It seems an alarmingly high number of wireless devices have returned to our campus this week. After at least of year of steadily increasing numbers, we are now seeing a roughly 40% increase since last December. At first I didn't believe what I was seeing and opened a case with the Aruba TAC to confirm reporting was accurate. Tied into this, we upgraded from 3.x to 126.96.36.199 earlier this month and I thought this could be related. Apparently not the case, everything we've looked at tells us that the numbers are accurate. I'm still looking a stats, but haven't been able to come up with anything yet.

We didn't see that kind of increase. What does the device distribution look like? Are you seeing a lot of Kindles, Nooks, iPads?
We also upgraded to 188.8.131.52 over the break, from 184.108.40.206.

I'm thinking the Christmas break didn't help your device count :)
Looking at Aruba's numbers over the last year we've seen probably a 60% increase of devices in the corporate network. Some of that is hiring, but it's not 1-1. Practically everyone at work is now carrying two devices, I show up with 3-4 devices every day. Count in wireless printers, game consoles, digital picture frames, etc. and you're going to get a ton of new devices. Our planning guides are recommending at every user now count for at least two devices.

It turns out to be a combination of things. For one, we are actually seeing an increase in devices of ~30%. Thanks to OS 6.x i can see that most of those are iPhones. My AMP server was reporting another 20% over that, which is a bug that even Airwave 7.4.6 couldn't resolve. We're told that Aruba OS 220.127.116.11 will fix the reporting.

I have noticed at least a 50% increase in the use of mobile devices on our wireless since Christmas/New Years break. The three primary devices, in order from greatest to least are Android based phones, iPhones and iPads. I have seen no real usage of Android based tablets here.
Location wise (for you statistic people LOL), we are CFCC in Wilmington, NC
