Hewlett Packard (HP) recently announced a number of updated storage and
networking products for small and mid-sized businesses (SMB). As noted in this IT Business Edge report, the company updated its V family of network switches for SMBs with the introduction of the HP V1410 Series, which comes in either eight, 16, or 24 ports operating at 10/100/1000 Mbps.
“Interestingly, the V1410 series also includes a slot for a Kensington Computer Products lock, which is generally utilized to secure portable personal computers. HP says that this feature is critical for some small businesses, as network switches may be kept on a desk in an open area. The V1410 is available now and is priced at $109 and $379 for the eight-port and 24-port model respectively.”
