KPMG Netherlands Counts on Aruba for Network Rightsizing
As one of the largest professional services firms in the world, KPMG depends upon digitally-connected employees to deliver timely and effective solutions to clients. Their challenges are they need to reduce Ethernet costs for new 65,000 square meter headquarters near Amsterdam, provide high-reliability pervasive WLAN connectivity to increase productivity, centrally manage enterprise WLAN and secure voice over wireless support. They chose Aruba Networks to overcome these challenges. They have implemented Aruba 6000 Chassis, 3600 Wi-Fi switches, 125 802.11a/b/g/n Access Points (APs), Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF) and wireless intrusion prevention applications. The results of implementing the Aruba Networks were reduced annual network costs by an estimated $760,000, delivered high performance mobile connectivity and saved more than $2,000,000 in network build-out costs for new headquarters.
