The Aruba 650 and 651 Branch Office Controller is a compact, costeffective all-in-one networking solution. The 650 and 651 branch office controllers include a firewall, wireless LAN controller, eight-port Ethernet switch with PoE+, IP router, site-to-site VPN edge device, file server and print server in an attractive desktop-mount enclosure. The 651 branch office controller includes an integrated single-radio, dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n access point (AP). Aruba’s centralized zerotouch configuration and management model enables these branch office controllers to be deployed, monitored and controlled without any local IT staff. Additional deployment options include remote management or local configuration via a web interface.
Both branch office controllers rely on central controllers in the data center to manage complex and processor-intensive management and security functions. Edge services are virtualized and implemented in cost-effective 650 and 651 branch office controllers, which move user traffic to data center controllers through secure IP tunnels over a public or private transport network. The 650 and 651 branch office controllers provide local wireless services when used in conjunction with any Aruba AP, or they can operate as wired-only devices. They also include print server and network-attached storage capabilities to enable local network printing and mass storage.
