Aruba market share soars 10pc
Dubai, October 11, 2007
The share of Aruba Networks in the enterprise wireless LAN market have risen by more than 10 per cent in the second quarter of 2007.
This is roughly more than five per cent compared to the same period in 2005, said an official of the company which is a global leader in user-centric networks and secure mobility solutions.
The market data is based on a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group and include sales of Aruba products by Alcatel-Lucent. During the same period Motorola's Symbol unit lost market share, and Aruba displaced Motorola as the world's second largest enterprise wireless LAN supplier, the official added.
'Aruba's level of commitment to innovation and superior service has been instrumental in the company's success to date. Further, the growth in Middle East's tourism, medical, education, finance and government sectors is driving the deployment of wireless LAN networks across the region,' said vice-president of Aruba, MEA, Khalid Ishrug Laban.
'Hospitals and logistics organisations are also benefiting from wireless solutions,' he added.
Aruba is a member of a coalition including Cisco, Intel, Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, eBay, and Symantec, among others, supporting The Patent Reform Act of 2007, which passed the House on September 7 by a vote of 220-175.
The Act aims to overhaul the U.S. patent system, which the coalition believes is overburdened with applications for trivial inventions and patent litigation intended to prevent competition and reap windfall profits. - TradeArabia News Service
