The HP 2910 al Switch Series consists of four switches: the HP 2910-24G al and 2910-24G-PoE+ al Switches with 24 10/100/1000 ports, and the HP 2910-48G al and 2910-48G-PoE+ al Switches with 48 10/100/1000 ports. Each switch has four dual-personality ports for 10/100/1000 or mini-GBIC connectivity.

In addition, the 2910 al Switch Series supports up to four optional 10 Gigabit Ethernet (CX4 and/or SFP+) ports, thereby offering the most flexible and easy-to-deploy uplinks in its class. Together with static and RIP IPv4 routing, robust security and management, enterprise-class features, free lifetime warranty, and free software updates, the 2910 series is a cost-effective, scalable solution for customers who are building high-performance networks.

These switches can be deployed at enterprise edge and remote branch offices, converged networks, and data center top of rack.        

Features

Quality of Service (QoS)

Traffic prioritization (IEEE 802.1p): allows real-time traffic classification into eight priority levels mapped to eight queues
Layer 4 prioritization: enables prioritization based on TCP/UDP port numbers
Class of Service (CoS): sets the IEEE 802.1p priority tag based on IP address, IP Type of Service (ToS), Layer 3 protocol, TCP/UDP port number, source port, and DiffServ
Rate limiting: per-port ingress enforced maximums

Connectivity

10 Gbps Ethernet connectivity: up to four optional and flexible 10-Gigabit ports (CX4 and/or SFP+), with optional interconnect kit for short-distance connectivity
IPv6: IPv6 host: allows the switches to be managed and deployed at the edge of IPv6 networks . Dual stack (IPv4/IPv6): provides transition mechanism from IPv4 to IPv6; supports connectivity for both protocols. MLD snooping: forwards IPv6 multicast traffic to the appropriate interface; prevents IPv6 multicast traffic from flooding the network.
IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE): provides up to 15.4 W per port to IEEE 802.3af-compliant PoE-powered devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras
IEEE 802.3at Power Over Ethernet Plus: provides up to 30 W per port to IEEE 802.3 for PoE/PoE+ powered devices such as video IP phones, IEEE 802.11n wireless access points, and advanced pan/zoom/tilt security cameras
Pre-standard PoE support: detects and provides power to pre-standard PoE devices; see list of supported devices in the product FAQ at www.hp.com/networking/support

Performance

High-performance architecture: 128 Gbps switching fabric with up to 95 Mpps (24-port switches) and 176 Gbps switching fabric with up to 131 Mpps (48-port switches)
Selectable queue configurations: allow you to increase performance by selecting the number of queues and associated memory buffering that best meet the requirements of your network applications

Resiliency and high availability

IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree: provides high link availability in multiple VLAN environments by allowing multiple spanning trees; provides legacy support for IEEE 802.1d and IEEE 802.1w
IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Protocol (LACP) and HP port trunking: support up to 24 trunks, each with up to 8 links (ports) per trunk
Optional redundant power supply: supplies backup power in case of power failure (note: HP E620 Redundant/External Power Supplyprovides only RPS functionality)
