Aruba CTO says IoT is great fun to work on

Not everybody in business IT seems like they’re having a great time at their job, but Aruba CTO Partha Narasimhan is an exception. He sat down with Network World at the company’s 2018 Atmosphere conference in Las Vegas to talk IoT, onboarding and more.

Like company president Keerti Melkote, Narasimhan noted that Aruba’s experience in onboarding devices during the era of BYOD being an issue has stood it in good stead for IoT, but he said that the technical challenge is far greater.

IoT’s harder than BYOD ever was, because there’s a lot more heterogeneity in the devices that have to be onboarded to the network – at the worst of times, network managers generally only had to worry about iOS, Android and Blackberry devices, which could all be provisioned in relatively similar ways.
