Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and NEC Corporation says they have strengthen their alliance to capture new opportunities in key markets like networking.
By integrating the HPE and Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, wireless and wired networking portfolio with NEC Software-Defined Networking (SDN) solutions, the companies hope to quickly accelerate the adoption of mobile-first networking to improve workplace productivity.
Additionally, the extension of HPE’s and NEC’s joint development in SDN will also enable both companies’ customers to improve the agility and effectiveness of their networks to advance key business objectives. Customers can now enhance their existing networking platform to a next generation infrastructure to meet the needs of mobility in today’s digital workplace and support the introduction of Internet of Things (IoT) devices in the enterprise.
“HPE and NEC have joined forces to bring the value of mobile first networking to our mutual customers worldwide,” Dominic Orr, senior vice president and general manager, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Networking says. “We are leveraging years of joint collaboration to integrate our technologies in order to rapidly address additional customer opportunities across our key markets.”
“The Integration of NEC’s SDN technologies and HPE and Aruba Mobile First technologies will result in comprehensive solutions that help our customers worldwide enhance their productivity,” said Kimihiko Fukuda, executive vice president, NEC Corporation. “We also see complementary value to jointly collaborating in areas such as security and the Internet of Things (IoT).”
