Publication date:   08 February 2007
Document number:    206141


ProCurve Networking by HP commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate the ProCurve 5406zl, a six-slot modular Layer 2/3 intelligent switch that supports Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 10GbE connections with integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE), extending high bandwidth from the enterprise backbone to the network’s edge to meet the evolving needs of security, mobility and convergence applications.

Tolly Group engineers examined features/functions of the ProCurve 5406zl pertaining to its support of a converged network environment, and its ability to handle traffic on a converged services backbone. The Tolly Group certified a number of converged services capabilities under the auspices of the company’s Tolly Verified program, which offers vendor-neutral independent validation of key features and functions. Engineers examined the ProCurve 5406zl’s support for voice quality, multimedia, Quality of Service, enterprise-class security and redundancy/reliability issues that demonstrate the switch has been architected to anchor converged services backbones. Testing was performed in June 2006.
