HP Launches its Networking Portfolio

Following its recent acquisition of 3Com, HP unveiled its edge-to-core networking portfolio that combines key elements of the HP ProCurve and 3Com line, along with TippingPoint security products. The portfolio is a cornerstone of the HP Converged Infrastructure strategy, which eliminates silos of servers, storage and networking to create virtual pools of resources designed to optimally run business services.

HP Networking said its product line-up allows customers to eliminate redundant equipment by integrating wired and wireless environments with security from the edge to core. The company will also feature a "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 new portfolio consists of four product families that address specific client requirements from the branch to data center. These solutions are supported by HP Services and sold through HP and 40,000 specialized channel partners.

The company also cited its more than 5,000 network infrastructure and voice professionals worldwide as a key differentiator, enabling it to provide a full life cycle of Networking Services.

HP's newest internal data center will run completely on HP networking products.

HP Networking will be led by Marius Haas, senior vice president and general manager, and is part of the Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking business unit led by David Donatelli, executive vice president and general manager.
