HP ProLiant DL385 Carrier-Grade Server

System reliability is absolutely mission-critical in the telecommunications industry. To achieve the highest reliability, organizations have often chosen to build proprietary and typically expensive systems. But not anymore. Today you can use commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) platforms for your network. And in doing so, you'll still experience the highest levels of reliability, continue to meet stringent industry and NEBS requirements, and —best of all—provide a more cost competitive and compelling platform to your customers.
