The throughput of the 5412zl switch fabric is capable of up to 480 .3 Mpps with a backplane speed of 691 .2 Gbps .
Layer 3 stackables is designed to be deployed as an aggregator of traffic from the edge to the core of the network . The HP ProCurve Switch 5400zl series provides the same Intelligent Edge features as the 3500 series, with baseline high availability in a modular form factor . The HP ProCurve Switch 8200zl series offers advanced resiliency and redundancy and brings to the portfolio a highly available switch platform for mission-critical access layer through mid-sized core deployments .
The Switch 5400zl and 3500 series are targeted as enterprise-class wiring closet switches—designed for low cost with a choice of medium to high port density . Voice, video, and data ready, the HP ProCurve Switch 5400zl and 3500 series offer extensive prioritization features that bring full convergence down to the desktop .
HP ProCurve Switch 6200yl-24G-mGBIC The HP ProCurve Switch 6200yl-24G-mGBIC is an advanced Layer 3 stackable at 1U height . It has 24 mini- GBIC slots and an expansion slot for an optional 4-port 10-GbE 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 .
All of the key elements are connected to the active backplane . The active backplane contains the switch fabric and distributes power to all modules . The HP ProCurve Switch 5400zl, 3500, and 6200yl series have similar architectural components . The primary difference in the illustration would be the number of ports supported .
HP ProCurve Switch 4000M and Switch 5300xl new ASIC-related features well after initial release of those products . The customers’ investments in the HP ProCurve Switch 4000M and 5300xl are preserved by new functionality not otherwise possible without the ASIC NPU programmability .

“active” MM (either MM1 or MM2) . If the active MM were to fail, the standby MM takes control of the switch and continues operation . However, if only one management module is running and then is removed, all ports lose communication and the system will be powered down .
The HP ProCurve Switch 8200zl series requires at least a single management module that oversees (or “supervises”) the operation of the interface modules and fabric modules . The management module is responsible for network control processing (e .g ., OSPF updates or ARP requests), while each interface module in conjunction with the fabric modules handles the traffic switching in ASIC hardware .
The switching fabric is provided by two fabric modules, each housing a single ProVision Fabric ASIC . Much like the design of the award-winning HP ProCurve Switch 5412zl, the Fabric ASICs are load-sharing and resilient to each other . With both fabric ASICs operational, all 12 slots of the Switch 8212zl provide wire-speed switching capacity for up to 288 Gigabit ports, or up to 28 .8 Gbps per slot when used with 10-Gigabit ports .
All components contained on the SSM are very low failure rate functions (as evidenced from the very low failure rate of HP ProCurve 5400zl series chassis and predecessor chassis products) . But in the event of a failure of any of these components, this module can be replaced without removing any network cables or interface modules—as required by other competitor designs when there is a need to service some components mounted...
The fan tray is hot-swappable in the Switch 8212zl; it can be removed and replaced without removing power from the switch . However, the new fan tray should be installed immediately after removing the old fan tray to avoid overheating and the automatic switch shutdown within three minutes .
8206zl fan tray consists of four fans . The fan speed is based on the sensed ambient temperature of the chassis . As with the Switch 8212zl, the fan tray is installed/replaced from the rear of the chassis and mounted on the left side of the chassis (from a front-view perspective) .

