Product Review

The HP J9855A switch offers a comprehensive range of connectivity options, including 48 RJ-45 autosensing 10/100/1000 ports and 2 SFP+ ports for high-speed connections, catering to diverse network requirements. However, its operational temperature range is limited to 0-45°C, potentially restricting deployment in environments with extreme temperatures. Additionally, while the switch's power efficiency is highlighted by a maximum power rating of 55.1 W, organizations with high-density deployments might find the lack of modular power options a limitation.


The HP J9855A is a networking switch designed to meet the demands of modern business environments, offering a combination of performance, scalability, and efficiency. This product overview focuses on the hardware specifications that contribute to its functionality and reliability in various networking scenarios. At the core of its connectivity options, the HP J9855A features 48 RJ-45 autosensing 10/100/1000 ports supporting standards such as IEEE 802.3 Type 10BASE-T, IEEE 802.3u Type 100BASE-TX, and IEEE 802.3ab Type 1000BASE-T. These ports enable the switch to automatically adjust for the optimal speed and duplex, with 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX supporting half or full duplex and 1000BASE-T supporting full duplex only. Additionally, the switch includes 2 SFP+ fixed ports that support both 1000 Mbps and 10 Gbps connections, providing flexibility for uplink or stacking purposes. A notable feature is the dual-personality serial console port, which can function as an RJ-45 or USB micro-B port. This versatility aids in the easy management and configuration of the switch, catering to various operational preferences. - Dimensions: The HP J9855A has a compact form factor, with dimensions of 44.3 cm in width, 25.4 cm in depth, and a height of 4.45 cm, conforming to the standard 1U height for rack mounting. - Weight: It weighs approximately 3.08 kg (7.1 lb), making it relatively lightweight and easy to handle during installation or maintenance. - Power Specifications: The switch operates within a voltage range of 100 - 127 / 200 - 240 V ac, with a current draw of 0.9/0.5 A depending on the voltage. It has an idle power consumption of 33.3 W and a maximum power rating of 55.1 W. The maximum heat dissipation is rated at 189 BTU/hr. Environmental tolerances include a wide operating temperature range from 0° C (32° F) to 45°C (113°F) and a non-operating temperature range from -40° C (-40° F) to 70°C (158°F).
