Bigpoint Delivers Online Gaming to More Than 200 Million Users Worldwide with HP.
HP unified wired and wireless network solutions support international business growth.
HAMBURG, Germany, Jan. 10, 2012
HP today announced that Bigpoint GmbH, one of the leading online gaming networks in the world, has selected HP Networking to support the growth of its rapidly expanding international business.
Based in Hamburg with offices in Berlin, San Francisco, São Paulo (Brazil) and Sliema (Malta), Bigpoint offers more than 70 online titles that span casual to complex multiplayer games. Rather than being downloaded or installed from a CD, all of Bigpoint’s games can be accessed for free wherever internet access is available.
The company’s global distribution network includes more than 1,000 media partners, localized into 25 languages. Bigpoint surpassed 200 million registered users worldwide in June 2011, doubling from 100 million users in less than 18 months.
To deliver the consistent gaming experience necessary for customer satisfaction and business success, Bigpoint has implemented a unified wired and wireless HP network infrastructure. The network foundation is built on dual-redundant HP 8212zl core switches, and includes HP 5406zl advanced intelligent switches at the edge to provide robust network services cost-effectively.
The HP network offers high-availability features that ensure system continuity and enhanced efficiency. In addition, the Bigpoint infrastructure is now flexible and powerful enough to handle spikes in volume and demands from Bigpoint’s growing customer base.
To improve office network connectivity, two HP MSM765 wireless mobility controllers and 54 HP MSM460 wireless access points provide seamless communications throughout Bigpoint’s Hamburg headquarters, enabling mobile working and increasing business productivity.
