    Setting up an IRF fabric You can use HP IRF technology to connect and virtualize HP 5920 and 5900 switches into a large virtual switch called an "IRF fabric" for flattened network topology, and high availability, scalability, and manageability. To set up IRF links between HP 5920 and 5900 switches, use SFP+ ports, 1/10-GE Ethernet ports, or QSFP+ ports.

  • Page 36: Planning Irf Fabric Setup, Planning Irf Fabric Size And The Installation Site

    NOTE: As your business grows, you can plug an HP 5920 or 5900 switch into an IRF fabric to increase the switching capacity without any topology change or replacement. Identifying the master switch and planning IRF member IDs Determine which switch you want to use as the master for managing all member switches in the IRF fabric.
