Part of the ProCurve Switch 2800 series, the 24-port 2824 contains 20 10/100/1000 ports and four dual-personality ports for 10/100/1000 or mini-GBIC connectivity. Auto-negotiating speeds for each networked user, it ensures that Gigabit-capable users accessing high-bandwidth applications such as converged voice, video and digital imaging tools receive maximum availability from the centre of the network. Aimed at medium and large networks using large bandwidth applications, the Switch 2824 works out at a cost of less than $200 per port. Also available is the Switch 2848, which has 44 10/100/1000 and four dual-personality ports. Both switches are distributed by Ingram Micro and Tech Pacific.
RRP: 2824 $4079; 2848 $7998
