    Question HP V1910-48G Recommed?

    Hi Guys and Girls.

    We are looking at upgrading our backbone and server room switches from Netgear GS724TS to something with a bit more throughput such as HP 1910-48G showing 104Gbs.

    Can anyone recommend this switch or another switch that would suite the bill.

    We would like high throughput, 48 x 1GB Copper ports and room for 4 SPF modules. We can get the 1910 for 350 and the modules for 135 so something similar price would be great but we can stretch to 1,000 for the 1 switch and 2 modules if need be.

    Thanks in advance for recommendations or suggestions,

    Thanks,
    Tom

    The 1910-48g is a good cheap edge switch but I am not sure I'd reccomend it as a backbone. I'm guessing this is a primary school? In which case you could probably get away with it, but it is not future proofed for hundreds of devices. Also - they're huge, make sure you have a big cabinet, and they're noisy, make sure it isn't in a classroom.

    We are a secondary school with around 500 computers... What would you recommend/What do you use?

    If you need to do routing on it, you probably want something beefier.

    We have some in our server rack and they haven't missed a beat in three years. 1 for iscsi, one for vmotion and one for the main network with a lacp link to the core.

    I wouldn't use one for a core switch except in an emergency.

    Still miles better than anything I've tried from netgear though.

    We used them as an interim core on a basic flat network with 500+ PCs. They were fine (more than fine, great value and quick), but I wouldn't recommend them for that role.

    I would recommend seeking advice from a professional network solutions provider. A phone call will cost you nothing.

    Beware, the V1910 has a ARP table limit of 256 == more than 256 concurrent network devices / IPs will NOT work on the whole switch.

    - If you do not need routing: Take a look at HP ProCurve Switch 2530-48G, 52-Port, managed (J9775A) With 4 pieces of 1000BaseSX SFP compatible optics, it will be still under 1000,-€ with VAT.
    - If you need routing: Take a look at a "HP renew"ed HP E4800 / HP A5500-EI
