Mimeo expands worker mobility with the Aruba Network Instant virtualised controller access network
Mimeo, the online printing and distribution solutions company, has deployed Aruba’s Instant access points to expand its existing wireless infrastructure, connecting two additional manufacturing facilities to Mimeo’s corporate network.Mimeo recently extended its operations, adding two manufacturing facilities in Hayward, California and Cambridge, United Kingdom. The company is using Aruba Instant IAP-105s to provide wireless access for the two new facilities. In the UK facility, Mimeo runs its entire production facility on the wireless network, connecting a variety of both desktop and handheld devices, including PCs and Apple iPod touches and iPads, to the network. Mimeo also uses the Instant APs to provide a guest wireless network which is separated from the production facility network by a secured firewall.
In November of 2011, Aruba announced enhancements to the Aruba Instant family of products, including two new APs, the Aruba Instant IAP-134 and Instant IAP-135, featuring 3×3 MIMO and operating at a maximum throughput of 900Mbps. Mimeo is evaluating the new Instant APs for future expansion of its wireless network.
