Aruba Networks Centalizes Wi-Fi in the Cloud

Aruba Networks this week announced its cloud based Wi-Fi AP solution today, known as Aruba Central. The purpose of Aruba Central is to enable easy cloud based management of Aruba Instant APs across multiple physical locations.

This isn't the first time that Aruba has announced a hosted cloud approach to AP management. Back in 2009, Aruba announced its AirWave on Demand solution in an attempt to enable cloud management of wireless devices.

Aruba no longer offers Airwave on Demand as a solution that customers can acquire. Rajeev Shah, senior product manager at Aruba explained to Enterprise Networking Planet that back in 2009, Aruba also did not have its Aruba Instant portfolio either. Aruba Instant was first announced in 2011 as a controller-less architecture for APs.
