HPE Ethernet Switches Review

Cost-effective and straightforward to set up

What is our primary use case?

These access layer switches are used by our branches for user LAN connectivity.

What is most valuable?

These are the basic access layer switches used for connectivity among users, and they are cost-effective.

What needs improvement?

We sometimes have issues with the stability of our POE switches. If there is any fluctuation in power then we will face an outage with our POE switches, so this is something that should be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using these switches for between four and five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

These switches are partly stable but we do sometimes face issues with them. We do plan to continue using them in the future.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have these switches deployed in different branches and in many cities.

In our office, we have between 10 and 12 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

We are only using this product for basic purposes, so we do not require technical support from HPE.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using Cisco Ethernet switches before we switched to HPE. The HPE switches are almost the same and we switched because they are more cost-effective.

How was the initial setup?

The installation and initial setup are straightforward. The minimum time required is half an hour.

What about the implementation team?

Our in-house team is responsible for deployment. We have five or six team members who are engineers.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are no licensing costs for this solution.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I can recommend.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
