Simplify WAN routing and reduce costs with Aruba Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN). Managed by Aruba Central, Aruba SD-WAN is a better way to control WAN traffic and gain visibility for all existing branch deployments.
What is SD-WAN?
Software-defined WAN is a new way to orchestrate routing over any mix of WAN connections - like broadband and MPLS. It improves your Total Cost of Ownership and makes the WAN much easier to deploy and manage.

Faster and simpler deployment.
Using Aruba’s cloud-based UI, you can pre-stage a WAN configuration for each branch and simplify end-to-end orchestration. On-site, your installer can just plug in and scan the barcode on your Aruba gateway – then you can monitor its boot process from anywhere.
