Why Aruba and Zebra?
When you team with ScanSource, Aruba, and Zebra, you and your customers realize the practical benefits right away. Aruba improves Wi-Fi for eligible Zebra devices with better roaming capabilities and reduced dropouts. Zebra is able to use auto-detection for faster onboarding, as well as automated processes for enhanced security. Lastly, enhanced validation reference designs are available for both voice and data applications, while direct support escalation is even more accessible.
There’s a divide between data quality and its origin, I.e., where that data comes from and how accurate it is. Aruba and Zebra technologies partner to bridge that divide through technology integration, validated reference designs, direct support escalation, and joint integration.
Zebra’s rugged, data-capture technology pairs perfectly with Aruba’s secure networking capabilities in the mobility, voice roaming, LAN switching, and cybersecurity areas. Together, they can create solutions to locate, collect, and deliver Internet-of-Things (IoT) data where it’s needed for healthcare, industrial, government, and other applications.
With IoT delivering a raceway of data and context to data-mining engines, workers can gain insights to manage inventory, optimize operations, and improve user experiences. IoT data varies by industry, but can lead to information on processes, users, customers, applications, and environments.
Quality information leads to high-value insights, so validation is especially important to this field. On the other hand, connected devices can easily be undermined without robust cybersecurity. Aruba and Zebra’s pairing provides solutions for these challenges in data accuracy and IoT network security.
