The perks associated with the HP ProCurve 2920 Switch line include a warranty from the manufacturer, affordability over the competition, and the fact that HP is gaining market share in the networking space. This switch series is a cost-effective, scalable solution for those with high-performance networks and is great for managing enterprises.

Features and Capabilities

These switches are designed for optimal connectivity, energy-efficient performance, and next-level software networking. In the 2920 Switch series, the five options are: the HP 2920-24G and 2920-24G-PoE+ Switches with 24 10/100/1000 ports; and the HP 2920-48G, 2920-48G-PoE+, and 2920-48G 740W PoE+ Switches with 48 10/100/1000 ports.
