Jan 09, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
HarborLink Network, Ltd., a provider of public Wi-Fi networks, has chosen Aruba Networks, Inc., a provider of network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, for managed Wi-Fi service upgrade at 350 corporate-owned restaurant locations across North America.
"When faced with a two-week deadline for upgrading our Wi-Fi offering in 350 restaurant locations, we looked for a cost-effective, enterprise-grade solution that was simple to deploy and manage, said Rick Tangeman, HarborLink president and CEO. "Unlike other Wi-Fi vendor solutions we considered, Aruba's Instant platform provides a full set of features, including Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) for automated interference mitigation and Aruba Activate which reduces our deployment time by at least 75%."
When complete, HarborLink will have installed Aruba's Instant access points (IAPs) in more than 800 of the restaurant chain's locations across the US and Canada enabling free Wi-Fi access for restaurant patrons.
"We are pleased that HarborLink selected our Instant Enterprise solution for their customer's Wi-Fi upgrade," said Frederick Harris, head of service provider marketing, Aruba Networks. "This restaurant deployment is an excellent example of how low-cost, enterprise-class Wi-Fi can be easily and quickly provisioned as a managed service. We look forward to collaborating with HarborLink on future Wi-Fi deployments."
