Hunt Valley, MD – May 30, 2014 – Data Networks today announced it has been authorized on the Western States Contracting Alliance National Association of State Procurement Officials (WSCA-NASPO) Cooperative Purchasing Organization contract held by Aruba Networks enabling them to provide expanded Wireless LAN (WLAN) and mobile security options to State, Local and Education (SLED) customers.
