Hewlett-Packard on Tuesday launched its most aggressive assault on networking giant Cisco: A trade-in promotion to rip and replace existing gear.
Under the terms of the trade-in promotion, HP will shave 20 percent off the list price of its A-Series and E-Series switches for customers who trade in Cisco equipment. The minimum deal size is US$100,000 list price. Specifically, the savings requires a trade-in of Cisco Catalyst 2960/S Series, 3560/E Series/X Series, 3750/E Series/X Series, 4500 E Series, 4900 Series or 6500 Series, as well as Cisco Nexus 5000 Series or 7000 Series switches.
