The AI Insights Dashboard

In an environment of rapidly changing business and user expectations driven by an explosion of connectivity requirements from the edge to the cloud, a new approach to network management is required. Aruba AIOps (Artificial Intelligence for IT operations) is the next generation of AI-powered solutions that integrates proven Artificial Intelligence solutions with recommended and automated action to provide both fast response to identified problems, along with proactive prediction and prevention.

With data collected from over 750,000 access points, switches, and gateways, Aruba Central and built-in AI Insights proactively identifies and solves issues, and provides pinpoint configuration recommendations. As the data is stored in the cloud, it is easy to view the network performance across all locations from a single pane of glass. Utilizing the cloud also provides the ability to anonymously compare a network with a peer network or the baselines for a broader perspective and optimization. All of this comes from Aruba's advantage in accessing an enormous volume and variety of data that is factored into insights. Aruba does not collect or process personal data.

In this release the insights are classified under three categories:

The AI Insights dashboard displays a report of network events that could possibly affect the quality of the overall network performance. These are anomalies observed at the access point, connectivity, and client level for the selected time range. Each insight provides specific details on the occurrences of these events for easy debugging.

To launch the AI Insights dashboard, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Network Operations app, set the filter to Global.The dashboard context for the selected filter is displayed.
  2. Under Manage, click Overview > AI Insights. The Insights table is displayed. AI Insights listed in the dashboard are sorted from high priority to low priority.
