The HP 3600 EI Switch Series delivers premium levels of intelligent and resilient performance, security, and reliability for robust switching at the enterprise network edge. The series consists of Layer 3 Fast Ethernet and PoE/PoE+ switches, with advanced features that can accommodate the most demanding applications.
Secure, resilient connectivity and the latest traffic-prioritization technologies enhance converged networks. Designed for increased flexibility and scalability, HP 3600 EI series switches come with 24 or 48 10/100 ports, four active SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports for stacking and uplinks, and a 24-port 100BASE-FX switch with two or four Gigabit Ethernet SFP slots.
Quality of Service (QoS)
Broadcast control: allows limitation of broadcast traffic rate to cut down on unwanted network broadcast traffic
Advanced classifier-based QoS: classifies traffic using multiple match criteria based on Layer 2, 3, and 4 information; applies QoS policies such as setting priority level and rate limit to selected traffic on a per-port or per-VLAN basis
Powerful QoS feature: supports the following congestion actions: strict priority (SP) queuing, weighted round robin (WRR), weighted fair queuing (WFQ), and WRED
Traffic policing: supports Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate
RRPP: enables ultra high levels of network resiliency, with failover times of less than 50 ms
Friendly port names: allows assignment of descriptive names to ports
Remote configuration and management: enables configuration and management through a secure Web browser or a CLI located on a remote device
Manager and operator privilege levels: provides read-only (operator) and read/write (manager) access on CLI and Web browser management interfaces
Command authorization: leverages HWTACACS to link a custom list of CLI commands to an individual network administrator's login; also provides an audit trail
Secure Web GUI: provides a secure, easy-to-use graphical interface for configuring the module via HTTPS
IPv6: Telnet: for allowing CLI access via IPv6. SNMP: for IPv6 switch management. DNS: for IPv6 host management. DHCP: for auto IPv6 address configuration of a switch.
Auto-MDIX: provides automatic adjustments for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100 and 10/100/1000 ports
Jumbo packet support: supports up to 9216-byte frame size to improve the performance of large data transfers
Gigabit Ethernet uplinks: are dual-personality ports for either 10/100/1000 or mini-GBIC SFP connectivity for increased connectivity flexibility
High-density access: provides up to 48 fixed 10/100BASE-T PoE or non-PoE ports or 24 SFP 100BASE-X ports in a Layer 2/Layer 3 switch
Nonblocking performance: up to 17.6 Gbps nonblocking switching fabric provides wire-speed switching with up to 13.1 million pps throughput
Gigabit Ethernet interface: provides a connection to the network that eliminates the network as a bottleneck
Hardware-based wirespeed access control lists: feature-rich ACL implementation helps ensure high levels of security and ease of administration without impacting network performance
