HP PS1810 Switch Series devices are smart-managed, fixed-configuration Gigabit Layer 2 switches that are purpose built to work with HP ProLiant Ge
8 Servers. They are designed for small businesses looking for key networking features in an easy-to-administer solution.
The series includes 8- and 24-port Gigabit switch models. 24 port model include SFP ports for fiber connectivity.
8 port model has an innovative design that allows it to be stacke on the HP Proliant MicroServer Ge
8. Both models have fanless design making them ideal for office deployments.
The 8-port Gigabit Ethernet model can optionally be powered by an upstream Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch. Key feature is the auto-discovery and monitoring of HP Proliant Servers.
Customizable features include VLANs, Spanning Tree, and link aggregation trunking. The 8- and 24-port models include the latest energy-saving capabilities—Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) and idle-port power down All come with a lifetime warranty.
ManagementHP Proliant Server Dashboard: enables autodiscovery of HP ProLiant Ge
8 servers in the network; provides up-to-date server health status for up to ten monitored serversSimple web management: allows easy management of device by even nontechnical users with its intuitive Web GUISecure web GUI: provides a secure, easy-to-use graphical interface for configuring the module via HTTPSSNMPv1, v2c: enables devices to be discovered and monitored from an SNMP management statio
Dual flash images: provides independent primary and secondary operating system files for backup while upgradingConnectivityAuto-MDI/MDIX: adjusts automatically for straight-through or crossover cables on all portsPacket storm protection: protects against broadcast, multicast, or unicast storms with user-defined thresholdsIEEE 802.3af PoE-powered device option: obtains power provided by a standard PoE device connected to Port 1; deploy the switch wherever an Ethernet cable can reach as a power outlet is not needed (8-port model only)SFP ports for fiber connectivity: provides fiber connections for uplinks and other connections across longer distances than what copper cabling can support; "true" SFP ports operate in addition to available copper Ethernet ports providing a higher total numer of available ports (24-port model only)Layer 2 switchingVLAN support and tagging: supports up to 64 port-based VLANs and dynamic configuration of IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tagging, providing security between workgroupsJumbo packet support: improves the performance of large data transfers; supports frame size of up to 9220-bytesResiliency and high availabilityIEEE 802.1D Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) and IEEE 802.1W Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP; v2 models): provides redundant links while preventing network loopsLink Aggregation (trunking or bonding): groups ports together automatically using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) or manually, to form an ultra-high-bandwidth connection to the server or network backbone; bonds together two NIC ports on the ProLiant MicroServer doubling the speed of services to the server
