Title: HP 5400R zl2 Switch Series Competitive Performance, Power Consumption and TCO Evaluation versus Cisco Catalyst 4507R+E

Publication date:   15 December 2014
Document number:    214144


Today’s enterprise networks demand next-generation modular switches that are powerful, resilient and flexible enough to be deployed at the enterprise edge, as a small-medium business (SMB) core solution or in branch-office deployments.

HP commissioned Tolly to evaluate the performance, power consumption and total cost of ownership (TCO) of its modular HP 5400R zl2 Switch and compare that with the Cisco Systems Catalyst 4507R+E.

The HP 5400R zl2 Switch Series delivered better system performance with 50% higher aggregate throughput than the Cisco Systems Catalyst 4507R+E across all frame/packet sizes tested in tests of L2 switching and L3 IPv4 and IPv6 routing. With respect to cost, the HP solution not only has lower initial costs but provides ongoing savings through more efficient use of power and cost-effective support.
