Gina Narcisi

Fueled by the pandemic and the need for digitalization, businesses are adopting new technologies more rapidly than ever before to address the work-from-home trend, smaller office settings and demand for cloud applications. Here are 10 of the coolest new networking offerings that gained traction in 2021.

Aruba EdgeConnect Microbranch 

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, is targeting small offices and home users with its EdgeConnect Microbranch networking offering for hybrid work environments. Introduced in December, EdgeConnect Microbranch gives remote users all the traditional services that in-office workers receive through a single Wi-Fi access point, with no gateway, agent or additional hardware required. EdgeConnect Microbranch is part of the Aruba Edge Services Platform (ESP), which also now includes SD-WAN services from the company’s Silver Peak purchase so that home workers also have access to strong connectivity, security and zero-touch on-boarding experiences, no matter where they are located, according to the San Jose, Calif.-based networking specialist.

The Aruba EdgeConnect Microbranch offering is now available in early access and will be generally available in March 2022 for any AP running ArubaOS 10 with a Foundation AP License, the company said.
