Aruba S3500 Mobility
access Switch
The S3500 Mobility Access Switch from Aruba Networks®
extends role-based user access, security and operational
simplicity to wired networks.
A vital part of Aruba Mobility-Defined Networks™, the S3500
delivers secure, virtualized access services to users, regardless
of their location, access method, device or applications.
The S3500 is available in five models, with 24 or 48
The integration and automation of policy management
capabilities significantly reduces IT overhead by eliminating
the need to manually configure policies on every Mobility
Access Switch.
10/100/1000BASE-T ports with optional power-over Ethernet
Wired AP with Mobility Controllers
(PoE) and 24 1000BASE-XSFP ports.
Mobility Access Switches support a unique per-port Tunneled
Each model supports an optional uplink module that includes
four Gigabit Ethernet/10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports.
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) is available with up to 30 watts per
port based on the IEEE 802.3af PoE and 802.3at PoE+ standards.
Mobility Access Switches can be interconnected to form an
ArubaStack™. This provides connectivity for up to 384 Gigabit
Ethernet devices such as APs, virtual desktops, IP phones,
videophones, classroom peripherals, medical devices,
point-of-sale devices and security cameras.
Redundant power supplies and modular, hot-swappable
components make the S3500 ideal for high-density, highavailability wiring closets.
FLEXIBLE AND SECURE ACCESS DEPLOYMENTS
Node capability that enables policy enforcement by an
ICSA-certified stateful firewall resident in Aruba Mobility
Controllers. A Tunneled Node port essentially operates as a
wired AP, identical to Aruba 802.11ac APs.
Ports in shared locations such as conference rooms and
common areas can be configured so that traffic is enforced
by the Mobility Controller firewall, while other ports perform
local forwarding.
Configured as a wired AP, Mobility Access Switches free
network administrators from the need to configure
VLANs, ACLs and QoS policies at each switch in the access
layer. Policies for users, devices and applications are defined
and enforced by Mobility Controllers across wired and
wireless networks.
What makes Aruba Mobility Access Switches unique is their

with role-based user access.
ability to apply role-based policies to wired users and devices.
Option 2: Downloadable
user roles from ClearPass
Policy Manager.
ClearPass
User roles can represent specific users or groups of users with
defined names such as employees or guests. They can be
defined with VLAN-IDs, QoS policies, VoIP policies or even ACLs.

When deployed with Aruba ClearPass, which provides user
and device authentication, user roles may be automatically
downloaded and applied to the Mobility Access Switch.
If a user’s authorization parameters change – for example, if
user access extends outside time-of-day parameters or
disabling a firewall violates device health check policies –
ClearPass can signal Mobility Access Switches to change the
user role associated with the client.

ARUBASTACK EXTENDS BEYOND THE WIRING CLOSET
With ArubaStack, Mobility Access Switches provide the
opportunity to optimize network access design. Up to eight
S3500 or S2500 Mobility Access Switches can be
interconnected and managed as a single logical device with
one IP address and one configuration file.
Each S3500 supports an optional four-port Gigabit Ethernet/
10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink module to enable stacking.

correctly the first time and simplifies configuration
compliance with additional port configuration changes.
Extending the ArubaStack to other Mobility Access Switches
across closets or buildings can be achieved using both fiber
and copper interfaces (see Figure 2).
Interconnecting multiple wiring closets into a single
ArubaStack reduces uplinks and expensive routed ports in
the LAN core, simplifies LAN topologies, and reduces capital
and operating costs compared to legacy wiring closet designs.
Multiple Mobility Access Switches or ArubaStacks can be
interconnected to the S3500-24F (see Figure 3). The S350024F provides a compact, economical and power-efficient
solution for aggregating Gigabit Ethernet uplinks from
building wiring closets. It includes 24 1000BASE-X SFP ports
and accommodates four additional Gigabit Ethernet/10
Gigabit Ethernet uplinks.
As a member of an ArubaStack, the
S3500-24F enables the resilient connection of Mobility
Access Switches across multiple aggregation devices.
When used with Aruba Instant™ APs, Mobility Access Switches
automatically learn VLANs configured in the Instant cluster.
Mobility Access Switches additionally modify the port PoE
priority as a business-critical resource, reserving power for
APs in the event of loss of budgeted PoE power. They can
also shut down a port classified as a rogue AP by an Aruba
Instant AP.
The automation with Aruba Instant, and integration with
ClearPass and Mobility Controllers, eliminates traditional IT
overhead that comes from manually configuring parameters
and policies on every legacy switch in the access network.

Activate™ zero-touch provisioning service, which enables
customers to efficiently deploy and maintain Aruba devices
across a distributed enterprise.