• PCM—You use HP ProCurve Manager to perform the most common licensing functions . If you are already using PCM, this is more convenient than the manual method . There is a free copy of HP ProCurve Manager on the CD-ROM that accompanies your Premium License .
Either method requires that you be registered on the My ProCurve Web portal . To use HP ProCurve Manager to install a Premium License, you first select the Switch 5400zl or 3500 series in the PCM navigation tree and right-click it . Then, you select Config Manager > License Software on the pop-up menus .
Premium License . The registration ID is found on a plastic laminated card that is shipped with the HP ProCurve switch . After you agree to the terms of the License Agreement, the wizard will display the status of the license installation process .
In the initial release, the contents of the TCAM are common among the multiple line interface modules that a switch may have installed . For example, a HP ProCurve Switch 5406zl or 8206zl may have up to 6 line interface modules, and a HP ProCurve Switch 5412zl or 8212zl may have up to 12 line interface modules .
(47 to 57 volts DC) and wattage (up to 15 .4 watts), with further limitations on the devices that receive power . HP ProCurve switches that are PoE-enabled support both IEEE 802 .3af-compliant devices as well as some pre- 802 .3af standard devices .
The IEEE 802 .3af standard requires power sourcing equipment (PSE) to choose between the options . It is not possible to mix and match or to use all pairs for power transmission . HP ProCurve switches provide power over the data pairs . However, the standard requires PDs to be able to accept power over either data pairs or unused pairs .
Appendix D: PIM Sparse Mode In Protocol Independent Multicast-Sparse Mode (PIM-SM), the assumption is that there are no hosts that want the multicast traffic unless they specifically ask for it . In contrast, PIM Dense Mode (PIM-DM) assumes downstream router membership unless it receives an explicit prune message . PIM-SM is appropriate for wide- scale deployment for both densely and sparsely populated groups and is the optimal choice for all production networks regardless of size and membership density .
HP ProCurve switches to advertise themselves to adjacent devices and to learn about adjacent LLDP devices . An LLDP packet transmitted by an HP ProCurve switch contains data about the switch and port . The switch advertises itself to adjacent (neighbor) devices by transmitting LLDP data packets out all ports on which outbound LLDP is enabled, and reading LLDP advertisements from neighbor devices on ports that are inbound LLDP-enabled .
• Class 3 (Communication Devices): These devices are typically IP phones or end-user devices that otherwise support IP media and offer all Class 1 and Class 2 features, plus location identification and emergency 911 capability, Layer 2 switch support, and device information management . Appendix F: Virus Throttle security Virus Throttle is based on the detection of anomalous behavior of network traffic that differs from a normal activity .
On the HP ProCurve Switch 8200zl, 5400zl, 3500, and 6200yl series, Virus Throttle is implemented through connection-rate filtering . When connection-rate filtering is enabled on a port, the inbound routed traffic is monitored for a high rate of connection requests from any given host on the port . If a host appears to exhibit the worm-like behavior of attempting to establish a large number of outbound IP connections in a short period of time, the switch responds on the basis of how connection-rate filtering is configured .
The advantage gained from using VRRP is a default path with higher availability, but without requiring configuration of dynamic routing or router discovery protocols on every end host . VRRP on HP ProCurve switches is interoperable with other routers that support RFC 3768 . VRRP operational aspects include: • Preempt delay timer to allow other protocols to complete their convergences...
Similar in concept to VRRP, the HP ProCurve XL Router Redundancy Protocol (XRRP) provides the equivalent mechanism in the HP ProCurve Switch 5300xl series for backup functionality . Like VRRP, XRRP presents a virtual router to the end-node connections whose IP and MAC address can transition from the master HP ProCurve Switch 5300xl to the backup HP ProCurve Switch 5300xl in the event the master HP ProCurve Switch 5300xl interface fails .
– Layer 3 IP precedence bits – Layer 3 DSCP bits – Layer 4 UDP/TCP application port (including TCP flags) – VLAN ID • Additional policy actions to manage selected traffic, such as rate-limiting and IP precedence marking • Configuring service policies for features such as quality of service (QoS) and traffic mirroring • The application of service policies to specific inbound traffic flows on individual ports and VLAN interfaces (rather than only on switch-wide or port-wide traffic) Figure A9.

Layer 2 network . Distributed Trunking (DT) is included in switch software starting with version K . 1 4 . In this initial release, only Server-to-Switch Distributed Trunking is supported . For each downstream server, it sees the aggregated links as coming from a single switch, which makes any servers that support standard IEEE 802 .3ad interoperate with...
An example of upstream traffic forwarding is as follows Assuming the uplink connected to Switch B is blocked by STP and only an uplink in Switch A is active . Server 1 sent traffic with load-balance across its 802 .3ad LACP links . If the receiving switch is Switch A, which learns the destination MAC from any of the upstream links, it will forward the unicast frames to destination directly via its upstream link .
