KUALA LUMPUR, 18 MARCH 2011 - Technology firm HP Malaysia has announced the industry's first high-speed mobile access solution, which helps clients enhance mobile communications through wireless access points, and also supports 50 per cent more mobile devices than existing technology.
HP Enterprise Business Malaysia, Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking, GM, Anita Lim, said HP Mobile Access Solution offers the industry's first access points that transmit three data streams per wireless radio as opposed to two, enabling the new solution to increase user performance and range on wireless networks. "The new technology delivers up to 15 concurrent high-definition video conferencing sessions on the network, while prior 802.11n offerings supported only 10, and 802.11g supported just one."
"Users often experience degraded network quality as the growth in popularity of mobile access devices - such as smartphones, tablets and notebooks - and multimedia content and software-as-a-service offerings is overloading network capacity," said Lim. "The HP mobile solution is the first dual-radio 802.11n solution with 900 Mbps [megabits per second] signalling to manage the growing number of wireless devices and delivers the performance for an improved user experience."
She said other networking vendors sell separate equipment, software and tools for wired and wireless environments, resulting in additional management, cost and training issues. "Built on the HP Converged Infrastructure strategy, the HP Mobile Access Solution operates as a converged network solution for both wired and wireless environments. As a result, clients can reduce equipment, complexity and resource requirements across their entire network environment by standardising on a single solution that includes operating system, management tool and access control security."
"The HP Mobile Access Solution delivers expanded connectivity without sacrificing throughput," said Lim. "Clients can access their critical applications in a mobile environment with near-Gigabit Ethernet performance that has traditionally only been associated with wired connectivity."
"Clients are demanding increased capacity and performance from their wireless networks without increasing complexity, management requirements or costs," she said. "HP is cutting away traditional barriers with innovation that gives clients a wire-like experience."
