Understanding ArubaOS: Version 6.x
By David A. Westcott

Understanding ArubaOS: Version 8.x

Understanding ArubaOS: Version 8.x goes beyond the documentation to explain and describe the ArubaOS 8 operating system. It focuses on providing the reader with an understanding of the architecture along with how to manage and administer the Aruba Mobility Controllers and access points. The Mobility Master is at the core of the ArubaOS 8 platform. It is a powerful central management platform for the entire Aruba wireless infrastructure.

Written by Aruba’s senior instructor with over 15 years of Aruba training experience, Understanding ArubaOS 8.x will help you understand the different pieces of the ArubaOS 8 wireless system, the functions of these pieces, and how they fit together. This book does not just focus on the commands and configuration screens, but gives functional knowledge about the entire Aruba wireless network.

The book takes a very matter-of-fact, straightforward approach to understanding the Aruba Networks architecture and its components. Stories and analogies are used to make it easier to understand complex topics. The book is not intended to be an A through Z, step-by-step user's guide to configuring ArubaOS 8; however, it does provide hundreds of graphics and CLI commands, along with the output displayed, describing and showing the steps to perform most of the tasks in the book.
