Aruba Networks, a US-based network solutions provider, today announced a new cloud-managed Wi-Fi solution that combines cloud-hosted services with enterprise-grade wireless LANs (WLANs).
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-size networks.
Aruba Networks claims that the new cloud-managed Wi-Fi solution offers 10x faster speeds than competitive solutions and all the features of a traditional enterprise-class WLAN.
Aruba is also 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.
Unlike previous generations of cloud solutions, the Aruba cloud Wi-Fi solution doesn't sacrifice critical enterprise capabilities such as performance, resiliency and flexibility for simplified, cloud-hosted management.
