HP ProCurve leveraging know-how of Cisco's certified engineers

Accelerated training by ProCurve might be a career advantage for Cisco's engineers.

Amazingly, it appears HP ProCurve is leveraging Cisco's worldwide army of certified engineers to its own advantage. And how is ProCurve doing that? Well, ProCurve's pitch appears quite simple: Since Cisco engineers already have the knowledge needed for networking excellence, ProCurve is leveraging that know-how and expertise by showing Cisco engineers the similarities and differences between Cisco and HP networking products, including product features and configurations as well as areas of interoperability between Cisco and HP equipment when they’re deployed in the same network. ProCurve is accomplishing that objective by offering accelerated training to Cisco CCIEs and accelerated training to Cisco engineers who hold professional level certifications.
