Aruba moving on up in enterprise WiFi

WLAN vendor Aruba has nearly doubled its market share since going public in March. Thanks to going public, customers are comfortable with Aruba's long-term viability, says Aruba founder Keerti Melkote. Aruba recently won a contract with Prudential Fox & Roach, the country's largest single-market real estate firm. It has landed several high-profile contracts, including a deal with the U.S. Air Force, Ohio State University and Microsoft.

Aruba reported in May that revenue increased to $34.7 million, up 30 percent quarter over quarter and up 65 percent from the previous year. It was the company's first break-even quarter since its inception in 2002.

However, Aruba has a long way to go before it catches up with heavyweight Cisco. According to research company Dell'Oro Group, Cisco's market share sits around 64 percent.
