HPE Ethernet Switches Review

Functional interface, unique features, and easy installation

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution as an enterprise network switch.

What is most valuable?

The main features of the solution I have found to be the interface and unique features other solutions do not have. Additionally, they have a lifetime warranty on the hardware.

What needs improvement?

There is some improvement needed for the power supply of the solution.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for approximately five years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We had 8,000 students using the solution in one of my client's organizations. We do plan to increase usage in the future.

How are customer service and technical support?

The customer support is very good, you create a ticket and they get back to you quickly with a response.

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

I was using other solutions previously, such as Fortinet, Cisco, and Juniper Switches. I prefer FortiSwitch more than HP Switches because FortiSwitch has more capabilities that are not supported by any other solution, for example, FortiLink. However, HPE is a very good company and is very large.

How was the initial setup?

The initial installation is easy.

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

All the solutions have a license for the QSFP. Additionally, there is a one-time license fee to increase the interface speed.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others.

I rate HPE Ethernet Switches a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
