Aruba Networks, Inc. says that its adaptive 802.11n wireless LAN access point is the first ever to receive accreditation from the U.S. Army’s Office of Information Assurance and Certification (OIA&C). Additionally the company was included on the Army’s Information Assurance Approved Products List. In the company’s news release, Aruba said that in addition to 802.11n, the Army also tested and approved Aruba’s Virtual Branch Networking (VBN) and secure mesh solutions.
“U.S. Army users at last have access to secure 802.11n wireless LANs – operating at greater than 100 Mbps and with industry-leading capacity – for video, voice, and data applications.
“In addition to 802.11n, the Army also tested and approved Aruba’s Virtual Branch Networking (VBN) and secure mesh solutions. VBN provides remotely deployed sites, traveling commanders, and teleworkers with secure connection to data, voice, and video applications. The solution uses a family of low-cost, centrally managed Remote Access Points (RAPs) to connect to the data center via a range of different WAN links.”
