All-In On IoT

Aruba Tuesday stepped up its Internet of Things sales charge with its first Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard based access points, switches and artificial intelligence software.

The new Wi-Fi 6 standard—the sixth generation of wireless technology—is powering a whopping four times improvement in Wi-Fi performance with the new Aruba access points, switches and NetInsight software. That's because the new Wi-Fi standard supports simultaneous traffic from multiple access points.

The faster speeds from the new Aruba 510 Series access points—along with major advances in power management and AI capabilities—are set to power a new generation of IoT solutions, said partners.

Among the biggest breakthroughs are new power management features from Aruba's NetInsight AI-powered analytics software that powers down access points, saving customers millions of dollars in energy costs.

The primary sales targets out of the gate for the new Wi-Fi 6 products are high-density and crowded environments like stadiums, universities and airports, said Lissa Hollinger, vice president of product and solutions marketing for Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company

"This this next wave of Wi-Fi technology has been purpose-designed to address some of the acute pain points that customers are seeing in those high-density and crowded environments," said Hollinger. "Those types of businesses are going to be the first to embrace this next wave of technology."

Another big market opportunity is the millions of customers that are still on the fourth and fifth generation of Wi-Fi technology, said Hollinger.

The new Aruba 510 Series access points are available immediately starting at $1,095.
