RESEARCH PAPER: Aruba Edge Services Platform

By Will Townsend, Patrick Moorhead - June 9, 2020

The need to support robust networking and new application services places incredible demands on today’s IT staffing. An inherently siloed legacy infrastructure with inconsistent hardware and software platforms spanning local and wide area networks requires excessive manual network operations. This reduces the network operator’s ability to manage device provisioning and ongoing operations. As a result, teams are unnecessarily taxed and unable to provide proactive support along with value-added line of business productivity enhancements.
