Service provider challenges
Significant shifts in application and traffic patterns, including the increased use of cloud services, are driving the need for enterprises to reevaluate networking requirements for branch offices.
As enterprises seek more flexible and cost-effective alternatives for incorporating broadband WAN services, service providers face significant challenges.
- Evolve the network connectivity of increasing number of applications to the cloud
- Create tiered, differentiated managed SD-WAN services
- Speed time-to-market for new managed services
Key benefits of the Aruba EdgeConnect SD‑WAN solution
Performance and availability

Deploy flexible topologies that integrate with any WAN architecture and interface via REST APIs to third-party orchestration, third-party cloud security services, public cloud providers, and OSS/BSS systems.
Expedite service creation to third party network security vendors with flexible service chaining.
Accelerate tiered service revenues with embedded support for SD-WAN, branch routing, stateful firewall, WAN optimization-as-a-service, analytics, and co-managed services in a single platform.
Service provider use cases
Today’s service providers are building managed hybrid network solutions for on-net, off-net, and cloud-hosted applications that will include SD-WAN. These new managed SD-WAN services must have the flexibility to support many different deployment options and handle applications on any type of WAN network.
The solution eliminates the potential for wasted bandwidth and performance bottlenecks for trusted SaaS and web traffic. Trusted SaaS traffic gets broken out at the branch and sent directly to the SaaS provider. Questionable traffic is automatically sent to more robust security appliances in accordance with corporate security policies.
EdgeConnect SD-WAN provides orchestrated, automated, secure branch connectivity directly to all of the top public cloud providers’ global backbone networks. This simplifies the SD-WAN overlay by connecting branch locations directly to regional points of presence (POPs).
