HPE comware NETWORKing solutions

Networking solutions that enable both traditional and evolving data center architectures 

HPE Comware based data center switches, campus access switches, and routers

Unlock new levels of network performance, reliability, and scalability across data center, campus, and branch with the HPE Comware family of switches and routers. Based on the Comware modular operating system, these switches deliver enterprise class-availability, support complex deployments based on EVPN and VXLAN, and offer superior security with MACsec encryption. 

Automated, multi-vendor and proactive network management

As network management becomes more complex, the risks associated with compromised data flow have also increased. HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC) delivers comprehensive, multi-vendor management across branch, campus core and data center networks with scale of up to tens of thousands of devices. IMC converts meaningless network data into actionable insight to keep your network and business moving.
