Product overview
The HPE 2915 Switch Series is a fully managed, eight-port, 10/100/1000 switch with two additional dual-personality gigabit
Ethernet ports for copper or SFP connectivity. Bringing together static and RIP IPv4 routing, robust security and management,
enterprise class features. Limited Lifetime Warranty, software updates included. These PoE switch delivers a comprehensive and
cost-effective solution.
The 2915 Switch Series has a fan-less design for quiet operation, making it suitable for deployments in open spaces. In addition, its
compact form factor allows for flexible deployments—including wall, surface, or rack mounting. These switches can be deployed at
the enterprise edge and remote branch offices, as well as on converged networks.
Features and benefits
Quality of Service (QoS)
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Selectable queue configuration
performance and/or traffic reliability can be increased by selecting the number of queues that best meet the requirements
of network applications; the switch will map eight priorities to either two or four queues
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
Layer 4 prioritization
enables prioritization based on TCP/UDP port numbers
Traffic prioritization (IEEE 802.1p)
allows real-time traffic classification into eight priority levels mapped to four queues
Rate limiting
per-port ingress-enforced maximums
Flow control
helps ensure reliable communications during full-duplex operation
Type of service:
o IP precedence
honors IP precedence bits and allows mapping to a priority queue
o Differentiated Services Code Point values
