Features

Scalable and Secure Access Layer Switches

The HP 5120 EI Switch Series supports stacking, static layer 3 routing, PoE+, ACLs, and IPv6. HP Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) technology creates a virtual fabric which increases network resilience, performance, and availability while reducing operational complexity.

HP 4-chassis IRF for simpler, flatter, more agile networks, and flexible deployment with longer-distance stacking between closets up to 70 km.

Modular 10GbE uplinks (CX4, SFP+ and 10GBASE-T), stacking and power supplies allow for future upgradability.

External redundant power supply for increased reliability.

Limited Lifetime Warranty 2.0 with 3 years 24x7 phone support and no software licensing required.

Powerful Quality of Service (QoS)

The HP 5120 EI Switch Series supports advanced, classifier-based QoS which directs traffic using multiple match criteria based on Layer 2, 3, and 4 information. The switches apply QoS policies such as setting priority level and rate limit to selected traffic on a port, VLAN, or whole switch.

Traffic prioritization with supported congestion actions include: strict priority (SP) queuing, weighted round robin (WRR), SP+WRR, and traffic policing with Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate.

Comprehensive Security Control

The HP 5120 EI Switch Series supports flexible authentication methods including 802.1X, and MAC and Web for greater policy-driven application security.

This series uses access control lists (ACLs) to provide IP Layer 2 to Layer 4 traffic filtering. And it supports global ACL, VLAN ACL, port ACL, and IPv6 ACL.

Source-port filtering, RADIUS/TACACS+, SSL, Port Security, and MAC address lockout deliver enhanced security.

Single View of the Network

The HP 5120 EI Switch Series can be seamlessly managed with HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) to provide end-to-end network transparency with consistent network experience through comprehensive configuration, compliance and policy management.

RMON and sFlow provide advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events.
