It will use Aruba’s secure WLAN technology, Network Access Control, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and Network Management System.
The memorandum outlines the complete coverage of Aruba Networks wireless connectivity across all Aramex locations globally, and will ensure wireless coverage is secured in Aramex offices and warehouses.
Ammar Enaya, General Manager, Middle East, Aruba Networks, said, “It is with great excitement that we announce this memorandum of understanding with Aramex. Global companies are constantly searching for reliable wireless network access to support a broad variety of mobility requirements.
“Logistics management, guest services, and Bring Your Own Device initiatives are just an example of the areas of collaboration between Aruba Networks and Aramex. Aruba Networks is looking forward to collaborating with Aramex and its strong alliance network worldwide.”
In addition to its Wireless LAN, ClearPass and Airwave portfolios, Aruba Networks will provide Aramex with ArubaCare and PartnerCare support to improve technical assistance and reduce operational costs.
Samer Awajan, Chief Technology Officer, Aramex said, “In recent years, Aramex has branched out its e – commerce services to growth markets around the world and enhanced its infrastructure considerably. In order to support our innovative customer-focused growth strategies, it is critical to have reliable and secure connectivity. Previously, wireless was only used as an add–on, with no guest access or security policies. With Aruba Networks solutions we will be able to use wireless connectivity 24/7 and keep enhancing our productivity and efficiency.”
Aruba Networks will conduct knowledge transfer sessions on a regular basis to teach Aramex employees the latest wireless technologies. The full implementation will take place after a testing period by the global services team and the roll out and implementation will initially take place in the newest sites, followed by all other locations.
