HPE Ethernet Switches Review

Very robust and reliable in both scalability and stability

What is our primary use case?

We use HPE switches for connecting to different sites and have LAN switches for local workstations. I'm head of system engineers and we're customers of HPE. 

What is most valuable?

This is an extremely robust product and that is valuable to us. 

What needs improvement?

It would be nice to be able to connect literally with firewall systems, that would be very helpful for us. Configuration could be improved, it is sometimes quite complex. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this product for nearly four years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of this solution is very good. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the product is good. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We have our own team for maintenance so haven't had to use technical support. There are four engineers in the company who help out with maintenance. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup can be complex depending on the situation. 

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product. 

There is always room for improvement so I would rate this product an eight out of 10.
