Mesh Stacking and Power at the Edge

The HP 3800 Switch Series uses a powerful HP Networking ASIC providing very low latency, increased packet buffering, and adaptive power consumption.The HP 3800 Switch Series uses a powerful HP Networking ASIC providing very low latency, increased packet buffering, and adaptive power consumption.
Meshed stacking technology delivers high-performance stacking with up to 336 Gb/s of stacking throughput and increased resiliency.
Up to ten 3800 switches can be stacked in a ring topology or up to five can be stacking in a mesh topology.
Selectable queue configurations enables increased performance by selecting the number of queues and associated memory buffering that best meet the requirements of the network applications.

Resiliency and High Availability

The HP 3800 Switch Series supports virtual router redundancy protocol (VRRP) allowing groups of two routers to dynamically back each other up to create highly available router environments in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
Uninterrupted switching and routing for improved support of applications such as unified communications and enhanced L3 high availability.
Dual hot-swappable power supplies provide uninterrupted power and allow swapping of modules on the fly to reduce impact on the network availability. Provides up to 1080W PoE+ power.

Robust Security and Quality of Service

The HP 3800 Switch Series includes a robust set of security and quality of services features to build a network that meets ever-changing corporate policies and compliances.
Flexible authentication options include Local MAC Authentication, 802.1X, MAC and Web Authentication modes, delivering greater security and policy-driven application authentication.
Advanced distributed denial of service (DDOS) protection, such as DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard, and ARP Protection, and flexible traffic controls, such as policy-based routing, QoS, and ACLs, to manage end-to-end application priorities.
Powerful multilevel-access security controls, such as varying security management login, RADIUS/TACACS+, and SSH to increase security and control change management access.
The HP 3800 Switch Series can be seamlessly managed with HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) software to provide end-to-end network transparency with consistent network experience through comprehensive configuration, compliance and policy management.
