Alaska Communications Leads in Wireless Network Management, Now a Silver Partner with Aruba


Partnership offers new IT possibilities to Alaska businesses

ANCHORAGE, Alaska--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Alaska businesses now have access to improved secure wireless and worker mobility through Alaska Communications' (NASDAQ: ALSK) Silver Partner status with Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company.

Alaska Communications, the state's leading broadband and IT solutions provider, earned Silver Partner status through its track record of designing and implementing some of the state's best wireless network solutions using Aruba products.

Aruba specializes in wireless access points and network management. Its AirWave network operations system offers real-time monitoring, proactive alerts, historical reporting and efficient troubleshooting, all through a centralized user interface.

"We're thrilled to be a Silver Partner with Aruba," Alaska Communications Vice President of Managed Services Chris Reaburn said. "Aruba is a global leader in networking solutions and brings great value to Alaska businesses. The Aruba solutions we manage for clients provide them granular visibility into their wireless networks enabling us to monitor user behavior, proactively troubleshoot application issues and plan for wireless network capacity before it becomes a problem. We're excited to be the local experts for designing, implementing and supporting the wireless networks that are enabling the digital workplace."

Alaska Communications won the bid to provide a secure wireless solution supporting the curriculum-based education program at the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Professional Military Education Center (PME). The PME Center currently relies on Aruba when training noncommissioned officers focused on their professional development and career progression.

"Elmendorf's PME Center showcases the strengths of Aruba," said Reaburn. "We were able to design them a single solution that is secure, scalable and provides uninterrupted connectivity within the school."
