How cool are these switches ?? just did a firmware upgrade on one and you can see all the lights on the front do a little dance in sequence. How dandy is that ?
We've got hundreds of these switches now at the college.
I'm easily pleased......... by looks of it.

lol we all love it at some point - however I class myself as somewhat strange because if I'm directly working on a switch or server in a switch room or server room, I find it kinda easy to mellow out to the sound of whirring fans. If you know what I mean ??

I too like the Nortel 5510, I look after 32 5510-48T in or DC and DR centers split in to stacks, I have 1 5510-24t, could you tell me what firmware level you are running ? I want to add the 24 port in to a stack of 48 ports, but I think the firmware is too old, The 48 port units are at 6.1.28.028, But unless you have a support contract with Nortel ( Avaya ) you can not access the latest fw,
The other thing I like is that is you have a stack and upgrade the Base, the rest of the stack gets it too, so now one by one upgrades

lol we have alot more than 32, we only have 48-port switches, I'm not sure what version the firmware is as I haven't done it in a while - they are up-to-date though but the other guy updated them - I don't do it very often! These are quite frankly the best switches I've come across the build quality is bang on - we have them at every site we have and have never had one go down on us. We do have a support contract with Avaya but I don't deal with that.- the update procedure is great especially when you do a whole stack at once, very handy when you have multiple stacks of them.

ProCurve (2600s at least, they're the only HPs I've ever bothered with) do it too...
