Aruba Networks has updated its wireless Lan management systems for the control of enterprise mobile networks, to deliver easier management and support more scalable networks.
The firm has announced the release of ArubaOS 3.1, a new version of the operating system and application engine for all Aruba mobility controllers, and Mobility Management System (MMS) 2.0, the next-generation suite of applications for planning and managing mobility networks.
The latest versions of ArubaOS and MMS are designed to provide enterprises with a global mobility domain that is scalable, multi-service, integrated with existing security infrastructure and managed intelligently.
To support this, new features in the systems include: management contexts to enable the delegation of management rights for various physical equipment and service to appropriate administrators; bandwidth control to resolve the issue of slow clients and boost service level agreements; and voice management and control to expand scalability and performance and provide detailed monitoring and management for Voice over Wi-Fi services.
Improved security services integration also allows easier integration of existing security devices and infrastructure with the Aruba mobility network.
The Aruba Mobile Edge Architecture is designed to deliver secure mobility beyond basic wireless Lan (WLan) connectivity, to provide consistent network services to a user at headquarters and wherever the user roams, including branch locations, partner sites and home offices.
Both ArubaOS 3.1 and MMS 2.0 are available at no additional charge as an upgrade to existing customers.
