Cloud-native campus networking delivered your way

Aruba ESP reduces risk, improves agility, and increases efficiency.

Digital acceleration is increasing the strain on today’s campus networks

With ever-rising cloud investment amidst looming threats of a recession, enterprise IT departments are challenged to do more with less.

Cloud, IoT, and OT proliferation

As businesses increasingly invest in digital and connected technologies, aging IT infrastructure can negatively impact revenue streams.

Operational complexity

With increasing use of cloud apps, mobile devices, and other smart sensors, every move, add, or change creates an exponential effect on IT workloads.

Reduced IT resources

From staffing shortages to stagnant budgets, network modernization efforts can be delayed by months or years if people resources are taxed.

It’s time to modernize your campus network

Higher scale and performance

Deliver modern campus connectivity to hundreds—even tens of thousands—of users, with advanced automation and programmability tools, tri-band Wi-Fi operation, multi-gigabit Ethernet, and secure access to cloud and on-premise data stores. What’s more, current customers can repurpose much of their existing infrastructure for investment protection.

Increased visibility and control

Begin the journey to consolidate your network management functions using a cloud-native platform that boasts unified wired, Wi-Fi, and SD-WAN management, automated configuration of network and policy definition, and deployment wherever you need it—in the cloud or on-premise.

Enhanced IT efficiency

Identify network, security, and application performance issues before they affect your users—and your business. Using a common data lake, Aruba Central gathers and analyzes metadata to provide optimization tips as your network experiences change, eliminating a sizable portion of manual diagnostics.

Flexible consumption options

Enable your business to quickly and efficiently deploy critical network services to support on-demand use cases such as remote user access, new site deployments, and incremental upgrades—without adding lead times to existing IT initiatives, creating guesswork around finances, or losing control over the decision-making process.

What are your network consumption priorities?

While network as a service (NaaS) is typically defined as a network managed by a 3rd party for a monthly payment, most organization have much broader NaaS needs based on the business outcomes they need to achieve.
