    Ask the Experts: HPE Aruba Networking Secure SD-WAN 

    Welcome, Airheads! Today from 10:00 - 2:00 PT we will have Adam (@AP27)  with HPE Aruba Networking answering your questions today. Just post them to this thread and I'll get back to you. (Friendly reminder: Your HPE Aruba Networking support team is available to help with specific troubleshooting questions.)

    You might be wondering what SD-WAN has to do with security. SD-WAN is a key component of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architectures designed to protect users and applications wherever they are located. Consider these SASE facts:

    ·         30% of organizations have adopted SASE; nearly the same amount (29%) plan to deploy SASE

    ·         42% of organizations say Zero Trust- and SASE-enabled IT architectures should be top priorities to minimize risk in a hybrid cloud environment

    ·         Organizations that are highly effective in keeping up with a constantly changing threat landscape are more likely to adopt SASE

    (Get more details in the report.)

    Secure SD-WAN in SASE architectures enables you to go beyond what is defined in SASE architectures to secure IoT devices, streamline branch architectures, and reduce firewall sprawl.

    Let's get to it. What questions do you have about secure SD-WAN and your path to SASE?

    Hi champs,

    Can we have some detailed outperforming factors for Aruba SASE over Palo alto/Cisco/Fortinet?

    Hi all! I have been working on EdgeConnect (formerly SilverPeak) for over a decade and can answer most technical questions about how the EdgeConnect SD-WAN works and how we interconnect EdgeConnect branch locations with SSEs such as Axis, Zscaler, and Netskope. I run a 120 branch EdgeConnect SDWAN for Aruba so I can answer questions both from both a PM and customer's standpoint. So ask me anything! The more technical the better.

    Hey, I was chatting around in the other expert session and I'm interested to know if there is any advantage to be had from this solution for my single, centralized network with remote workers.

    SD-WAN's value arises when you have many remote offices that need reliable and secure access to other offices, IaaS, or the Internet. It sounds like you don't have many actual "offices" but instead lots of SOHO users. While you could deploy an EdgeConnect SD-WAN router to the user's home office you might instead consider Aruba Axis SSE. Once Axis SSE is deployed your users will be able to use a web-based portal to access resources buried deep within the headquarters location. The users can also install the Axis Atmos ZTNA client which allows access to private, internal headquarters-based applications. Or you can combine both SD-WAN and SSE – for power users get dedicated EdgeConnect SD-WAN router for their home office while everyone else uses the SSE ZTNA client.

    Hello, I need help, I was testing with Aruba EdgeConnect, I made configurations and then I made my backup of the configurations, to confirm that everything works, I downloaded that backup again uploaded it to Aruba EdgeConnect, everything was fine until I wanted to log in. via ssh or web it no longer allowed me. How can I factory reset it?

    That's rather strange. I assume the default admin password also failed?

    Does Aruba have any KB/Documentation for hardware upgrade from ECXS to ECS?
    I cant seem to find documentation for this one. From configuration transfer to HA setup.

    1. Wanted to understanding China SD-WAN Solution:

    • How does SD-WAN operate within China, considering the country's specific network infrastructure and regulations?

    2. Impact of Orchestrator Location:

    • What are the implications of having the orchestrator management outside of China, and how does it differ when the orchestrator is located within China?

    3. Formation of Overlay Tunnels Using the Internet:

    • How are overlay tunnels created when using the internet as the transport, both within and outside of China, especially when the orchestrator is deployed outside of China?

    4. Challenges with SD-WAN for Organizations:

    • What challenges do organizations typically encounter when implementing SD-WAN, both in general and in the context of China?

    5. Design Considerations for China SD-WAN:

    • What are the key design considerations to take into account when planning and implementing an SD-WAN solution specifically for China?

    6. Aruba Documentation for China SD-WAN:

    • Is there any specific documentation or resources from Aruba tailored for implementing SD-WAN in China, and where can it be accessed?
