Hewlett-Packard has launched the ProCurve Alliance, a membership program designed to offer customers security, mobility and convergence solutions that have been tested and qualified for interoperability with ProCurve offerings.
Four companies – Ottawa’s Mite Networksl, AirWave Wireless, DVTel and ShoreTel – are the initial members of the Alliance, with Mitel and AirWave recognized as top-tier strategic members.
HP said each alliance member completed a rigorous application process that includes technology certification to ensure solution interoperability, simplified deployment and optimized performance. ProCurve plans to add further member companies based on customer needs.
“Customers want to work with vendors they trust and who can deliver complete solutions to solve their business needs,” said Mark Thompson, global director of sales and marketing at ProCurve Networking by HP.
“Through the ProCurve Alliance, we have created alliances that deliver tested interoperable solutions without exposing organizations to unnecessary risks.”
HP said resellers benefit from the ProCurve Alliance because they can offer customers comprehensive solutions built on the ProCurve infrastructure that are certified as reliable, secure and scalable.
“ProCurve and Mitel have a large number of joint customers that have benefited from the interoperability and performance of our combined best-of-breed solutions,” said Stephen Beamish, Mitel’s vice president, business development and strategic alliances, Mitel. “Building on this success, we are proud to be part of this new and expanded initiative between the two companies.”
