enterprise wireless LAN networking

  1. 1. hp procurve networking enterprise wireless LAN networking mobility solutions
  2. 2. mobile workforce drives wireless adoption Instant access to information is vital in today’s highly competitive global business environment. To succeed, both large enterprises and smaller organizations must make it easier for employees, customers, and business partners to access real-time business introduction intelligence and collaborate without constraints. This highly mobile workforce and global customer base demands computing and communication tools that support wireless access to the resources necessary to remain productive. And they want wireless solutions that transparently extend the power of the network resources they use every day. WLANs provide flexible, fast, effective wireless solution PDAs, laptops, and Web-enabled cell phones are the fastest-growing segment of the computing devices market. Users need access to information wherever they go—whether it’s to a meeting of an ad hoc workgroup or to the other end of the corporate campus. Wireless access allows them to share files, e-mail, and other important information easily and seamlessly. And many IT departments are discovering that wireless networking allows them to expand or dynamically reconfigure their networks quickly and cost effectively. why hp procurve networking? HP ProCurve Networking offers a total network solution whether at the desktop or on the go. Wired or wireless, HP ProCurve Networking products save time, perform optimally, and significantly reduce the total cost of ownership of your network infrastructure. available ProCurve Networking wireless devices support the IEEE 802.11b standard, a flexible specification endorsed by the Wi-Fi Alliance. This standard frees users from dependence on expensive proprietary technologies. 802.11b, which offers data speeds up to 11 megabits per second, has simplified the process of going wireless. With HP ProCurve Networking, productivity increases because users can access, input, and process information easily and securely anytime, anywhere. affordable HP ProCurve Networking products lead the industry in price performance. ProCurve Networking products provide the functionality and flexibility to cost-effectively meet both current and future networking requirements. ProCurve Networking delivers a low total cost of ownership with no compromise in quality, performance, service, or support. And Procurve Networking will continue to add value to existing products with software upgrades, as well as a solid roadmap for the future. for more information about hp procurve wireless products, visit www.hp.com/go/hpprocurve 2
  3. 3. secure A wireless LAN extends network access beyond the confines of the performance traditional wired network—presenting and new user access, data protection, and reliability integrity challenges for the network administrator. The HP ProCurve Networking wireless access security solution combines industry-standard 802.1x port-based access control, Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP), and RADIUS server authentication, authorization, and accountability (AAA) functionality to provide secure wireless access to authorized users of the network. This combination of functionality offers a broad range of RADIUS-based user authentication methods to guard against unauthorized network access and per-session, dynamically generated Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) data encryption to keep networks secure from the edge to the core—at the desktop or on the move. interoperable HP is a leader in developing industry standards for wired and wireless networking. Since a networked world needs to communicate cross-platform and cross-product, HP ProCurve Networking solutions work seamlessly alongside any other vendor’s industry­ standard components. This protects your investment for the future and enables you to scale your network easily to increase performance and functionality. for more information about hp procurve wireless products, visit www.hp.com/go/hpprocurve 3
