Aruba CX 10000 Switch Series

The next evolution of switching architecture. The Aruba CX 10000 provides 800G of distributed stateful firewall for east-west traffic, zero-trust segmentation, and pervasive telemetry.


Aruba and Pensando announce game-changing switching architecture

What defines game-changing? How about 100x the scale, 10x the performance, at one-third the TCO.

Deploy software-defined stateful services where data is processed

Optimizes network bandwidth and performance

The Aruba CX 10000 offers performance, scale, and automation for distributing advanced networking and security services where it’s impractical and costly to force traffic back and forth across the network to a centralized policy enforcement point. Instead, it simply applies services at the services network access layer edge, where the applications are running.

Improves security posture and limits appliance sprawl

Centralized security appliances are inefficient and expensive at inspecting and protecting east-west application traffic within the data center. Hair-pinning traffic to an appliance at the data center edge comes with heavy performance and cost penalties. The Aruba CX 10000 provides an entirely new switching solution to overcome these legacy limitations.

Extends Zero Trust and micro segmentation

The Aruba CX 10000 allows operators to extend industry standard leaf-spine networking with 800G of distributed micro-segmentation, east-west firewalling, NAT, encryption and telemetry services—delivered inline, across every port, closer to critical enterprise applications.

Simplifies operations

Aruba Fabric Composer provides unified network and security management for the Aruba CX 10000 platform. This provides automated switch and network configurations, while also unifying security policy and distributed firewalls across the entire switching fabric. This unified network and security policy management significantly simplifies operations and troubleshooting.
