Service Providers have unique networking challenges as compared to other environments. Factor, differentiating Service Provider`s network from others, is the requirement for 100% uptime. The network stability is crucial to their customers’ business and is, therefore, intolerant to disruptions or outages, which may damage the company`s reputation and market position, or even affect it irreversibly. Downtime risks can no longer be mitigated by simply over-engineering the network, but rather deploying network optimization solutions, based on the intelligent monitoring and automated response, versus manual network troubleshooting and brute force time spending.
The Colonial Companies is one of the largest mortgage loan
servicers in the United States. Facing rapid expansion, the
company needed to update an aging infrastructure that was
not enterprise-ready. HP and partner OnX provided an HP
Converged Infrastructure comprising HP networking solutions,
servers, and storage. Benefits include rock-solid uptime,
enterprise-class scalability, and simplification of IT processes
The status quo in network monitoring is no longer adequate for large organizations. It’s simply taking too long for enterprises with mission-critical networks to resolve and find the root causes of network incidents. To speed things up, enterprises must add dedicated incident response and root cause analysis capabilities that are 100% accurate and reliable to their network management arsenals.
It takes so long to diagnose, fix, and eradicate network incidents that network uptime and performance are suffering. Because of this, organizations need to embrace incident response and root cause analysis capabilities to accelerate resolution times and avoid the network downtime and service degradation that can cost them thousands, if not millions, of dollars per minute.

Always-on Connections for Store Networks and Powering Intelligent Systems
In the fast-paced world of retail, network reliability is everything—but so are security, agility, and cost-effectiveness. Retailers want it all, and they depend on their IT administrators to balance these needs. Whether it’s ensuring an always-on connection for store networks, powering intelligent systems aimed at swaying buyer behavior, or transmitting real-time analytics to inform marketing and inventory decisions, the bedrock of successful retailing is a network that can support the growing list of mission-critical applications dependent on secure Internet connectivity.
In the past, finding a solution to balance these demands has been difficult at best. Less expensive wired options like DSL mean hours of downtime each month. Alternatives like T1 connections deliver more uptime but carry a price tag that usually puts large-scale distributed deployments out of reach.
