Aruba introduces simple, secure Wi-Fi for SMEs

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company has introduced Aruba Instant On, a new family of secure wireless solutions designed to address the current and future needs of small businesses with capacity for growth. 

The Instant On family will initially include indoor/outdoor Wi-Fi access points (APs) designed to deliver secure, high-speed wireless connectivity with hassle-free set-up and management, all with the quality, performance and exceptional support that customers expect from Aruba.

David Dennis, Executive Vice President, Product Management at SYNNEX Corporation said, "Aruba is leveraging its extensive experience in enterprise networking to bring high-speed wireless connectivity to small businesses that need secure, scalable Wi-Fi with simplified setup and management. The SMB market is a focus for SYNNEX and our market-leading Varnex community of partners dedicated to providing great technology solutions at affordable prices. As the largest stocking distributor for Aruba, SYNNEX sees an enormous market opportunity with this new portfolio of products."

Featuring Aruba's 802.11ac Wave 2 technology, the Instant On portfolio combines Aruba's business-grade Wi-Fi in a simple, easy-to-set-up solution that offers the flexibility to scale up as business needs dictate. The Instant On family also features:

  • A simple, intuitive mobile app for easy set-up and management
  • Two management modes via the Instant On mobile app or cloud-based web portal
  • Best-in-class security capabilities, including compliance with the latest authentication protocols such as WPA2/WPA3
  • Smart Mesh technology for easy expansion of the network to hard-to-wire areas
  • Ceiling, wall mount and desktop options to suit a variety of small business environments

Zeus Kerravala, Founder and Principal Analyst at ZK Research said, "the quality and security of Wi-Fi connectivity is a real consideration for small business customers when they're deciding where to play, stay, dine and do business because so much about the overall experience is tied to staying connected. The introduction of Aruba Instant On gives small businesses the ability to simply and easily deploy a wireless solution that can be managed remotely by even non-tech savvy people from any mobile device."

The first set of Aruba Instant On APs will begin shipping in early July.
