The Next-Generation Workplace
Rightsizing Networks for Mobility
Enabling the next-generation workplace
Desk phones, projectors and audio-video systems are giving way to softphones and unified communications (UC) apps like Microsoft Lync and streaming services like Apple TV. Enterprises can now replace nearly all wired end-user connections with faster 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
By rightsizing with Aruba, you can reduce wired connections, save up to 76%, and redirect this savings toward building-out your mobility infrastructure. You’ll have one set of unified access policies for wireless, wired and VPNs, and manage it all from a single platform. Users can even onboard their own devices and get priority treatment for business-critical apps.
In the Aruba next-generation workplace, employees do not sit behind a desk with a company-issued PC and wired desk phone. They bring their own smartphones and tablets to work and they are always mobile.
Mobile UC on smartphones
It is now technically and economically feasible to replace those unwieldy desk phones with smartphones that use UC client software like Microsoft Lync. Gartner suggests you start by equipping IT-managed mobile devices with mobile UC apps instead of desk phones. Learn more about Microsoft Lync over Wi-Fi
Business apps in the cloud
Legions of enterprises are moving their server-based apps to the cloud. Going forward, streaming wireless services like Apple TV will replace projectors in conference rooms. More work will continue to get done using mobile apps on personally-owned devices. Learn more about mobile apps over Wi-Fi
Network + device + app policies for BYOD

Users securely onboard their own devices. And you can manage these devices and apps without violating user privacy. Learn more about solving BYOD challenges
