KMH Group introduces Aruba Wireless Network technology boasting 100% network security

The fear of unauthorised intrusion especially is so great that some prefer the perceived greater security they erroneously believe exists on wired LANs.

Happily, the dilemma has now ended, for Maidstone based KMH Group now sells, installs and supports the new generation wireless local area network range of ARUBA products. Initially dealing with wired networks, BS EN ISO 9002 accredited KMH Group has evolved into the UK's leading installer of wireless networks using the world beating technology deployed in the ARUBA product range. Although the principle of wireless LANs is not new, ARUBA has for the first time succeeded in integrating into one product, all of the technology that previously has only been available in a series of products from different manufacturers. In doing this Aruba has managed to ensure 100% security, compatibility, scalability and functionality in one simple package.

Alan Smith, the Sales Manager at KMH Group takes up the story. One of the big problems with wireless networks to date has been how to create full coverage and mobility whilst delivering total security. A further problem for IT managers with complex networks is how to manage large numbers of Wireless Access Points and the associated software. ARUBA have sought to tackle all these issues head on with a product set that covers analysis of initial survey information and client data, thin Access Points which can also be deployed as Air Monitors, centralised Wireless Switches and a family of software tools. The integration of voice and data services is encompassed by a Quality of Service for Voice over IP (VOIP) telephony. We start by feeding the clients building and network parameters into the ARUBA RF planning tool which selects the appropriate positions for the Access Points and Air Monitors. Once these positions have been established, fine tuning can be carried out to allow for known architectural intrusions or variations in traffic peculiar to key areas of the building. The Aruba switches manage network security and perform ongoing maintenance such as self-healing and load balancing. Key weapons in the ARUBA arsenal include Locking the Air, Intrusion Detection and Lockdown as well as Remote Rogue destruction. Continuous automatic monitoring ensures instant availability of the Key Weapons whenever they might be needed. The equipment learns and remembers individual signatures to prevent any future access attempts by the same rogue elements.
