Aruba SD-Branch Network & Security Solutions
Revolutionizing the branch for todays digital era
Aruba’s SD-Branch solution encompasses each element within a branch – WAN, WLAN, wired, and security – to address all of your IT network connectivity needs. IT can now understand the user experience for every location, monitor for traffic that traverses WAN links, and proactively solve end-to-end networking issues.
The Software Defined Branch
Aruba’s answer is a software defined branch (SD-Branch) that combines best-in-class wireless, wired and WAN infrastructure with management capabilities that include assurance and orchestration features to help maximize performance and minimize operational costs. A Unified Infrastructure model gives organizations a way to simplify the deployment, configuration, and management of everything within a branch location and across the WAN using a single pane of glass management.
