Aruba Networks, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) company, is allowing customers to buy its mobile network products on a subscription basis. Customers can now procure Aruba’s products on-demand, including networking products for Wi-Fi and wide area network (WAN) connectivity, as well as its consulting and support services.
And the networking products can be managed for customers by resellers and for service providers using Aruba Central, which is hosted in the public cloud. The portal enables Aruba resellers to offer managed services to their customers and to support multi-tenancy.
Recently HPE’s CEO Meg Whitman said the company was looking for “more ROI-based, smart acquisitions like Aruba.”
