Texas A&M University advances engineering education with complex built on Aruba solutions

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company (NYSE: HPE), has announced that Texas A&M University (TAMU) College of Engineering has completed a full-scale expansion and modernization of its Zachry Engineering Education Complex using Aruba wired, wireless, security and location services solutions, to create an innovative, high-tech learning environment for undergraduate engineering education, the company said.

The unique complex, which is the largest on campus, is part of TAMU College of Engineering´s 25 by 25 initiative to support 25,000 engineering students by 2025 in response to the country´s need for more engineers.

The TAMU College of Engineering IT team conducted formal Proof of Concept tests, but Pierson noted that much of the technology they needed to implement at the opening of the complex in late August wasn´t available two or three years ago when they began the planning process. Although the IT team built several prototype rooms on campus, a key factor in their decision to partner with Aruba was a shared vision for what the technology should look like, how it should perform and most importantly, how it could adapt over time.

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, is a provider of next-generation networking solutions for enterprises of all sizes worldwide. The company delivers IT solutions that empower organizations to serve the latest generation of mobile-savvy users who rely on cloud-based business apps for every aspect of their work and personal lives.
