Aruba Networks sent shockwaves through the networking industry with the launch of its first ever core switch: the Aruba 8400 Core Switch Series.
Partners said the new switch provides a legitimate challenger to Cisco at the network core, bringing automation and software intelligence to organizations looking for an alternative to Cisco.
