US computer giant Hewlett-Packard said Monday it was buying mobile networking group Aruba Networks for some $2.7 billion. The tie-up between the two California firms gives HP a broader array of offerings for corporate wireless networking as it prepares to split into two separate companies. "Enterprises are facing a mobile-first world and are looking for solutions that help them transition legacy investments to the new style of IT," said Meg Whitman, chairman and chief executive of HP. Aruba will become part of HP Networking, the enterprise services group to be created by the split along with a unit focused on computers and printers.
