Dell has signed a multi-year contract with Aruba Networks to offer enterprise Wi-Fi tools as part of an end-to-end system for network management.
The Dell PowerConnect W-Series is powered by Wi-Fi LAN products from Aruba designed to manage and maintain the delivery of applications and database access over a dedicated Wi-Fi system.
"It's all about creating a seamless network experience," said Larry Hart, senior manager of networks at Dell.
"Businesses see that workers are becoming more mobile all the time. Some 88 per cent of employees work in branch or regional offices, while many work away from their desk. As such, secure connectivity is vital."
Hart explained that firms are looking for products that offer complete control of the entire infrastructure from the datacentre through to the mobile edge of the network.
The new portfolio offers the W-3000 and W-600 controllers to provide secure connectivity for data, voice and video applications, as well as access points that adhere to 802.11a/b/g/n industry standards.
Finally, Dell will offer Aruba's AMP Wireless Management Suite that can help run and maintain multi-vendor wired, wireless and mobile device networks.
"It's great to see that Dell has added a management system to its product line as well as hardware, as it will give customers a complete offering," said Aruba Networks marketing manager Roger Hockaday.
"The combination of products means that businesses can get a complete picture of what is happening on the network."
Hart added that the products are primarily aimed at mid-market enterprises of between 12 and 1,000 users.
The PowerConnect W-Series will be made available this quarter in the UK, the US, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
