Strong take-up of next gen network WiFi solution, says Aruba

By

Global network vendor Aruba Networks says the growth in mobile devices such as smart phones, tablets and laptops - and the many personal and corporate applications they support – has led to “significant adoption” in the Australian and New Zealand regional market of its next-generation Wi-Fi networking solution, 802.11ac.

Announced in May last year, Aruba (NASDAQ: ARUN),claims its 802.11ac solution, which includes the 220 Series Access Points (APs) and patented ClientMatch technology, can improve speeds and bandwidth for 802.11ac up to 1.3 Gbps and can even improve 802.11n clients by more than 30%.

According to Steve Coad, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand for Aruba Networks, the demand for 802.11ac solutions in ANZ has been “growing steadily through the second half of 2013.”

Coad says he expects growth in the Australia, New Zealand market to continue this year.

Coad cites IDC networking analyst, Tafadzwa Marasha, supporting his growth assertions by stating, “IDC forecasts that 802.11ac will grow at a similar pace as that experienced by its predecessor, 802.11n. As part of this growth, we expect to see vendors that have shown commitment to ushering in this next generation of wireless LAN positioned at the forefront once the technology becomes mainstream.”

Coad says “innovative organisations” that have made the move to deploy the Aruba Networks 802.11ac solution in Australia include Medibank, The Catholic Education Office Sydney, TAFE NSW – South Western Sydney Institute, University of New England, University of Technology Sydney, KPMG, Feros Care, Mount Waverley Secondary College, Ravenswood School for Girls and Stuartholme School.

“The rapid take up in education, both K-12 and tertiary, is no surprise as this sector is typified by dense cells with large download and upload requirements; the very situation for which 802.11ac was designed.

“The benefits of implementing an 802.11ac solution are evident today, with many of our customers operating on these networks for several months. With new models of Apple and Android devices, as well as laptops, shipping as 802.11ac capable, now is the time for organisations to take the leap forward.

“The superiority of our solution is appealing to the early adopters of 802.11ac and customers can be confident they will be successful with Aruba’s proven enterprise grade, high performance Wi-Fi solution,” Coad said.
