24-port 10Gb RJ45 based switch

There are few models such as A5820, A5920 and A5900 series switches have a higher 10Gb port density, but none of them support RJ45 Copper Media.  Is there any model either E or A where I could have 24-port 10gb Switch with RJ45 Transceivers.

 

Thanks

@aali...

 

According to HP's switch selector tool, if you specify 24 ports & 10GB as the predominant port type, only two switches are suggested, but both provide 24 x SFP+ slots, each of which would need a transceiver.

 

6600-24XG (J9265A)

 

5820-24XG-SFP+ (JC102A)

Currently the 5400zl and 8200zl modular families support 8 port 10G RJ45 modules.

 

Both switch families have limited lifetime warranty, the big difference is that the 5400zl family does not need a fabric module, while the 8200zl has redundant fabric modules. This means that the 8200zl is also has a little more bandwidth per slot.

 

Hope this helps,

FYI: There are 24Port 10GBase-T planned. I know, that will not help you at the moment.

Re: 24-port 10Gb RJ45 based switch

I just setup my A5820-24XG with two 5800-48G-POE switches.  IRF was not bad to configure.  I am using Add-on DAC cables to connect them together.  My servers will have NC522SFP+ 10 Gbps dual connect NICs for the transitition to the C7000 Blade Center with dual Flex-10 modules.  So far, it has been a good experience.

Part of the reason you can't get 10 Gbps RJ45 switches is cost of cabling.  You would need CAT 6A or 7 cabling for 10 Gbps.   Patch cables would be more than the cost of fiber.   5820 can use DAC cables + transcieivers up to 5 meters, officially.  I have seen a company that can do 50 meter DAC cables.  They are much heavier and expernsive.

So the 5406 would be able to provide the requested 24 ports.

Keep in mind though, that in this chassis each module has a single backplane-connection of only 14Gbps. A heavy oversubscription to consider, depending on your topology.

 Any news about that one?

Re: 24-port 10Gb RJ45 based switch

Any news about a 24-port or 48-port 10Gbe RJ45 switch? Are there any rumors whether that one will be "Procurve" or "Comware" based?
