New H3C Group, a Hangzhou-based information technology solution provider, is using moreintegrated solutions to ensure the higher efficiency of backstage IT systems.
"The key to more efficient IT systems is integration. Traditionally, the IT infrastructure isfragmented. When the engineer sends one signal, it is very slow to be carried throughbecause of the lack of the organic connection of different resources," said Wu Jian, chief ofthe cloud computing product department of New H3C.
The company's new systematic solution plan, the unified information system, has increasedthe backstage operation IT system significantly.
New H3C provides customers with a full range of servers, storage, networking, securityproducts, hyper-converged infrastructure and IT management systems. Its products havebeen widely deployed in nearly 100 countries and regions serving customers such asVodafone, Telefonica, Swiss Telecom, DreamWorks and Samsung Electronics. Its revenue in2015 stood at 21 billion yuan ($3.1 billion).
In the company's survey of its customers, it found that IT system maintenance engineerscomplained about the complicated operation process in which they have to log onto differentinterfaces to manage different parts of the system, such as the power supply, the CPU, themachine cabinets, and the memory.
"UIS aims to make the systems management simpler," said Wu.
According to Wu, with UIS, the engineers are able to monitor all parts of the IT system in oneinterface. To some extent, it needs only one engineer to manage the system.
New H3C has cooperated with more than 200 universities to help them boost the efficiency oftheir education system. One noticeable result is that the UIS has overcome the problem ofuser crowding that causes congestion and systematic breakdown in course selection.
For instance, in a school of 20,000 students, it usually takes three days for the students tocomplete the course selection. Now, it only takes three hours with the UIS-backed system.
"UIS has turned IT capacity into a service like running water or electricity. When the courseselection system is running, the capacity will flow to the system. When the course selection iscompleted, it will flow to other places that need it most, said Wu.
In its service directly facing the consumers, New H3C has been taking the lead in Wi-Fiproduct development.
"Stable Wi-Fi services attract more users, which then will become potential customers of moreproducts and services," said Bai Lang, head of the wireless product department of New H3C.
At the World Internet Conference held last year in Wuzhen, Zhejiang, H3C's Wi-Fi solutionrealized 20 mega bytes of data per capita. The whole venue of the conference had nearly3,000 access points. In peak hours more than 6,000 people were connected to the internet atthe same time.
According to China Internet Network Information Center, as of June 2015, 88.9 percentChinese internet users use mobile phones to get connected to the internet while 93 percent ofmobile phone users access the internet by Wi-Fi.
According to Bai, Chinese enterprises at the moment have 15 million units of Wi-Fi devicesand New H3C's products account for 30 percent of them. It has around 5 million access pointsthroughout the country, covering more than 20 industries such as medical services, educationand retail.
