CRN Exclusive: HP CEO Meg Whitman's Top 10 List of Opportunities For Partners


HP Networking

HP's networking business grew 4 percent in the most recent quarter with its switching business up 5 percent compared with Cisco, which posted a 12 percent decline in switching sales. Whitman said HP networking is an "untapped opportunity, particularly in campus, branch and edge. There is a hypothesis that the campus LAN we all put into our companies five or 10 years ago is now getting pretty long in the tooth. The technology has changed quite dramatically. There is a thought afoot that there will be a massive wireless refresh and it won't be wired/wireless anymore it will just be wireless."
