Aruba To Speed Up User Authentication

Aruba Networks is set to release some new gear to greatly increase the speed of authentication for large wireless networks. The technology moves authentication away from a central server into the hardware of the network controller, offering up to 1000 authentications a second with EAP. Other announced improvements include features to allow for WLAN authentication in remote offices even if the WAN link to the authentication server is down. Aruba seems to be ready to get into 802.11n, but unlike companies like Linksys, they are waiting for the final ratified standard before jumping in.
