IP Network probe



Aruba Networks, a leading provider of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, announced a new cloud-managed Wi-Fi solution that simplifies the management of WLAN access points for enterprises. Aruba’s enterprise-grade cloud Wi-Fi solution offers a distributed architecture that links into an enterprise’s central management and policy infrastructure.


The Aruba cloud Wi-Fi solution combines the new Aruba Central cloud-based management service with Aruba Instant access points (APs) – including the new Instant 155 wireless and wired AP, the new Instant 220 series 802.11ac wireless AP, and a new version of Aruba Instant OS, to meet the requirements of diverse, distributed organizations and mid-sized networks. Offering 10x faster Wi-Fi speeds than competitive solutions and all the features of a traditional enterprise-class WLAN, Aruba’s cloud Wi-Fi solution allows branches to benefit from the ease of cloud management without the usual compromises. In addition, Aruba is expanding its switching portfolio with the new Aruba S1500 Mobility Access Switch, optimized for cloud Wi-Fi and designed for both large, distributed enterprises and smaller locations.


“With the increasing affinity of enterprise IT towards cloud-based applications and services, it’s no surprise that cloud-managed Wi-Fi is becoming an increasingly popular solution for a wide range of organizations, especially the distributed enterprise,” said Rohit Mehra, Vice President, Network Infrastructure, International Data Corp. (IDC).  “Cloud Wi-Fi can deliver greater ease of use and automation to strapped IT departments and keep costs low for the enterprise. That said, organizations don’t want to sacrifice the robustness, performance and reliability of traditional wireless networks. With its new Cloud Wi-Fi offering, Aruba is marrying traditional Wi-Fi networking with the benefits of a Cloud-based solution, and should be able to capitalize on this growing Cloud market.”
