HP 3600-24-PoE SI Switch
The HP A3600 SI Switch Series delivers intelligent, resilient performance, security, and reliability for robust switching at the enterprise network edge. The series consists of Fast Ethernet and PoE switches, with features that can accommodate large enterprise and SMB applications. Secure, resilient connectivity, as well as the latest traffic-prioritization technologies enhance converged networks. The switches are designed for improved flexibility and scalability.
Broadcast control:allows limitation of broadcast traffic rate to cut down on unwanted broadcast traffic on the network. Advanced classifier-based QoS: classifies traffic using multiple match criteria based on Layer 2, 3, and 4 information; applies QoS policies such as setting priority level and rate limit to selected traffic on a per-port or per-VLAN basis. Powerful QoS feature: supports the following congestion actions: strict priority (SP) queuing, weighted round robin (WRR), WFQ, and WRED. Traffic policing: supports Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate.
Friendly port names: allow assignment of descriptive names to ports. Remote configuration and management: is available through a secure Web browser or a command-line interface (CLI). Manager and operator privilege levels: enable read-only (operator) and read-write (manager) access on CLI and Web browser management interfaces. Command authorization: leverages HWTACACS to link a custom list of CLI commands to an individual network administrator's login; also provides an audit trail. Secure Web GUI: provides a secure, easy-to-use graphical interface for configuring the module via HTTPS.
Auto-MDIX: automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100 and 10/100/1000 ports. Jumbo packet support: supports up to 9216-byte frame size to improve performance of large data transfers. Gigabit uplinks: dual-personality ports for either 10/100/1000 or mini-GBIC SFP connectivity for increased connectivity flexibility. High-density access: provides up to 48 fixed 10/100BASE-T PoE or non-PoE ports in a Layer 2/Layer 3 switch. IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support: simplifies deployment and dramatically reduces installation costs by helping to eliminate the time and cost involved in supplying local power at each access point location.
Nonblocking performance: up to 17.6 Gbps nonblocking switching fabric provides wire-speed intra- and inter-module switching with up to 11.78 million pps throughput. Gigabit Ethernet interface: provides a connection to the network that eliminates the network as a bottleneck. Hardware-based wire-speed access control lists: feature-rich ACL implementation helps ensure high levels of security and ease of administration without impacting network performance.
Separate data and control paths: keeps control separated from services and keeps service processing isolated; increases security and performance. External redundant power supply: provides high reliability. Smart link: allows 50 ms failover between links. Spanning Tree/MSTP, RSTP: provides redundant links while preventing network loops. Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) Technology: allows customers to build a simple and reliable architecture, reducing the number of IP addresses and configuration files to manage; RVSF addresses the OPEX problem that many customers are facing by simplifying the task of managing multiple devices, as well as eliminates the need for legacy protocols like STP, RSTP, MSPT, and VRRP, providing an active-active mode of operation for both Layer 2 and Layer 3 at every layer in the network.
16K MAC address table: provides access to many Layer 2 devices. VLAN support and tagging: support IEEE 802.1Q, with 4094 simultaneous VLAN IDs. GARP VLAN Registration Protocol (GVRP): allows automatic learning and dynamic assignment of VLANs. IEEE 802.1ad QinQ and Selective QinQ: increase the scalability of an Ethernet network by providing a hierarchical structure; connect multiple LANs on a high-speed campus or metro network. Gigabit Ethernet port aggregation: allows grouping of ports to increase overall data throughput to a remote device.
