Aruba ranked No 1 for Wi-Fi innovation
Dubai, January 23, 2008
Aruba Networks, a global leader in user-centric networks and secure mobility solutions, has obtained the top ranking in innovation in ABI Research’s new report titled “Voice Over Wi-Fi Ecosystems Vendor Matrix.”
The Vendor Matrix is an analytical tool developed by ABI Research to provide a clear understanding of vendors’ positions in specific markets with respect to innovation and implementation, in this case for the voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) market, said an official spokesman.
The innovation ranking is based on how a technology addresses roaming, call management, endpoint security, VoWi-Fi reporting, intrusion detection and protection, troubleshooting, fixed-mobile convergence schemes, fast handoffs, load balancing, battery life, quality of service, and architecture.
These criteria are key to the various industry sectors in which Aruba plays a leading role throughout the Middle East region including tourism, medical, education, finance, government, and logistics.
“Enterprises in the region benefit from deploying best-in-class adaptive wireless LANS and voice solutions to increase productivity and reduce operational costs,” said sales director, Aruba MENA, Khalid Ishruq Laban.
“We have relentlessly pursued innovative solutions to RF interference, ease-of-use, and client interoperability to name just a few. We are delighted to have our efforts recognized by ABI Research, especially given that our competitors included some of the largest technology companies in the world.”
The implementation ranking is based on partnerships with resellers and technology providers. Aruba was ranked first in innovation and second overall in a field of 12 suppliers.
Aruba’s user-centric networks securely deliver the enterprise network to users by integrating adaptive wireless LANs, identity-based security, remote access, and fixed mobile convergence solutions into a cohesive, high-performance system.
Adaptive wireless LANs deliver follow-me connectivity to roaming users, support standard Wi-Fi clients -such as Apple Macintosh and Intel Centrino - and deliver toll-quality WPA2 encrypted voice and streaming video. Aruba’s identity-based security associates policies with users instead of ports, delivering follow-me security that provides unprecedented mobility for users without compromising security.
Remote access and enterprise fixed mobile convergence solutions deliver follow-me applications and toll-quality voice to users wherever they work or roam.
The ABI Report report, “Voice Over Wi-Fi Ecosystems Vendor Matrix,” was published in December 2007. – TradeArabia News Service
