Aruba @ Wi-Fi Mobility Symposium



We are happy to participate in this year's Wi-Fi Mobility Symposium. Event takes place in San Jose, CA and it is free to attend in person if you want to stop by and join the conversation. More details about the event can be found here:



In case you cannot attend in person and get a chance to watch the live stream on our community homepage or at http://www.techfieldday.com, you can submit your comments & questions live using this discussion board. Feel free to submit them using twitter hashtag #WMS12 as well, directed at @ArubaNetworks and @TechFieldDay


Assuming no last minute changes, Aruba's Product Manager for Network Services Carlos Gomez (aka. carlos) will be joining the event to present on "Mobile Devices & BYOD" topic. From Aruba's Office of the CTO, Peter Thornycroft (aka. pthornycroft) will be there to answer questions on "Hotspot 2.0" and "Gigabit Wi-Fi" (802.11ac/ad). 


Although nothing beats live TV ;) we realize that you all have busy schedules and may not be able to tune in. For those who may not be able to view the live stream, folks from TechFieldDay will be making the video recordings available to us shortly after the event. 


Looking forward to chatting with you all on the day of the event!

Carlos is starting with the basics - and is trying to answer "What is BYOD?" Well it means different things for different IT organizations, in different verticals... what's your BYOD story?

Re: Aruba @ Wi-Fi Mobility Symposium

Understanding how to enroll mobile devices over the air is key - no IT organization wants to manually touch each iPhone and Android out there... Apple is making it really easy for infrastructure vendors like Aruba. Screenshot from Carlos's preso below. 


How do you enroll mobile devices to your network - what's your plan, what type of questions you have? Submit them here.
