SHREWSBURY, N.J., July 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterCloud Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:ICLD), ) a leading provider of cloud networking orchestration and automation solutions and services, is pleased to announce the continued commercial success of its Aruba Networks based "Airwave as a Service", cloud managed WiFi solution. Russell Reynolds Associates, a global leader in assessment, recruitment and succession planning, has selected "Airwave as a Service" to deploy and manage their global wireless infrastructure. This platform will allow Russell Reynolds to minimize upfront capital expenditure, while creating an agile architecture that leverages Aruba's technology in InterCloud's secure cloud network. Russell Reynolds will have the ability to quickly add offices and access points, manage the user experience, and have the ability to make changes anywhere, any time.
"After a thorough evaluation of competing technologies, it was clear to us that InterCloud's Airwave as a Service and Aruba's technology were the perfect pairing to give Russell Reynolds a next generation WiFi solution that allows for the best user experience, incredible management functionality, and lower total cost of ownership," said Ron Ongley, Global Head of Technology Infrastructure, Russell Reynolds Associates.
Mark Munro, InterCloud CEO added, "We are proud to announce that Russell Reynolds Associates has become a strategic customer. We released news about the proof of concept (POC) for "Airwave as a Service" less than two months ago and we are now moving forward with it in production. It is our belief that our OpenStack based IaaS offering for this cloud managed WiFi service has tremendous competitive advantages over traditional hardware based WiFi solutions. This is a replicable solution that can now be offered to all Aruba Networks customers worldwide. Typically these sales will create both upfront and monthly recurring revenue over multiyear agreements. In this case the life of the agreement will produce over three hundred thousand dollars in total revenue as designed. We look forward to the many new opportunities we believe will come to InterCloud as the enterprise market learns about this cloud management and orchestration product."
