Aruba Networks reports record quarterly revenues

For the third quarter ending April 30, Aruba reported record quarterly revenues of $69 million, a jump of 51 per cent compared to the same quarter last year.

Wireless LAN vendor Aruba Networks reported another quarterly loss, slightly smaller than a year ago, but its third-quarter adjusted earnings were slightly better than analysts expected, and it set a record for revenues.

For the third quarter ending April 30, Aruba reported record quarterly revenues of $69 million, a jump of 51% compared to the same quarter last year. The GAAP quarterly net loss was $5.3 million, or 6 cents per share, compared to a net loss of $5.8 million, or 7 cents per share, a year ago. The quarterly revenues were up sequentially 10% compared to Q2.

Excluding a range of items, the company actually earned 8 cents a share. Analysts were expecting earnings of 7 cents per share, excluding various items on revenues of $65.5 million, according to a Reuters report based on data from Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S

The revenues were up as the company added 700 new customers, to a total of over 10,000. The company said that adoption of high-throughput 802.11n equipment is accelerating and that customers continue to "divert budgets from wired LANs toward wireless solutions."

The company just announced a deal to acquire an outdoor Wi-Fi mesh vendor, China-based Azalea Networks, for $40 million

Aruba’s stock price has been steadily rising over the past year from a low of $4.91 a year ago, to a recent high on April 14 of $13.89. It closed Wednesday at $11.57.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
