Hewlett-Packard And BMW Extend Networking Technology Deal

World’s largest computer maker Hewlett-Packard today announced that it has extended its tie-up with the German automobile giant BMW Group.

The company also revealed that as a part of this multimillion dollar, global deal, HP technology will be supplying BMW with the majority of its networking infrastructure.

Keeping in mind BMW Group’s enormous profile and size, it becomes a mandatory requirement for the company to have a fully secured and robust open standard network infrastructure. Not just that, it is also important for the company to have a network infrastructure which gives it back the desired return on investment.

"Global organizations demand high-performance networking solutions and support to ensure interoperability across the enterprise and meet stringent service-level agreements," Johan Deschuyffeleer, senior vice president and general manager, Technology Services for EMEA at HP, said in a statement.

"This new deal confirms HP both as a global player offering flexible services to support the BMW Group's drive for operational excellence, and as the networking platform of choice for large enterprises," he added.

HP also confirmed that it will be offering the BMW Group its HP E-series switches, accompanied by a wide range of support services.
