Hi there, 

is J8697A compatible with j9993A and j9995A?

Cheers, 

Leo

Re: J8697A

No.

HP ProCurve E5400 zl Switch Series (J8697A) is not able to support any v3 zl2 module (like J9993A or J9995A).

Equivalents (newer v3 zl2 module <-- older v2 zl module):

  • J9993A v3 zl2 (HP 8p 1G/10GbE SFP+ v3 zl2 Module) <-- J9538A (HP 8-port 10GbE SFP+ v2 zl Module)
  • J9995A v3 zl2 (HP 8p 1/2.5/5/10GBASE-T PoE+ v3 zl2 Module) <-- J9546A (HP 8-port 10GBase-T v2 zl Module)

Clearly v1 zl modules are natively supported on old HP ProCurve E5400 zl Switch Series.

Using v2 zl modules on old HP ProCurve E5400 zl Switch Series could be a way to, in a near future, upgrade the chassis to Araba 5400R zl2...but that scenario will lock you if, in future, you're going to plan to deploy VSF on that platform.

Re: J8697A

Thanks for your reply.

Is there any alternative to J9538A (HP 8-port 10GbE SFP+ v2 zl Module) and J9546A (HP 8-port 10GBase-T v2 zl Module) compatible with J8697A?

Re: J8697A

Alternative to what exactly? number of ports? type of ports? both? consider that you're essentially limited on using v1 zl and/or v2 zl supported modules (there are many...).

Re: J8697A

Hi, 

I need

24 ports 10GbE SFP+ v2 zl Module +

24 ports port 10GBase-T v2 zl Module

like the  J9538A and  J9546A

to get insatlled in J8697A...

Thank you for your help..

Re: J8697A

That ports density (24 ports) with those ports types (SFP+ or RJ45) at that speed (10Gbps) is unobtanium on a single Module for HP ProCurve 5400 zl (the same is true for newer Aruba 5400R zl2)...you have to consider the module throughput to chassis backplane...24x10Gbps means that (each) module should provide 240Gbps (v3 zl2 modules reach just 80Gbps!)...no way considering those switch series.
