HP is refocusing its strategy in the networking market with an aggressive bid for greater market share. After announcing a bumping-up of benefits and value-added support on offer to Elite Partners selling its ProCurve Networking products, the vendor has given its range a boost with the introduction of a variety of networking solutions. These comprise hardware, software and services and are designed to simplify the development of secure, mobile and multi-service networks as well as provide IP telephony capability. The offerings — the IP telephony, Procurve Access Control Security and Mobility Infrastructure solutions — aim to address the needs of businesses in the region who are looking to develop their network infrastructure. The IP telephony market holds vast potential for network vendors and HP is aiming to tap into that sector with the IP Telephony Solution, a first foray for HP into the IP telephony field. HP claims that this solution helps customers get more from their networks by allowing them to add voice capability to an existing network via the use of IP switching infrastructure with IP telephony products. The Access Control Security solution protects networks through ensuring that only authorised users are allowed onto either wired or wireless networks. The solution utilises a centralised policy control through a combination of software applications and switch products. HP’s Mobility infrastructure solution is designed to deliver secure, persistent and dependable mobile connectivity to resources that allow employee work to proceed uninhibited by physical location, increasing user productivity and return on IT investment. The solution not only includes hardware and software, but also the services, support and tools necessary to enable a simple, successful, cost-effective wireless LAN deployment. To support these new solutions and extend the breadth of its product line, ProCurve also introduced a series of wireless and switch product lines including products such as antennas, access point cards and a range of switches for increased network integration.
