Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"These OmniSwitches are very manageable and easy to configure.""With Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch LAN Switches everything comes from one vendor. It operates very smoothly."

More Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch LAN Switches Pros →

"HPE ProCurve's most valuable feature is that it is user-friendly.""The network management solutions that they have is great.""One of the biggest things in HPE ProCurve that I like, though not necessarily a feature, is the HPE warranty because it's probably better than any of the other vendors that we deal with, as it has a lifetime replacement. Feature-wise, the web interface of HPE ProCurve is typically pretty good and I like that as well.""The pricing is quite competitive.""It has an excellent menu system where you can use both the CLI and a menu system and the GUI version. They have three options for manipulating, updating, and changing the switch, which we like.""We have found the solution to be entirely stable.""HPE ProCurve has plenty of features.""HPE ProCurve is very complex for junior engineers and beginners. You need a lot of experience in managing switches in order to use this switch."

Cons
"I would like to see better third-party integration with third-party systems."

More Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch LAN Switches Cons →

"There should be faster interfaces on the switch, such as 25 gigabits.""The interface we have could be better.""There is one proprietary function they lack, and I can't remember what it was called, but it monitors the ports, and then every 10 seconds if the port is down, it can divert the traffic somewhere else.""An area for improvement in HPE ProCurve is the web interface not being as robust because you still have to go to the COI to make modifications or look at the exact configuration.""I don't have any recommendations for areas of improvement.""HPE ProCurve could improve by making their command more similar to other solutions, such as the access codes. There should be a standard. Additionally, if the configurations could be done from the cloud would be a benefit and the port uplink speed should improve.""HPE ProCurve is very complex for junior engineers and beginners. You need a lot of experience in managing switches in order to use this switch.""Since we transfer from one gigabit to ten gigabits of information, in a future release, it would benefit to have more high-speed ports."
