sg.pngDeployment of 10GBASE-T is hitting its stride at both the access and core of campus networks and should be considered within all network designs.   While copper and fiber will certainly live together in many infrastructures, I’m excited to share details on the new 10GBASE-T module for our 10500 Switch SeriesWith this new 10500 module, you have the flexibility to add 10GBASE-T when your business demands it!


First a little background on the 10500.   It is designed for enterprise campus core networks and sets a high benchmark for performance, reliability, and scalability with next-generation CLOS architecture.  


Check out these fun facts about the 10500:


  • Supports over 11.5 terabits per second switching capacity (480 Gbps/slot)
  • Supports up to 576 wire-speed 10 GbE ports and up to 96 wire-speed 40 GbE ports
  • 100 GbE ready
  • IRF virtualized chassis supports up to 2304 wire speed 10 GbE or 384 40 GbE ports
  • In-service software upgrade (ISSU) provides upgrade of entire chassis and zero packet loss
  • Robust, license-free software with full Layer 3 feature set with IPv6/MPLS functionality
  • Includes 1 year of 24x7 phone support included as part of purchase price



 10500 Switch Series


Recent 10500 performance testing conducted by Tolly on the 10500 provides a great view into this powerful campus core switch:


“100% L2 line rate, IPv4 and IPv6 throughput across eight 40 GbE port interface modules using full mesh topology (3.84Tb/S aggregated throughput)*”

Low latency, high performance and high density 10GBASE-T module


The HP 10500 24p 1/10GBASE-T SF Module (JG394A) supports 24 ports of 10GBASE-T.   Key benefits include:

  • Simple transition from 1 GbE to 10 GbE
  • Reduced deployment costs with cost-effective RJ-45 based 10 GbE connectivity
  • Full feature compatibility across SF modules
  • High energy efficiency with low power per port
