Aruba Networks announced the launch of its 802.11n-based access points and controller modules that will provide all wireless speed in the 100 Mbps and above range.
The new Aruba system, to ship immediately, however, supports four concurrent forwarding architectures to allow a mix of distributed, centralized, split tunneling and mesh traffic-forwarding decisions based on application and traffic type.
The 802.11n standard awaits ratification from the IEEE, which is not expected until end of 2008 (InformationWeek). With 802.11n networking devices, vendors are touting best-ever wireless experience for enterprises.
Several other networking gear makers have also made 802.11n equipment available. But the big question is, with enterprises having sufficiently invested into Wi-Fi already, will it be worth the switch?
