Aruba’s Mobile First Architecture
Delivering an enterprise-class user experience requires a comprehensive approach that extends from the edge to the campus core. We will deep dive into Aruba’s architecture to help you understand how our wireless, wired, and WAN solutions deliver industry leading visibility, performance, and management capabilities.
Aruba’s 360 Secure Fabric
Learn how the Aruba 360 Secure Fabric enables IT to leverage comprehensive security solutions to provide critical access, IoT and behavior-based visibility and data protection. This session provides in-depth technical descriptions for how Aruba ClearPass and Aruba IntroSpect fit in to your environment, and how to leverage central policy enforcement and analytics across your campus and branches. Solution demos highlight key use cases and integration points within our portfolio.
Aruba’s Software Defined Branch Services
Advances in cloud-based services are shifting investments towards SD-WAN, service assurance, and location analytics. These priorities propel investment in software-defined solutions designed to optimize user experience while simplifying management – especially across large, distributed environments. In this session, we will explore key IT priorities in enabling smarter, digital workplaces and define how Aruba can provide capabilities such as transport-independent WAN, end-to-end security policies and location-based services to improve the value of the network infrastructure in any location.
