Mimeo Expands Worker Mobility With The Aruba Networks Instant™ Virtualized-Controller Access Network

Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN) today announced that Mimeo, the online printing and distribution solutions company, has deployed Aruba’s Instant™ access points to expand its existing wireless infrastructure, connecting two additional manufacturing facilities to Mimeo’s corporate network.

Mimeo recently extended its operations, adding two manufacturing facilities in Hayward, Calif. and Cambridge, United Kingdom, to its existing locations in Newark, N.J. and Memphis, Tenn. The company is using Aruba Instant IAP-105s to provide wireless access for the two new facilities. In the U.K. facility, Mimeo runs its entire production facility on the wireless network, connecting a variety of both desktop and handheld devices, including PCs and Apple iPod touches and iPads, to the network.

For Shawn Winters, Director of IT Operations at Mimeo, cost and simplicity were the two critical factors he considered in selecting a wireless solution to bring these two locations online. “The Aruba Instant APs made it cost effective for me to bring these two facilities online with all of the features required to mimic our existing wireless infrastructure,” said Winters. “Beyond the cost, the most important criteria for me were security, simplicity and ease of management and the Aruba Instant IAPs delivered. I was able to train non-network experts on setting up a new network with the Instant IAPs in just five minutes.”

Winters was so impressed by the IAPs’ pervasive coverage, that he decided to run Mimeo’s entire production facility in the U.K. on the Aruba Instant wireless network.

“The coverage is just phenomenal,” said Winters. “In the U.K., we have three separate building units next to each other, each comprising about 30,000 square feet, and we’ve been able to use one or two Aruba Instant APs to cover the entire facility. I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the signal coverage.”

Mimeo also uses the Instant APs to provide a guest wireless network which is separated from the production facility network by a secured firewall, something Winters believed would not be possible without the Aruba solution.
