Today, more and more organizations are trying to harness 5G & Wi-Fi 6 technologies for seamless connections without sacrificing the quality of service. Recently, HPE Aruba has launched a new roaming service called Aruba Air Pass that enables cellular subscribers to securely and automatically roam onto participating Aruba enterprise Wi-Fi networks. Aruba Air Pass is considered to be the industry’s first roaming & onboarding solution, specifically designed to unify enterprise and mobile network experiences.
Air Pass helps customers to leverage their existing enterprise Wi-Fi infrastructure as a cost-effective alternative to deploy indoor small cells or distributed antenna systems. This will further help enterprise IT teams accelerate their adoption of 5G with an economical and seamless solution that can improve performance and user experience inside the enterprise. With the help of Air Pass, global telcos are now able to expand their footprint to potentially include the nearly 20 billion square feet served by Aruba Air Pass-ready infrastructure worldwide.
According to Jeff Lipton, vice president of Strategy and Corporate Development at Aruba, HPE, “The combination of Aruba Air Pass with Aruba Air Slice gives telcos the ability to extend the reach of their 5G networks into the enterprise while economically improving the overall end-user experience". “Devices that associate with an enterprise network using Aruba Air Pass may then use their Wi-Fi connections to access applications and services, such as making and receiving calls and text messages, based on their roles and permissions", Lipton further stated.
