Unmanaged to Managed networks
I have spent the past few weeks documenting our unmanaged network switches and now looking at HP kit to replace them with over the summer. I have identified which of our existing kit will be adopted supporting 802.1q (smart web switches).
A HP consultant has recommend of 5406 as our main layer 3 and 1810 series for a basic switch on the edges. Our cabinets are 400mm from front to back so will struggle with some model.
Looking for peoples thoughts on the 1910 and 2530s.
Will need to get my head around setting up VLANs and the layer 3 too.
I have a meeting next week to discuss the schools future plans with VOIP etc so this will determine which switches we may choose.
