Aruba Central

A powerful cloud networking solution with AI-powered insights, workflow automation, and robust security that enables IT to manage and optimize campus, branch, remote, and data center networks from a single dashboard.

Manage any-sized network from the cloud

Built on a cloud-native, microservices architecture, Aruba Central is an AI-powered solution that improves IT agility by unifying management of all network infrastructure.

Streamline operations

Simplify how you provision, configure, and maintain networks by orchestrating all operations from a cloud-native dashboard. Aruba Central is your single point of visibility and control that spans the entire network – from branch to data center, wired and wireless LAN to WAN.

Troubleshoot faster with AI

Surface and resolve issues before users ever notice them. Always-on monitoring, AI-powered insights, and context-based troubleshooting help solve problems up to 90% faster, so the network keeps business running at peak levels.

Stronger security, minus the complexity

Protect users and networks by replacing static VLANs and ACLs with policy-based automation and advanced threat intelligence. Ensure users have reliable, secure access no matter how or where they connect.

Deploy and consume your way
