Hewlett Packard's ProCurve networking arm has released a series of new products for wired and wireless networks.
The new additions to the ProCurve portfolio include improved control software, new gigabit switches with accompanying modules, and new Wi-Fi access points and antennas.
The products are largely aimed at reinforcing HP's Edge strategy of pushing network functions away from a central core processor towards the edge of the network.
"We're not a 'me too', Cisco-following company. What we are creating is something very different to what's on the market from Cisco," said HP's ProCurve business manager John Wetherall.
HP has also upgraded its ProCurve Manager and Manager Plus network control software, adding improved access point management. Email and SMS messages to alert administrators to problems have been added, along with data sampling software that can be used to monitor performance.
Software updates are to be made available to the Secure Access 700wl module to make security configuration easier, and the company has also upgraded IP security for its 9300m series of switches.
The existing switch range has been expanded with a 16-port gigabit switch, with two new add-on modules giving 28-port or 48-port extensions.
A new Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch has been added with an external power supply to give 15.4W per port, in line with the 802.3af PoE standard.
And HP has released six new Wi-Fi antennas for the 420 and 520wl wireless access points, with a mixture of internal and external, omni-internal or directional antennas. The 520wl has also been updated with an 11-channel radio card.
