What needs improvement?

What is most valuable?

The valuable features are: * Reliability and consistency of service * Standard core functions you would expect from a network switch * Demonstration of price against performance.

What needs improvement?

What needs improvement?

Building a bigger ecosystem around them, not just wired/wireless, but there's being able to bring other HP areas such as server and storage groups. At the moment, they operate as separate business areas, and they could clean that up a bit.... more»

What other advice do I have??

How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?
