“Since the HP/Aruba acquisition was announced we have had a surge of inquiries from Aruba partners and customers,” said David Greene, senior vice president, chief marketing officer, Aerohive Networks.

Last week, HP announced its acquisition of Aruba Networks, a leading WLAN vendor in the world, for $2.7 billion. This is HP’s third transaction to add a wireless networking solution to its portfolio.

Post-acquisition, Aruba’s existing product portfolios and potentially related future R&D may be impacted by other HP product lines and investments, said

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Aerohive Networks said the special offer is designed to provide an affordable enterprise solution alternative for Aruba customers who may have concerns about the future.
