The hybrid workplace in 4 steps
Extend the network to the home
Here’s how it works. IT ships an AP to the employee’s home; the employee plugs it in, downloads a configuration from the cloud, and they’re all set. Centrally managed access credentials map to corporate policies to keep the network secure. And it’s all centralized managed from the cloud—IT gets full visibility and AIOps assisted troubleshooting from anywhere.
Reinforce in-office social distancing
As employees return to the office, it’s important for facilities to be able to modify floorplans based on foot traffic or to change cleaning schedules based on density. With Aruba WLAN’s built-In network intelligence and location-aware capabilities, it’s easy to use density mapping to keep the workplace safe.
Minimize risk with contact tracing
Aruba’s network-based approach uses both proximity and location telemetry to perform contact and location tracing, and the advanced AI capabilities ensure pinpoint accuracy so you’re able to see which people intersected and the exact location of the interaction.
Flexible financing and consumption
It’s now more important than ever to keep financial and consumption flexibility top of mind. Aruba as-a-service options allow you to respond to rapidly changing business requirements, manage tight budgets, and easily deploy the latest networking technologies.
The Importance of Contact Tracing
Implementing a Contact Tracing strategy that leverages existing infrastructure ensures a quick deployment, but also addresses challenges related to ongoing manageability and hedges risks related to user behavior.
Ensuring Security For Remote Workers and Edge Devices
Network security can be challenging in the age of mobility, IoT, and work from home environments. Aruba Zero Trust Security ensures that the same controls applied to campus or branch networks, also extend to the home or remote worker.
