ARUBA NETWORKS POSITIONED IN LEADER QUADRANT IN NEW REPORT ON WIRELESS LAN INFRASTRUCTURE
Aruba Networks, a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure for secure mobility, has been positioned in the Leader's quadrant of Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Wireless LAN Infrastructure, 2005: Leaders and Challengers report.
"Being recognised in the leader quadrant by Gartner is truly gratifying," said Don LeBeau, president and CEO of Aruba Networks. "According to Gartner, a leader is defined not only by its vision but by the ability to execute on that vision. We believe Aruba 's vision to enable user mobility across the enterprise is driven by a fast growing base of customers who understand the profound impact mobility has on their business."
Aruba is adding over 100 customers per quarter and is experiencing triple-digit annual growth rates. The company currently ships over 7,000 access points and hundreds of mobility systems each month to enterprise customers around the world. Aruba has amassed over 750 enterprise customers since shipping its first product in July of 2003.
According to Gartner, leaders are currently doing well in the marketplace, have great prospects for the future and perform well on Gartner's selection criteria.

Based on a wide range of criteria, vendors are evaluated on:
* A centralised WLAN product offering
