The HP 2530 Switch Series consists of 12 fully managed Layer 2 edge
switches that deliver cost-effective, reliable, secure, and
easy-to-use connectivity to business networks. Designed for
entry-level to midsize enterprise networks, these Gigabit and Fast
Ethernet switches deliver full Layer 2 capabilities with optional
PoE+, enhanced access security, traffic prioritization, and IPv6
The HP 2530 Switch Series offers uplink flexibility with four
Gigabit Ethernet uplinks on all 24- and 48-port models. Gigabit
Ethernet uplinks are four small form-factor pluggable (SFP) slots
for fiber connectivity on the 24- and 48-port Gigabit Ethernet
The Fast Ethernet 24- and 48-port models have two SFPs and two
RJ-45 Gigabit uplinks. The compact and fanless 8-port switches
offer additional flexibility with two dual-personality ports that
can be used as either RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet or SFP ports.
For customers implementing Power over Ethernet for voice, video, or
wireless deployments, the HP 2530 PoE+ switches are IEEE 802.3af
and IEEE 802.3at compliant with up to 30 W per port. The switch
series is easy to use, deploy, and manage via SNMP, CLI, and Web
It offers flexible wall, table, and rack mounting; quiet operation
with fanless and variable speed fan models; and improved power
savings, with features such as IEEE 802.3 az (Energy Efficient
Ethernet). These switches include a lifetime warranty, as well as
all software releases and technical phone support.
Quality of Service (QoS)
- Traffic prioritization (IEEE 802.1p): allows real-time traffic
classification with support for eight priority levels mapped to
either two or four queues; uses weighted deficit round robin (WDRR)
or strict priority (SP)
- Simplified QoS configuration: Port-based: prioritizes traffic by
specifying a port and priority level. VLAN-based: prioritizes
traffic by specifying a VLAN and priority level.
- Class of Service (CoS): sets the IEEE 802.1p priority tag based
on IP address, IP Type of Service (ToS), Layer 3 protocol, TCP/UDP
port number, source port, and DiffServ
- Rate limiting: sets per-port ingress enforced maximums for all
ingressed traffic or for broadcast, multicast, or unknown
- Layer 4 prioritization: enables prioritization based on TCP/UDP
- Choice of management interfaces: Web graphical user interface
(GUI): HTML-based easy-to-use graphical interface allows
configuration of the switch from any Web browser. Command-line
interface (CLI): provides advanced configuration and diagnostics
through a robust CLI. Simple Network Management Protocol
(SNMPv1/v2c/v3): allows a switch to be managed with a variety of
third-party network management applications.
- Virtual stacking: provides single IP address management for up to
- sFlow (RFC 3176): delivers wire-speed traffic accounting and
monitoring configured by SNMP and CLI with three terminal encrypted
- IEEE 802.1AB Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP): automates
device discovery protocol for easy mapping by network management
- Logging: provides local and remote logging of events via SNMP
(v2c and v3) and syslog; provides log throttling and log filtering
to reduce the number of log events generated
- IPv6: IPv6 host: allows the switch to be deployed and managed at
the edge of an IPv6 network. Dual stack (IPv4/IPv6): supports
connectivity for both protocols; provides a transition mechanism
from IPv4 to IPv6. MLD snooping: forwards IPv6 multicast traffic to
the appropriate interface; prevents IPv6 multicast traffic from
flooding the network.
- IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE): provides up to 15.4 W per
port to IEEE 802.3af-compliant PoE-powered devices such as IP
phones, wireless access points, and security cameras
- IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus: provides up to 30 W per
port to IEEE 802.3 for PoE/PoE+-powered devices such as video IP
phones, IEEE 802.11n wireless access points, and advanced
pan/tilt/zoom security cameras (see product specifications for
total PoE power available)
- Auto-MDIX: adjusts automatically for straight-through or
crossover cables on all ports
- Pre-standard PoE support: detects and provides power to
pre-standard PoE devices
Layer 2 switching
- VLANs: provides support for 512 VLANs and 4,094 VLAN IDs
- Jumbo packet support: supports up to 9220-byte frame size to
improve the performance of large data transfers; 8- and 24-port
Fast Ethernet models automatically support up to 2000-byte frames
with no configuration needed
- 16K MAC address table: provides access to many Layer 2
- GARP VLAN Registration Protocol: allows automatic learning and
dynamic assignment of VLANs
- Per-VLAN Spanning Tree Plus (PVST+): allows each VLAN to build a
separate spanning tree to improve link bandwidth usage in network
environments with multiple VLANs
