Aruba Networks has signed a partnership agreement with EMW today to promote its portfolio of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise market in the Middle East.
The agreement requires EMW to sell, implement and service Aruba’s products across all market segments and industry verticals with a special focus on government, hospitality, education and healthcare.
EMW also has global alliances of similar nature with Juniper and Brocade. Aruba considers this an advantage as EMW will be able to offer its customers a comprehensive integrated solution for next generation data centres.
Speaking about the partnership, Bashar Bashaireh, Regional Director, Gulf and Pakistan, Aruba Networks Middle East says, “Aruba Networks is highly committed to the UAE market and is constantly looking for strong partners that can help grow our business through their strong presence in the local market, high levels of technical expertise, value added products portfolio that complement our solutions and a wide customer base in verticals we are looking to target. EMW scored high on all these requirements making it a natural choice. We look forward to working closely with the company and will offer extensive support and training to its staff in implementing our solutions and attaining the various required accreditation. We are confident that it will play a significant role in contributing to our success in the region”.
Aruba’s ClearPass access management solution that covers all network security & access control requirements of a network from a single platform will be EMW’s focus in the region.
The solution integrates easy with the network security and IT systems of a multi-vendor infrastructure.
Osama AlHaj-Eisa, Channel Director, Middle East & Turkey at Aruba Networks says, “In order to be able to penetrate the region’s networking market, it is imperative for us to form alliances with ‘smart convergence’ experts like EMW who share the same vision as us. Our cutting-edge technology combined with EMW’s technical excellence make for a very exciting future.”
Serjios EL-Hage, CEO, EMW Middle East says, “We are very pleased to have been signed on as partners for Aruba Networks and see a huge potential for the company’s world-class portfolio of wireless solutions in this region as organizations build out their data centres and look to implement networking infrastructures that are capable of supporting cloud, virtualisation and mobility trends. We have the knowledge and expertise to promote Aruba’s products and are confident that customers in the UAE will respond well to the technology.”
