Aruba AI platform aims to streamline management of edge networks

Aruba took the wraps off a platform the company says will use machine learning and artificial intelligence technology to help customers manage and protect edge network resources.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s network subsidiary introduced Edge Services Platform (ESP), which can analyze telemetry data generated from WiFi or network switching gear and use it to automatically optimize connectivity, discover network problems and secure the overall edge environment.

ESP, which the company said has been under development for over four years, not only builds a data lake of a customer’s data center, campus, and SD-WAN information but also combines it with statistics from some 1.5 billion data points generated daily by Aruba devices worldwide.  ESP then applies its AI and machine learning algorithms to troubleshoot issues before they become problems, said Miles Davis, senior director of global solutions for Aruba.

“ESP also accesses data that today too often resides in siloes and brings that out where it can be accessed, analyzed and used in automation to improve provisioning and security,” Davis said.

On the security side, ESP supports Zero Trust security principles such as segmentation and policy-based firewal and access control to ensure the identity of a wired or wireless endpoint. It enforces policies applied to those endpoints with an application-aware firewall and adapts to new threats by sharing information with other security platforms and automatically adjusts policies to networked devices, Davis said. 

ESP can be delivered on-premises, in the cloud or as a managed service from Aruba partners or via network-as-a-service through HPE GreenLake. ESP information can  be gleaned with Aruba’s cloud-based network-monitoring console, Aruba Central, which was upgraded to support ESP.
