Get time back in your day with HP Cloud-Managed Networking

By Martine Velkeniers, Global Product Marketing, HP Networking

 

Martine VelkeniersI have a gift for you! It's time! Time back in your day. If you manage IT in a small and midsize business (SMB)—particularly one that has multiple branches—getting the time back that you have to spend provisioning and troubleshooting multiple distributed sites would be blessing. Well, I’m happy to report that HP has developed a way to get that time back using HP Cloud-Managed Networking.

 

You know how crucial mobile networking has become. Mobility untethers workers and in turn can increase productivity. Employees are now able to continue with their work regardless of where they’re located.. Imagine a retail store worker with a tablet assisting customers. Imagine an engineer on a factory floor using a mobile device to diagnose machine issues. Imagine a physician at a remote medical facility updating patient records in real time while visiting patients.

 

Wireless networking in remote branches made simple

To accomplish this level of portability, these workers would require a robust wireless network. With zero IT support available in most remote offices, you would need a network that is easily deployed and maintained—as opposed to one that requires a lot of time to establish wireless access points in each of your branches or offices. Today, I’m happy to introduce HP Cloud-Managed Networking, a simple and easy-to-manage network solution that simplifies wireless networking in small businesses as well as at branch offices.

 

HP Cloud-Managed Networking helps:

  • Lower upfront cost with a pay-as-you-use cloud service model
  • Simplify day-to-day operations by eliminating the need for on-site IT
  • Get users online faster with a single-click network deployment

What’s more, HP Cloud-Managed Networking helps lower the wireless total cost of ownership with Lifetime Warranty 2.0 on access points.

 

Manage your network from the cloud

Instead of having to physically deploy and configure controllers to manage access points in all your facilities, you can do that from the cloud; anywhere, anytime. This means you can simplify provisioning, management, and troubleshooting of distributed sites from a single platform. You can also get rid of on-site management platforms because you can manage centrally from the cloud.

 

Our solution features three access points:

  • HP 365 Cloud Managed AP for highest performance and high-client density - Supports 802.11ac and 3x3 MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) running at 1.3 Gbps
  • HP 355 Cloud Managed AP for high-performance voice and multimedia - Dual-band 802.11n AP, supporting 3x3 MIMO at 450 Mbps
  • HP 350 Cloud Managed AP, cost-effective wireless networking - Dual-band 802.11n, supporting 2x2 MIMO running at 300 Mbps

Improve mobile experiences for your workers

In addition to simplifying wireless management and deployment, HP Cloud-Managed Networking provides enterprise-grade peace of mind. Our supporting APs come with our Wi-Fi Clear Connect technology, which automatically mitigates RF interference so your users get an improved wireless experience.

 

Furthermore, HP Motion Aware technology, helps mobile devices to discover the best AP when roaming.

 

Several features enhance security for wireless networking. HP Cloud-Managed Networking includes an integrated wireless intrusion detection system to detect rogue devices and denial of service attacks. An embedded firewall provides role and SSID based access.
