Aruba Networks Profile

By: Sean Patton, Published on Feb 22, 2018

Aruba Networks' presence in the video surveillance market has historically been limited. With a company focus on Wi-Fi first and switching practically an afterthought, security integrators would have little reason to take a second look at their offering.

However, thanks to a 2015 acquisition by HP Enterprise, Aruba gains instant recognition in surveillance as most of HPE's switch line now carries the Aruba name.

In this report we look at the Aruba/HPE line, dealer channel, how they compare to Netgear and Ubiquiti, and more.
