HP ProCurve has announced new converged wired and wireless networking solutions that will allow customers to significantly simplify the delivery of multiple IP-based services by combining centralised network operations with a discrete access device.
The HP ProCurve MSM317 Access Device integrates an 802.11b/g wireless access point and a four-port wired Ethernet switch. It is designed to be installed in a standard wall electrical outlet and centrally managed by any HP ProCurve MultiService Mobility controller.
Two new HP ProCurve MultiService Mobility controllers gives enterprise customers centralised control and management of a network, thereby allowing customers to implement various service policies.
“These converged network offerings extend HP ProCurve’s product portfolio into a new category of innovative network edge products that help customers reduce the complexity of installing and managing their wired and wireless networks,” said Alaa Al Shimy, General Manager of HP ProCurve Middle East. “As our position in the Middle East grows, we will continue to leverage our knowledge, expertise and product portfolio to our existing and new customers in the region.”
Perfect for the hospitality industry, the HP ProCurve MSM317 connects multiple IP-based devices such as VoIP telephones, televisions and other hotel room equipment while reducing power sourcing equipment through integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) support. The integrated access point provides wireless services to hotels, hospitals, dormitories and apartments, extending the range of mobile devices such as laptops and smartphones.
