EdgeConnect Microbranch is the latest addition to the Aruba Edge Services Platform (ESP), a cloud-native edge networking solution with built-in artificial intelligence. That offering reached market last June, approximately one year after the introduction of Aruba’s Instant On line of small business access points. According to Lanza, ESP is generally the preferred option for businesses with sophisticated network architectures and data centers or private clouds, as well as organizations with significant compliance requirements like healthcare providers.
“Instant On serves a different segment of smaller to midsize businesses that have simpler, more contained networking use cases,” Lanza says.
Instant On won Aruba a spot on ChannelPro’s list of All-Star Award winners for 2019.
