IT major HP on Tuesday announced a mobile access solution which it said enables clients to optimise mobile communications through wireless access points that can support up to 50 per cent more mobile devices than existing technology.
The company said it is offering 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 offering supported only 10 sessions, and 802.11g supported just one, according to a company statement.
Leading networking vendors sell separate equipment, software and tools for wired and wireless environments, placing extra management, cost and training burdens on clients, it said.
Built on the HP converged infrastructure strategy, the solution operates as a converged network solution for both wired and wireless environments, it added.
“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”.
