My office infrastructure is currently configured with HP Procurve switches. They are interconnected with 10Gbps fibre. All the SFP+ Ports are in use on all the switches.
I am looking at buying a new switch that has only SFP+ ports to use as our core switch and in which all our switches will plug in to. I've read that the SFP+ Protocol is standardized.
Does this mean I could buy a Cisco core switch and have the HP switches terminate into without any sort of issues? I have people tell me that trying to mix manufacturers in this sort of configuration is a bad idea and that things will probably not work properly.
