We use the on-premises deployment model. I know the devices very well, so I prefer HP. I'd recommend the solution. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

My advice would be to draw the network system before calling a technician. It's necessary to do a good job. The price is not the only thing to consider when making your decision. The switches are guaranteed for life, it's a great solution. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would recommend the Hewlett Packard product. They are very, very stable, and for the money it's really good value. I would rate the product a nine out of 10.

We only use the basic features in this solution. It is just a small configuration that we work with. Perfection does not exist and it's always possible to do more. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We use the 2500 PoE switches. I have a lot of experience with HP switches. They're very reliable and are implemented easily. The features that they offer are more than enough for our hospital. There are other features on solutions like Cisco and Juniper, but for what we need, this solution is perfect. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

I would suggest not to invest in this switch. Aruba, which is also HPE, has a great switch. Aruba is taking over these types of switches because of the DLAN and WLAN. I agree that HPE provides good products but I would go with Aruba OS. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

When it comes to HPE switches, as a recommendation, in the end it depends on the requirements. They have to know exactly what they need because HPE has all types and all levels of switches. They keep changing models, and sometimes we have challenges because we find out that two years later, the model is discontinued. Because of this, I say that it is important to purchase the latest model, and not one that is two or three years old because in another year it will be discontinued. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would recommend this product and also a support contract. I don't think that I would pay this price without getting the support. We are happy with this solution but it is really an old model. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
