When you decide upon pricing points, Cisco won't win.

So if this is the decision your management is going to make, don't even bother.

Re: Cisco Vs HP Networking

Hi Leo,

that’s why i am taking the step ahead to provide a solid technical argument

why to have the investment in Cisco now compared to the  lower investment in having HP.

Can you help me with or if you have any document, case studies,

as I keep searching for comparisons or review but without success on the net.

one nice argument i did find is:

based on the EOL, whic  make scense.

Best Regards,

Another should be reliability and troubleshooting - when there is an issue, I would bet there are far more people able to assist with cisco devices as opposed to HP.

Push also the overhead for re-training and familiarising with the HP's - if its cost management are concerned with, push that you may need re-training to completely familiarise yourself with the HP products and downtime may become longer when and if there is an issue as a result.

STOP creating duplicate threads.  

If you want a technical document about Cisco vs HP, the best people to ask is your local Cisco AM/SE.
