HP E5500G Switch Series
Data sheet
Product overview
Key features
Smart, voice-ready HP E5500G Gigabit switches
deliver outstanding performance, security, and
reliability for robust switching to the enterprise edge.
The series consists of Layer 2/3/4 Gigabit Ethernet
and PoE switches with advanced features for the most
demanding applications. Stackable up to eight units
high, one stack can provide up to 448 Gigabit
Ethernet ports with 96 Gbps of resilient stacking
bandwidth, all centrally managed with high-end
enterprise chassis-class availability. The latest traffic
prioritization and automatic assignment of VoIP traffic
to dedicated VLANs help ensure time-sensitive traffic
gets the priority necessary for optimal
communications. Further expansion is possible in
conjunction with other HP switch series, allowing
single IP management for up to 32 devices.

Features and benefits
Quality of Service (QoS)
• Command-line interface (CLI): provides a
secure, easy-to-use command-line interface for
configuring the module via SSH or a switch console;
provides direct real-time session visibility
• Traffic prioritization (IEEE 802.1p): allows
real-time traffic classification into eight priority levels
mapped to eight queues
• SNMPv1, v2c, and v3: facilitate centralized
discovery, monitoring, and secure management of
networking devices
• Class of Service (CoS): sets the IEEE 802.1p
priority tag based on IP address, IP Type of Service
(ToS), Layer 3 protocol, TCP/UDP port number,
source port, and DiffServ
• 3Com-heritage Comware V3 Operating
System: CLI and Web user interface in common
with HP E4XXX and E55XX series switches
• Rate limiting: sets per-port ingress enforced
maximums and per-port, per-queue guaranteed
minimums
• Bandwidth shaping:
– Rate limiting: provides per-port, ingress-based
enforced bandwidth maximums
– Guaranteed minimums: provides per-port,
per-queue egress-based guaranteed bandwidth
minimums
Management
• Remote configuration and management: is
available through a secure Web browser or a
command-line interface (CLI)
• Manager and operator privilege levels:
enable read-only (operator) and read-write
(manager) access on CLI and Web browser
management interfaces
• Management VLAN: segments traffic to and
from management interfaces, including CLI/telnet, a
Web browser interface, and SNMP
• Port mirroring: enables traffic on a port to be
simultaneously sent to a network analyzer for
monitoring

detailed session, usage, and billing information for
Ethernet (PoE): Start with a non-PoE unit and field
each client activity
upgrade to PoE by installing a different power
• IEEE 802.1ab LLDP discovery: advertises and
supply; provides up to 15.4 W per port to IEEE
receives management information from adjacent
802.3af-compliant PoE-powered devices such as IP
devices on a network
phones, wireless access points, and security
• Multiple configuration files: can be stored to
cameras
the flash image
• Advanced stacking: locally connect up to eight
• Dual flash images: provide independent primary
E5500G switches using built-in stacking ports and
and secondary operating system files for backup
manage as a single entity; improves resiliency by
while upgrading
spreading aggregated links across multiple stacked
units
• Secure Web GUI: provides a secure, easy-to-use
graphical interface for configuring the module via
HTTPS
2
Manageability
Security
• RMON (remote monitoring): provides
advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for
statistics, history, alarms, and events
• Access control lists (ACLs): provide IP Layer 3
filtering based on source/destination IP
address/subnet and source/destination TCP/UDP
port number
• Dual flash images: provides independent
primary and secondary operating system files for
backup while upgrading

data for secure, remote command-line interface (CLI)
access over IP networks
• Secure Web management with HTTPS and
SSL: encrypts all HTTP traffic, allowing secure
access to the browser-based management GUI in
the switch
• IEEE 802.1X and RADIUS network logins:
control port-based access for authentication and
accountability
