HSIL Builds Gigabit Network With ProCurve Switches

HSIL, a leading sanitaryware company in India, marketing under the brand 'Hindware' enjoyed strong business growth in recent years as the economy prospered and consumer spending took off. Over the years, HSIL's IT systems had grown disparate. Its network, hardware, messaging and other communications systems were separate and poorly connected. The disparate systems included IBM/HP hardware, Cisco and D-Link network equipment, Oracle software and a home grown enterprise resource planning system, as well as an outsourced email solution. The poorly integrated IT systems could not deliver an efficient platform for supporting HSIL's business growth. In March 2006, they decided to revamp HSIL's IT infrastructure. Their goals were to rationalise and consolidate around fewer vendors, achieve seamless connectivity and greater cost efficiency in IT. ProCurve switches were selected to power the new HSIL network.
