Secure, Easy-to-own networks for Government agencies
HP Networking understands that the certification process is critical to ensuring that government customers get the equipment they need and that the equipment performs as advertised, and that it is compatible with existing infrastructure. To that end, HP Networking has an ongoing commitment to the product certification and evaluation program, ensuring that certification is integral to our product development process. HP Networking will continue to work with standards bodies to help accelerate certification and evaluation processes. Access the list of the certification programs and associated certified products.
There has been a lot of press about government modernization lately. The systems and processes that keep governments running are outdated and inefficient. Meanwhile, citizens and government employees are demanding new servicesâ€”from public school employees who want to take advantage of the advancements in digital technology to citizens who want online access to government records to public safety employees who are asking that emergency notification systems be equipped with mobile access to text, data, images, and video. Such chaos can make it difficult for IT teams to support productivity-enhancing technologies such as voice and video over IP and Web 2.0 to improve public safety, communication among agencies and citizen satisfaction. Governments face many challenges in their adoption of technology:
- Offer web-based network access for automated self-service
- Support real-time, resource-intensive, and collaborative applications
- Ensure public safety
A high-performance network is critical to enabling media-rich collaboration and real-time access that improve public safety and citizen and employee satisfaction.
State, provincial and local governments are encountering severe budget constraints and decreased funding coupled with increasing citizen needs and demands. Government modernization is essential if costs are to be contained. At the same time, governments must be poised to take advantage of the technologies and services that can streamline processes, promote inter-agency and private-public collaboration, and meet citizen requirements.
HP enterprise brand of network products help organizations achieve these goals with an extensive portfolio of interoperable, standards-based solutions that deliver state-of-the-art communication and secure information sharing. Our robust, reliable and scalable solutions provide unmatched value, lower total cost of ownership and reduce administrative burdens to enable IT staff to focus on strategic initiatives.
The modern application- and service-ready HP FlexFabric networking architecture - a key element of the HP Converged Infrastructure that connects data center server and storage resources - can quickly adapt to changing business requirements, dynamically scaling capacity and provisioning connections to meet application demands "on the fly."
The HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) technology enables flatter network designs and easier-to-manage infrastructure. State and local governments can create a virtual switching fabric that delivers geographic independence, distributed high availability, resiliency, and millisecond reconvergence across Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocols. With IRF-based solutions, IT teams can pool switching resources to create a lower cost, stable, fault-tolerant environment that is simpler to provision and maintain.
With HP networking solutions as a cornerstone, the HP Converged Infrastructure delivers an architectural blueprint that integrates servers, storage, and networking, eliminating technology silos and freeing up resources to focus more on business innovation.
