The HP 5900 Switch Series are low-latency 1/10GbE data center top-of-rack (ToR) switches. Perfect for deployment at server access layer in large and medium sized enterprises. These switches may also be used in campus core/distribution layers where higher performance 40GbE connectivity is required with 10GbE links. Virtualized applications and server-to-server traffic require ToR switches that meet the needs for higher-performance server connectivity, convergence, virtual environment support, and low-latency. Optional Intelligent Management Center (IMC) Software Platform for network management.

Product Features
  • Ultra-low-latency and Wire Speed for Demanding Applications
    The HP 5900 Switch Series provides high density 10/100/100/10000BASE-T, or fiber ports for high-performance and flexible deployments. All ports support full L2/L3 features, IPv4/IPv6 dual stack, OpenFlow and TRILL for high scalability and Software-defined Networking (SDN) support. Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) for simpler management, faster re-convergence and business agility.
  • High-Performance Data Center Switching
    The HP 5900 Switch Series delivers 1.28 Tbps switching capacity for the most demanding applications. Supports up to 952 MPPS throughput for data intensive environments. Low latency, under a 1.5 us 10GbE latency, provides increased performance. Four 40GbE QSFP+ ports for blazing fast uplinks.
  • Increased Resilience with Comware 7
    The HP 5900 Switch Series delivers IRF < 50 msec convergence time enabling faster application response times. In Service Software Update (ISSU) enables high availability with updates accomplished without a reboot or power cycle, and is performed in the background.
  • Simplicity and Lower TCO
    The HP 5900 Switch Series simplifies switch management by up to 88% with IRF. No extra hidden cost with simple one license per switch for all operating system features. Automate tedious tasks with SDN and reclaim wasted resources.
  • Layer 2 switching
    MAC-based VLAN: provides granular control and security; uses RADIUS to map a MAC address/user to specific VLANs. Address Resolution Protocol (ARP): supports static, dynamic, and reverse ARP and ARP proxy. Flow Control: IEEE 802.3x Flow Control provides intelligent congestion management via PAUSE frames. Ethernet Link Aggregation: provides IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation of up to 128 groups of 16 ports; support for LACP, LACP Local Forwarding First, and LACP Short-time provides a fast, resilient environment that is ideal for the data center. Spanning Tree Protocol (STP): STP (IEEE 802.1D), Rapid STP (RSTP, IEEE 802.1w), and Multiple STP (MSTP, IEEE 802.1s).
  • Layer 3 services
    Address Resolution Protocol (ARP): determines the MAC address of another IP host in the same subnet; supports static ARPs; gratuitous ARP allows detection of duplicate IP addresses; proxy ARP allows normal ARP operation between subnets or when subnets are separated by a Layer 2 network. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP): simplifies the management of large IP networks and supports client and server; DHCP Relay enables DHCP operation across subnets. Operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) support: provides support for Connectivity Fault Management (IEEE 802.1AG) and Ethernet in the First Mile (IEEE 802.3AH); provides additional monitoring that can be used for fast fault detection and recovery.
  • Layer 3 routing
    Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and VRRP Extended: allow quick failover of router ports. Policy-based routing: makes routing decisions based on policies set by the network administrator. Equal-Cost Multipath (ECMP): enables multiple equal-cost links in a routing environment to increase link redundancy and scale bandwidth. Layer 3 IPv4 routing: provides routing of IPv4 at media speed; supports static routes, RIP and RIPv2, OSPF, BGP, and IS-IS. Open shortest path first (OSPF): delivers faster convergence; uses this link-state routing Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP), which supports ECMP, NSSA, and MD5 authentication for increased security and graceful restart for faster failure recovery.
