The HP 2915 Switch Series provides simple, cost-effective and reliable access layer connectivity for enterprises, branch offices and SMBs. This compact and quiet 8-port, fully managed, Basic Layer 3, Gigabit Ethernet switch with PoE is ideal for deployment in open areas, offices and environments.

A robust Basic Layer 3 feature set supports static and RIP routing, sFlow, ACLs, rate limiting, IPv6 and PoE. It is easy to use and deploy, supporting PoE devices and can be managed with the optional HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) Software for a single view of your entire network.

A summary of the highlights of the 2915 Switch Series:

  • Scalable 10/100/1000 connectivity
  • L2 and L3 switching capabilities
  • sFlow, ACLs, and rate limiting
  • Energy-efficient design and quiet operation
  • Rack-mountable, compact form factor

Features & Benefits:

Compact and Reliable Gigabit Access Layer Switch with PoE

  • The HP 2915 Switch provides simple, cost-effective and reliable access layer connectivity for enterprises, branch offices and SMBs.
  • This compact and quiet, 8-port fully managed Basic Layer 3 Gigabit Ethernet switch with PoE is ideal for deployment in open areas, offices and environments with limited space or are acoustically sensitive.
  • Robust Basic Layer 3 feature set includes support for static and RIP routing, sFlow, ACLs, rate limiting, IPv6, and PoE.
  • Eight Gigabit Ethernet PoE ports with two, additional, dual-personality Gigabit Ethernet ports provide copper or SFP connectivity for a total of ten ports.
  • Single view of the entire network with the optional HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) Software.

Security and Quality of Service (QoS)

  • The HP 2915 Switch supports flexible authentication methods including Local MAC, 802.1X, MAC, and Web for greater, policy-driven application security.
  • The HP 2915 Switch supports advanced denial of service (DOS) protection, such as DHCP, Dynamic ARP, and Dynamic IP lockdown, and flexible traffic controls including ACLs and QoS.
  • Traffic prioritization with IEEE 802.1p allows real-time traffic classification with support for eight priority levels mapped to two or four queues.
  • Rate limiting and flow control help ensure reliable communications.
  • Defend your IPv6 network with DHCPv6 Protection.

Simple Deployment and Management

  • The HP 2915 Switch supports a choice of management interfaces with Web GUI, command-line interface (CLI) and SNMP.
  • The HP 2915 Switch Series can be seamlessly managed with the optional HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) Software to provide end-to-end network transparency with consistent network experience through comprehensive configuration, compliance and policy management.
  • RMON and sFlow provide advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events.
