Providing reliable, private connections is a good way to improve the value of your network. Virtual private networks (VPNs) enable you to use the Internet as a medium for secure data exchanges. But VPNs must also maintain minimum service levels and improve network resource utility to allow the delivery of bandwidth-intensive applications such as streaming multimedia. Established MPLS VPN standards enable flexible support for proprietary and standards-based networking equipment. HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) MPLS VPN Manager (MVM) was created to help administer these private connections. IMC MVM provides functions such as VPN auto-discovery, topology, monitoring, auditing, and performance evaluation, as well as VPN and service deployment, which enable IT managers to best allocate resources. IMC MVM also contains a traffic engineering component that helps operators monitor an entire network and deliver service quality by distributing suitable network resources as needed.
