Smart, voice-ready HP 5500G Gigabit switches deliver outstanding performance, security, and reliability for robust switching to the enterprise edge. The series consists of Layer 2/3/4 Gigabit Ethernet and PoE switches with advanced features for the most demanding applications. Stackable up to eight units high, one stack can provide up to 448 Gigabit Ethernet ports with 96 Gbps of resilient stacking bandwidth, all centrally managed with high-end enterprise chassis-class availability. The latest traffic prioritization and automatic assignment of VoIP traffic to dedicated VLANs help ensure time-sensitive traffic gets the priority necessary for optimal communications. Further expansion is possible in conjunction with other HP switch series, allowing single IP management for up to 32 devices.
Traffic prioritization (IEEE 802.1p): allows real-time traffic classification into eight priority levels mapped to eight queues.Class of Service (CoS): sets the IEEE 802.1p priority tag based on IP address, IP Type of Service (ToS), Layer 3 protocol, TCP/UDP port number, source port, and DiffServ.Rate limiting: sets per-port ingress enforced maximums and per-port, per-queue guaranteed minimums.Bandwidth shaping: Rate limiting: provides per-port, ingress-based enforced bandwidth maximums. Guaranteed minimums: provides per-port, per-queue egress-based guaranteed bandwidth minimums.
Remote configuration and management: is available through a secure Web browser or a command-line interface (CLI).Manager and operator privilege levels: enable read-only (operator) and read-write (manager) access on CLI and Web browser management interfaces.Management VLAN: segments traffic to and from management interfaces, including CLI/telnet, a Web browser interface, and SNMP.RADIUS accounting support: separates RADIUS accounting server support per SSID; provides detailed session, usage, and billing information for each client activity.IEEE 802.1ab LLDP discovery: advertises and receives management information from adjacent devices on a network.
Auto-MDIX: automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100 and 10/100/1000 ports.Built-in dual stacking ports: built-in 24 Gbps stacking ports provide wire-speed high-bandwidth resilient stacking up to 96 Gbps bandwidth full duplex, for enterprise-class performance and scalability.Optional 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports: add 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections for uplinks or high-bandwidth server connections; flexibly support XENPAK or XFP-style 10 Gigabit transceivers.Optional 8-port SFP module: add up to eight additional wire-speed Gigabit ports for unprecedented Gigabit density in a single 1U enclosure.Dual-personality functionality: four 10/100/1000 ports or SFP slots for optional fiber connectivity such as Gigabit-SX, -LX, or -LH.
