ProCurve is breathing down Cisco's neck

ProCurve Networking is closing in on Cisco in the Ethernet switch market, according to Infonetics Research.

HP's networking unit outscores Cisco in customer ratings on price-to-performance and the gap between their service and support ratings is closing, according to Infonetics' latest study User Plans for Ethernet Switches: North American Vertical Markets 2007.

The study found that despite coming close, Juniper doesn't yet beat Cisco's score in any of the router criteria posed in the research.

Infonetics interviewed mid and large size companies and featured scorecards with user ratings of vendors on everything from pricing and financial stability to technology roadmaps, and service and support, according to the researcher.
