7503 - 7506 pro advice

Dear Folks,

 

Our hospital purchased HP 7506 (core) 7503 (distribution-JD240B) 5500 (edge-JG240A)

1- Edges are only 1G uplink ! , what module to install to have 10G uplink ?

2- distibution has 48 SFP ports & 48 RJ 45 ports, for the edge uplink (10G), I need to (14 ports) with 10G (SFP+) installed in

Distibution, is that possible ? If Yes, which SFP+ is compatible with 7503 ?

The manual list the below but I'm not fully understand what does it mean

 

2 switch fabric slots
3 I/O module slots
Supports a maximum of 28 10GbE ports or 144 autosensing
10/100/1000 ports or 144 SFP ports or 12 40GbE ports, or a
combination

 

 

We're having increased numbers of pateints & I'd really appeciate your kind support

For 7500 series switches, I have not seen 10G modules with more than 8 ports.

 

HP 7500 8-port 10G SFP+ Module JF290A

 

Transceiver choice depends on what kind of fiber infrastructure you have (SM, MM, distances).

 

All products numbers can be found here:

Thank you TerjeAFK for your intervene , It's the 1st time for me to get introduced to such modules & I searched the site here & checked the compatibilities as well.

 

I only need to confirm 2 final things with you .

 

Do I need to purchase HP750048p1000BASE-TPoE+SC Module  - JG663A ) ? knowing we've 7506 free 48p POE+

Do I need to purchase any software managements such as JG747AAE & H7J34A3 SUS (HP IMCStd SW Plat E-LTU) ?

 

Thank you very much

Re: 7503 - 7506 pro advice

To your first question: you only need to buy the JG663A if you need connect a number of PoE+ devices directly to your core or distribution switches. PoE+ devices are typically wireless access points.

 

Second question: IMC is nice to have if you have a number of HP switches to manage, but you do not need it for your 7500 switches to work. We have hundreds of HP switches, so we use IMC for monitoring, upgrading and configuring these switches. If you just have a few switches I would use CLI/web to manage them, and maybe look at something like Nagios (freeware) for monitoring.

So what we're having now is 48p module POE+ JD211B

We will connect our servers to that module, is that okay ?

As long as your servers use 1 Gbit connection that is fine.
