Mfr Part #: JG554A

MSRP: $21,390.00

The HP 5900 switch series is a family of high-density 10 GbE ultra-low latency top-of-rack (ToR) switches. The 5900 series is part of the HP FlexFabric solution module of the HP FlexNetwork architecture. The 5900 switch is ideally suited for deployment at the server access layer of large enterprise data centers. It is also designed for deployment at the data center core layer of medium-sized enterprises. With the increase in virtualized applications and server-to-server traffic, customers require ToR switch that will meet their needs for higher-performance server connectivity, convergence of Ethernet and storage traffic, the capability to handle virtual environments, and ultra-low latency all in a single device.

Product Features
  • Data center optimized
    Higher scalability: HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) technology simplifies the architecture of server access networks; up to four HP 5900 switches can be combined to deliver unmatched scalability of virtualized access layer switches and flatter two-tier networks using IRF, which reduces cost and complexity. Flexible high port density: the HP 5900 Switch Series enables scaling of the server edge with 1 GbE and 10GbE ToR deployments to new heights with high-density 48-port solutions delivered in a 1RU design; the high server port density is backed by 40 GbE QSFP+ uplinks to deliver the availability of needed bandwidth for demanding applications; each 40 GbE QSFP+ port can also be configured as four 10GbE ports by using a 40-GbE-to-10GbE splitter cable. High-performance switching: cut-through and nonblocking architecture delivers low latency (~1 microsecond for 10GbE) for very demanding enterprise applications; the switch delivers high-performance switching capacity and wire-speed packet forwarding. TRILL and EVB/VEPA: TRansparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) is supported to increase the scale of enterprise data centers; Edge Virtual Bridging with Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregator (EVB/VEPA) provides connectivity into the virtual environment for a data center-ready environment. Advanced modular operating system: Comware v7 software's modular design and multiple processes bring native high stability, independent process monitoring, and restart; the OS also allows individual software modules to be upgraded for higher availability and supports enhanced serviceability functions like hitless software upgrades with single-chassis ISSU.
  • Layer 3 routing
    Policy-based routing: makes routing decisions based on policies set by the network administrator. Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and VRRP Extended: allow quick failover of router ports. Layer 3 IPv4 routing: provides routing of IPv4 at media speed; supports static routes, RIP and RIPv2, OSPF, BGP, and IS-IS. Equal-Cost Multipath (ECMP): enables multiple equal-cost links in a routing environment to increase link redundancy and scale bandwidth. 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.
  • Quality of Service (QoS)
    Powerful QoS features: Flexible classification: creates traffic classes based on access control lists (ACLs), IEEE 802.1p precedence, IP, and DSCP or Type of Service (ToS) precedence; supports filter, redirect, mirror, remark, and logging. Feature support: provides support for Strict Priority Queuing (SP), Weighted Fair Queuing (WFQ), Weighted Deficit Round Robin (WDRR), SP+WDRR together, configurable buffers, Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN), and Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED).
  • Manageability
    sFlow (RFC 3176): provides wire-speed traffic accounting and monitoring. Full-featured console: provides complete control of the switch with a familiar CLI. Multiple configuration files: allow multiple configuration files to be stored to a flash image. Troubleshooting: Ingress and egress port monitoring: enable network problem solving. Traceroute and ping: enable testing of network connectivity. SNMP v1, v2c and v3: facilitate centralized discovery, monitoring, and secure management of networking devices.
  • Layer 2 switching
    Flow Control: IEEE 802.3x Flow Control provides intelligent congestion management via PAUSE frames. Spanning Tree Protocol (STP): STP (IEEE 802.1D), Rapid STP (RSTP, IEEE 802.1w), and Multiple STP (MSTP, IEEE 802.1s). 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. 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.
  • Resiliency and high availability
    HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) technology: enables an HP FlexFabric to deliver resilient, scalable, and secured data center networks for physical and virtualized environments; groups up to four HP 5900 switches in an IRF configuration, allowing them to be configured and managed as a single switch with a single IP address; simplifies ToR deployment and management, reducing data center deployment and operating expenses. Hitless patch upgrades: allows patches and new service features to be installed without restarting the equipment, increasing network uptime and facilitating maintenance. IEEE 802.1w Rapid Convergence Spanning Tree Protocol: increases network uptime through faster recovery from failed links. IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree: provides high link availability in multiple VLAN environments by allowing multiple spanning trees. Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP): allows groups of two routers to dynamically back each other up to create highly available routed environments.
  • Layer 3 services
    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. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP): simplifies the management of large IP networks and supports client and server; DHCP Relay enables DHCP operation across subnets. 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.
