HP shows its wireless stuff...

HP stumped up a 5300 switch and a wireless LAN module for Techworld to review. There's no big surprises in the review, but Dave Cartwright takes issue with the lack of GUI integration between the wireless module and the switch - and integration is supposed to be the name of the game, at this stage of the enterprise wireless LAN market.

We hear from various people that the HP wireless module is actually from Symbol, but HP insists its theirs. The lack of integration would suggest it's been bought in. I doubt there are any clues in the screenshot, but if anyone wants to study it, I'd be interested in comments. I've checked the MAC addresses, and they're a range owned by HP.
