Title: HP 5500 Switch Series Performance Evaluation and Feature Validation

Publication date:   20 January 2015
Document number:    215109


Hewlett-Packard Company commissioned Tolly to verify key features of the HP 5500 Switch Series. The presence of these features make the switch family suited to serve as the distribution device in large-sized enterprise and campus networks, the core device in small- and medium-sized enterprise networks, and the edge device in Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs).

Tolly previously published two extensive evaluations of the 5500 switch covering both performance and features in 2006 and 2007. Relevant information from those tests is presented along with the new test results.

Tolly engineers also verified the performance of two 5500 models and a total of 86 functions and features spanning Layer 2 and Layer 3 functions, security and control policies, stacking functionality, MPLS and ISSU. Testing was conducted in November 2012.
