SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN) today announced that in Forrester Research, Inc.’s The Forrester Wave™ for Wireless Local Area Network (LAN) Solutions for 2014, Aruba has been positioned in the Leaders category.

The Forrester WAVE™ for WLAN Solutions evaluates wireless LAN solutions using five, simple architectural characteristics: scalable, shared, simplified, standardized and secure, for the current offering criteria, and two other primary criteria categories: strategy and market presence. Of the ten vendor solutions included in the assessment, Aruba’s solution emerged as one of only two placed in the Leaders category.

In Forrester’s evaluation, the firm noted that the vendors in the Leaders category separated themselves from other vendors by “introducing wireless capabilities that can transform businesses and move wireless from a cost center to revenue generator” and specifically noted that “Aruba’s location-based capabilities can help those in hospitality improve the way they engage with customers.”

“We’re thrilled that Forrester has recognized what we consider to be Aruba’s leading mobility portfolio, innovative vision and strong market position,” said Ben Gibson, Chief Marketing Officer, Aruba Networks. “Our Mobility-Defined Networks are allowing customers to meet the needs of #GenMobile employees in a way that is cost-effective for their organizations.
