FierceVoIP Announces Top Ten Leaders in Voice Over IP: Aruba Networks on Leading Edge of VoIP Technology

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - December 20, 2007) - Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), a global leader in user-centric networks and secure mobility solutions, today announced that it has been named a VoIP Leader by FierceVoIP, an honor that recognizes the top 10 companies on the cutting-edge of the constantly evolving VoIP industry. Winners are singled out for leading the industry as it expands beyond service providers and into the fields of enterprise and unified communications.

FierceVoIP is a bi-weekly email newsletter distributed by FierceMarkets that covers news and insights on the emerging VoIP industry, providing more than 35,000 subscribers a quick, authoritative briefing on the week's top VoIP stories and marketplace developments.

Aruba's user-centric networks securely deliver the enterprise network to users by integrating adaptive wireless LANs, identity-based security, remote access, and fixed mobile convergence solutions into a cohesive, high-performance system. Adaptive wireless LANs deliver follow-me connectivity to roaming users, support standard Wi-Fi clients -- such as Apple Macintosh and Intel Centrino -- and deliver toll-quality WPA2 encrypted voice and streaming video.

About Aruba Networks

Adaptive WLANs deliver high-performance, follow-me connectivity so users are always within reach of mission-critical information.
