The HP 3600 SI Switch Series delivers intelligent, resilient performance, security, and reliability for robust switching at the enterprise network edge. The series consists of Fast Ethernet and PoE/PoE+ switches, with features that can accommodate large enterprise and SMB applications.

Secure, resilient connectivity, as well as the latest traffic-prioritization technologies, enhance converged networks. The switches are designed for improved flexibility and scalability.        

Features

Quality of Service (QoS)

Broadcast control: allows limitation of broadcast traffic rate to cut down on unwanted network broadcast traffic
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
Powerful QoS feature: supports the following congestion actions: strict priority (SP) queuing, weighted round robin (WRR), weighted fair queuing (WFQ), and WRED
Traffic policing: supports Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate

Management

Friendly port names: allows assignment of descriptive names to ports
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
Command authorization: leverages HWTACACS to link a custom list of CLI commands to an individual network administrator's login; also provides an audit trail
Secure Web GUI: provides a secure, easy-to-use graphical interface for configuring the module via HTTPS

Connectivity

IPv6: Telnet: for allowing CLI access via IPv6. SNMP: for IPv6 switch management. DNS: for IPv6 host management. DHCP: for auto IPv6 address configuration of a switch.
Auto-MDIX: provides automatic adjustments for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100 and 10/100/1000 ports
Jumbo packet support: supports up to 9216-byte frame size to improve the performance of large data transfers
Gigabit Ethernet uplinks: are dual-personality ports for either 10/100/1000 or mini-GBIC SFP connectivity for increased connectivity flexibility
High-density access: provides up to 48 fixed 10/100BASE-T PoE or non-PoE ports in a Layer 2 or Layer 3 switch

Performance

Nonblocking performance: up to 17.6 Gbps nonblocking switching fabric provides wire-speed switching with up to 13.1 million pps throughput
Gigabit Ethernet interface: provides a connection to the network that eliminates the network as a bottleneck
Hardware-based wirespeed access control lists: feature-rich ACL implementation helps ensure high levels of security and ease of administration without impacting network performance
