Hi,

1) I saw in a company; they just bought the new HP Procurve 5412
2) The consultant said that they would install the Firmware and needed the Reboot
3) My questions: i) What does it mean "by installing the firmware"?, ii) How to do it or what ios commands will be used?
4) Thank you

When I upgrade firmware (software on switch) I prefer to use TFTP (instead of using serial interface)
So from  HP's homepage search and download latest software for switch to PC:
https://h10145.www1.hp.com/Downloads/SoftwareReleases.aspx?ProductNumber=J8700A&lang=en,en&cc=us,us&prodSeriesId=1827663
from here there will be a link to release notes : http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02732503/c02732503.pdf 
at page 3 you will find syntax and examples.
Of cause you should read release notes. There could be important info.
Fire up TFTP(fx solarwinds) on PC and copy to switch.
Boot & cross fingers.

Syntax:
show flash (what is currenly installed)
copy tftp flash <ip-address> <remote-os-file> [ < primary | secondary > ] (to copy from PC to switch)
boot system flash [ < primary | secondary > ] (to run the new software)

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
