ProviNET Helps Ad Agency Gain Creative Freedom With an Upgraded Wireless Infrastructure

Aruba Instant Controller-less Access Points Deliver Pervasive Mobility for Growing Ad Agency

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Oct. 23, 2013 – Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), a leading provider of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, today announced that TRIS3CT, one of America’s leading independent advertising agencies, has selected Aruba’s wireless LAN (WLAN) infrastructure to advance creative collaboration and business efficiencies throughout its Chicago offices. Working with Aruba partner ProviNET Solutions, TRIS3CT replaced its existing wireless network with the Aruba Instant controller-less access points (APs).

TRIS3CT had outgrown the capacity of its legacy wireless network, and users frequently complained of connectivity problems. The agency needed a “corner-to-corner” wireless LAN with the coverage and performance to support Wi-Fi connections anywhere in the office. The new network, featuring Aruba Instant controller-less APs, allows TRIS3CT’s staff to roam freely throughout the agency during the creative process, working from any location without sacrificing speed or always-on connectivity.

“With more than 150 employees dependent upon streaming high-definition video and transferring large design files, we rely heavily on our network infrastructure,” said David Schaefer, Vice President of Information Technology, TRIS3CT. “Aruba helped simplify this infrastructure, resulting in dramatically reduced support calls related to wireless issues, and providing our creative staff with the freedom and flexibility they desire.”

TRIS3CT evaluated a number of Wi-Fi solutions, and found that Aruba’s performance, reliability and management simplicity, along with best-in-class support for Apple devices, placed its infrastructure ahead of the pack. The agency determined that Aruba was the right choice to support the myriad phones, tablets and multiple generations of MacBooks that its creative team uses every day.

“Aruba offers better support and more functionality for our corporate network environment, and requires less time, cost and effort to maintain than our previous solution,” said Mark Scott, Senior Systems Engineer, TRIS3CT. “Given the strong recommendation from our longtime network partner, ProviNET Solutions, the choice was easy to make.”

“As IT consultants, we have the opportunity to evaluate a lot of different solutions,” said Mark Nunnikhoven, Director of Client Relations, ProviNET Solutions. “We have always gone back to Aruba’s technology as the best option for our customers — it’s scalable, affordable, and feature-rich. Because we’ve had such great success with Aruba, we wanted TRIS3CT to consider it as an option. They had an opportunity to kick the tires, so to speak, and quickly determined that Aruba was exactly what they needed.”

Aruba Instant APs deliver enterprise-class WLAN capabilities in a highly scalable, centrally managed platform that is secure, reliable and ideal for mobile and distributed environments. The Aruba Instant APs provide TRIS3CT with the coverage and capacity needed to support increasing device densities as the agency continues to grow.

Tim Davis, IT Analyst, TRIS3CT, summed up the benefits this way: “The greatest thing about our Aruba Networks solution so far is that I don’t have to think about it anymore. It just works.”
