Resilient Basic Layer 3 Fast Ethernet Access Layer Switches
The HPE 3600 SI Switch Series delivers resiliency, security, and reliability at the enterprise edge.
The 3600 SI Switch Series comes with 24 or 48 ports switching at 10/100 and 4 SFP Gigabit Ethernet ports for stacking and uplinks and up to 720 W of PoE+ power with external EPS/RPS.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) virtualizes up to nine physical switches into one logical device for simpler, flatter, and more agile networks.
Basic Layer 3 features include support for static and RIP routing.
Limited Lifetime Warranty and no software licensing required.
Enhanced Quality of Service (QoS)
The HPE 3600 SI Switch Series supports advanced, classifier-based QoS which directs traffic using multiple match criteria based on Layer 2, 3, and 4 information. These switches apply QoS policies such as setting priority level and rate limit to selected traffic on a per-port or per-VLAN basis.
Provides 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 SI Switch Series supports flexible authentication methods including 802.1X, and 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 SI 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: keep 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
Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) Technology: allows customers to build a simple and reliable architecture, reducing the number of IP addresses and configuration files to manage; RVSF addresses the OPEX problem that many customers are facing by simplifying the task of managing multiple devices, as well as eliminates the need for legacy protocols like STP, RSTP, MSPT, and VRRP, providing an active-active mode of operation for both Layer 2 and Layer 3 at every layer in the network
RMON (remote monitoring): provides advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events
