The new HP A12900/A11900 switching series?

So, this seems to be the either the new A12900 or A11900 switching series?

Hi,

 

This is the public info available:

 

12900 is next-gen 12500, based on CLOS fabric and very-large buffers:

H3C calls it the 12500-X. Test results look pretty impressive (google translate):

11900 is based on 10500, based on orthoganal fabric, but only the high-end SF linecards are available, and just "normal" buffers:

The 11900 is already available in the online configurator, where you can review the line card specs:

Due to the buffering difference, 12XXX is more positioned as the core device, 11900 is positioned as distribution/aggregation,

 

Hope this helps,

Best regards,Peter
