The HPE FlexFabric 5940 Switch Series is a family of high-performance and low-latency 10GbE and 40GbE top-of-rack (ToR) data center switches. The 5940 Switch includes 100G uplink technology which is part of the HPE FlexFabric data center solution and is a cornerstone of the FlexNetwork architecture.
The 5940 Switch is suited for deployment at the aggregation or server access layer of large enterprise data centers or at the core layer of medium-sized enterprises. It is optimized for high-performance server connectivity, convergence of Ethernet and storage traffic, and virtual environments.
The HPE FlexFabric 5945 Switch Series are high-density, ultra-low-latency, and top-of-rack (ToR) switches ideally suited for deployment at the aggregation or server access layer of large enterprise data centers. The HPE 5945 is also powerful enough for deployment at the core layer of medium-sized enterprises. With the increase in virtualized applications and server-to-server traffic, customers require spine and ToR switches that can meet their throughput requirements. With the HPE 5945, data centers can now support up to 100GbE per port, allowing high performance server connectivity and the capabilities to handle virtual environments. The HPE FlexFabric 5945 Switch Series provides choices that fit your budget and IT environment by cut-through with ultra-low-latency and wire speed, offering different port density and speeds of 100GbE/40GbE/25GbE/10GbE spine/ToR connectivity.
The HPE FlexFabric 5980 Switch Series is a high-performance and low-latency 10 GbE top-of-rack, data center switch designed to meet the increasing requirements for higher-performance server connectivity, convergence of Ethernet and storage traffic, the capability to handle virtual environments, and low latency. The switch includes 100Gbps uplink technology and is ideally suited for deployment at the aggregation or server access layer of large enterprise data centers or at the core layer of medium-sized enterprises.
The HPE FlexFabric 5710 Switch Series are purpose built top-of-rack data center switches that address the growth of Web, cloud and dense virtualized environments that require high performance 1/10GbE server connectivity, direct attached IP storage networking and GbE out-of-band server management. The HPE 5710 is a family of fixed high-performance and low-latency 1/10GbE top-of-rack data center switches designed for small to mid-size data center rack server connectivity. The HPE FlexFabric 5710 Switch Series provides choices that fit your budget and IT environment by offering different port density and speeds (1/10G) SFP+ or 10BASE-T with 40 and 100GbE high speed uplinks options. Although affordability priced, the HPE FlexFabric 5710 Switch Series offers a comprehensive set of data center features including full support for Layer 2, Layer 3, IPv4 and IPv6 networking protocols at no additional cost for these advanced features.
The HPE FlexFabric 12900E Switch Series is a next-generation modular data center core switch designed to support virtualized data centers and the evolving needs of private and public cloud deployments. It offers unprecedented levels of performance, buffering, scale, and availability with high-density GbE, 10GbE, 40GbE,100GbE and 400GbE connectivity. The switch series includes 1-, 2-, 4-, 8- and 16-slot chassis. Ready for software-defined networking (SDN), the HPE FlexFabric 12900E Switch supports a full Layer 2 and 3 feature set as well as advanced data center features to build resilient scalable fabrics and deliver outstanding convergence times.
The HPE FlexFabric 5900 Switch Series are high density, low latency Top-of-Rack (ToR) switches suited for deployment at the access layer and management network of medium-sized and large enterprise data centers.
To meet the increased demand for virtualization, scalability, and programmability, these switches provide high performance switching with low latency and user friendly OS (Comware v7). Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) helps in simpler, flatter, and agile networks by combining multiple physical switches into a logical device. Network and security features coupled with dual, redundant hot swappable power-supplies provide investment protection, reliability, and availability, and allow advanced chassis power management.
These switches also provide network visibility through multi-vendor network management with HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC).
