Originally a wireless company, Aruba Networks
has become synonymous with customer care and innovation. It’s this dedication to customers and driving wireless forward that pushed Aruba to the top of their industry last year.
In episode 169, Keri speaks with Aruba Partner Business Manager, Dave Moretta
Aruba Networks: The Ingram Micro Distributor of the Year
Although Aruba was awarded the Distributor of the Year
in 2020, it’s been years in the making.
After the wireless company was acquired by HP in 2015, Aruba was able to offer a fuller line of wireless solutions. Having a more robust catalog allowed them to focus more on the customer. And that’s what they’ve done.
Dave shares an integral company value for Aruba: Customer first, customer last. With their dedication to cutting-edge solutions and especially to their customers, Aruba has been able to sell over one million units of Wi-Fi 6.
Already, Aruba has surpassed the goals they had set for this time. For the rest of 2021, Dave explains that new products will be entering the arena, like Aruba ESP, an industry-leading AI for network security.
He also urges Ingram Micro partners to look into Aruba Go, a new community offering training, exclusive demos, engineering support discounts and more.
