The HP 5830 Switch Series provides versatility and high performance in 10/100/1000 top-of-rack, data center switches with large, deep packet buffers for loss-sensitive applications. With high-density 48 or 96 ports for server connectivity, you can scale your deployments and benefit from the 10GbE uplinks.

While Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) reduces management complexities by up to 75%, it also delivers <50 msec convergence time. The 5830 Switch Series delivers high performance and lower total cost ownership (TCO), while providing business resilience and high availability.

What's new

  • New modular design with 1U and 2U form factors offering 2 modules and four modules respectively.
  • IRF support of up to nine switches simplifies management by up to 88%.
  • OpenFlow and SDN automate manual tasks and speed service delivery.
