PQ Show 76: Understanding Aruba’s Unified Wired And Wireless Roadmap (Sponsored)

Today’s Priority Queue show comes to you from Atmosphere 2016 Vegas – the largest community conference for enterprise mobility engineers – hosted by Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company. Aruba has hit a $1 billion run rate for its mobility business since its acquisition by HPE, confirming the reasons behind the bold move.
As the two organizations came together, campus and data center switching products were added to the Aruba portfolio of networking products as well, further increasing the total addressable market for the organization.
Which brings us to the topic of today’s sponsored show with Aruba. The acquisition and the technology roadmap for the newly formed and unified networking organization cannot be viewed as simply as HPE Networking getting a new wireless LAN product line. There’s policy and management tools to consider. There’s some switching and wireless products that overlap — not everything can survive.
Ethan Banks and Greg Ferro are joined by Michael Dickman, VP of Product Management for campus switching products at Aruba. Michael will give a detailed update regarding the progress on the integration roadmap and answer some key questions, including:
What’s on the roadmap to integrate Aruba and HPE Networking product lines as they existed before the acquisition? What has been accomplished already? What does the unified wired and wireless networking portfolio look like?
What are the leading software solutions for policy and network management? How is Aruba’s “mobile-first” campus and branch network architecture different from others in the networking industry? And how will the partner and customer relationships be affected? Join us to hear all about it.
