Stackable And Multi Layer HP Procurve Switch 2626 Leave a comment

This system switch out of HP is laden with features for its small- to medium-sized office. It has 24 RJ-45 ports that operate 10/100/1000 Mbps, a committed console port, and two “dual personality” ports that can either be another 2 RJ-45 interfaces, or can be used as slots for mini-GBIC (GigaBit Interface Converter) transceivers. (GBIC allows for the interconnection of multiple switches even over longer distances without loss of rate).

Additionally, this change provides more two dozen different protocols for great versatility in your own operations. It puts through 6.6 million packets per minute, with a total switching capacity of 9.6 Gbps. It’s 8MB of flash-ram and 32 MB of SDRAM, and has an 8,000 entry MAC table, allowing up to 8,000 addressable devices on your network. It includes rack mount hardware and can be one standard device tall.

Small review of the HP Procurve Switch 2626:

Created for mid-size enterprises that require a smaller, more Economical switch without sacrificing performance, the Switch 2626 broadens the scope of HP’s Ethernet switch offerings, providing a lower cost option as a part of the HP ProCurve Switch 2600 series.The HP ProCurve Switch 2626 supports advanced network applications, including advanced network security and converged voice and data networks. With minimal configuration needs, the switch offers simple, plug-n-play enterprise deployment. The Switch 2626 provides the stackable 10/100 port density needed in smaller wiring closets today for aggregation at the edge of their network. With wire-speed performance and scalable port density, enterprises can utilize this lower cost option while still satisfying the performance demands of corporate environments.

The HP J4900B ProCurve Switch 2626 features two 10/100/1000 interfaces (or even mini-GBIC slots) for optional fiber connectivity like Gigabit-SX, -LX, or –LH, to adapt to various network cabling, reducing base system costs. Supports many different security methods such as port protection, MAC address lockout, IP lockdown, multiple user authentication, secure FTP, TACASC+, source-port filtering, secure shell, SSL and switch management logon safety to vender comprehensive safeguard for your community. With advanced monitoring feature, automated problem solving mechanics, thoughtful backing up and free software updates, the HP J4900B ProCurve Switch 2626 minimizes burdens from administrators in many managerial aspects.
