HP Launches ProCurve
While ProCurve-branded products were around in the late 1990s as part of HP's ProCurve switch line, it wasn't until 2000 that HP officially solidified its ProCurve division. ProCurve comprises HP's line of networking switches designed to offer high performance at an affordable price. It didn't take ProCurve long to become a household name. Now, ProCurve is a strong competitor to Cisco and has added a host of functionality over the years, including wireless via the acquisition of Colubris.
