<p>According to Dell’Oro Group’s data, HP ProCurve achieved growth in worldwide port shipments that exceeded that of any other industry vendor. This growth occurred in a period that saw port shipments decline for a majority of vendors.</p>

<p>Gurkirat Singh, HP ProCurve Country Manager South Pacific commented, “In the current uncertain business environment, business leaders are telling us that they are carefully examining new investments, and focusing on getting the most from their IT budgets. Australia and New Zealand businesses have been looking for a better deal, and lower running costs for their network, which has been a factor behind ProCurve’s rapid local growth. ProCurve solutions include lifetime hardware replacement warranties, free firmware upgrades, and easy to use management tools, allowing our customers to reduce both their upfront and ongoing networking, with typical cost savings of 25% to 50% achievable over the life of the network.”</p>
