Following a $3 billion deal in May, HP has acquired networking vendor giant Aruba Networks. This acquisition has created a strong combined force to be reckoned with in the IT networking market.
The integration between the two brands’ portfolio means that Aruba’s best-of-breed mobility software, WLAN hardware and specialised sales & marketing channel will complement HP’s leading networking portfolio to create a converged campus network setup that HP will be able to provide for their clients.
This converged campus network will allow both small and large enterprises to deploy end-to-end mobile solutions throughout their workspace environment, with the latest enterprise networking software, policy management and security.
HP’s large market share in wired networking will see the two brands capitalise on this acquisition by combining Aruba wireless and HP wired infrastructure via a unified management console. Thereafter, with joint road maps discussions expected in the coming month, HP’s broad go-to-market capability will help sell the simplified converged networking solutions through its vast network distribution channels, whilst Aruba’s specialised go-to-market will support campus solutions with the entire networking portfolio.
What HP Networking can now deliver:
- Network services up to 83% faster meeting users’ demands
- A safe transformation to a future-ready network that enables business outcomes
- Redefined network economics with a TCO that’s 47% lower while delivering high quality of service
Ultimately, with Aruba’s leading wireless LAN technology and differentiated software solutions, coupled with HP’s robust switching portfolio, HP Networking can deliver to you industry’s leading, next wave of networking innovation, enabling you to accelerate your adoption of mobility solutions for a digital workplace, and help you reap the benefits of the cloud.
