Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"The pricing is quite competitive.""It is stable, and it fulfills our needs. We have all the functions we need, so we're totally satisfied.""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.""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's most valuable feature is that it is user-friendly.""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."

Cons
"I would like to see a version available with eight or sixteen ports.""It would be ideal if the solution was less expensive.""One of the issues that we have been faced with here in Brazil is that we don't have any list times for delivery."

More Arista Campus LAN Switches Cons →

"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.""The interface we have could be better.""I don't have any recommendations for areas of improvement.""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.""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.""There should be faster interfaces on the switch, such as 25 gigabits.""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."

    Top Answer:The price is not that good, but our clients value the solution despite the price.
    Top Answer:One of the issues that we have been faced with here in Brazil is that we don't have any list times for delivery. I am not aware of this is valid in other regions, or if it is only here in Brazil.
    Top Answer:We have found the solution to be entirely stable.
    Top Answer:The price could be more competitive. Everything is included in the price as there are no security features that need to be updated, it is just the hardware alone.
    Top Answer:Since we transfer from one to ten gigabits of information, in a future release, it would benefit to have more high-speed ports. For example, the uplink should be 40 gigabits or 100 gigabits. That… more »
