HPE Enhances AIOps with GenAI in Aruba Networking Central


Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced it expanded its AIOps network management capabilities with the integration of multiple generative AI (GenAI) large language models (LLMs) within HPE Aruba Networking Central.

The cloud-native network management solution, hosted on the HPE GreenLake Cloud Platform, now offers enhanced AI-driven functionalities aimed at optimizing user experience and operational efficiency. Verizon Business is also expanding its managed services portfolio to include HPE Aruba Networking Central.

Unlike conventional GenAI networking, which relies on external LLMs via API calls, HPE Aruba Networking Central features a self-contained set of LLM models with innovative pre-processing and guardrails. These enhancements prioritize search response times, accuracy, and data privacy.

“Today, customers are searching for practical AI applications that can make meaningful improvements to their business,” said Will Townsend, VP and Principal Analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy. “When it comes to effective network management, data and models matter. AI is not new to networking and security operations, but generative AI is given its natural language interface. The challenge lies in tightly aligning queries with AI algorithms to deliver relevant and meaningful business outcomes. A set of purpose-built LLMs delivered in a self-contained sandbox delivers the best of both privacy and performance. With this HPE Aruba Networking Central announcement, HPE is launching compelling generative AI functionality that doesn't sacrifice performance for the sake of hardened security.”

HPE Aruba Networking Central harnesses telemetry data from millions of network-managed devices and customer endpoints to power its machine learning (ML) models for predictive analytics and recommendations.

The LLMs are securely "sandboxed" within HPE Aruba Networking Central, hosted on the HPE GreenLake Cloud Platform, ensuring customer data security while delivering sub-second response times to network operations queries.

“Modern networking customers demand security-first, AI-powered insights into their critical infrastructure, and that’s what we’re delivering,” said David Hughes, chief product officer, HPE Aruba Networking. “HPE continues its strong history of AI innovation with this bold move and HPE Aruba Networking Central’s new approach of deploying multiple LLM models to embrace the capabilities of GenAI.”
