Always the right network solution for better reliability, investment protection and performance.

HPE is a leading provider of hyper-converged systems and private-cloud solutions, offering server, storage and network solutions from a single source. HPE switching solutions combine reliability through maximum availability, investment protection through unsurpassed scalability and top-tier performance through state-of-the-art technology.

HPE switching is ideal for midsized businesses.

The HPE 5900 series has proven its worth time and again at your data centre’s core:

  • Custom configuration of 1G, 10G (FO), 10G (copper), 40G and 100G ports
  • Convergent LAN/SAN networks with FCoE and native Fibre Channel support
  • Up to nine devices, even across multiple data centres, on a single logical switch through HPE Intelligent Resilient Framework
  • Modular switches with up to 864 ports per chassis for even larger environments


Top-of-rack HPE 5700 switches deliver high port density at an unbeatable value. And as with all HPE switches, all features and routing protocols can be used without any additional licences.


Why HPE?

Maximum availability.

All HPE data centre switches have redundant power supplies and fans to ensure maximum reliability. IRF technology enables you to group several physical switches into one logical switch, making it easier to establish redundant links to servers, storage and other switches. Our own Bechtle services guarantee you receive the service levels you need. And thanks to the HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC), you’ll always have a full overview of your data centre, no matter which hardware you use.

Unbeatable scalability.

Each IRF group supports up to nine physical switches, so you can deploy additional or faster ports flexibly to accommodate changes in your server or storage landscape without having to interfere with your existing environment. The consistent use of open standards also enables smooth integration of third-party hardware. HPE prepares you perfectly for such forward-facing topics as software-defined networking, open-source networking and hyperscale technology. Automation enables you to rollout new virtual machines in mere minutes and respond quickly to new, business-critical requirements.

Optimum performance.

HPE data centre switches offer impressive throughput, ultra-low latency and strong computing power. They also integrate seamlessly into existing server and storage environments, especially when used with HPE solutions. HPE Virtual Connect reduces complexity, lowers costs and optimises bandwidth use. And because these switches are cooled in the same direction as servers, you can cut energy consumption even more through an ideal combination of hot-aisle and cold-aisle climate control.
