, 60W PoE and SFP+ modules
  • High speed, non-blocking 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE ports1 (50GbE capability is for use with 50G DACs for both interconnect and Aruba VSX
  • Intelligent monitoring, visibility, and remediation with Aruba Network Analytics Engine
  • Manage via single pane of glass with Aruba Central across wired, wireless, and WAN
  • Aruba NetEdit support for automated configuration and verification
  • Aruba Dynamic Segmentation enables secure and simple access for users and IoT devices
