mobile access solutionHP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced the Mobile Access Solution, which enables clients to optimize mobile communications through wireless access points that is expected to support up to 50 percent more mobile devices than existing technology.

Clients are demanding increased capacity and performance from their wireless networks without increasing complexity, management requirements or costs, observed Subhodeep Bhattacharya, director, networking, HP India. He added, “HP is eliminating traditional barriers with innovation that gives clients a wire-like experience that speeds service delivery over wireless communications, offers broader coverage areas and delivers security consistent with the wired network.”

The technology, as stated by the company, 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. Built on the HP Converged Infrastructure strategy, the mobile solution operates as a converged network solution for wired and wireless environments. Therefore, users can reduce equipment, complexity and resource requirements across their entire network environment by standardizing on a single solution that includes operating system, management tool and access control security.

The dual-radio 802.11n solution with 900 Mb/s signaling accommodates the growing number of wireless devices, delivering expanded connectivity without sacrificing throughput, informed HP. Users can access their critical applications in a mobile environment with near-Gigabit Ethernet performance that has traditionally only been associated with wired connectivity.

Integrated modules enable clients to centrally plan, deploy, configure and monitor access points across the enterprise with a graphical interface. It comes with HP’s lifetime warranty, which offers expanded client protection and next-day equipment replacement.
