HP Rallies Networking Partners
Most networking industry VARs are seemingly in Las Vegas this week for the Cisco Partner Summit. But that hasn’t stopped HP from making some noise of its own. HP has launched the ProCurve Alliance, a membership program designed to offer customers security, mobility, convergence solutions … yada, yada, yada … this news is good for solutions providers, The VAR Guy believes.
Four companies – Mitel, AirWave Wireless, DVTel and ShoreTel – are the initial members of the ProCurve Alliance, with Mitel and AirWave recognized as top-tier strategic members. The initiative reinforces HP’s noteworthy momentum in the networking sector.
Sure, Cisco continues to dominate the networking market. But HP ProCurve has quietly developed a cult following in the networking channel.
