Unstrung - Aruba Plots Imminent IPO - Wireless Networking News Analysis

"Enterprise wireless LAN player Aruba Wireless Networks is firming up its plans to go public. The firm's new president and CEO Dominic Orr says that Aruba could now IPO 'within months.'
Aruba is consistently ranked amoung the top-selling enterprise wireless LAN vendors, generally number three to Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO - message board) and Symbol Technologies Inc. (NYSE: SBL - message board)'s respective first and second places. (See Cisco's WLAN Stranglehold.) Former Alteon head Orr says that going public would help Aruba with 'branding' and name recognition so that the company wouldn't have to prove itself when going after big deals."
