I WANT YOUR EXPERT ADVICE FOR THE ABOVE MENTIONE HP SOLUTION IS IT GOOD ENOUGH OR ONE OF THE BEST SOLUTION,  HERE MY CONSIDERATION IS I WANT TO MAKE SURE THERE IS NO SECURITY OR COMPATIBLE ISSUE IF GO WITH VOIP FROM MITEL/NORTEL/CISCO/AVAYA AND CONNECTING with cisco/juniper/dlink/sonic firewall and routers.

Other way around, isn't it? You want to know  that if you install the HP or indeed ANY switches, and you activly use things like VLAN tagging, QOS tagging, etc., that the firewalls and routers you choose to add to the network will also recognise these systems.

With VOIP as a consideration, your main requirements will be

- PoE switches to power the phones
- QOS or VLAN to separate voice and non-voice traffic and prioritise the former

But... these are all pretty standard thesee days. Certainly with Juniper, Cisco and Sonicwall (Dlink firewalls?)

I have used HP switch gear for several years.  I run an enterprise with over 10,000 nodes in 30 buildings.  I use the HP 5400 series along with the 5300 series and several others.  I use most of the switches you mentioned in your list.  I also use CIsco routers and catalist switches.  In short I have several different technologies from DSL to WiMAX to Metro-Ethernet.  I use a Sonic Wall for VPN and security.  I run Cisco VoIP in the entire enterprise.

I would put HP switch gear up against any Cisco, Juniper or Foundry switch any day.  The only thing Cisco currently has over HP is they have more interface types (vocie in particular) that you can use with their catalyst 6500 series for example.  However that is changing.  But when you talk about moving packets, HP gives you more bang for the buck.  In addition, all of my 5400 and 5300 switches have been running constantly for years without a single problem.  I have hot-swaped blades with most of them when I need to add or upgrade ports.  QoS and VLAN tagging are standard.  Because of Metro-Ethernet I have been able to do away with several of my Cisco routers and use the HP 5400's and 5300's as routers.  The result has been a faster network.

Heck... I sound like a bloody commercial...

We use HP Procurve exclusively for switches.  No charge for software updates and lifetime hardware warranty.   Add hardware and software support into the cost of Cisco and the price difference is dramatic.   cscocsco has a network closer to yours and is right on with his response.
