SUNNYVALE, Calif. - May 30, 2012 - Streakwave Wireless, a global value-added distributor of wireless broadband networking equipment, telecommunications, security solutions, and two-way communications, today announced a distribution agreement with Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN) for enterprise Wi-Fi, network management, and access control products. Aruba Networks is a leading provider of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise.
"Sophisticated wireless broadband, two-way radio, and telecommunications resellers want end-to-end secure mobility solutions for their enterprise, education, government, and healthcare customers," said Robert Bruce, Aruba Networks' vice president of channel sales. 'Streakwave's seasoned sales and expert pre-sales support organizations will take us into new market segments, complementing our existing distribution programs, and we’re delighted to welcome them into our channel."
"Traditionally our resellers, integrators, and wireless Internet service providers have focused on connectivity," said Carl Moberg, CEO of Streakwave Wireless. "Today, however, there’s growing demand for multimedia applications and BYOD initiatives that mandate feature-rich, robust, and scalable enterprise Wi-Fi networks that are highly secure. Aruba’s products address these needs and fit exceptionally well into our product portfolio."
The Aruba product lines on which Streakwave will focus include:
- · Aruba Instant: a plug-and-play, secure,
multimedia-ready Wi-Fi solution targeted at small-to-medium enterprises (SME),
small-to-medium businesses (SMB), and a wide range of vertical markets. The
ultimate in configuration simplicity, these highly affordable 802.11n access
points self-form into enterprise-class, highly secure Wi-Fi networks;
- Aruba AirWave Network Management: provides end-to-end management of multivendor, multisite networks including user location and mapping, real-time monitoring, proactive alerts, historical reporting, and troubleshooting aides;
- Aruba ClearPass Access Management System: ideal for BYOD provisioning and onboarding, ClearPass makes it easy for IT-issued and personal mobile devices to securely connect to any network.
"Aruba Instant is tailor-made to deliver enterprise-class security and performance in a solution that both costs less and can be set-up in less than five minutes," said Josh Kwok, CTO of Streakwave Wireless. "This is a truly complementary addition to Streakwave’s broad offering of outdoor and indoor wireless equipment, and one we believe our customers will rapidly adopt."
