Telecom Lead India: HP has unveiled HP Virtual
Application Networks solutions that simplify mobile device access, automate
secure site-to-site connectivity and improve rich media application performance
across the HP FlexNetwork architecture.
The offerings include modules for HP Intelligent
Management Center (IMC), to simplify on-boarding, provisioning and
monitoring of employee-owned devices across wired and wireless networks. The
new HP Dynamic Virtual Private Network (DVPN) enables the automation
of secure network connectivity to any location.
The company also introduced a high-performing HP
10500 campus core switch that delivers industry-leading throughput for
rich media applications.
With users increasingly bringing their own devices to
work, organizations must avoid risk to operations by ensuring the on-boarding
of devices on the network is controlled and secured regardless of device type
across wired and wireless connections.
To provide secure application access to employee-owned
devices without putting the organization at risk, HP IMC for unified wired
and wireless networks simplifies management with a single platform to
on-board, provision and monitor both company- and employee-owned devices for
consistent and predictable user application experience.
Legacy network infrastructures typically lack the
flexibility, scalability and automation to support the growing number of
employee-owned devices connected across wired and wireless networks.
Maintaining bandwidth-intensive rich media applications like web conferencing
and providing secure connectivity from site to site also pose problems within
these legacy networks.
Companies embracing video are seeing their network
capacity requirements expand by four times or more when compared to historical
rates. Similarly, it is forecast that the connected device market will
grow at more than 50 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2015 to
Legacy networks are not equipped to handle
initiatives like bring your own device, mobility and bandwidth-intensive rich
media applications,” said Sanjay Jotshi, director, HP Networking, HP India.
HP’s Virtual Application Networks solutions ensure that our clients are able
to transform their networks to securely embrace the demands of new devices and
rich applications with a unified approach.”
