  /LP,/TX     Byline: Patrick Mannion 
       Manhasset, N.Y. - Aruba Wireless Networks will emerge from stealth mode 
    this week with an IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) solution for the enterprise that 
    it believes will overcome the security, deployment and management fears 
    that are slowing wireless LAN penetration in that market. Based on an 
    intelligent, centralized switch architecture, Aruba's hardware and software 
    combination effectively "locks" the enterprise air space and provides 
    self-calibrating, self-healing capabilities, along with load-sharing and 
    mobile IPSec firewalling at gigabit data rates. 
    Using a centralized architecture to simplify WLAN deployment is not new. 
    Last September, Symbol Technologies Inc. announced its Mobius architecture 
    based on a central switch and a network of "dumbed down" access ports. Both 
    Aruba and Symbol stress a centralized WLAN's cost-effectiveness, ease of 
    deployment, quick software upgrades and better client service management. 
     
       But, said co-founder Pankaj Manglik, Aruba has taken the concept further 
    through advanced signal monitoring, scalable, high-speed security processing 
    with a hardware encryption engine, self-calibration and higher-layer packet 
    processing. Manglik, who was with Alteon before it was bought by Nortel 
    Networks, said, "We have over 20 patents on this technology, starting with 
    the air monitoring."
