The HP 3100 SI Switch Series is a low-cost Fast Ethernet switch line that enables organizations to do more with less. Stackable and affordable, this series comprises intelligent, network-manageable Layer 2 Fast Ethernet switches that offer high performance, high port density, and easy installation.

These switches provide 10/100 Mbps downlinks and Gigabit Ethernet uplinks, and offer link aggregation that expands bandwidth and enhances connection reliability. In enterprise networks, they can serve as access devices for 100 Mbps-to-desktop applications.

In metropolitan area networks (MANs) or industry networks, they can connect end users or aggregate low-end switches through 100 Mbps electrical interfaces in the downlink direction, converging at an IP switching center or a large-capacity Layer 3 switch in the uplink direction via a GbE interface or link aggregation.        

Features

Quality of Service (QoS)

Powerful QoS feature: supports the following congestion actions: weighted round robin queuing and HQ+WRR
Broadcast control: allows limitation of broadcast traffic rate to cut down on unwanted network broadcast traffic

Management

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

Connectivity

Auto-MDIX: automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100 and 10/100/1000 ports
Flow control: provides back pressure using standard IEEE 802.3x, reducing congestion in heavy traffic situations
Gigabit Ethernet uplinks: are dual-personality ports for either 10/100/1000 or mini-GBIC SFP connectivity for increased connectivity flexibility

Performance

Gigabit Ethernet interface: provides a connection to the network that eliminates the network as a bottleneck
