ProCurve Networking by HP has expanded its Layer 2 stackable Ethernet product line with the introduction of three series of switches that offer high reliability and cost-effective performance.
Designed for companies of all sizes, the ProCurve Switch 2810 Series, 1800 Series and the 2510-24 switches are easy to set up, use and maintain. The switches include features such as fan-less or reduced noise operation, an intuitive Web-based user interface and a smaller size for efficient deployment.
“These new Layer 2 stackable Ethernet switches combine excellent performance with ProCurve’s hallmark quality and reliability at an affordable price that adds up to industry-leading value,” says Lorna Hardie, business unit manager: ProCurve Networking by HP at HP Southern Africa.
Like all ProCurve products, the new switches are based on industry standards for superior interoperability in multi-vendor network environments. They come with ProCurve’s lifetime warranty as standard, which features next-day replacement, free telephone and E-mail support, and free software updates for as long as the customer owns the product.
Available in 24- and 48-port stackable configurations, the ProCurve Switch 2810 Series is a Layer 2 Gigabit managed switch offering high-performance and secure 10/100/1000 connectivity, even in smaller wiring closets.
With its quiet operation and small form factor, the 2810 Series is effective for businesses requiring advanced traffic prioritisation, flexibility in user authentication or extensive traffic-monitoring capabilities in their networks.
In addition, the 2810 works optimally in bandwidth-hungry applications such as graphical data, video streams, large database activity and data storage.
The Web-managed ProCurve Switch 1800 Series enables affordable, out-of-the-box Gigabit connectivity with fundamental management and configuration capabilities.
The 1800 Series features a simple and intuitive web interface, making it particularly useful for businesses that do not have a large IT staff or advanced network management requirements.
The ProCurve Switch 2510-24 is a 24-port 10/100 managed Ethernet switch that combines Layer 2 switching with easy installation and exceptional reliability.
The 2510-24 is small enough to be used in a wiring closet or as a desktop switch. It has no fan, providing noiseless operation for installation in open spaces or public areas.
With two built-in dual personality ports, the product offers two 10/100/1000 ports for server connectivity or stacking and two optional Gigabit Mini-GBIC slots for fibre connectivity for longer distance uplinks.
