Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN), a global leader in 802.11n wireless LANs and secure mobility solutions, today announced that its enterprise wireless LAN market share increased from calendar 3 Q 2009 to 4 Q 2009 according to market research firm Dell'Oro Group's justreleased "Fourth Quarter 2009 Wireless LAN Report." Including both branded and OEM shipments Aruba's total enterprise revenue share rose to 12.4%, dependent access point shipment share grew to 12%, and controller unit share jumped 4.3% to reach 11.4%. The solid results again positioned Aruba as one of the top two enterprise wireless LAN vendors.

During its most recent fiscal quarter Aruba saw strong demand across a broad range of industries and geographies, driving record yearoveryear and sequentially revenue. The adoption of 802.11n continued to be both a catalyst for growth and an enabler of Aruba's network rightsizing and Virtual Branch Networking (VBN) initiatives. Both initiatives contributed to the company's strong quarterly growth, including the addition of more than 700 new customers during the quarter, a record for the company.

"Enterprise customers today are focused on reducing operating expenses and enhancing workforce productivity, and our market share growth validates that we address both areas head on," said Dominic Orr, Aruba's President and CEO. "Aruba's rightsizing and VBN solutions target both capital and operating expenses, and help distributed enterprises become more productive without compromising security or easeofuse."

Network rightsizing and VBN reduce operating expenses and enhance workforce productivity in three ways:

- Replacing expensive wired LANs in favor of mobilityenhancing, high capacity wireless LANs;
- Lowering real estate footprints by enabling largescale telework programs;
- Reducing the cost and complexity of branch office networking.
