District School Board (DCDSB) chose to upgrade its wireless LAN (WLAN) with an
enterprise-class solution from Aruba. Tailored to support DCDSB's 21st Century

controller-less access points (APs) and controller-based APs, along with
remote APs (RAPs), enabling the School Board support the various wireless
needs in each of its facilities. Sylvia Hooks, Director, Product Marketing for
Aruba, commented, "Aruba is the only WLAN vendor to offer both controller-less
and controller-based deployments on a single architecture. This allows school
districts like DCDSB to not only mix and match between the two architectures
based on their initial needs, but to also alter their deployment as their
requirements change over time. With Aruba, school districts can keep 100
percent of their initial investment since switching from controller-less to
controller-based APs doesn't require any hardware changes." The Full Research
