Business description: Aruba Networks is a privately-held data communications company that manufactures and markets high-performance wireless network switching systems (WLAN) for enterprises and hot spot service providers. Aruba is credited with developing one of the first intelligent, high-performance WLAN switches that specifically addresses security and deployment problems that have inhibited the adoption of 802.11 (Wi-Fi) technology by large corporations. Aruba's products uniquely enable corporations and providers to simplify the deployment and lower the cost of operating large-scale 802.11 infrastructures through a centralized switching system specifically built for operating wireless LANs.
