Ideal for connecting IoT and user devices
Extend your edge with Aruba Ruggedized Solutions
A ruggedized network keeps devices and users connected and productive in harsh environments without compromising security, performance, or operational simplicity.
Aruba products that extend your edge
Harsh indoor and outdoor environments create IT challenges
Purpose-built ruggedized products designed to address tough environments often operate in silos—lacking the security, management tools, and visibility that IT teams need for operational efficiency.
- Traditional network equipment designed to operate in extreme temperatures, outdoors, or in hazardous environments often has limited management capabilities, requiring highly manual operations with on-site IT.
- IoT devices like security cameras, PoE lighting, and sensors bring safety and OT benefits, but they increase security risks because they are often deployed beyond controlled office spaces.
- To optimize user experience and support an ever-increasing number and range IoT devices, the ruggedized network must deliver the latest advances in Wi-Fi, wired connectivity, and cloud-based services. This includes support for high power PoE, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), 802.15.4/Zigbee, and USB extensions.
