Gartner positions Aruba as the top networking vendor in the world

Aruba has officially taken the leading position in Gartner’s magic quadrant measuring critical capability use cases. Topping the quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure, HPE Aruba ranked number one in all use-cases in the Critical Capabilities report and received the highest score of 6 out of 6.

According to the report Aruba operates as a subsidiary of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), and has one of the broadest wired/wireless access layer portfolios in the market. Organisations can manage Aruba Instant controller-less APs on-premises or as part of a cloud offering.

Leading Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Aruba distributor, Axiz, has seen tremendous traction in the market with the Aruba stack and it’s evident that its channel partners see the value in HPE and Aruba. As the leading distributor in the region Axiz has subsequently invested significantly in skills and resources to support not only its channel partners but Hewlett Packard Enterprise as a vendor. Axiz offers the full stack of services around Aruba – presales skills, site surveys and installation services on the entire wired and wireless Aruba and OfficeConnect solution.

“We recognise that our channel partners are looking to us in order to assist and facilitate doing business with the full Hewlett Packard Enterprise stack. We have therefore adjusted our business and are certified to provide installation services across the board.

We have also equipped our Executive Briefing and Demo centre with the appropriate solutions and this has assisted tremendously with partners and their customers getting to grips with the new HPE & Aruba solutions in a live environment” says Jim Holland, Executive for HPE at Axiz.
