Next Generation HPE Aruba Networking Central

Maximize IT efficiency and streamline network operations with an intuitive, AI-powered experience for Day 0 to Day N management.

Network operations challenges

Ensuring network availability, performance, and security to deliver superior experiences poses challenges:
  • Skill shortages for cloud, AI, and automation places greater pressure on a small group of domain experts
  • Growing volume and variety of data sources leads to data inconsistencies and makes manual analysis impractical
  • Siloed management of wired, wireless, and WAN leads to network complexity and greater risk of human errors
  • Limited endpoint visibility with rapid IoT adoption leads to increased cybersecurity risk

Network operator experience is pivotal

Empower personnel across skill levels to maximize productivity, simplify operations, and reduce support costs.

Unlock the value of data

Scalable and efficient processing makes data accessible, organized, near real-time, and insightful. This enables intuitive visualizations and powerful troubleshooting mechanisms that transform operator interaction with the network.

Reduce Mean Time to Resolution

Industry-first time travel generates a holistic snapshot of the network at a particular point in time to accelerate troubleshooting. Near real-time, AI-powered insights that span clients, wired, wireless, WAN, security, and applications offer precise root cause, recommendations, and impact.

Streamline Day 0 to Day N operations

Configuration workflows are designed to reflect business intent and are unified across access points, switches, and gateways for operational simplicity. 100% API support enables seamless integration with other HPE Aruba Networking or 3rd-party solutions.  

Amplify unified cloud-managed networking

As the management and orchestration console for Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform), Central unifies the management of wired and wireless LANs, WANs, and VPNs across campus, branch, remote, and data center locations. It is integrated with HPE GreenLake, enabling IT executives to view and manage their compute, storage, and networking infrastructure from a single platform.
