Building on a strong foundation
As a long-standing Aruba customer , schools of the Innoventures Education group were the first educational institutes in the UAE to implement an endto-end Aruba network architecture , enabling a stateof-the-art IT environment comprising infrastructure from Hewlett Packard and HP desktops , laptops and printing equipment .
Rapid digitalisation of the education sector prompted a need for the group to consider a network infrastructure refresh . Aruba continued to present a strong case for the group to build on its long-standing success and proven architecture .
“ While we did our due diligence and evaluated other vendors which were also Gartner Magic Quadrant leaders , we were especially impressed by Aruba ’ s diverse range of enhanced network access control
