Leverage existing infrastructure
Aruba Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 access points are equipped with USB ports, Bluetooth, and 802.15.4 (Zigbee) radios to support a wide range of IoT use cases.
Choosing to work with Aruba’s technology partner ecosystem extends the value of existing infrastructure, which can lower total cost of ownership.
Partnerships extend the value of Aruba ESP
Third-party devices, applications, and services can use the open interfaces and APIs to plug vertical-specific systems into ESP without having to change the underlying infrastructure. This allows ESP customers to easily support changing IT, IoT, and OT requirements by plugging new systems into their existing Aruba infrastructure.

Defensive Patent Program for Aruba Technology Partners
The threat of patent lawsuits from competitors can stifle entrepreneurship and innovation, especially for early stage and small-to-medium sized companies without a large, defensive patent portfolio. Aruba’s parent corporation, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, has a long and storied history as a technology innovator, and has amassed a vast patent portfolio.
Our Defensive Patent Program can help Aruba Technology Partners deter IP aggression and ward off patent battles. Technology partners in good standing may negotiate to purchase all right, title, and interest in select patents for legal defense purposes. A program advisory logo further warns away potential aggressors.
