Resilient and Reliable Fast Ethernet Access Layer Switches
The HPE 3600 EI Switch Series delivers resiliency, security, and reliability at the enterprise edge with support for advanced Layer 3 and multicast routing.
Designed for increased flexibility and scalability, the 3600 EI Switch Series comes with 24- or 48-10/100 ports and 4 SFP Gigabit Ethernet ports for stacking and uplinks, a 24-port 100BASE-FX switch with 2 or 4 Gigabit Ethernet SFP slots and models with 370 W of PoE+ power.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) virtualizes up to nine physical switches into one logical device for simpler, flatter, more agile networks.
Enterprise class features include Dynamic and Multicast Routing, RIP, OSPF, BGP, PIM, and ECMP.
Limited Lifetime Warranty and no software licensing required.
Powerful Quality of Service (QoS)
The HPE 3600 EI Switch Series supports advanced, classifier-based QoS which directs traffic using multiple match criteria based on Layer 2, 3, and 4 information and applies QoS policies such as setting priority level and rate limit to selected traffic on a per-port or per-VLAN basis.
Provides extensive traffic prioritization with congestion actions: strict priority (SP), weighted round robin (WRR), weighted fair queuing (WFQ), and weighted random early discard (WRED).
Integrated and Distributed Security Enforcement
The HPE 3600 EI Switch Series supports flexible authentication methods including 802.1X, MAC, and Web for greater, policy-driven application security.
Identity-driven security and access control with automatic VLAN assignment and per-user ACLs allows access to specific network services without risking network security.
Security features include: IP source guard, STP BPDU port protection, and RADIUS/HWTACACS.
Single View of the Network
The HPE 3600 EI Switch Series can be seamlessly managed with the optional HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC) Software Platform to provide end-to-end network transparency with consistent network experience through comprehensive configuration, compliance and policy management.
RMON and sFlow provides advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events.
Separate data and control paths: keeps control separated from services and keeps service processing isolated; increases security and performance
External redundant power supply: provides high reliability
Smart link: allows 50 ms failover between links
Spanning Tree/MSTP, RSTP: provides redundant links while preventing network loops
Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP): allows a group of routers to dynamically back each other up to create highly available routed environments
RMON (remote monitoring): provides advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events
