Introducing the HP ProCurve 10/100 Hubs
The HP ProCurve 10/100 hubs are low-cost multiport, dual-speed (10- and 100-
Mbps) repeaters that can be used to build high-performance workgroup
networks. These hubs are autosensing and autonegotiating devices that
provide the flexibility of adjusting to different network connection speed
settings. The hub ports always operate at half-duplex.
There are four hub models. Two are managed:
and two are unmanaged:
Throughout this manual, these hubs will be abbreviated as the HP 10/100 hubs,
or they may be described as the Hub 12, Hub 24, Hub 12M, and Hub 24M.
With these hubs you can build a network infrastructure by connecting the hubs
to other hubs, switches, or routers, or you can directly connect computers,
printers, and servers to these hubs to provide shared 10- or 100-Mbps band-
width to those devices.
