HP PS1810 Switch Series devices are smart-managed, fixed-configuration Gigabit Layer 2 switches that are purpose built to work with HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers. They are designed for small businesses looking for key networking features in an easy-to-administer solution.
The series includes 8- and 24-port Gigabit switch models. 24 port model include SFP ports for fiber connectivity.
8 port model has an innovative design that allows it to be stacke on the HP Proliant MicroServer Gen8. Both models have fanless design making them ideal for office deployments.
The 8-port Gigabit Ethernet model can optionally be powered by an upstream Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch. Key feature is the auto-discovery and monitoring of HP Proliant Servers.
Customizable features include VLANs, Spanning Tree, and link aggregation trunking. The 8- and 24-port models include the latest energy-saving capabilities—Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) and idle-port power down All come with a lifetime warranty.
HP Proliant Server Dashboard: enables autodiscovery of HP ProLiant Gen8 servers in the network; provides up-to-date server health status for up to ten monitored servers
Simple web management: allows easy management of device by even nontechnical users with its intuitive Web GUI
Secure web GUI: provides a secure, easy-to-use graphical interface for configuring the module via HTTPS
SNMPv1, v2c: enables devices to be discovered and monitored from an SNMP management station
Dual flash images: provides independent primary and secondary operating system files for backup while upgrading
Auto-MDI/MDIX: adjusts automatically for straight-through or crossover cables on all ports
Packet storm protection: protects against broadcast, multicast, or unicast storms with user-defined thresholds
IEEE 802.3af PoE-powered device option: obtains power provided by a standard PoE device connected to Port 1; deploy the switch wherever an Ethernet cable can reach as a power outlet is not needed (8-port model only)
SFP ports for fiber connectivity: provides fiber connections for uplinks and other connections across longer distances than what copper cabling can support; "true" SFP ports operate in addition to available copper Ethernet ports providing a higher total numer of available ports (24-port model only)
Layer 2 switching
VLAN support and tagging: supports up to 64 port-based VLANs and dynamic configuration of IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tagging, providing security between workgroups
Jumbo packet support: improves the performance of large data transfers; supports frame size of up to 9220-bytes
Resiliency and high availability
IEEE 802.1D Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) and IEEE 802.1W Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP; v2 models): provides redundant links while preventing network loops
Link Aggregation (trunking or bonding): groups ports together automatically using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) or manually, to form an ultra-high-bandwidth connection to the server or network backbone; bonds together two NIC ports on the ProLiant MicroServer doubling the speed of services to the server
