With mobility as king and the explosive growth of IoT, IT is being asked to do more with little to no expansion of staffing. Large universities can experience 12+ million authentications to the network per day. Using high-end tools (incorporating AI) that automate network optimization, or visibility for early detection of issues, can help free IT staff from more basic network tuning chores and enable them to focus on more significant issues. Additionally, by unifying wired and wireless tools, IT can use solutions to simplify management of multi-vendor networks.
Explore the Special Report and additional resources below to discover how consistent IT processes means seamless integration for deployment, provisioning, and management—creating even greater IT efficiencies and further improving both IT and user experiences.
Fully autonomous networks may still be on the horizon, but automation and AI can already shoulder much of the load for IT, while improving network performance. As many universities are learning, networks that use AI to configure, diagnose, optimize, and fix themselves free up skilled IT professionals to focus more on more complex problems that merit their expertise…
As students and staff engage with their mobile devices to study, teach and socialize, they most likely aren’t thinking about their connection nor the foundational network infrastructure that is behind that connection. See how ArubaOS 8 enables network reliability and operational simplicity for higher education.
When it comes to wireless and wired networks, deep integration delivers a better user experience, strengthens security and simplifies operations. Advanced integration makes it easier to deal with the deluge of mobile and connected devices and the growing use of real-time collaboration tools.
With the growth of mobility and IoT devices connecting to enterprise networks, IT needs more granular tools and deeper insights to see how the network is performing. With Aruba AirWave, IT can identify problems before there are disruptions to connectivity, app quality, and RF coverage. It’s the most powerful network management platform for multi-vendor wired and wireless infrastructures.
