Hewlett Packard Enterprise 5500-48G-4SFP HI Switch w/2 Interface Slots Managed L3 Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) Grey 1U

Quick Overview

5500-48G-4SFP HI Switch with 2 Interface Slots
The HP 5500 HI Switch Series comprises Gigabit Ethernet switches that deliver outstanding resiliency, security, and multiservice support capabilities at the edge layer of data center, large campus, and metro Ethernet networks. The switches can also be used in the core layer of SMB networks.

With Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) support and available dual power supplies, the HP 5500 HI Switch Series can deliver the highest levels of resiliency and manageability. In addition, the PoE+ models provide up to 1440 W of PoE+ power with the dual power supply configuration.

Designed with two fixed 10GbE ports and extension module flexibility, these switches can provide up to six 10GbE uplink or 70 GbE ports. With complete IPv4/IPv6, OpenFlow, and MPLS/VPLS features, the series provides investment protection with an easy transition from IPv4 to IPv6 networks.


Software-defined networking
- OpenFlow: supports OpenFlow 1.0 and 1.3 specifications to enable SDN by allowing separation of the data (packet forwarding) and control (routing decision) paths

Quality of Service (QoS)
- 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
- Traffic policing: supports Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate
- Powerful QoS feature: 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, or remark; supports the following congestion actions: strict priority (SP) queuing, weighted round robin (WRR), weighted fair queuing (WFQ), weighted random early discard (WRED), weighted deficit round robin (WDRR), SP+WDRR, and SP+WFQ
- Storm restraint: allows limitation of broadcast,multicast, and unknown unicast traffic rate to reduce unwanted broadcast traffic on the network

- Friendly port names: allows assignment of descriptive names to ports
- sFlow (RFC 3176): provides scalable ASIC-based wirespeed network monitoring and accounting with no impact on network performance; this allows network operators to gather a variety of sophisticated network statistics and information for capacity planning and real-time network monitoring purposes
- Complete session logging: provides detailed information for problem identification and resolution
- Remote configuration and management: enables configuration and management through a secure Web browser or a CLI located on a remote device
- Manager and operator privilege levels: provides read-only (operator) and read/write (manager) access on CLI and Web browser management interfaces

- Auto-MDIX: provides automatic adjustments for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100 and 10/100/1000 ports
- Packet storm protection: protects against broadcast, multicast, or unicast storms with user-defined thresholds
- Ethernet operations, administration and maintenance (OAM): detects data link layer problems that occurred in the "last mile" using the IEEE 802.3ah OAM standard; monitors the status of the link between two devices
- Flow control: provides back pressure using standard IEEE 802.3x, reducing congestion in heavy traffic situations
- Fixed 10GbE ports: provides two fixed SFP+ ports for a 20 GbE connection to the network without the need for additional extension interface modules
