HP GPAS enables products to be uniquely serialized and tracked as they move through the supply chain and into the hands of the consumer.





Forj: Integrated development tools, ready to use in minutes -- Development teams need to be up and running now, not after days or weeks of installing and configuring tools. Code needs to fly through review and testing for faster delivery and greater value. But quality should not be sacrificed for speed. At this demo, you’ll see how Forj offers development tool suites, including continuous integration and delivery stacks. You’ll discover how these tools can be tailored to your specific use cases. Installed in a public or private cloud or onsite, this suite of tools is fully integrated right out of the box and available in minutes.

Converged Infrastructure


Monetizing your network: Make the network a business enabler -- If you’ve been asked to pay for Wi-Fi, you have first-hand experience with the notion of generating revenue from a wireless network. We also know that most of us won't. But what if you could make money from your network without asking people to pay for access? What if you could better understand and serve your customers’ interests by knowing where they are? By watching where they go? By finding out how long they stay at a location? Come to this demo to learn how the new HP Location Aware SDN application locates wireless devices up to five times more accurately than competing alternatives, and at a much lower cost. Powered by technology developed at HP Labs, HP Location Aware SDN enables a wide range of new context-aware retail, asset management, and security applications.


SDN: Featuring live production SDN environment. Extensible intelligence in the campus and beyond. -- In a production network environment, HP will demonstrate multiple SDN applications running on the HP Virtual Application Network’s (VAN) SDN controller platform. HP and SDN Ecosystem partner-developed applications add intelligence to the network and improve application performance and security – today. The SDN network is geographically distributed over the US and provides services and internet access to multiple worldwide trade shows. Join us to learn how Microsoft Lync users benefit from crystal-clear call quality, as well as enhanced security with automated network posture assessment and real-time security across OpenFlow-enabled network devices.
