Taking the Headache Out of Telecommuting

Centrally managed at your corporate gateway, the TeleWorker Express (TWE) solution extends corporate resources to remote locations via site-to-site VPN tunnels to your data center.

How It Works

A Remote Access Point (AP) initiates an IPsec connection to the controller over any public network.  The Remote AP is authenticated on the controller either by using a pre-provisioned user name and password (on the Remote AP) or by using certificates installed on the Remote AP.  Once authenticated, the controller assigns an inner IP address to the Remote AP and an IPsec tunnel is established.

No remote configuration is required, as all configurations are centralized and uploaded to the Remote AP in real time.  After Remote AP authentication is completed by the controller and the IPsec tunnel has been established, all communication between the controller and the Remote AP occurs through this secure channel.  This encrypted tunnel is now used to bootstrap the Remote AP, downloading and upgrading its image from the controller, including all security settings, firewall roles and policies, wired port policies, and wireless LAN (WLAN) policies.  Users and devices can now connect to the wired ports and wireless Service Set Identifiers (SSIDs) configured on the Remote AP during the bootstrap process.

Additionally, The TWE solution offers a variety of enterprise-class features, including role-based network access, policy-based forwarding, and automated signal power and channel control management, providing remote workers the same high-quality Wi-Fi experience they get at corporate HQ.


Aruba Networks Remote AP (RAP-3WN)

Room for Everyone

When a greater coverage area is required, for example in a branch office environment, additional RAP-3s can be placed in a mesh configuration and managed as one. If one AP fails, another AP automatically takes over with no disruption in service.
