sg.pngAre you looking to simplify your branch network?  Did you know that you can combine switching, computing, virtualization, unified wireless, storage and management all in just one switch?  Designed for simple deployment and use with the HP 5400 and 8200 Switch Series, the new HP Advanced Services v2 zl module earns hero status at branch offices which often have few to no local IT resources.


First of all, the SDN-ready 5400 and 8200 switches are modular switches with maximum port flexibility to meet what your environment needs today and tomorrow.  They support 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GBASE-T and SFP+), Gigabit Ethernet and Fast Ethernet with fiber and copper, as well as PoE+.  Unified wired and wireless is supported with the MSM765 zl Premium Mobility Controller.  And along with most of HP’s FlexCampus portfolio, these switches include Lifetime Warranty 2.0 which gives you 3 years 24x7 phone support as part of the purchase price.  Unbeatable value, huh?


The new HP Advanced Services v2 zl modules provide an open platform to host applications and simplify application deployments, centralize management and reduce IT costs in campus and branch environments.  These modules run virtual VMware compatible software applications on top of a VMware vSphere hypervisor enabling a solution that combines switching, virtualization, storage, and management. Designed for increased flexibility and scalability, these modules offer the choice of a 1 TB hard disk drive or 800 GB solid state drive.
