aruba: a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company

Aruba Networks is a leader in providing secure, reliable and scalable wireless connectivity for organizations that rely on wireless networking today.

Office workers are mobile, flex working, or in flex spaces and most use mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, smart phones or all three in their daily business life. BYOD or Bring Your Own Device has become reality.

With more devices being wirelessly enabled – cameras, sensors, monitors, meters, lights and so much more, the Internet of Things (IoT) is stretching our ability to manage wireless networks.

Aruba makes Wireless Networks for the Next Generation

The always-on, mobile next gen worker is entering the workforce. Will your network be ready?

Premise or Cloud Network Management

As wireless devices become pervasive within your environment and it becomes more challenge to manage the multiple devices needed by your staff  – simple, effective network management becomes a must.

Aruba Central provides an easy to use User Interface with Aruba Central network management and monitoring. Zero touch provisioning to remote sites, saves time and effort where a non-technical resource simply needs to power up the AP.

It also has advanced capabilities like customizable guest Wi-Fi, Aruba Clarity and presence analytics for smarter decision making.

Mobility Controllers for Next Gen Networks

Once you go beyond a simple WiFi network, you will need wireless controllers to deliver an always-on network, seamless roaming with built in intelligence and automation along with the required performance, user experience, reliability and security to support high density environments.

Aruba Mobility Controllers provide centralized network engineering, IP services, security and policy controls, and app-aware platforms. In addition to network control, they can be deployed as branch gateways, VPN concentrators, WIPS/WIDS and spectrum monitors, and stateful network firewalls with integrated content filtering.

Switching

As more devices and device types are added to your WiFi network it stresses the supporting switching fabric. Aruba’s industry-leading switches are scalable, secure, and feature HPE Smart Rate multi-gigabit ports for high-speed connectivity.

Aruba’s modern, programmable switches easily integrate with Aruba’s industry leading network management solutions, either cloud-based Aruba Central or on-prem with Aruba AirWave.

These switches come with built-in security features designed for mobile and IoT and integrate with Aruba ClearPass for advanced policy management.

Screaming Fast 11ac Wave 2

Aruba has constantly led the industry with the fastest WiFi access points (APs), including their new 11ac Wave 2 access points. The Aruba 3xx series of APs offer Aruba’s ClientMatch technology, ensuring all devices have the fastest connection at all times. They also include support for Multi-User MIMO devices and integrated Bluetooth Lowe Energy (BLE) beacon technology that supports remotely managed battery powered Aruba beacons

Aruba Security

Aruba have been renowned for their incredible network security, a result of their focus on Wifi. Aruba ClearPass + IntroSpect extends this to create an end-to-end secure connection.

Get 360 degree security protection by combining the network access control of ClearPass with the behaviour analytics based attach detection and alerting of IntroSpect.

Wireless Analytics

In many industries WiFi can add benefits beyond connecting users by providing detailed analytics. Aruba’s Analytics solution collects and analyzes data captured from the WLAN and mobile devices to deliver analytics that help IT and business groups of all types and sizes make smarter operational decisions.

Better understand foot traffic patterns with location analytics and use presence analytics, in Aruba Central, to better understand your customer behaviour. Learn when and how your branded iOS and Android mobile apps are being used. See what‘s being searched for most and how well your mobile push campaigns are doing with Meridian’s real-time analytics features.     

Intrusion Protection

Intrusion protection, while necessary, can become complex to implement and manage with IDS. With Aruba’s RFProtectTM software  organizations can prevent denial-of-service and man-in-the-middle attacks and mitigate over-the-air security threats.

You get integrated threat protection with every Aruba WLAN. Reduce deployment and management costs by leveraging Aruba access points to simultaneously serve Wi-Fi clients and contain wireless threats with RFProtect.

Not only do you get 24/7 protection against attacks and potential threats you can also automate regulatory and compliance reporting.

Policy Enforcement

With today’s demands on Wifi you need network security designed specifically for mobility. With Aruba you can enforce network access policies based on user roles, device types, app flows, location, and more.

Aruba provides intelligent application visibility and control with  AppRF™ technology. The Policy Enforcement Firewall leverages deep packet inspection to classify over 1,500 enterprise apps and features a policy wizard to block, prioritize and limit bandwidth for any app or groups of apps.

Flexibly separate any type of traffic flow with contextual policies based on identities, devices and location. Traffic flows simply adapt to the mobility state of the mobile user and device.
