HPE wins contract to provide The Home Depot with Aruba edge services

Adoption of HPE GreenLake for Aruba networking and Aruba ESP will power advanced customer and associate experiences, retailer says

The Home Depot has selected HPE’s Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform), delivered via HPE GreenLake for Aruba networking, to power advanced customer and associate experiences across its US stores.

The new HPE GreenLake for Aruba network as a service (NaaS) will provide a solid network foundation, complete with speed, scale, flexibility, and agility, the home improvement retailer said in an announcement.

The aim is to deliver a seamless experience to the firm’s customers and pool of 500,000 associates, allowing them to peruse, research, and make purchases with ease whether in-store, online or on the mobile app.

“Our goal is to enable technology to remove the friction from our customers’ and associates’ experiences each and every day,” said Daniel Grider, vice president of technology at The Home Depot, in an announcement.

As part of its drive to make it easier for customers to design, visualise, and buy materials for their projects, the retailer is rolling out Zebra Technologies’ TC52ax handheld devices, which will allow users to check prices and inventory in hand or from more than 40 feet away.

Home Depot said its refreshed network will streamline its IT management and operations, with solutions such as Aruba Central cloud with AIOps capabilities to enable the firm to proactively monitor network health and tackle issues.

The company’s wireless offering also includes Aruba location services via WLAN Aps, which offer zero-touch determination of AP location, continuously validate and update location, as well as provide a set of universal coordinates that can be transposed on any building floor map or web mapping platform.

“Our customers trust us to have the right tools and materials to complete their home improvement projects; having an in-store network that further supports interconnected capabilities like in-store navigation or image search allows them to get back to their projects more quickly,” Grider added.
