HPE Networking Comware 5960 Switch Series
The HPE Networking Comware 5960 Switch Series is a high-performance, high-density top-of-rack (ToR) switch designed for enterprise data centers, cloud service providers, and telco environments. With multiple connectivity options including 400G and 100G QSFP28 ports, these switches offer exceptional performance and improved power savings. VXLAN/EVPN and DRNI improve scalability and resiliency, while modern software features enable a dynamic and highly available network. HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC) support provides centralized configuration, compliance, policy management, monitoring, and troubleshooting. HPE IMC Orchestrator and Analyzer are also supported for DC fabric orchestration and application telemetry.

- OS Comware v9 offers enhanced software features such as Segment Routing MPLS, SR-V6, PTP/SyncE, egress ACL, egress rate limiting, and others for highly distributed environments.
- Dual, redundant, hot-swappable power supplies maintain a dynamic and highly available network.
- Supports HPE IMC for a consistent network manageability experience while integrating with HPE IMC Orchestrator and Analyzer for data center fabric orchestration, monitoring, and application telemetry.
Consistent and Advanced Data Center Switches with Flexible Connectivity Options
The HPE Networking Comware 5960 Switch Series offers multiple connectivity options of 25/40/100/200/400G with two SKUs—A high-density 32 x 400GbE QSFP-DD switch and a highly flexible 24x100/200G + 4x400G QSFP-DD switch that is backward compatible with the widely used 100G QSFP28 ports.
Supports new-generation OS Comware v9 offering enhanced features such as SR-MPLS, SR-V6, and others for highly distributed environments built on a modular and open architecture; supports containerized deployment; can run third-party software applications.
VXLAN/EVPN for network virtualization and overlay solutions for improved flexibility.
Supports DRNI that combines multiple physical switches into one virtual distributed-relay (DR) system for doubling aggregate bandwidth, fast forwarding, resiliency, and high availability.
High-Performance Data Center Switching
The HPE Networking Comware 5960 Switch Series supports redundant, hot-swappable power modules and varied fan speeds to meet the actual demands, thereby enabling a dynamic and highly available network.
Delivers up to 12.8 Tbps switching capacity for demanding data center applications.
Low latency, under 1 μs delivering increased network throughput.
Uses programmable chips that improve flexibility and aid in network expansion by defining forwarding logic and developing new features as per user needs through simple software upgrades.
Rich Quality of Service (QoS) features
The HPE Networking Comware 5960 Switch Series support Layer 2 to Layer 4 packet filtering for traffic classification based on source MAC address, destination MAC address, source IP address, destination IP address, TCP/UDP port number, protocol type, and VLAN.
Supports committed access rate (CAR) and line rate for anomaly detection and troubleshooting.
Provides extensive traffic prioritization with strict priority (SP) queuing, weighted round robin (WRR), SP+WRR, WFQ, and SP+WFQ.
Improved Visibility and Simplified Management
The HPE Networking Comware 5960 Switch Series supports operations, administration, and maintenance (OAM) for improved manageability.
Increase network visibility by sending real-time information, statistics, and RDMA notifications to the data center operation and maintenance platform through ERSPAN and gRPC protocols.
Support real-time analysis, troubleshooting, and risk warning to improve network performance and provide business continuity.
Uses multiple access methods including SNMPv1/v2c/v3, Telnet, SSH 2.0, SSL, and FTP to monitor essential network functions; and supports events, alarm, history, and statistics group plus a private alarm extension group.
Supports centralized configuration, compliance and policy management, monitoring, and troubleshooting with HPE IMC to provide a consistent network manageability experience; for DC fabric orchestration and application telemetry, this switch supports HPE IMC Orchestrator and Analyzer.
