Abu Dhabi/HPE announces innovations for SMBs and partnership with temple in Abu Dhabi

HPE has announced new product innovations to aid small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), as well as revealing that the company has been chosen to partner with BAPS Hindu Mandir Abu Dhabi

HPE’s innovations include the Aruba Instant On AP22D, a Wi-Fi 6 access point, and the Aruba Instant On 1960 stackable switch with 2.5GB port capacity, both designed to optimize network performance for employees and provide a smoother experience for customers, guests and IoT devices.

These new technologies will be available in Q4 of HPE’s 2023 fiscal year. 

Amol Mitra, vice president and general manager, HPE Aruba Networking global small and medium business, said: “HPE Aruba Networking simplifies network deployment and management via an intuitive mobile app that delivers a simple, smart and secure offering for SMB customers.” 

Moreover, HPE has also been chosen to create a one-of-a-kind digital experience for visitors of the first traditional Hindu stone temple to be built in the Middle East, named BAPS Hindu Mandir Abu Dhabi. 

The BAPS Hindu Mandir Abu Dhabi will use the HPE Aruba Networking Central cloud network management platform to simplify operations, leveraging artificial intelligence for IT operations to reduce manual tasks when managing the HPE Aruba Networking Wi-Fi 6E access points. 

As part of its unique digital experience, the temple has worked with HPE to create an app that will provide virtual reality tours of temples and other information about the BAPS Hindu Mandir Abu Dhabi, to enhance the cultural and spiritual experiences of its visitors. The temple is planned to be completed in February 2024.

Zeeshan Hadi, country manager Aruba UAE & Africa, HPE Aruba Networking, said: “We are honored to support the BAPS Hindu Mandir Abu Dhabi realizing their vision of an oasis of harmony in the UAE, promoting mutual respect and peaceful coexistence in the region.

“Inclusion, appreciation and connectedness – values we share with BAPS Hindu Mandir – were key in envisioning the experience the BAPS Hindu Mandir Abu Dhabi aims to offer visitors, with HPE Aruba Networking technology as an enabler to bring people together, strengthen human connections and create better mutual understanding.”
