Whether people return to the office or continue to work from home, your network will be the foundation to empower users to move seamlessly, securely and safely between home and office.
Enabling a safer return to work
The way we think about the workplace has fundamentally changed. Technology will be a key factor in getting users back to the office post Covid-19 sheltering. As we consider a return to the physical office or campus, insight into who users are coming into contact with and where they are congregating is critical.
While human behaviours (wearing masks, social distancing etc.) will be the most important short-term elements in minimising a new surge in COVID-19 infections, technology will be the great enabler of what’s possible for the new normal to keep the workplace safe and employees connected. Proximity solutions will be essential to ensure that new office layouts will protect that health and safety of employees, guest, and customers.
Aruba’s Wi-Fi and location services give you built-in network intelligence to put safety first.
- Density mapping – enables you to modify floorplans when traffic patterns become risky.
- Contact tracing – minimise the impact if Coronavirus appears in the workplace.
The new normal means a hybrid workplace
With the opportunity to blend the home and in-office experience where workspace is modular, flexible and seamlessly integrated organisations will be taking a fresh look at how buildings are organised and managed. The office will be more monitored, flexible and certainly less dense in terms of occupancy and the focus will be on encouraging workers to return to the office based on a secure, safe and enriched experience.
Aruba network as the foundation
The return to work process has a common set of challenges associated with connectivity, management, and security. Aruba Edge Services Platform—a cloud-native and AI-driven platform—is specifically designed to address these challenges and serves as the foundation for enabling the hybrid workplace.
With Aruba Central at the heart of the solution, Aruba ESP provides a cloud experience that can be consumed either as a service in the cloud or on-premises. Speak to an expert today to discuss your options including Network as a Service through HPE GreenLake and our DTP network managed services.
