HP announces 5400R v3 switch to satisfy businesses’ hunger for mobility

By Sue Gillespie, Global Product Marketing Manager, HP Networking


As the use of mobile devices increases in the workplace, so do the demands on your network. These devices require the same set of network services, and in some cases more services, than our traditional stationary desktops. Add to that the increased bandwidth demands of applications like voice, video and collaboration tools – and let’s just say it’s enough to keep CIOs and network administrators burning the midnight oil.


Keeping your network operating at a level that fully supports productivity and business advantage is a full-time challenge. At HP we’ve been working to help you meet that challenge through our campus networking line of products and solutions. We’re excited about our latest product announcement in this area, one that we think represents another giant step forward.


The HP 5400R Switch Series has already won accolades, and today we expanded this line with the introduction of ten new v3 switching modules.

A big milestone on the road to the mobile-ready workplace

By Gladys Alegre-Kimura, Global Product Marketing Manager, HP Networking


Gladys Alegre Kimura.jpgIs the bring-your-own-device crisis finally over? I almost wanted to say “the war on BYOD,” and that might not have been overstating it, given the defensive posture that many IT organizations adopted in the early stages of the great shift to mobility. Things have moved on, though, as businesses have realized the tremendous gains in productivity that are there for the taking with a well thought-out strategy. Forward-looking network leaders are embracing BYOD and thinking in terms of wireless-first. They’re looking down the road toward the next set of challenges (like the coming wave of wearables – see my previous blog), and they’re investigating the many advantages of Software-defined Networking (SDN).


New HP offerings, announced today at Interop, will enable companies to take a huge step forward on the road to the mobile-centric enterprise.

Get to know the HP SDN App Store at Interop

By Hamid Lalani, HP SDN GPLM


Hamid Lalani.jpgWe’ve heard a lot about the “consumerization of IT” for the past few years; I believe what we’re seeing now is that even enterprise networking is manifesting that trend. Our past few quarters of experience with the HP SDN App Store is a proof point of this distinct trend. As I noted in an earlier post to this blog, we’ve now moved beyond discussions of the definition of SDN and questions about its value, and we’re at the point where it’s poised for customer adoption. Customers are now downloading SDN apps and solving real-world IT problems. In some ways you can’t ignore the similarity with the consumer mobile revolution of downloading apps for the last handful of years.

Network Disaggregation: It's about business, not boxes

By Ahmad Zamer, Sr. Global Product Marketing Manager, HP Networking


Ahmed Zamer.pngAfter being frozen in time for long years, the networking industry is now seeing sweeping changes that will shape the future of data center networking. In particular, the emergence of web-scale IT has given birth to one of the most exciting trends in networking: network disaggregation.
