HP switch wins award
The device - which is described by the publication as being in "an entirely different class" to other switches - was named Best Workgroup Switch based on reviews and testing carried out by InfoWorld.
"Most enterprises treat Layer 2 workgroup switches as commodities, and this switch fulfils those price and performance requirements. It stands out in the depth of its management features and configuration ease," the online magazine states.
HP's ProCurve Switch 2810 series comes in 24 and 48-port designs and according to the manufacturer its shallow form makes it ideal for smaller wiring closets.
The 1800 switch was also praised by InfoWorld, which claimed it has a lot to offer those setting up a small network of managed switches.
Meanwhile, HP ProCurve has purchased the wireless networking provider Colubris Networks - the first acquisition made by the company.
