USE YOUR NETWORK TO GIVE YOUR BUSINESS A COMPETITIVE EDGE

“To help IT departments in this transition or to further expand we must deliver the right tools to deliver EDGE connectivity to the CLOUD.”


Guido Kragten,
Solution Sales Enablement for Aruba Cloud platforms in EMEA

The EDGE is where people, devices and things are connected. Over the years and years to come, the edge will change due to mobility, IoT and Cloud. This change is happening in every industry from large Enterprise accounts all the way down to your own house.

Take my house as an example, I have multiple devices connected to the edge like phones, tablets, laptops and most all of these devices are mobile. Next, to this, I also connect things in my house like smoke detectors, thermostats, lights, television, radios and much more. These things are not new but the main difference is that they are now connected, wireless or this is what we call the EDGE.

On the other side, I use loads of applications in my house and I don’t install them on a local server but consume them from the cloud. Applications for TV, movies, storage, health, business, finance, etc. You name it and we have an app for that to deliver me value and with the combination of the network an amazing experience.

Now in the business world, the same thing is happening but on a much larger scale where we might have hundreds or thousands of devices/things connected and use multiple applications that are aimed for business but also private use by employees, guest and visitors.

This brings challenges towards that business-like performance, security, visibility, flexibility, budget, manpower, just to name a few, combined with shrinking budgets which increases pressure towards the IT department.
