|ARUBA NETWORKS AND OKI TO JOIN FORCES IN NETWORK SECURITY|
ITU Telecom World -- Hong Kong, -- Aruba Networks, the Mobile Edge Company, and Oki Electric Industry Co., Ltd. today announced that they will join efforts to deliver network security for Next-Generation Networks (NGN). The relationship leverages Aruba's strengths in secure mobility technology and OKI's strengths in QoS (Quality of Service) control technology for VoIP. The companies will work together to develop new solutions, perform systems integration and conduct joint marketing activities globally.
OKI will incorporate Aruba's wireless security technologies into AP@PLAT, OKI's network infrastructure for "Ubiquitous Services." The two companies will develop highly secure and reliable products in several areas including small- to large-scale secure wireless LAN (WLAN), Voice over Wireless LAN (VoWLAN) and Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) solutions. OKI and Aruba will conduct joint marketing and develop channels, initially in Japan and China, and ultimately around the globe.
OKI is considered the pioneer in VoIP in Japan, working in the field since the early 1990s. The company launched the first VoIP system in Japan in 1996, and in 2002, provided one of the world's largest carrier-grade soft switches supporting five million subscribers. The company has also been developing access points for VoWLAN to connect with various Wi-Fi phones provided from Japanese telecom carriers.
"Working with Aruba, the leader in secure mobility, we intend to provide highly secure Ubiquitous Service products and solutions. In the Next-Generation Networks, quadruple service -- including voice, video, data and wireless services -- will be provided over IP. Technologies to seamlessly control quality from end-to-end are important in FMC," said Katsumasa Shinozuka, president and CEO of Oki Electric Industry. "In collaboration with Aruba, OKI will offer Ubiquitous Security solutions that will empower individuals to communicate beyond time and space; that is whenever, wherever, with whatever."
In a world of mobility, security must be implemented using context-aware technology. Context-aware technology can take into account a variety of factors and conditions including who the user is, where they are, what type of device and application they are using, what resources they are accessing and more. Aruba's mobility controllers are equipped with a stateful policy enforcement firewall, which allows global security rules and role-based access control to be configured and managed from a single central location. These policies can be applied to clients on both wired and wireless networks, providing seamless ubiquitous security.
"Both OKI and Aruba have extensive experience in environments with some of the most rigorous security requirements imaginable, including government, military and financial institutions. These customers help us push the envelope of innovation," said Dominic Orr, CEO of Aruba Networks. "With OKI, we are excited to be jointly exploring opportunities for enhanced interoperability and joint development in the areas of WLAN security, voice-over-wireless and enterprise fixed-mobile convergence applications. The ultimate benefit to our customers will be ubiquitous security and ubiquitous network services."
Aruba and OKI are both leaders in communications technologies. Aruba recently announced a five-phase plan to bring FMC to enterprises, allowing secure, seamless handover of communications between Wi-Fi and cellular networks. Enterprise FMC will deliver benefits including greater mobility, user convenience, increased productivity and cost savings. Aruba will work with telecommunications leaders such as OKI to implement its FMC strategy.
