I am convinced that the mountains that are near many Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) facilities inspire the company’s lab and research and development efforts. I visited its lab in Roseville, California, in the summer of 2018, and was impressed by its capabilities. I wrote an article highlighting my insights. If interested, you can find it here.
Last month, I spent time virtually with the HPE Telco team in Fort Collins, Colorado. If you are not familiar with the city, it is a small college town in the Front Range of the Rockies, famous for its love of cycling and craft beer (both New Belgium and Odell call it home). The city is also a hub for high tech, and it is where HPE focuses on enabling the deployment of 5G on a massive scale. In this column, I would like to highlight what I find compelling about HPE’s telco and 5G lab efforts.
