Agile, scalable network switches for the mobile-first campus and branch – from edge to core.
Network switch technology that’s futureproof
Planning networking infrastructure around your business’s potential future needs can be challenging, even for someone with experience in the field. Businesses evolve in sometimes unexpected ways and this can mean your network is bogged down sooner than you thought.
If you invested in what should have been sufficient networking infrastructure, only to find your network slowed by increases in traffic and the number of devices trying to access it, you’re not alone.
This is why HPE is so interested in futureproof network switch technology. We want to build hardware that not only solves today’s problems, but that also addresses the problems of tomorrow. The goal is for our network switches to be able to handle the massive amounts of network traffic businesses have right now, as well as the increase in network data that will surely come in the future.
HPE makes it possible to have a network that is secure, fast, and simple, but that also doesn’t go down when your business’s traffic increases. Our network switch technology helps your network navigate additional usage and devices as efficiently as possible.
Digital transformation starts with modern networking
Digital transformation is all about changing a company’s culture, processes and attitude towards adopting new technology so it becomes agile and forward-thinking. Suddenly, IoT technology will be able to automatically restock warehouses without going through an intermediary. Mobile-first technology will give customers the best experience with your business possible. Employees will use digital tools to collaborate and get their jobs done faster. All of these things and more are emerging and will continue to evolve. However, without an efficient, reliable and secure network, digital transformation cannot take place. The digital workplace is the workplace of the future. With more and more enterprises beginning the process of digital transformation, it’s only a matter of time before businesses that choose not to transform are abandoned by the market. In order to get started, network switch technology is the foundation.
Solutions for today’s traffic acceleration
New technology is developed all the time. A single large tech company can produce a faster, better, more reliable device every year, flooding the market with hardware that needs a network. As businesses start the process of digital transformation and turn to IoT technology, this trend shows no signs of stopping. For businesses that invested in older technology, this means bogged down networks and slow connections. Aruba network switch technology addresses this issue by providing high-speed connectivity to all devices. It facilitates every connection so that users have the best experience possible.
An answer to new security challenges
It was much easier to anticipate security challenges when there were only a few types of devices on the network. However, with new types of devices introduced every year, there are new, previously unanticipated security vulnerabilities. Aruba network switch technology was developed to combat this issue and securely connect multiple device types while still providing the fastest possible data delivery to each. It gives you network visibility so you know exactly what devices are connected and can have the peace of mind that comes with security. It also automates network segmentation, or the process by which a network is split into subnetworks. This means that not only are more devices able to connect, but that those connections become more secure.
A happier IT department
The demands of today’s IT are not the demands of yesterday’s IT. Every year, more tasks are required of enterprise IT, while the IT department receives the same amount of resources. This means IT is increasingly spread thin, but is still expected to deliver results. Aruba network switch technology isn’t just fast and secure, it’s also incredibly scalable. This means it handles accelerating network traffic efficiently and can be easily upgraded in the event of a traffic increase. This gives the IT department the time it needs to react to an increase in traffic without the network going down.
One of the major perks of using Aruba for your network switch needs is that it fits in with the other Aruba infrastructure your business already owns. So, instead of having to replace all of your infrastructure just so your network runs more efficiently, Aruba network switches integrate seamlessly with the Aruba hardware you already have.
