ARUBA GAINS MARKET SHARE AND SOLIDIFIES POSITION AS THE WORLD’S SECOND LARGEST ENTERPRISE WIRELESS LAN SUPPLIER

Sunnyvale, CA, September 10, 2007 - Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), a global leader in user-centric networks and secure mobility solutions, today announced that its share of the enterprise wireless LAN market has risen to greater than 10% in the second quarter of 2007 from roughly 5% in the same period of 2005. The market data are based on a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, and include sales of Aruba products by Alcatel-Lucent. During the same period Motorola’s Symbol unit lost market share, and Aruba displaced Motorola as the world’s second largest enterprise wireless LAN supplier.

Aruba’s user-centric networks integrate adaptive wireless LANs, identity-based security, and application continuity services into a cohesive, high-performance system that securely delivers the enterprise network to users, wherever they work or roam. By extending the enterprise to reach all users without compromising security or convenience, Aruba has redefined mobility with respect to where and how people work.

“Aruba has been a leading innovator in the wireless LAN market, and we have been rewarded with strong growth in our customer base, revenue, and market share,” said Keerti Melkote, Aruba’s co-founder and head of products and partnerships. “It is clear that the enterprise wireless LAN market is becoming a two horse race as we continue to gain market share at the expense of incumbents and struggling small suppliers.”

With regard to the lawsuit filed by Motorola on the eve of Aruba’s end-of-quarter results, during which the company announced a significant increase in revenue, Melkote stated, “We do not believe that we infringe Motorola’s patents, and we intend to vigorously defend ourselves against the claims when we have our day in court. We also look forward to continuing to compete successfully against Motorola in the market.”

Aruba is a member of a coalition including Cisco, Intel, Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, eBay, and Symantec, among others, supporting The Patent Reform Act of 2007, which passed the House on September 7 by a vote of 220-175. The Act aims to overhaul the U.S. patent system, which the coalition believes is overburdened with applications for trivial inventions and patent litigation intended to prevent competition and reap windfall profits.

About Aruba Networks
Aruba securely delivers the enterprise network to users, wherever they work or roam, with user-centric networks that significantly expand the reach of traditional port-centric networks. User-centric networks integrate adaptive WLANs, identity-based security, and application continuity services into a cohesive, high-performance system that can be easily deployed as an overlay on top of existing network infrastructure. Adaptive WLANs deliver high-performance, follow-me connectivity so users are always within reach of mission-critical information. Identity-based security associates access policies with users, not ports, to enable follow-me security that is enforced regardless of access method or location. Application continuity services enable follow-me applications that can be seamlessly accessed across WLAN and cellular networks. The cost, convenience, and security benefits of user-centric networks are fundamentally changing how and where we work. Listed on the NASDAQ and Russell 2000® Index, Aruba is based in Sunnyvale, California, and has operations throughout the Americas, Europe, Middle East, and Asia Pacific regions.
