The metaverse is a complex concept to understand but promises to be a huge opportunity for Partners.

Although it is continually evolving, the metaverse is an enhanced internet experience, able to be accessed by a number of unique virtual and Extended Reality (XR) technologies.

No matter what the industry or application, a solid infrastructure is key – how devices plug-in and deliver seamless, real-time collaboration experiences.

Partner with Aruba and Ingram Micro to fully realise the opportunities and benefits on offer.

Because the network infrastructure is your doorway to accessing greater profits


The opportunity is limited only by imagination

Help customers close the perceived gaps between digital and physical realities. Virtual versions of people, objects and landscapes allow us to explore brand new environments, problem-solve and develop ideas through virtual experiences.

According to research from Emergen Research last year, the metaverse was valued at $47.69 billion in 2020 and would reach $829 billion by 2028

Aruba creates the bridge between the digital and physical world


Imagine being able to walk through and interact with 3D, anatomically accurate models – allowing medical practitioners to explore and collaborate no matter where they are. The can problem solve complex surgical procedures even before the patients has even lay down on the operating table. XR creates virtual experiences.


From rapid product development, training, process & efficiency improvements, maintenance and repair – XR creates new levels of collaboration, bringing engineers and specialists together. Virtual environments can help teams explore and develop ideas, test processes and safety, even accelerate go-to-market times, while minimising the risk and cost.


VR/XR holds holds the potential to transform education and training. Virtual environments create immersive, low-risk spaces that allow students to expand their knowledge through first-hand experience. They can master skills and techniques, focus on tasks in a simulated XR environment and even break down the barriers of distance learning.
