SD-Branch Fundamentals Guide

By kevin.l.marshall Unpublished


Aruba Fundamentals Guides are best practice recommendation documents specifically designed to
demonstrate the efficacy of Aruba products and to enable customers who deploy Aruba solutions
to achieve optimal results. This document is not only intended to serve a deployment guide but also
to provide descriptions of Aruba technology, recommendations for product selections, network design decisions, configuration procedures, and best practices. The cumulative Aruba documentation suite for ArubaOS 8 comprises a reference model for understanding Aruba technology and designs for common customer deployment scenarios. Our customers rely on these proven designs to rapidly deploy Aruba solutions in their production environments with the assurance that they will perform and scale as expected.

Intended Audience
This guide is intended for administrators who are responsible for deploying and configuring Aruba
Software-Defined Branch (SD-Branch) solutions on customer premises. This is a base design guide for ArubaOS and it is assumed that readers have at least a working understanding of fundamental wireless concepts such as Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) as well as Aruba technology.

Are there any updates to the SD-Branch documentation set? I can see lots of features on my SD-Branch that are not discussed in the doco.
