HPE Ethernet Switches Review

PoE and VLAN allow for flexibility in our enterprise network because we can add VoIP and wireless access points if needed.


Valuable Features:

  • Power over Ethernet (PoE)
  • Virtual LAN

Improvements to My Organization:

PoE and VLAN allow for flexibility in our enterprise network because we can add VoIP and wireless access points if needed.

Room for Improvement:

Graphical User Interface (GUI) needs enhancement. Also, using a controller to support multiple access points would help manage and monitor our wireless network. VoIP requires QoS and our switches can work with it. We just need time to really implement across the board.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for three to four years.

Deployment Issues:

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues:

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues:

No issues encountered.

Previous Solutions:

It was an upgrade from older HP models.

Initial Setup:

It was straightforward, but we aren't maximizing all the switch features for our enterprise.

Implementation Team:

We did it in-house.

ROI:

We have years left on this device as well as GB ports, and PoE.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

They have very aggressive pricing compared to Cisco.

Other Solutions Considered:

We also looked at Cisco.

Other Advice:

There are a lot of similar models, so check the features available.
