Extend your edge with Aruba Ruggedized Solutions
A ruggedized network keeps devices and users connected and productive in harsh environments without compromising security, performance, or operational simplicity.
Harsh indoor and outdoor environments create IT challenges
- Traditional network equipment designed to operate in extreme temperatures, outdoors, or in hazardous environments often has limited management capabilities, requiring highly manual operations with on-site IT.
- IoT devices like security cameras, PoE lighting, and sensors bring safety and OT benefits, but they increase security risks because they are often deployed beyond controlled office spaces.
- To optimize user experience and support an ever-increasing number and range IoT devices, the ruggedized network must deliver the latest advances in Wi-Fi, wired connectivity, and cloud-based services. This includes support for high power PoE, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), 802.15.4/Zigbee, and USB extensions.
Wi-Fi 6 has left the building
Simple to install and purpose built for the outdoors and hazardous indoor deployments, Aruba’s comprehensive portfolio of Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 certified APs support outdoor campus environments of any size, large public venues, hazardous areas, and even oil rigs or industrial freezers.
