Data Solutions signs wireless distribution deal with Aruba Networks

25 Aug 2011

Data Solutions has signed an agreement with Aruba Networks in order to make Aruba Network’s wireless solutions available to its reseller network in Ireland.

This follows the opening of Aruba Networks’ European headquarters in Cork in June, which created 40 jobs.

Aruba Networks’ Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture fuses wired and wireless infrastructures into one network access solution.

This allows mobile workers to have consistent and secure access to the appropriate network resources regardless of where they are or what device they are using.

It will also help improve productivity and reduce capital and operational costs.

“We’re extremely pleased to add Data Solutions to our European distribution network,” said Andy Clark, channel manager, UK and Ireland for Aruba Networks.  

“There are huge opportunities for Aruba Networks in Ireland. We are particularly excited about this agreement as the Irish market offers up great opportunities and we recently opened our new European headquarters in Cork, as demand for our wireless products is continuing to see strong growth.”

This agreement reflects requests from employees to stay connect to their corporate network via their own mobile device.

“Corporate wireless networking is exploding. Tablets, smartphones and other personal mobile devices have moved into the enterprise network and are rapidly becoming an integral part of how work gets done across all types of organisations,” said Michael O’Hara, managing director of Data Solutions.

“With Aruba Networks, next-generation network access solutions, organisations can securely integrate wireless devices with the corporate network.”
