HP has introduced a comprehensive edge-to-core networking portfolio that is aimed at delivering a superior alternative to the marketplace in terms of technology, energy efficiency and total cost of ownership. The Networking portfolio from HP combines the best of HP ProCurve and 3Com to provide an advanced network fabric that is up to twice as fast with half the energy use, and at a 65 percent lower total cost of ownership. Through the same portfolio, HP’s newest internal data centre will completely run on HP networking products which further demonstrates the scalability and mission-critical properties of the newly combined networking portfolio.
“Enterprises are clearly asking for more choice when looking at networking solutions,” said Mark Fabbi, vice president and distinguished analyst, Gartner Inc. “The combination of increasing expectations for a more agile infrastructure to meet rapidly changing business demands and the more challenging economic climate requires fresh innovation, strong alternatives and a more business-centric approach to network design.”
By introducing The HP Networking portfolio, clients will eliminate redundant equipment by integrating wired and wireless environments with security from the edge to core. To further drive complexity out of client operations, HP delivers “single pane of glass” management to configure, deploy and monitor the network. This enables common policy management, reduces human error and creates a consistent user experience across access mediums.
The integration of the 3Com portfolio significantly strengthens HP’s position in Latin America as well as China – one of the world’s fastest-growing markets – via the H3C brand of high-performance networking products.
