Is your IT organization dealing with a constant increase in the number of mobile devices, requests for rich-media communications and a growing need for cloud applications? How will your campus network scale to meet these demands and deliver a consistent and reliable user experience? Good news for both challenges was announced this week at Interop Las Vegas. The HP 10500 core campus switch now has line cards supporting four-port 40 GbE, delivering industry-leading throughput and low latency for the bandwidth-intense applications today’s users need
These new enhancements to the HP 10500 Series switch increases application performance of rich media like voice and video with 75 percent lower latency and 1,090 percent greater throughput than the competition. It also delivers 526 percent higher 10GbE port density to eliminate network bottlenecks and improve bandwidth. The HP 10500 supports four-port 40 GbE with the addition of new line cards and uses HP Intelligent Resilient Framework, an HP innovation that allows multiple switches to be virtualized and operate as a single switch.
What do these new enhancements to the HP 10500 switch offer for the campus LAN? Greater scale and reliability, including 576 10 GbE or 48 40 GbE wire-speed ports in a single chassis—and enough performance to stream the entire Netflix library simultaneously.
HP Networking continues to deliver on the HP FlexNetwork architecture strategy with new innovations for the network and the cloud.
These new options for the HP 10500 core campus switch are another proof point for HP’s multi-phase program to deliver virtualization and cloud-ready networks, not just in the data center, but to the campus and branch as well
