Switch security

Password protected multi-level user accounts supported on all management interfaces
Configurable user interface idle time-out period
Ability to disable web-based and Telnet access to the switch user interfaces
256 Port-based IEEE 802.1Q tagged VLANs per switch (512 per server blade enclosure)
Ability to specify the IP-based management stations that is allowed to access the switch
Unicast and multicast static MAC address packet filtering table (layer 2 access control list)
Restriction on the maximum number of MAC addresses learned on a per port basis

Switch availability

Front-mounted, hot-swappable switch with configuration retention and no need to cable/recable when removing
Redundant switches per server blade enclosure
Redundant uplink ports per switch
Redundant front panel management/diagnostic ports per switch
Redundant crosslinks for switch to switch communication and failover scenarios within the server blade enclosure
Redundant pairs of network adapters per server routed to different switches
Redundant N+N hot-plug redundant power to each switch
Redundant N+1 on-board cooling per switch
IEEE 802.3ad automatic multi-link load balancing and link failover (excluding LACP)
Load balancing of unicast traffic
ProLiant network adapter teaming
Redundant configurable community strings and SNMP trap manager hosts
Redundant configurable SNTP servers

Switch ports per server blade enclosure

Four external 10/100T Fast Ethernet ports and four external 10/100/1000T (C-GbE) or 1000SX (F-GbE) Gigabit Ethernet
ports, all on a pair of hot-pluggable rear-mounted interconnect modules
Four external 10/100T Fast Ethernet ports on switch front panels
Two external DB-9 serial ports on switch front panels (one per switch)
32 internal 10/100 Fast Ethernet ports to server blade network adapters (4 per server bay)
Two internal 10/100 Gigabit Ethernet inter-switch crosslinks for switch to switch communication and failover scenarios
C Switch to management module communications
All external Ethernet ports may be used for data, switch and iLO management, and/or PXE remote configuration.
All internal Ethernet signals routed as Ethernet across individual CAT5e signal traces
12 RJ-45 (C-GbE) or 4 LC fiber + 8 RJ-45 (F-GbE) external Ethernet port connectors

Switch physical and environmental
