Growing a business can truly be a technical challenge, particularly since small-mid size businesses (SMBs) with lean IT teams are often just trying to keep up with the demand for more services.

As business operations evolve (due to things like a global pandemic), new team members are added and companies make headway into emerging markets, more robust IT support is needed to bolster business expansion, productivity, and to gain a competitive edge. 

To keep a business running smoothly, everyone on the team needs to have fast, reliable connectivity to digital services and communication tools. That means IT teams need to have the resources and flexibility to back up their colleagues when networks are suffering from lag, downtime, or other issues. 

Simply put, they need to be able to do more with less.

Aruba has the technology to make it easy to deploy and scale robust business networks securely and quickly, without the need for extensive  IT resources. 

With Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP), IT teams can deploy networks and switches out of the box so no time is wasted getting up and running. Aruba’s CX switch family series, including the CX6200 and CX6300 stackable switches, streamline large-scale deployments and segmentation.

Aruba’s ZTP:

  • Automatically configures a new switch with custom predefined settings
  • Permits quick, plug-and-play deployment in a large-scale environment
  • Eliminates most of the manual labor involved in setup and provisioning

Multi-gigabit connectivity enables performance for fast Wi-Fi 6 because nothing interrupts a workflow like slow, laggy Wi-Fi. Aruba has multi-gigabit switches and Wi-Fi 6 access points to power the productivity needs of your business.

But businesses don’t just need fast Wi-Fi - they need to ensure that both their connections and data are secure.  Aruba’s access points and switches help keep your network, data, people, and customers safe with built-in enterprise-grade security features. 

The best part is that Aruba’s networking tools meet the needs of a wide range of businesses. For small-medium-sized businesses

with just a few employees in the office or working remotely, Aruba offers Wi-Fi 6 access points designed specifically for mid-density environments. 

For growing businesses that still need to bring a lot of workers into the office, but need to keep a tight budget, the 515 access point is designed to improve network speed and efficiency across a large number of devices. 

At the top of Aruba's Wi-Fi 6 access point line-up are the 530 and 550 series. The 530 is a great fit for small and medium-sized businesses that need more performance while the 550 offers Wi-Fi in a 4x4 configuration for extreme-density or bandwidth-heavy environments. 

Historically, growing companies that take full advantage of available technology can earn two times more revenue per employee,  have four times the revenue growth annually, and are almost three times more likely to create jobs, according to a small business research statistics by Semrush.

So don’t let your Wi-Fi networks hold your business back from reaching its full potential. Check out Aruba’s entire family of switches and access points to help your IT teams maximize their resources now.
