Description: HPE 5920AF-24XG Switch - Switch - managed - 24 x 1 Gigabit / 10 Gigabit SFP+ - rack-mountable
Mfr Part #: JG555A
The HPE 5920 Switch Series is a family of low-latency 10GbE data center, top-of-rack (ToR) switches with large deep packet buffers for loss-sensitive applications. Perfect for deployment at the access layer in large and medium sized enterprises. The HPE 5920 Switch Series is great for content delivery, especially to reduce network I/O congestion. Customers will benefit from HPE enhanced IRF capabilities to build robust spine-and-leaf networks supporting server-to-server traffic and network virtualization. Optional Intelligent Management Center (IMC) Software Platform for network management.
- The HPE 5920 Switch Series provides low latency 10 GbE with large data buffers for loss sensitive environments
- The HPE 5920 Switch Series delivers 480 Gbps switching capacity for the most demanding applications
- The HPE 5920 Switch Series delivers IRF < 50 msec convergence time enabling faster application response times
- The HPE 5920 Switch Series simplifies switch management by up to 88% with IRF
- Address Resolution Protocols (ARP): supports static, dynamic, and reverse ARP and ARP proxy
- 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
- Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and VRRP Extended: allow quick failover of router ports
- Layer 2 switching
Address Resolution Protocols (ARP): supports static, dynamic, and reverse ARP and ARP proxy. Flow Control: IEEE 802.3x Flow Control provides intelligent congestion management via PAUSE frames. VLAN support: provides support for 4,096 VLANs based on port, MAC address, IPv4 subnet, protocol, and guest VLAN; supports VLAN mapping. Spanning Tree Protocol (STP): STP (IEEE 802.1D), Rapid STP (RSTP, IEEE 802.1w), and Multiple STP (MSTP, IEEE 802.1s) provide loop avoidance. Ethernet Link Aggregation: IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation of up to 128 groups of 16 ports; support for LACP, LACP Local Forwarding First, and LACP Short-time provide a fast, resilient environment that is ideal for the data center.
- Resiliency and high availability
Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF): HP IRF technology enables an HP FlexFabric to deliver resilient, scalable, and secured data center networks for physical and virtualized environments; up to four 5920 switches can be grouped together in an IRF configuration, which allows them to be configured and managed as a single switch with a single IP address; this simplifies ToR deployment and management, reducing data center deployment and operating expenses
- 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. 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.
Remote configuration and management: is available through a secure command-line interface (CLI) over Telnet and SSH; Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) provides multiple levels of access; Configuration Rollback and multiple configurations on the flash provide ease of operation; remote visibility with sFlow and SNMP v1/v2/v3 is fully supported in HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC). Port mirroring: enables traffic on a port to be simultaneously sent to a network analyzer for monitoring. SNMPv1, v2c, and v3: facilitate centralized discovery, monitoring, and secure management of networking devices. Out-of-band interface: isolates management traffic from user data plane traffic for complete isolation and total reachability, no matter what happens in the data plane. IEEE 802.1AB Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP): advertises and receives management information from adjacent devices on a network, facilitating easy mapping by network management applications.
- Data center optimized
Advanced modular operating system: Comware v7 software's modular design and multiple processes deliver 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. Higher scalability: HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) technology simplifies the architecture of server access networks; up to four HP 5920 switches can be combined to deliver unmatched scalability of virtualized access layer switches and flatter, two-tier FlexFabric networks using IRF, which reduces cost and complexity. High-performance 10GbE switching: enables you to scale your server-edge 10GbE ToR deployments with 24 high-density 10GbE ports delivered in a 1RU design; delivers a 480 Gbps (357.12 Mpps) switching capacity in addition to incorporating 3.6 GB of packet buffers. Ultra-deep packet buffering: provides up to a 3.6 GB packet buffer to reduce network congestion at the I/O that is associated with the heavy use of server virtualization, as well as bursty multimedia, storage applications, and other critical services. TRILL and EVB/VEPA: Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) is supported to increase the scale of enterprise data centers; EVB/VEPA provides connectivity into the virtual environment for a data center-ready environment.
- 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).
- Layer 3 routing
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. Policy-based routing: makes routing decisions based on policies set by the network administrator. Layer 3 IPv6 routing: provides routing of IPv6 at media speed; supports RIPng, OSPFv3, BGP4+ for IPv6, and IS-ISv6. Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and VRRP Extended: allow quick failover of router ports.
