Aruba Networks, Inc. (ARUN) announced that CELSA GROUP is replacing an outdated wireless network with Aruba’s wireless solutions and AirWave management solution. The major steel manufacturer in Europe finds Aruba solutions capable of surviving in harsh industrial environments reports Market Watch. With operations in 12 European countries, Aruba has been deployed to six already, with the majority of the sites using Aruba’s Virtual Branch Network solution, configuring the wireless access points as Remote APs and centrally managing them using the AirWave Wireless Management Suite.
“‘A steel factory and warehouse is a very difficult environment for any IT solution,’ said Juan Jose Luna, Telecommunications Project Leader CELSA Barcelona. ‘Extremely high temperatures, high levels of electrically conductive steel dust in the air, and a constantly changing RF environment: Despite all of these challenges, the Aruba solution is incredibly reliable. Beyond the ruggedness of the solution, it is the flexibility and ease of management that we really like about Aruba.'”
