Aruba Wi-Fi 6, Security and Switching Solutions Help Prepare Students for the Global Workforce

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company (NYSE: HPE), has announced that Mitchell Technical Institute (MTI) of South Dakota, a technology institute preparing students for the global workforce, has chosen an Aruba network infrastructure to enable modern, collaboration-based experiences and build upon its innovative culture for students and faculty, the company said.

Recognized by Forbes for its contributions toward making Mitchell, South Dakota an elite “Smart City,” MTI has served as a regional provider of training the global workforce for over 50 years. MTI is helping to transform its area´s traditional, agricultural economy into a center for information communications technology. To that end, the institution knew that it needed to transform its own network infrastructure to meet the growing expectations of students and faculty and to continue its reputation as an education innovator.

A key driver for MTI´s network transformation was the need for high-performing, reliable Wi-Fi to enable classroom applications and software-based learning programs that eliminate pen and paper and afford student mobility. In addition, the institution sought a solution that could be easily integrated with its Microsoft Teams and Intune systems, and could segment and secure devices on the wireless and wired network — be they student-owned mobile devices, the school´s security cameras and HVAC systems, or other IoT devices that MTI might want to deploy.

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, is a provider of secure, intelligent networks that enable customers to thrive and deliver amazing digital experiences in the mobile, IoT and cloud era. We are changing the rules of networking to make it simple for IT and organizations to bridge the physical and digital worlds at the Edge.
