A: HP IMC aligns with all areas of the ISO Telecommunications Management Network’s highly regarded FCAPS model (for Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, and Security). B: The architecture enables efficient implementation of end-to-end business management, and the modular design allows effective integration of traditionally separate management tools, providing complete management of resources, services, and users.
A customer has a multivendor network and wants a single point of contact for support. After talking to the customer, you think the customer would also be interested in a dedicated phone number for support cells and a guarantee that HP Support would respond immediately to problems that interrupt network services. Which care pack would you recommend for this custom or?

A company with a single-vendor network is opening two new branches. What should the company consider when obtaining a networking solution for the branches in order to follow the best practices recommended by analysts such as Gartner? (Select two.)
the most cost-effective way to meet the specific business requirements of the branch
the open standard technologies at work between the branches and the other segments of the network
the specialized management tools already used in other areas and whether they will work with new products
the increased complexities and additional training expenses associated with multi-vendor environments.
the proprietary technologies and vendor solutions used in other areas of the network
Network architects and CIOs must consider alternative network vendors to ensure that they deliver a functional network solution at an appropriate cost point. (A)
Network operations teams should invest in multivendor-capable tools to help enable the organization to deal with a second vendor in their infrastructure, and to improve the operational capabilities with their incumbent solution.
B: With an open, standards-based solution, enterprises can migrate their networks from legacy architectures to advanced architectures so they can meet contemporary business challenges, including cloud computing, federated applications, virtual machine mobility, high-performance mobile access, multimedia and video. Customers can choose best-in-class solutions that will meet their business needs. Using open, industry-standard protocol implementations mitigates the risk and cost of change when the network needs to adapt to new business requirements. And using open networks will make it simpler for enterprises move their applications to public and private cloud services.
Debunking the Myth of the Single-Vendor Network FlexNetwork Architecture
Which component of the FlexNetwork architecture is responsible for controlling virtual sprawl in the data center?
HP TippingPoint Security Management System (SMS)
HP Secure Virtualization Framework (SVF)
HP TippingPoint Virtual Management Center (vMC)
vMC gives IT security personnel complete visibility of the virtualized data center helping them control and secure the sprawl of VMs.
Note #1: VM sprawl: Virtualization features and benefits like high availability (HA), disaster recovery services (DRS) and resource optimization means that virtual machines (VMs) can be moved and spread across different hosts, clusters or data centers. This means that a highly critical aplication might share the same host as a less critical application.
The HP TippingPoint Secure Virtualization Framework (SVF) is a purpose-built software solution designed to enable the physical TippingPoint IPS platform to enforce full data center firewall segmentation and provide IPS inspection between trust zones for physical hosts, virtual machines
(VMs), and even mobile VMs. The vController component intercepts all packets within the hypervisor and, based upon user-defined policies, permits traffic, blocks traffic, or tunnels packets to a TippingPoint IPS N-Series for inspection. SVF has been designed to work with VMware deployments. This fulfills the requirements around protecting the hypervisor, firewall segmentation and inspection and monitoring of sensitive data traffic that may include customer information.
In addition, the HP TippingPoint vController security solution is completely managed by our Virtual Management Center (VMC) that plugs into VMware’s vCenter Management. vMC gives IT security personnel complete visibility of the virtualized data center helping them control and secure the sprawl of VMs. Virtualization makes it easy to create, copy, and roll-back VMs creating an environment where VMs can propagate without proper oversight and security controls. vMC working with vController gives IT security personnel the tools to properly control and secure these previously uncontrolled environments. So increase visibility and control are also addressed by SVF. This is a vital part of the PCI requirements in securing virtual and cloud environments.
As for VM sprawl, as touched upon in the PCI new standards, virtualization of data center infrastructure creates new challenges for security personnel due to the ease with which VMs can move from host to host and even data center to data center, regardless of criticality or sensitivity of data being accessed. However, SVF not only gives IT administrators the tools to easily maintain visibility into the location and state of every VM, but also can automatically apply the appropriate security policies are regardless of the VM state (on, off, or in motion).

When coupled with an HP c-Class enclosure server blade with a supporting Converged Network Adapter (CNA) and the optional CEE Upgrade License, which switch can be used to carry Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) traffic into a converged network?
A Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) License is required to enable Priority Flow Control and Data Center Bridging Exchange for the HP 6120XG switch. This allows the switch to interact with other CEE devices to run applications such as FCoE.

Which switch series are based on a common system architecture founded on HP Provision ASIC technology? (Select three.)
The ProVision application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) architecture is used in the HP 8200 zl, 5400 zl, 3500, and 6200 yl Series. The ProVision ASIC architecture consists of multiplenetwork chips interconnected by fabric chips providing a non-blocking crossbar fabric implementation. A network chip is implemented on each of the various line interface modules (also known as line cards).
