The HP 5830AF Switch Series is a family of high-density 1 GbE top-of-rack data center and campus switches that are a part of the HP FlexFabric solution module of the HP FlexNetwork architecture. The two models, the 5830AF-48G and 5830AF-96G switches, are ideally suited for deployments at the server access layer in medium-sized and large enterprise data centers and campus networks.

The HP 5830AF-48G Switch delivers 48 1-GbE ports and up to four 10-GbE ports in a space-saving 1RU package, while the HP 5830AF-96G Switch provides an industry-leading 96 1-GbE ports and up to 10 10-GbE uplink ports in a 2RU form factor.

Features

Quality of Service (QoS)

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, 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), SP+WRR, and SP+WFQ

Management

sFlow (RFC 3176): provides scalable ASIC-based wire-speed 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
Remote configuration and management: is available through a secure Web browser or a 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
Multiple configuration files: can be stored to the flash image

Connectivity

Jumbo frames: on Gigabit Ethernet and 10-Gigabit ports, jumbo frames allow high-performance remote backup and disaster-recovery services
Auto-MDIX: automatically adjusts forstraight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100/1000 ports
IPv6 native support: IPv6 host: enables switches to be managed and deployed at the IPv6 network's edge. Dual stack (IPv4 & IPv6): transitions from IPv4 to IPv6, supporting connectivity for both protocols. Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) snooping: IPv6 multicast traffic to the appropriate interface. IPv6 ACL/QoS: supports ACL and QoS for IPv6 network traffic, preventing traffic flooding. IPv6 routing: supports IPv6 static routes, RIP, BGP4+v6, IS-ISv6, and OSPF routing protocols.

Performance

Extraordinarily high port density: the HP 5830AF-96G Switch is a single box-type switch that can provide 96 GbE ports and 10 10-GbE ports simultaneously with full line-rate switching and forwarding
Ultradeep packet buffering: provides up to a 3GB packet buffer to help eliminate network congestion at the I/O associated with heavy use of server virtualization, as well as bursty multimedia, storage applications, and other critical services
Hardware-based wire-speed access control lists (ACLs): feature-rich ACL implementation (TCAM-based) helps provide high levels of security and ease of administration without impacting network performance
Local Address Resolution Protocol (ARP): ARP fast reply feature provides an outstanding utilization of air-interface resources by first issuing an ARP request locally before the AP broadcasts over the radio interface
