- Higher demands being put on network efficiency
- Traditional quick fixes not good enough
HEWLETT-Packard has launched its Network Infrastructure Optimization Services portfolio, which it said was designed to help customers evaluate and improve their network flow and infrastructure to ensure a quality user experience.
The increasingly mobile workforce requires instant connectivity to applications and data to effectively do their jobs — regardless of their location, the company said in a statement.
As a result, requests are not only coming from greater distances, but are putting higher demands on network connectivity. To meet these challenges, enterprises need to optimize network resources and reduce bottlenecks to improve the end-user experience., HP said.
The HP Network Infrastructure Optimization Services portfolio spans network topology – from within the data center and between data centers, to wide area networks (WANs) and local area networks (LANs) – to identify and eliminate inefficiencies, while optimizing infrastructure to make applications run faster.
“With a dispersed workforce and growing connectivity demands, enterprises can no longer revert to traditional singular quick fixes, such as adding bandwidth, to address network issues,” said Kok Ee Mann (pic), director, Technology Consulting, Technology Services, HP Malaysia.
“HP’s new services pinpoint inefficiencies that can be removed for a greater end-user experience,” he said.
The HP Network Infrastructure Optimization Assessment lets companies work with HP consultants who analyze traffic across network topology to identify application delays, jitter and bandwidth issues.
This comprehensive assessment pinpoints inefficiencies, enabling clients to proactively address potential performance problems at the source and create a strategy for optimizing resources, the company said.
In addition, HP works with clients to align business and IT needs and identify the right solution for them.
