VSTECS expands portfolio with Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN Edge Platform to empower organizations to shift to Business-First Networking Model

Embracing a cloud-first strategy demands enterprises to deploy SD-WAN solutions designed to support fully automated business-driven networks. Traditionally, router-centric wide area network (WAN) was designed when all applications were hosted in enterprise data centers. As more organizations move to the cloud, applications are no longer centralized. Hence, traditional networking infrastructures limit application performance and traditional routers are inadequate in routing all applications from branch offices back to the data center, instead of directly to SaaS and IaaS providers.

“There is no doubt that the pandemic has placed a huge strain on corporate networks. The combination of lockdowns, social-distancing and self-quarantine requirements has increased the need for organizations to provide remote workers with tools that allow collaboration and access volumes of data through a reliable VPN connection. With the unprecedented demand for connectivity, enterprises need to evolve to address the increasing reliance on digital technologies and support teleworking. Aruba EdgeConnect will be a gamechanger to improve organizations’ performance,” says Jimmy Go, President and CEO, VSTECS Phils. Inc.

Shifting gears to a business-first networking model

To realize the full potential of the cloud and to allow networks to keep pace with the demands of a hyperconnected world, it is imperative for organizations to shift to a business-first networking model.  This approach allows the network to support business applications and improves business resiliency. In this model, IT teams centrally orchestrate quality of service (QoS) and security policies for groups of applications based on business intent.  

The configuration is programmed automatically to 100s or 1000s of locations across the network. The network connects users in a seamless and secure manner to applications, delivering optimal performance round-the-clock. Through real-time monitoring of applications and WAN services, the network learns and adapts to any changes in network conditions that might impact application performance, such as packet loss and latency.  

Empowering with Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN

Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN platform enables customers to build a unified WAN edge to support mission-critical business needs, delivering a seamless, secure, and unified experience while continuously adapting to ever-changing business needs and networking conditions.
