“Customers are looking for vendors driving a systemic change in networking to eliminate complexity, improve agility and increase performance,” said Subhodeep Bhattacharya, director- India, HP Networking. “HP’s new modular campus switches outperform Cisco’s in-class products head-to-head in each category, while HP’s single-pane-of-glass management tool alone does what it takes Cisco 30 different tools to do.”

HP announced a new HP A-series 10500 campus core switch, which delivers 3 microsecond latency, which is 75 per cent lower than Cisco’s Catalyst 6509, and also delivers 128 wire-speed 10GbE ports, which is 270 per cent higher performance than the 6509, claims the company.

For large campuses, a super core with 208 wire-speed 10GbE ports can be delivered with two HP A10500 switches using the HP Intelligent Resilient Framework, which allows multiple switches to be virtualized and operate as a single switch.

The A10500 will support 100GbE with the addition of new line cards, says the company.

At the access layer of the FlexCampus, HP added two new line cards for the HP E5400 and E8200 switches.

HP also announced HP E-MSM460 and E-MSM466 wireless access points and a new single-pane-of-glass HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC), HP IMC version 5, across the HP FlexNetwork architecture.

HP IMC helps clients mitigate the risk of migration from proprietary legacy networks to the open, standards-based HP FlexNetwork architecture. HP IMC version 5 provides a unified view into the virtual and physical data centre network.

An upcoming version of HP IMC is planned to add automatic synchronization of network connectivity information with HP Virtual Connect technology for server blades and further automate the process of creating a server profile, moving a step closer to one-button cloud provisioning.

HP also announced a new HP TippingPoint S6100N IPS appliance, which provides up to 60 per cent higher performance than the previous generation. It can inspect up to 16 Gbps of high-bandwidth application traffic in real time, claims the company.
