Aruba Aims for Clarity in IoT Heavy Networks
Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company (HPE), today released a pair of new access points and a device that helps enterprises keep track of all the IoT and connected devices running on their network. The products are part of a broader effort to accelerate IoT adoption by giving businesses greater visibility into all of the devices running on their internal networks. Aruba’s ClearPass Device Insight is a terminal that employs machine learning to automate the discovery and fingerprinting of connected devices. Customers can pair the terminal with Aruba’s ClearPass Policy Manager and dynamic segmentation security capabilities to automate authentication and enforce policies based on device type and the need of users. The company, which was acquired by HPE in 2015, is also releasing two new access points — the Aruba 530 and 550, which integrate Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, and Zigbee on a single access point. ClearPass Device Insight is a subscription-based service that starts at $1,260 per-year for 100 devices, and the access points start at $1,495 and $1,895. “We expect that over time customers are going to want to consolidate some of the IoT infrastructure,” Paul Kaspian, senior product and solutions marketing manager at Aruba, told SDxCentral in a phone interview.  Many enterprises operate separate networks for different use cases and protocols, which creates a complex and expensive environment to manage, he explained. “We’re trying to provide a lot more connectivity at the access point for a broader set of devices,” Kapsian said. Some of Aruba’s customers have upward of 300,000 devices, so “a million devices is not something that’s far out at this point,” he added. More than 14 million new connected devices are being added to networks every day, according to Aruba. The access points and device management terminal “support higher device densities,” which positions them for customers with high bandwidth and connectivity requirements, such as large public venues, Kaspian explained.
