Aruba Networks Profile

By Sean Patton, Published Feb 22, 2018, 02:14pm EST (Info+)

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.
