The HPE FlexFabric 5940 Switch Series is a family of high-performance and low-latency 10GbE and 40GbE top-of-rack (ToR) data center switches. The 5940 Switch includes 100G uplink technology which is part of the HPE FlexFabric data center solution and is a cornerstone of the FlexNetwork architecture. The 5940 Switch is suited for deployment at the aggregation or server access layer of large enterprise data centers or at the core layer of medium-sized enterprises. It is optimized for high-performance server connectivity, convergence of Ethernet and storage traffic, and virtual environments. What's new - VXLAN Layer 2 and Layer 3 gateway support. - Pre-configured switch bundles for deployment in the campus aggregation and core. - Comware 7 advanced modular operating system designed for high availability. - IRF supports of up to nine switches simplifies management by up to 88%. - EVPN, OpenFlow and SDN automate manual tasks and speed service delivery. Features High-Density, Advanced, Data Center Switches The HPE FlexFabric 5940 Switch Series enables customers to scale their server-edge 10/40/100GbE ToR deployments with high-density 48 x 10GbE (SFP or BASE-T) with 6 x 40GbE ports, 48 x 10GbE (SFP or BASE-T) with 6 x 100GbE ports, and 32 x 40GbE ports, delivered in a 1RU design. The HPE FlexFabric 5940 Switch Series is also available with a 2-slot modular version delivering 2 40GbE ports and a 4-slot modular version with 4 40GbE ports. High-Performance Data Center Switching The HPE FlexFabric 5940 Switch Series delivers up to 2.56 Tbps switching capacity for the most demanding data center applications. It supports up to 1904 MPPS throughput for data-intensive environments. Low latency, under 1µs for 40GbE, gives your network increased throughput. VXLAN support for network virtualization and overlay solutions for improved flexibility. Includes Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) for dynamic VXLAN tunnel management. Business Agility and Resilience with Comware 7 The HPE FlexFabric 5940 Switch Series delivers Hewlett Packard Enterprise Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) <50 msec convergence time enabling faster application response time. The In Service Software Update (ISSU) enables high availability with modular updates accomplished without a reboot or power cycle, in the background. Simplicity and Lower TCO HPE FlexFabric 5940 Switch Series simplifies switch management by up to 88% with 9-unit Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF). No hidden costs with simple one license per switch for all OS features. All switch ports are active and ready to use without need for activation licenses.
