Re: HP Procurve switch vs Cisco switch

I don't know of anything like that . You would have to go to each site and look at the specs for each model and try to compare them best as you can on features , price points , warranties etc...

Re: HP Procurve switch vs Cisco switch

Hello there is a difference between Cisco and HP Procurve that I have noted.

1. I see in the HP Procurve homepage as a declaration like "the World number 2 selling switches." . The nuimber one is known :)

2. Not all feature that aree in tech specs of HP are fullfilled by devices at the first releases of models. Instead these features are added over time on the next os releases for each model.

If you look at Cisco at any switch you can find more capabilities and standarts supportetd that at any network vendor.



P.S This is my opinion
