Aruba Networks, International Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN), a leading provider of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, signed a one year memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Aramex , a leading global provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions, to achieve the objective of widespread global use of information technology and communication. This partnership will see Aramex use of Aruba’s secure WLAN technology, Network Access Control, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and Network Management System.
The memorandum outlines the complete coverage of Aruba Networks wireless connectivity across all Aramex locations globally. This partnership will ensure wireless coverage is secured in Aramex offices and warehouses, enabling guest access to partners, suppliers and auditors and to provide constant and secure access to employees to use their own tablets and smartphones.
“It is with great excitement that we announce this memorandum of understanding with Aramex . Global companies are constantly searching for reliable wireless network access to support a broad variety of mobility requirements. Logistics management, guest services, and Bring Your Own Device initiatives are just an example of the areas of collaboration between Aruba Networks and Aramex ,” said Ammar Enaya, General Manager of the Middle East at Aruba Networks. “Aruba Networks is looking forward to collaborating with Aramex and its strong alliance network worldwide.”
In addition to its Wireless LAN, ClearPass and Airwave portfolios, Aruba Networks will provide Aramex with ArubaCare and PartnerCare support to improve technical assistance and reduce operational costs. ArubaCare provides immediate access to the Aruba Technical Assistance Center (ArubaTAC). Recently introduced to the global market, ArubaCare benefits both multinational and regional resellers, while PartnerCare is the leading support program option for resellers outside of North America.
Samer Awajan, Chief Technology Officer, Aramex commented “In recent years, Aramex has branched out its e – commerce services to growth markets around the world and enhanced its infrastructure considerably. In order to support our innovative customer-focused growth strategies, it is critical to have reliable and secure connectivity. Previously, wireless was only used as an add-on, with no guest access or security policies. With Aruba Networks solutions we will be able to use wireless connectivity 24/7 and keep enhancing our productivity and efficiency.”
Aruba Networks will conduct knowledge transfer sessions on a regular basis to teach Aramex employees the latest wireless technologies. The full implementation will take place after a testing period by the global services team and the roll out and implementation will initially take place in the newest sites, followed by all other locations.
