Aruba APAC Atmosphere 2018: Intelligent Edge Capabilities


Aruba APAC Atmosphere 2018 and our time in Bangkok has come to an end. 

With over 2000 global wireless and wired network specialists gathered together to discuss intelligent edge capabilities, it’s not surprising that we can highlight some very interesting new products and features coming to market.


The conference focused not only on a mobile first network but also on further developing the experience associated with a mobile first network. We would like to draw attention to:

– Aruba Insight

– Aruba Cape

– The Aruba 360 security portfolio and,

– Software Defined Branch




These products will provide exceptional value add for our clients and here is why!

Aruba 360 Security Fabric – Second to None


With perimeter-based security now deemed inefficient in protecting organisations, the Aruba 360 secure fabric provides a complete integrated package, not only giving engineers peace of mind but also significantly reducing their workload.


By combining Introspect, User Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA), ClearPass- Network Access Control (NAC), AI analytics, 3rd party infrastructure and integrated security exchange (with Palo Alto, McFee, Due or ArcSight) with the secure core; Mobile first infrastructure organisations award themselves with an autonomous security portfolio that achieves greater insights and provides a security offering second to none. In our opinion, large organisations cannot afford to overlook this security offering.


Aruba 360 provides your business with;

  •    – A new way to deal with security threats
  •    – Protection of the digital workplace amidst a vanishing security perimeter
  •    – Options to manage and protect your data
  •    – Ironclad network access control
  •    – Detection of attacks inside the perimeter with UEBA
  •    – Clarify with the ability to use all your defences in an open, multi-vendor ecosystem


Next Generation Software Defined Branch


Today’s branch networks are no

longer defined by atypical WAN hub-and-spoke model. Public and private cloud options now provide users with direct access to corporate applications and services from any device.


This exposes new management, visibility, and security risks AND new connectivity requirements for branch, remote, and mobile workers.


With Aruba SD-WAN you can;

  •    – Improve visibility and control
  •    – Improve TCO for WAN and LAN through reducing your MPLS network needs
  •    – Integrate SD-WAN with existing management tools
  •    – Optimise traffic with role-based awareness
