HP 5820 switch series, namely HP FlexFabric 5820 switch series, is designed to support 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) networks. The extensible embedded application capabilities enable these switches to integrate services into the network, consolidating devices and appliances to simplify deployment and reduce power consumption and rack space. Also, using the right optical components will facilitate the high performance of the switches. And this article will provide the optical solutions such as fiber optic transceivers and direct attach cables that are supported by HP 5820 switch series.
Overview of HP 5820 Switch Series
The HP 5820 switch series provides a versatile, high-performance and 1/10GbE top-of-rack (ToR) data center switch architecture with deployment flexibility. It supports advanced features by delivering a unique combination of unmatched 10 GbE, high-availability architecture, full layer 2/3 dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 and line-rate, low-latency performance on all ports. HP 5820 switches can be used in high-performance and high-density building or department cores as a part of a consolidated network, or be used in campus and data center networks for the high-performance layer 3, 10 GbE aggregation. The total switching capacity of HP 5820 switch series can reach up to 488 Gbps supporting as much as 363mpps throughput. The models offer 14 or 24 ports for high-performance applications with RJ45, SFP+ server connectivity and expansion slot.
Models of HP 5820 Switch Series
There are three models of HP 5820 switch series including HP 5820-14XG-SFP+ switch (JC106B), HP 5820-24XG-SFP+ switch (JC102B) and HP 5820AF-24XG switch (JG219B). These switch models are hot-swappable and support cut-through switching for very low latency. The biggest difference is their disposition of I/O ports.
