Copenhagen implements wireless network of Aruba Networks

Telecom Lead Europe: Aruba Networks announced that the
Government of the City of Copenhagen in Denmark has deployed a wireless network
based on Aruba’s Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture.


The deployment at Koncern Service will help the company
deliver wireless and remote connectivity to its employees.


Koncern Service is a subsidiary of Kobenhavns Kommune
that provides a range of services to the city government of Copenhagen to
enable it to be a modern public corporation offering quality services to the
population of Scandinavia’s largest city.


Kobenhavns Kommune is one of the many city and regional
governments across Scandinavia that has recognised that a solution designed for
mobility can offer much more than a traditional port-centric approach to access
networking,” said Andreas Ferm, regional director, Nordic and Baltic, for


Koncern Service has built a wireless network that exceeds
one thousand 802.11n access points extending its service to most of its sites
across the city including the City Hall, libraries, offices and care centres,
and also to several hundred remote offices and users.


Copenhagen has deployed multiple Aruba 3400 and 6000
series mobility controllers, supporting more than 1,000 access points (AP)
throughout the city.


Ninety percent of the access points deployed support
802.11n. The next phase of the project will include deployment of 300 more APs
and the complete migration of all access points to 802.11n. In addition, the
city has begun a pilot deployment of Aruba’s Remote Access Points (RAPs) and
the Aruba Virtual Intranet Access (VIA) Agent to its remote workers.


Recently, Aruba Networks launched a new smartphone- and tablet-based point-of-sale (PoS)
solution, to support the retail migration from static to mobile PoS.
