HPE Ethernet Switches Review

They're reliable and stable, and we haven't had any downtime or speed issues.

Valuable Features

The most valuable feature for us is just their reliability. We've never had any problems with them at all. They are quality products that are better than the competition. They were also very easy to configure.

Room for Improvement

It needs better monitoring and alerting for issues. We use HP Intel Management Center, which is good, but there are a few extra things they can improve.

Use of Solution

We have been using them probably for about five years now.

Deployment Issues

We've had no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

It's been stable and we haven't had any downtime.

Scalability Issues

It's scaled for our needs.

Customer Service and Technical Support

We have not had to use any technical support. Our support comes from the company from which we bought the switches. They set them up for us and they provide very good technical support. We've used them for over ten years.

Previous Solutions

We previously used Cisco and were a 3COM user when HP bought them and converted them to switches. We switched because of performance issues, and now we have very, very good performance. We have no speed issues with the licensing network.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was not overly complex. We've got two sites and we use them on both sites. So we've had no problems, but we only have 250 users.

Implementation Team

The company we bought the switches from implemented them for us.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

The price point is good when performance is taken into account compared to their competition.

Other Solutions Considered

We looked at HP first and didn't really consider anyone else.
