Aruba Networks Launches Airheads Community

Looking to meet the needs of the engineers driving a new era in access networking, Aruba Networks (News - Alert) has announced the launch of its new Airheads Community.

The IT engineers who are being challenged to deliver mobility services to a highly mobile enterprise workforce will find The Airheads Community useful. Engineers looking to grow and gain access to expert advice, take part in training and certification programs, or network with other professionals in the enterprise mobility space will benefit from participation in the community.

Various aspects of enterprise mobility, user dynamics, device types, applications and networks will be discussed in the Airheads Community, Aruba Networks stated in a press release.

“The Airheads Community gives me access to ‘real-time’ information regarding the myriad options available when deploying and designing wireless networks,” stated Brian Hubert, ACDX#52, Airheads MVP Guru. “The real-world feedback on how certain design options impact Airheads Community members’ networks is a very powerful tool. ACDX, specifically, helped me understand the process of gathering the business and network requirements, and building a solution. My customer interactions both improved in accuracy and effectiveness after studying for and completing the Aruba ACDX Certification.”

Ensuring network security and supporting mobile devices and applications, the Airheads Community is a vibrant forum for engineers who are focused on designing and implementing wireless LANs.

Airheads Community members have access to a wide variety of professional development opportunities. Through their expertise, participation and contributions, the Aruba Airheads MVP program recognizes members who have helped cultivate the Airheads Community.

Recently, the company signed a definitive agreement to acquire Avenda (News - Alert) Systems, Inc., a developer of network security solutions that securely connect users and their personal mobile devices to business network.

Both the companies are based in the US. Earlier, Avenda Systems had secured venture financing from OVP Venture Partners. The acquisition is expected to close in the second quarter of 2012, ending January 31, 2012.
