Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN) said it has announced that its indoor and outdoor enterprise 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points are the first in the industry to be qualified under the Microsoft Lync Server Wi-Fi qualification program.
The qualification program ensures that products conform to Microsoft´s stringent guidelines for end-user voice and video quality. With this qualification, enterprises of all sizes can now leverage the speed and reliability of Aruba gigabit Wi-Fi to ensure predictable unified communications experiences.
The significant growth of #GenMobile employees using Lync-enabled smartphones, laptops and tablets has placed increased strain on enterprise Wi-Fi infrastructures, boosting demand for a Lync-qualified 802.11ac solution. With its patented ClientMatch technology, Aruba´s new 802.11ac APs are ideal for enterprises seeking cost-effective, reliable and high-performance wireless solutions on which to run Lync unified communications.
Aruba offers wireless solutions for Lync on-premises, hosted, and Office 365 applications. With technologies like AppRF, Aruba can automatically differentiate Lync voice, video, and desktop sharing from other application streams and prioritize Lync traffic to deliver a better overall user experience. The high performance of Lync over Aruba Wi-Fi particularly with the added bandwidth of 802.11ac is enabling enterprises worldwide to discard wired IP phones in favor of mobile Lync clients.
