Product Review

The HP AM870A offers a high aggregate bandwidth of 680Gbit/sec, ensuring efficient handling of network traffic across its 24 SFP ports, making it suitable for environments requiring high data throughput. However, its fabric latency of 700 nanoseconds, while adequate for many applications, may not meet the needs of ultra-low latency environments. Additionally, the switch's broad operating temperature and humidity ranges, coupled with its rack-mountable 1U form factor, provide flexibility in deployment across various data center conditions, though its power consumption at 91 Watts could be a consideration for energy-conscious deployments.


The HP AM870A is a high-performance networking switch designed for enterprise environments requiring reliable, high-speed data transmission. This switch is equipped with 24 full fabric ports and supports a 8/40 Power Pack configuration, enhancing its efficiency and scalability in demanding network infrastructures. Key specifications of the HP AM870A include its rack-mountable 1U enclosure, which makes it an ideal choice for space-constrained data centers. Each of the 24 ports on this device is equipped with SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) slots, providing flexibility in network connection types and speeds. The switch supports a variety of remote management protocols such as SNMP, Telnet, and HTTP, allowing for easy integration into existing network management systems. Key hardware features include: - Full duplex capability, ensuring simultaneous bi-directional data transmission for increased network efficiency. - Auto-sensing per device, which automatically adjusts for optimal speed and compatibility without manual configuration. - Interfaces include one 10Base-T/100Base-TX port (RJ-45) for network management and one RS-232 port (9-pin D-Sub DB-9) for local console management. The dimensions of the HP AM870A are 1.7 inches in height, 16.9 inches in width, and 24 inches in depth, with an approximate weight of 20.60 pounds. This compact size combined with its lightweight design allows for easy installation and integration into various network environments. Performance-wise, the HP AM870A boasts an aggregate bandwidth of 680 Gbit/sec full duplex, calculated as 40 ports x 8.5 Gbit/sec x 2, ensuring high-speed data transfer across the network. Its fabric latency is remarkably low at 700 nanoseconds, minimizing delay and improving overall network performance. The switch supports a maximum frame size of 2112-byte payload, accommodating larger data packets for efficient transmission. Operational conditions for the HP AM870A are broad, supporting an operating temperature range from 0° to 40°C (32° to 104°F) and a non-operating temperature range from -25° to 70°C (-13° to 158°F). Humidity tolerance during operation is from 10 to 85 percent non-condensing, ensuring reliability in various environmental conditions. The switch can operate at altitudes up to 3000 meters (9842 feet) and be stored at altitudes up to 12 kilometers (39,370 feet), offering flexibility in deployment locations. Power requirements for the HP AM870A are also efficiently managed, with a maximum output of 91 Watts and a nominal input voltage range from 85 to 264VAC, universal. This power efficiency is critical for reducing operational costs in data centers. In summary, the HP AM870A is a high-capacity network switch designed for enterprise-level applications. Its combination of high-speed data transmission, flexible management options, and efficient power usage make it a suitable choice for organizations looking to enhance their network infrastructure's reliability and performance.
