Aruba NetEdit

Coordinated network switch configuration, monitoring and troubleshooting


Network administrators face numerous challenges that include device proliferation brought on by IoT and BYOD, as well as the need to provide reliable, secure mobile access to any user, anywhere. The high rate of change to support evolving business requirements is another issue. Non-stop adds, moves and changes can overwhelm what are often short-staffed IT teams, which increases the risk of operator error and, subsequently, performance issues or downtime.

In response to these challenges, Aruba NetEdit empowers IT teams to orchestrate the configuration of multiple switches with automation and analytics to ensure deployments are consistent, conformant, and free of errors. The automation workflows allow for changes without the overhead of programming by providing operators with a user-friendly, CLI-like interface. This arms IT teams with the power to smoothly coordinate end-to-end service roll outs, rapidly initiate network-wide changes, and ensure policy conformance after network updates.

With embedded analytics delivered from the Aruba Network Analytics Engine (NAE), this intelligent assistance and continuous validation assure that network-wide configuration changes are consistent and compliant, ultimately improving the overall health and security of the network.

Aruba NetEdit for error-free network configuration

Empowers IT teams to orchestrate configuration changes across multiple switches using intelligent automation and analytics, ensuring service rollouts are consistent, conformant and error-free.

Multi-device Editing

To keep pace with network changes, NetEdit enables operators to easily change configurations on multiple devices at once using complete details of each configuration file. For example, you can centrally define the NTP or the RADIUS server address for all relevant switches, or set an ACL entry on only the access switches.

Dynamic Network Topology

The Network tab within the interface provides a holistic view of an organization’s network topology, including Aruba CX switches and Aruba access points, as well as third-party switches.

One-Click Deployments with Auto-Verification

Using NetEdit, you can stage a deployment (or a rollback) on multiple switches, and validate the correct operation of switches after changes. For instance, you can determine whether a change is working properly before deploying it more widely, or you can quickly back out changes if there is a problem.
