Previous Solutions

I've used many products, but switching to HP depends on the customers requirement and the lifetime warranty.

Initial Setup

It was straightforward with basic, simple switching and good documents available for reference.

Implementation Team

We used an in-house team assisted by easily-available technical documents and user-friendly CLI.


It's the best product and has a lower failure rate.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Pretty good in switching, and the pricing is also good in comparison with others.

Other Solutions Considered

No other options evaluated.

Other Advice

Refer to best practices and technical documents.

I am quite new to HP IRF feature, but I like it. Had to do quite a bit of reading, but now works like it should.
