    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    I've just been and measured the cab in music which is a new one with 2650 installed and it is 500mm deep as measure frmo the outside.

    The 2650 fits with loads of room at the front so no squashed cables and it also has the console port fitted.

    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    Cheers. Would you say that it would fit in a 450mm cabinet then? Or am I looking at replacing all my wall cabinets with 500mm ones?

    I think it really depends on the exact cabinet you have so I wouldn't like to guaruntee it.

    I'll go and have a look at the manfacturer of that cab if it helps?

    Yeah, that'd be great. The 450mm ones we have are prism ones I believe but the others are unknown and shoddy.

    I've just had another look at the cab but there are no identifying marks on them I'll email my installers and see if they can give me details.

    I got my cabinets from www.bownet.co.uk. I got a hinged one and the quality is fine.

    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    I think I'm actually using 550mm deep cabinets (Prism 9u 550mm Deep 2 Part Wall Cabinet looks right)

    Thats the issue. I want to use HP but if the switches are going to be a problem, size wise and need lots of cabinet replacements then I am thinking it isn't worth it and I'll just end up getting DLink ones again.
    I really wouldn't go D-Link they are ok for SOHO but I am not too impressed in large setups, I have used them in Primary Schools but thats it and they are small primarys at that.

    Thats the thing, I'm currently using Dlinks (which are aging) and my current choices are Dlink xStack stuff or HP Procurve stuff. I'd much prefer the HP so I may just bite the bullet and splash out on a new set of cabinets. The switches are gonna be in them for at least 5 years so it isn't that big an expense.

    Ok heard back from my supplier and the ones they use are excel wall mounted ones.

    WB12.5/SG FP is the part number of a 9U one.

    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    we use the procurve 2650. we've had to replace half the cabs to take them.

    The switches just seem to be getting bigger and bigger. the cab in the science block has been changed 3 times in 2.5 years.

    We just bought a £5k core switch and thought it would fit in the comms cabinet because we were taking out 2x 2650 switches. We asumed they were the same.

    There not. So we gona have to get another cab.

    Good switches though!!!

    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    I've just put the order in and am replacing 4 cabinets for them. Our new 5400zl core is going into our server rack so we don't have to worry about that one...

    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    Lol I have been through this too - 5-10 years ago when most of the cabs were put in switches were not much bigger than a fag packet - We are all HP procurve now and I have had big problems with cabinets. Some of them have had to have the doors left off, one of them i had to put the switch actually on top pf the cabinet and secure with duck tape

    Not ideal!
