|The HP 6200-24G-mGBIC yl Switch is an advanced Layer 3 stackable switch in 1U height. It has 24 mini-GBIC slots and an expansion slot for an optional 4-port 10GbE module. Designed to be deployed as an aggregator of traffic from the edge to the core of the network, this switch supports a variety of Gigabit mini-GBICs, such as SX, LX, LH, and 1000BASE-T. The foundation for this switch is a purpose-built ProVision ASIC that allows the most demanding networking features, such as quality of service (QoS) and security, to be implemented in a scalable yet granular fashion. With its high-performance architecture, 10GbE capability, and programmable ASIC, this switch offers excellent investment protection, flexibility, and scalability.|
- OpenFlow: is a key technology that enables software-defined networking by allowing the separation of data (packet forwarding) and control (routing decision) paths.
- Advanced classifier-based QoS: classifies traffic using multiple match criteria based on Layer 2, 3, and 4 information; applies QoS policies such as setting priority level and rate limit to selected traffic on a per-port or per-VLAN basis. Layer 4 prioritization: enables prioritization based on TCP/UDP port numbers. Traffic prioritization: allows real-time traffic classification into eight priority levels mapped to eight queues. Bandwidth shaping: Port-based rate limiting: provides per-port ingress-/egress-enforced increased bandwidth. Classifier-based rate limiting: uses an access control list (ACL) to enforce increased bandwidth for ingress traffic on each port. Reduced bandwidth: provides per-port, per-queue egress-based reduced bandwidth. 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.
- Remote intelligent mirroring: mirrors selected ingress/egress traffic based on ACL, port, MAC address, or VLAN to a local or remote HP 8200 zl, 6600, 6200 yl, 5400 zl, or 3500 Switch located anywhere on the network. RMON, XRMON, and sFlow: provide advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events. IEEE 802.1AB Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP): advertises and receives management information from adjacent devices on a network, facilitating easy mapping by network management applications. Command authorization: leverages RADIUS to link a custom list of CLI commands to an individual network administrator's login; an audit trail documents activity. Friendly port names: allows assignment of descriptive names to ports.
- Jumbo frames: on Gigabit Ethernet and 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports, jumbo frames allow high-performance remote backup and disaster-recovery services. IPv6: IPv6 host: enables switches to be managed in an IPv6 network . Dual stack (IPv4 and IPv6): transitions from IPv4 to IPv6, supporting connectivity for both protocols . MLD snooping: forwards IPv6 multicast traffic to the appropriate interface. IPv6 ACL/QoS: supports ACL and QoS for IPv6 network traffic. IPv6 routing: supports static and OSPFv3 routing protocols. 6in4 tunneling: supports encapsulation of IPv6 traffic in IPv4 packets.
- High-speed, high-capacity architecture: 105.6 Gbps crossbar switching fabric provides intra- and inter-module switching with 75.7 million pps throughput on the purpose-built ProVision ASICs. Selectable queue configurations: allows for increased performance by selecting the number of queues and associated memory buffering that best meet the requirements of the network applications.
- Router redundancy: VRRP allows groups of two routers to dynamically back each other up to create highly available routed environments. IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol: provides high link availability in multiple VLAN environments by allowing multiple spanning trees; encompasses IEEE 802.1D Spanning Tree Protocol and IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol. IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) and HP port trunking: support up to 144 trunks, each with up to eight links (ports) per trunk. Distributed trunking: enables loop-free and redundant network topology without using Spanning Tree Protocol; allows a server or switch to connect to two switches using one logical trunk for redundancy and load sharing. Uplink Failure Detection: provides active-standby network path redundancy for servers that are configured for active-standby NIC teaming.
- IEEE 802.1ad Q-in-Q: increases the scalability of an Ethernet network by providing a hierarchical structure; connects multiple LANs on a high-speed campus or metro network. HP switch meshing: dynamically load-balances across multiple active redundant links to increase available aggregate bandwidth. VLAN support and tagging: supports complete IEEE 802.1Q standard and 2,048 VLANs simultaneously. IEEE 802.1v protocol VLANs: isolate select non-IPv4 protocols automatically into their own VLANs. GARP VLAN Registration Protocol: allows automatic learning and dynamic assignment of VLANs.
