it's not clear to me what is the future of HPE Comware devices? Expecially for access switches (eg 5130 series).
I've not see any 5140 series or 2,5Gbps/5Gbps on comware devices by HPE. If we are let's said a "comware" based company make still sense buy HPE comware 5130EI devices or comware devices by HPE are dead walking devices (At least for access segment)?

Hi Marco, In the Campus/Branch space, the Comware switches (5130, 5510, etc.) continue to be available, with no end-of-sale date scheduled. That said, there are no plans to introduce follow-on generations of Comware switches for the Campus/Branch... with the focus on our R&D investment and innovation being in the Aruba brand switch portfolio. It is in the Aruba Switch portfolio that you'll find the Mobile First architecture differentiated functionality and the tight integration with the rest of the Aruba software platforms (AirWave, ClearPass, Activate, Central, IntroSpect, etc.). We recommend a migration to the Aruba Switch portfolio as your needs require and timing allows.
