Product Description

HPE JG336A - 5900AF-48XGT-4QSFP+ Switch

The HP 5900 switch series is a family of high-density,ultra-low-latency,top-of-rack (ToR) switches that is part of the HP FlexNetwork architecture's HP FlexFabric solution.

Ideally suited for deployment at the server access layer of large enterprise data centers,the HP 5900 switch series is also powerful enough for deployment at the data center core layer of medium-sized enterprises. With the increase in virtualized applications and server-to-server traffic,customers now require ToR switch innovations 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.

  • Cut-through with ultra low latency and wire speed
  • HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) for virtualization and two-tier architecture
  • High 1/10 GbE ToR port density with 40 GbE uplinks
  • IPv6 support in ToR with full L2/L3 features
  • Convergence ready with DCB,FCoE,and TRILL
Quality of Service (QoS)
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. It 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).

Data center optimized
The HP 5900 switch series enables scaling of the server edge with 1 GbE and 10 GbE ToR deployments to 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 10 GbE ports by using a 40GbE-to-10 GbE splitter cable.

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 is provided with sFlow and SNMP v1/v2/v3,and is fully supported in HP Intelligent Management.

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.

Access control lists (ACLs) provide IP Layer 3 filtering based on source/destination IP address/subnet and source/destination TCP/UDP port number. Secure shell encrypts all transmitted data for secure remote CLI access over IP networks.

LLDP-MED (Media Endpoint Discovery) is a standard extension of LLDP that stores values for parameters such as QoS and VLAN to automatically configure network devices such as IP phones
