HP is expanding its FlexNetwork architecture portfolio today with new FlexFabric and FlexCampus switching gear. The new hardware is being complemented by an improved management offering that protects against mobile network threats.
HP first debuted its FlexNetwork architecture in May of this year as a platform for network convergence. With the new releases, HP is delivering additional deployment options and network consolidation features.
In the HP FlexFabric product family, there is the new 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 5900 top-of-rack switch. The 5900 has 48, 10 GbE ports and 4 QSFP ports that can be used for 40 Gigabit Ethernet ports.
“This really unique in that it can handle ulta-low latency while providing for the convergence of Ethernet and storage traffic, all in a single device,” Kash Shaikh, Director, Marketing at HP Networking told InternetNews.com.
