Why do I need it?

There are plenty of switches on the market to choose from and many of them come with increased complexity and cost. Not so, with the HP 2910 series.
If the bells and whistles of a Cisco switch are not necessary, but Enterprise level dependability is, this switch is an excellent choice.

From a customer:
“Thanks for the suggestion on the HP {J9147A} switch. It  arrived in perfect condition and was up and running in a matter of minutes after connecting the module and fiber cable, turning it on and giving it an IP address. Done.”

This HP switch is simple, dependable and affordable. We also like this switch for its excellent VLAN support and QOS for VoIP.

Install Tips:

- If you’re coming from Cisco gear, the commands might seem a bit odd, but they are quite simple.
- While the switch offers a web interface, we found the command line to actually be easier. See the “Helpful Links” paragraph below for command line help and a GUI walk through.
- Expecting multiple links between switches? Turn spanning tree on.
- If port trunking on the uplinks is enabled, the switch will do a better job of spreading out the traffic load.
- Additional modules in the back work great for inter-switch connections and leave the front ports free for other uses.
