Aruba Networks emails me quite often with wireless LAN customer wins. Either it is signing more customers than other WLAN vendors, or it simply publicizes its wins more often.  Usually I don’t bother to write about this customer news, but a couple of recent announcements have caught my eye.

First there was Aruba’s announcement that Carnegie Mellon University has just completed the deployment of 1,540 802.11n access points across its campus. Aruba said that Carnegie Mellon was particularly attracted to the company’s Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology, which simplified access points deployment and maintenance. The school was also attracted to Aruba’s Policy-Enforcement Firewall (PEF), which provides identity-based security, Quality of Service (QoS) control and traffic management.

Meanwhile over in Australia, IBM announced that it had won a contract from the government of New South Wales, to design, deploy and manage wireless LAN infrastructure for 463 secondary schools. IBM will install Aruba technology in all of those schools, providing wireless connectivity to more than 200,000 students and 25,000 teachers. That’s a big contract and a lot of access points.
