The HP 7500 Switch Series are versatile, high performance modular switches designed to meet the evolving needs of integrated services networks. They can be deployed at the enterprise LAN core, aggregation layer and wiring closet edge and offer 40GbE connectivity, cost-effective wire-speed 10GbE ports, high-density PoE/PoE+, and advanced functionality with service modules.

With HP Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) technology, the HP 7500 Switch Series can be virtualized across four chassis with a single management interface—enabling flatter, more agile networks.

What's new

  • Full Layer 3, MPLS, and VXLAN for a L2 overlay in an L3 everywhere campus network.
  • Powerful switching capacity of up to 1,920 Gbps.
  • Compact density with up to 160 ports of 10GbE or 480 ports of PoE/PoE+.
  • Advanced security features include 802.1X, MAC Authentication, and MACsec.


Versatile Switch Delivers Intelligent, Real-time Services for the Campus

The HP 7500 Switch Series are designed for the evolving network demands of a campus LAN core, aggregation, and access layer. They deliver up to 160 Gbps of switching capacity per slot and up to 1500 W for PoE/PoE+ power per slot for mission-critical applications and high-speed communications.

Broad offering of interfaces include 40GbE connectivity, cost-effective wire-speed 10GbE and high-density PoE/PoE+ of up to 480 PoE/PoE+ ports for IP phones, cameras, and future high-density Internet of Things (IoT) deployments.

Includes advanced hardware feature sets such as MACsec for greater end-point or switch-to-switch security and VXLAN to support flexible connections over a layer 3 everywhere campus network.

No hidden costs with license-free software with Layer 2/3 feature set including IPv6, MPLS functionality, and robust QoS.

Scalable Architecture for a High-Performance Network

The HP 7500 Switch Series supports a maximum of 1,920 Gb/s switching capacity with a 2.4 Tbps backplane, delivering enhanced performance and future expansion capability.

Delivers up to 966 MPPS of packet performance with dual fabrics performing all switching and routing functions in the I/O modules, meeting current and future demands of bandwidth-intensive applications.

HP IRF allows up to four 7500 Switch Series chassis to be virtualized into a single switching/routing fabric that improves network performance and resiliency, that simplifies deployment and management.

Open application architecture enables fully integrated high-performance application-specific modules, such as a 20 Gbps Firewall module, providing advanced security.

Robust Security and Quality of Service (QoS) Controls

The HP 7500 Switch Series includes a robust set of security and quality of service features to build a trusted network that meets your ever-changing corporate policies and compliances.

Flexible authentication options include 802.1X, MAC and Web Authentication, and Endpoint Admission Defense, providing you with 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, are available to manage end-to-end application priorities.

Included with the 7500 Switch Series are a powerful set of multilevel-access security controls, such as varying security management login, RADIUS, SSH, TACACS/TACACS+, to protect and control change management access.

Single Management View of the Network

The HP 7500 Switch Series can be seamlessly managed with Intelligent Management Center (IMC) software which provides end-to-end network transparency with consistent network experience through comprehensive configuration, compliance and policy management.

Supports port and traffic mirroring, RMON and sFlow.
