ProCurve Networking by HP Provides Backbone

ProCurve Networking by HP Provides Backbone for Microsoft Technology Centers Worldwide


SYDNEY, Australia, Dec 11, 2007 – ProCurve Networking by HP today announced that its infrastructure products have been chosen as the standard for all Microsoft Technology Centers (MTCs) around the world.

Microsoft has installed, or is in the process of installing, ProCurve wired and wireless networks at its eight MTCs in North America, as well as global locations in China, Dubai, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.

As the sole network infrastructure vendor for all MTCs worldwide, ProCurve will provide joint support of new product trials, integration testing and new product demonstrations for MTC clients who require security and highly available networks. The ProCurve infrastructure allows customers to easily test out their products and services in a networking environment created to manage advanced applications without requiring any hardware upgrades.

MTCs were established in 2001 to showcase the latest technologies from Microsoft and its strategic partners. Each MTC has a team of experts that works with customers to plan, design and evaluate customized products using Microsoft and interoperable partner technologies, including ProCurve, prior to deployment in customers’ IT environments.

“ProCurve’s equipment is paramount to our global technology centers. All MTC visitors will be able to witness the reliability of the network based on ProCurve technology,” said John Mathieu, director, MTC Global Alliance. “The ProCurve infrastructure has given MTCs greatly enhanced network power and the ability to adapt without compromising security.”

MTC networks feature ProCurve’s award-winning 5400zl Switch Series, which delivers Gigabit wirespeed performance, intelligence and control to the edge of the network. MTC networks also utilize the ProCurve 2900 Switch Series, a high-bandwidth, plug-and-play, 10-Gbps Ethernet switch for stacking and uplink. In addition, the centers feature the ProCurve 5300 Switch Series for scalable Layer 2, 3, and 4 switching in compact 4- or 8-slot modular form factors.

To address network mobility tasks, MTCs use ProCurve Access Point 530, a secure, dual-radio standalone access point that protects MTC networks and assets from unauthorized access. To manage the MTC, both the wired and wireless infrastructure are supported by ProCurve Identity Driven Manager, a plug-in module software management tool for ProCurve Manager Plus that applies security and performance settings to help administrators efficiently manage users and devices connecting to the network.

Further information on ProCurve networking solutions, products and lifetime warranty is available at www.procurve.com.
