UAE-based fuel service station operator Emarat has selected Aruba technology in order to optimize its wireless, wired, and wide area network (WAN) infrastructure.

Further, it has introduced automated, cloud-native Edge computing for an all-round enhanced user experience.

Emarat has been servicing clients in the UAE for four decades, with an emphasis on providing outstanding customer service and motivating staff to be more productive.

The company has struck an agreement to deliver enhanced interior and outdoor Wi-Fi coverage as part of its digital transformation objectives. Aruba’s solutions will bring seamless connectivity and simplified operations through best-of-breed technology.

Emarat, which operates in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, will use Aruba’s SD-Branch solution. “SD-Branch brings together best-in-class, software-defined networking infrastructure and unified management capabilities such as assurance, orchestration, and security, to optimize performance across wireless, wired, and WAN architectures and minimize operational costs,” as per the reports.

The company will leverage the power of Aruba’s ESP (Edge Services Platform), the industry’s first cloud-native solution for automating, unifying, and securing the Edge, all driven by advanced AI that proactively addresses network issues before they lead to business impact.

Furthermore, Emarat will also implement access switches, indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi 6 access points, branch gateways, and Aruba’s security platform, all of which will be managed by Aruba Central from a single console.

Aruba’s partner Mideast Data Systems will deploy the solution across facilities. Emarat will be able to effortlessly oversee a high-performance Wi-Fi 6 network that is ATEX-compliant for hazardous environments through a single centralized management console.

According to the statement, “Software-defined branch connectivity will transform LTE-based connection experiences, allowing secured access for guests, comprehensive visibility, granular control, and automated policy enforcement. The solution will seamlessly integrate with various initiatives of Emarat in the near future.”
