|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."|
