Aruba Networks is moving beyond the corporate office into the industrial park. The wireless LAN vendor revealed this week that its Mobile Edge WLAN devices are now certified to work with Polycom's SpectraLink NetLink 8000 series durable phones.

The long-battery-life handsets, which are dust-, shock- and water-resistant, are designed to be used in environments like warehouse and manufacturing facilities. Polycom said Aruba's gear meets its customer requirements for toll-quality voice, drop-free roaming, high availability and tight security even under often harsh physical conditions. The SpectraLink 802.11a/b/g phones also include a push-to-talk feature used by teams to communicate with multiple workers simultaneously.

Aruba's network software revision 2.5.4, shipping now, works with the Polycom handsets. Polycom acquired the handsets, also available now, as part of the its SpectraLink acquisition, which closed in March.
