Reap the benefits of the mobile revolution with a flexible network architecture that’s simple to manage–and scales easily to meet future demand. It's why customers partner with HP to simplify network operations and infrastructure using HP FlexNetwork solutions.
HP innovation in WLAN solutions focuses on three key areas:
1. Unified wired and wireless access
Single-pane-of-glass management with HP FlexNetwork solutions HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) provides monitoring and security for wired and wireless networks. IMC can also manage multivendor environments—up to 6,000 devices from more than 200 vendors.
Unified access and policy control associated with each user's identity provides consistent guest and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) access, policy enforcement and user management across HP or multivendor wired and wireless networks. Seamless integration of wireless LAN (WLAN) modules with HP modular switching platforms unifies your hardware to provide high availability and redundancy—with one device to manage. You can lower operating costs by up to 54% while delivering twice the client scalability of competing solutions.
2. Optimized architecture and client performance
Non-blocking optimized architecture delivers wire-like performance needed to support your mobile workers, who rely heavily on smartphones, tablets and laptops.
HP dual-radio three spatial-stream 802.11n access points give you near-gigabit client network access and support twice the number of users when compared with two spatial-stream access points.
A self-healing WLAN provides worry-free access without dead spots or unpredictable performance when there is RF interference or if an AP or radio fails. HP Wi-Fi Clear Connect software automatically adjusts to changing RF conditions and delivers reliable Wi-Fi service to your users.
3. BYOD security and scalability
Our BYOD solution delivers a robust, simple, scalable and secure way for your enterprise to allow users to access information from their personal devices. It provides the essentials for secure wireless network access and goes beyond by creating an easy-to-manage, unified wired and wireless network with scalable flexibility.
