By Lync-qualifying all of its indoor and outdoor 802.11ac products, from the entry level up to industrial-grade series, Aruba is supporting Lync in almost any environment.
If you’ve ever been to the country of Aruba, one of the unique characteristics is that it rarely rains there. In fact, I’ve been there a few times and never experienced a drop of rain. I guess that’s why there are so many happy Arubans! However, the other Aruba, Aruba Networks, is hoping to make a lot of rain by making Microsoft Lync customers happy.
Last week, the Wi-Fi vendor announced that its 802.11ac access points (APs) are the first to be certified under the Microsoft Lync Server Wi-Fi qualification program. The qualification includes both indoor APs, where most of the industry has focused, as well as Aruba’s outdoor APs, which I believe to be a growing area as more and more organizations are looking to extend wireless outside the walls of the building. Also, the qualification ensures that the configuration of the wireless networks adheres to the rigid guidelines laid out by Microsoft to ensure quality voice and video transmission.
