Today Mike Nielsen of the global HP networking organization will introduce you to the HP networking solution portfolio.
There are a multitude of new technologies on the market today that promise to help SMBs maintain and grow revenues while increasing customer satisfaction and holding down cost. From cloud computing to social media to unified communications, SMBs have the opportunity to use technology to drive efficiencies and gain a competitive edge.
Most SMB networks were built to support business applications and web services. Most likely, their networks can readily handle data traffic, such as accessing shared storage and file servers, sending email, browsing the Internet and trading instant messages. Adding bandwidth-intensive rich media communications and interactive content, which rely heavily on video and audio, to the mix can be too much for some networks.
But networks are often overlooked by business executives, especially when finances are tight. Revamping the network can allow your customers to deliver better-quality voice and video and to support more mobile devices while lowering capital and operational expenses. It can even pave the way to cloud computing.
HP understands your customers’ business drivers and has the expertise and solutions to help make technology work for them. HP Networking offers business-grade and advanced networking solutions tailored for the needs of small or midsize business. You can help your customers get up and running fast with networking solutions for unified communications, mobility, network management, security and branch offices—all supporting wired and wireless LAN and WAN infrastructures. Many of our products are backed by comprehensive lifetime warranties and are simple to use.
