The HP 5120 EI Switch Series is comprised of Gigabit Ethernet
switches that support static Layer 3 routing, diversified services,
and IPv6 forwarding, as well as provide up to four 10-Gigabit
Ethernet (10 GbE) extended interfaces. Unique Intelligent Resilient
Framework (IRF) technology creates a virtual fabric by managing
several switches as one logical device, which increases network
resilience, performance, and availability while reducing
operational complexity. These switches provide Gigabit Ethernet
access and can be used at the edge of a network or to connect
server clusters in data centers. High scalability provides
investment protection with two expansion slots, each of which can
support two-port 10 GbE expansion modules. High availability,
simplified management, and comprehensive security control policies
are among the key features that distinguish this series.
Quality of Service (QoS)
• Broadcast control: allows limitation of broadcast traffic
rate to cut down on unwanted network broadcast traffic
• Friendly port names: allows assignment of descriptive names
• Auto-MDIX: automatically adjusts for straight-through or
crossover cables on all 10/100/1000 ports
• Nonblocking architecture: up to 192 Gbps nonblocking
switching fabric provides wire-speed switching with up to 143
million pps throughput
Resiliency and high availability
• Separate data and control paths: separates control from
services and keeps service processing isolated; increases security
Layer 2 switching
• 16K MAC address table: provides access to many Layer 2
Layer 3 services
• Address Resolution Protocol (ARP): determines the MAC
address of another IP host in the same subnet; supports static
ARPs; gratuitous ARP allows detection of duplicate IP addresses;
proxy ARP allows normal ARP operation between subnets or when
subnets are separated by a Layer 2 network
