Features

Resilient and Reliable Fast Ethernet Access Layer Switches

The HP 3600 EI Switch Series delivers resiliency, security, and reliability at the enterprise edge with support for advanced Layer 3 and multicast routing.
Designed for increased flexibility and scalability, the 3600 EI Switch Series come with 24- or 48- 10/100 ports and four SFP Gigabit Ethernet ports for stacking and uplinks, a 24-port 100BASE-FX switch with two or four Gigabit Ethernet SFP slots and models with 370W of PoE+ power.
The HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) virtualizes up to nine physical switches into one logical device for simpler, flatter, more agile networks.
Enterprise class features include Dynamic and Multicast Routing, RIP, OSPF, BGP, PIM and ECMP.
Limited Lifetime Warranty 2.0 with 3 years 24x7 phone support and no software licensing required.

Powerful Quality of Service (QoS)

The HP 3600 EI Switch Series supports advanced classifier-based QoS which 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.
Provides extensive traffic prioritization with congestion actions: strict priority (SP), weighted round robin (WRR), weighted fair queuing (WFQ), and weighted random early discard (WRED).

Integrated and Distributed Security Enforcement

The HP 3600 EI Switch Series supports flexible authentication methods including 802.1X, MAC, and Web Authentication for greater security and policy-driven application authentication.
Identity-driven security and access control with automatic VLAN assignment and per-user ACLs allows access to specific network services without risking network security.
Security features include: IP source guard, STP BPDU port protection, and RADIUS/HWTACACS.

Single View of the Network

The HP 3600 EI Switch Series can be seamlessly managed with the optional HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) Software Platform to provide end-to-end network transparency with consistent network experience through comprehensive configuration, compliance and policy management.
RMON and sFlow provides advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events.
