The Aruba 650/651 Branch Office Controller is designed for applications in which a compact, cost-effective “all-in-one” networking solution is required. The 650 and 651 include a firewall, wireless LAN controller, 8-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 also includes an integrated dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n wireless access point. Aruba’s centralized configuration and management model enables the controllers to be deployed, monitored, and controlled without any local IT staff. Deployment options include zero-touch remote management or local configuration via a Web interface.

The 650 and 651 are integral components of Aruba’s “virtual enterprise network” architecture, which uses central controllers in the data center to manage complex and processing-intensive management and security functions. Edge services are virtualized and can be implemented in cost-effective edge devices like the 650 series, which move user traffic to the data center controllers using secure IP tunnels operating over any available public or private transport network. The 650 and 651 can provide local wireless services when used in conjunction with any Aruba wireless access point, or it can operate as a wired-only device. The controllers also include print server and network-attached storage capabilities to enable local network printing and mass storage.
