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.
