High Density, Advanced Data Center Switches with HPE FlexFabric Network Analytics
The HPE FlexFabric 5944 Switch Series offers a cost effective and high-density ToR switch with 48 x 1/10 GbE BASE-T ports and 6 x 40/100 GbE high speed uplink QSFP28 ports.
Supports HPE FlexFabric Network Analytics that offers real-time telemetry analysis and network operation insight with microburst congestion detection, rich congestion analytics, and buffer congestion statistics.
Support advanced orchestration capabilities, network automation, micro segmentation, and analytical insights with HPE IMC Orchestrator and Analyzer.
VXLAN support for network virtualization and overlay solutions for improved flexibility.
High Performance Data Center Switching
The HPE FlexFabric 5944 Switch Series delivers up to 2.16Tbps switching capacity for demanding data center applications.
Supports up to 1001.7 MPPS throughput for data-intensive environments.
Low latency, under 1µs for 40GbE, delivering increased network throughput.
Supports IEEE 802.1Qbb Priority Flow Control (PFC), Data Center Bridging Exchange (DCBX) and IEEE 802.1Qaz Enhanced Transmission Selection (ETS), providing low latency for converged FCoE environments.
Business Agility and Resilience with HPE Comware
The HPE FlexFabric 5944 Switch Series delivers scalability and enhances reliability of the network with HPE Intelligent Resilient Fabric(IRF) technology. IRF stacking enables uninterrupted L2 switching and L3 forwarding to reduce operational complexity with simpler, flatter, and more agile networks.
Distributed Resilient Network Interconnection (DRNI) enables link aggregation from multiple switches to implement device-level link backup for node redundancy. DRNI also simplifies network topology by virtualizing two physical devices into a logical device.
IRF and In-Service Software Update (ISSU) enable high availability with modular updates accomplished in the background without downtime.
Simplicity and Lower TCO
HPE FlexFabric 5944 Switch Series simplifies switch management by up to 88% with 9-unit Hewlett Packard Enterprise Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF).
Supports centralized configuration, compliance and policy management, monitoring, and troubleshooting with HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC) to provide a consistent network manageability experience.
No hidden costs with a simple one license per switch for all software features.
All switch ports are active and ready to use without the need for activation licenses.
