Title: Hewlett-Packard Procurve Switch 2524 versus Cisco Systems, Inc. Catalyst 3500 (3524) Series XL Switch and 3Com SuperStack II Switch 3300 TM Layer 2 Fast Ethernet/Gigabit Uplink Switching Competitive Evaluation

Publication date:   01 January 2001
Document number:    201100

Abstract:

Hewlett-Packard Co. commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate the Layer 2 switching performance of its Procurve Switch 2524, a 24-port 10/100 Ethernet switch with two Gigabit Ethernet fiber uplink ports along with the Layer 2 switching performance of a Cisco Systems, Inc. Catalyst 3500 (3524) Series XL Switch with two Gigabit Ethernet fiber uplink ports and a 3Com Corp. SuperStack II Switch 3300 TM with a single Gigabit Ethernet copper uplink port, both 24-port, 10/100 Ethernet switches. The Tolly Group measured the throughput of each of the aforementioned switches directing traffic from 10 Fast Ethernet ports to a single Gigabit Ethernet port in a partial-mesh configuration, and directed the remaining Fast Ethernet ports in a full-mesh configuration. Tests were conducted of packet sizes of 64, 512 and 1,518 bytes for all devices under test. For a detailed description of the interaction between these companies, see the Technical Support Diary.
