Product Review

The HP JW679A offers a substantial capacity for managing both campus and remote access points, supporting up to 32 of each, and can handle up to 2,048 concurrent users/devices, making it well-suited for medium to large networks. However, its limitation to only 5 concurrent PoE+ ports out of 12 might restrict deployments requiring extensive PoE+ devices, despite a generous 150W PoE power budget. Additionally, the absence of an LCD panel for direct interaction could be seen as a drawback for network engineers who prefer immediate visual feedback for management and troubleshooting directly on the device.
