Aruba Networks, Inc. Key Developments

Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District Preps for 21st Century Learning with Aruba Networks Gigabit Wireless Network

Aruba Networks announced that Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District of Houston is deploying a new Gigabit wireless infrastructure to support the district’s commitment to 21st century K-12 education. Using Aruba’s 802.11ac solution and ClearPass Policy Management platform, CFISD plans to adopt a Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) policy for its 113,000+ students and 14,000 staff and teachers. As part of its vision to maximize students’ potential and prepare them to be global leaders, CFISD realized they needed to deploy the right technology across their school campuses and in their classrooms. The district is implementing a one-to-many device strategy and will allow students and staff to bring their own devices onto the school campuses. To address these challenges, CFISD replaced its existing wireless infrastructure with Aruba’s 802.11ac solution, installing more than 8,000 Aruba200 Series Access Points both indoors and outdoors, 7200 Series Mobility Controllers, AirWave network management and ClearPass for 802.1X and guest wireless authentication. With the help of partner Layer 3 Communications of Houston, Texas, the district is currently installing the new infrastructure in its middle and high schools and plans to roll out the new wireless network in its elementary schools in the fall. ClearPass was a key factor in CFISD’s decision to select Aruba. The district’s vision to allow BYOT for all students, staff and faculty, as well as allow guests to connect to the wireless network, meant that security, authentication and policy management were key concerns. With ClearPass, CFISD can now identify all BYO devices and create differentiated policies based on the type of users for example, student, teacher, administrator or guest to determine the appropriate network access that each user’s device can have.

Aruba Networks Advances Mobile Collaboration for Digital Workplace with the Introduction of 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Points

Aruba Networks ushers in greater network performance for the digital workplace with the introduction of the Aruba 320 series access points. The 320 series is the industry’s first 802.11ac Wave 2 AP with dynamic multi-user multiple input/multiple output (MU-MIMO) grouping, significantly boosting network capacity. It is the only Wave 2 AP in its class to integrate a BLE Beacon that can help manage battery-powered Aruba Beacons from the cloud for firmware updates, battery life monitoring, and configuration changes. The ultra-fast Aruba 320 series 802.11ac Wave 2 APs offer the high performance in high-density environments and can be managed by a Mobility Controller or deployed in controllerless Aruba Instant mode. These Wave 2 access points deliver multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) aware ClientMatch to boost network efficiency and support the growing device density demands on network. By 2018, it is projected that 75% of workers in large organizations will interact with video more than three times daily1. Therefore, IT departments are challenged to support increasing Wi-Fi capacity performance requirements. Additionally, the introduction of a higher performing 802.11ac Wave 2 infrastructure requires the right kind of network intelligence to take advantage of new MU-MIMO-capable mobile devices by steering and grouping them together. As an Aruba Wave 2 beta customer, Netflix Inc., the Internet television network with over 62 million members in over 50 countries, is closely tracking the advancements in 802.11ac technology to support the bandwidth and capacity requirements of emerging applications. Leveraging Wave 2 to Support #GenMobile in the Digital Workplace. To prepare for the anticipated tsunami of Wave 2 devices, Aruba has introduced new innovations into its patented ClientMatch technology, which originally solved the sticky client problem. The new enhanced Aruba ClientMatch incorporates intelligent awareness for Wave 2 MU-MIMO clients, automatically steering and grouping MU-MIMO devices together on Aruba 320 series APs. This allows the 320 series to transmit data to multiple Wave 2-enabled devices simultaneously, increasing overall network capacity. Through these Wave 2 enhancements, ClientMatch technology will not only improve individual device performance, but it will also boost overall network efficiency for 802.11ac Wave 2. The result is up to 42% improvement in performance over competing Wave 2 solutions without the enhanced ClientMatch technology. Expanding Indoor Location Services with Integrated Bluetooth Beacons and Management In developed countries, most people spend the majority of their time indoors, and more than half own Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled smartphones. This large market, compounded with a growing number of companies planning to implement indoor location-based services, presents a unique opportunity for organizations to take advantage of Aruba Mobile Engagement. Aruba has integrated Bluetooth low-energy Aruba Beacons into the 320 series AP. This enables remote, cloud-based management of battery-powered Aruba Beacons, eliminating the need to install a USB version of the Aruba Beacon on Aruba access points. Standalone beacons from competing vendors lack backend management tools and can’t efficiently scale to enterprise-wide or large public venue deployments. With the 320 series’ integrated Aruba Beacon, enterprises can now remotely manage, configure, and monitor battery levels from a cloud-based server, even for large-scale deployments with thousands of beacons. The Aruba 320 series APs will be available in calendar third quarter 2015. 320 series AP prices start at U.S. list $1,395. Enhanced ClientMatch is also available in June as part of the new ArubaOS 6.4.4 software enhancement.
