As our company is growing we need to be able to upgrade our equipment. It is great for smaller companies.

HPE Aruba Ethernet Switches

The cost, simplicity of use, lifetime hardware warranty and wide range of models make HPE Aruba a great fit nearly anywhere. HPE really stands by their switches with the lifetime hardware warranty. Once an issue is deemed to be hardware related I can expect to have a replacement very quickly. Usually, when I get a replacement it will be on my desk the next day.

It is a very good product, has almost all the feature you can need to access switches, a simple web GUI management, but not all can be configured from the GUI interface.

I used Cisco and Cisco is a great product but more on the expensive side. This is a great product for smaller companies.

Cisco Switches are build to last forever however they are more expensive to purchase. HP Switches work well the fans do go out from time to time which will cause the switch to fail. Aruba Switches are priced right and have software and hardware improvements over HP.
