replacing HP switches

Latest reply: May 25, 2014 12:03:15 2071 2 0 0

Hi Support, 

We are in the interest of replacing our switches to Huawei switches but have difficulty to find good comparisons to what we currently use. 

Our current switches are HP 2910al-24G-PoE and our provider informed us that the new model is HP 2920-48G-POE+

Could you please guide me in the correct direction on which Huawei equivalent switch I can use? Our requirements are at least VLAN capability / Layer 3 capability and PoE as we use Voice/IP phones and attached desktops and laptops. 

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

S5700LI maybe a good choice.  considering customer's network environment, please contact the local Huawei support-man.

Solution, price and other factors should be took into account.

LI series switches have only L2 features. If you need Inter VLAN routing and DHCP Server,you must have EI series switches (SI series don't support DHCP Server feature).

I would suggest to go ahead with S1 Series for this requirement.
