Aruba announces new networking solutions


Aruba , a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, announced a new suite of integrated networking software and hardware solutions for enterprises.

The company said these solutions are aimed to address the digital workplace requirements of  today’s mobile-savvy workforce, and the escalating connectivity demands of Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Aruba’s new solutions are:

Aruba Clarity, a new software module for Aruba AirWave network management. With Aruba Clarity, AirWave can monitor a broad set of metrics such as the time it takes for a mobile device to associate with a Wi-Fi radio, authenticate to a RADIUS server, obtain an IP address through DHCP, and resolve names for DNS services.

Additionally, the new AirWave 8.2 release gives IT professionals detailed information on the amount of airtime wasted on web content that has been assigned a lower priority category and reputation, so they can take action and improve Wi-Fi health.

Enhancements to AirWave’s VisualRF feature set allow for time-lapse visualization of Wi-Fi coverage for up to 24 hours, dramatically reducing the time and manual intervention it takes for wireless network engineers to identify negative trends in Wi-Fi coverage.

Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager 6.6 release allows security operations teams to create policies that adapt to BYOD growth and the emerging challenges surrounding IoT adoption. ClearPass 6.6 enables custom device profiling for any uncategorized connected device, multi-factor authentication on mobile devices for network usage, and deeper forensics into security incidents.

Aruba 3810 Switch Series incorporates HPE Smart Rate technology, allowing enterprises to deliver data rates from 1 / 2.5 / 5 / 10Gbps.

With the multi-gigabit capability, the 3810 offers investment protection for IT departments that want to future-proof their network infrastructure as higher capacity wireless technologies emerge, far surpassing the 1Gbps Wi-Fi backhaul limit that exists today.
