Procurve Line - MVRP Support

Good morning Team,

 

I was wondering if HP had any plans to implement MVRP (802.1ak) open standard in newer firmware. It is a replacement for GVRP that is much less resource intensive and faster. It has been a standard since 2005 so I am suprised that it is not supported. Even Cisco Switches have the option to run it alongside VTP in the latest firwmares.

 

The last Procurve Switch I checked 5406zl with firmware 04/12/15 K.15.15.0012 has no mention of MVRP support.

Hello,

 

There is legal restriction on discussing software roadmap publicly.  Do you work with a HP salesperson?  If so, please send your question to him/her.
