Product Review

The HP JD238C stands out for its high port density, supporting up to 480 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 160 1/10GbE ports, or 80 10GbE ports, and up to 40 40GbE ports, offering exceptional scalability for growing network demands. However, its considerable size and weight (211 lbs shipping weight and 16U rack height) may pose challenges for deployment in smaller or already crowded data centers. Additionally, while the inclusion of a spare fan assembly and dual power supply slots enhances its reliability and uptime, the operational noise level (up to 56.7 dB) could be a concern in environments where noise minimization is critical.


The HP JD238C is a high-capacity networking switch designed to meet the requirements of modern data centers and large enterprise networks. This device emphasizes scalability, performance, and flexibility, making it suitable for handling extensive network traffic and supporting various applications. At its core, the HP JD238C features 10 I/O module slots, allowing for a customizable setup that can support a maximum of 480 Gigabit Ethernet ports. This includes 480 autosensing 10/100/1000 ports, enabling seamless integration with existing network infrastructure. For networks demanding higher speeds, the switch accommodates up to 160 1/10GbE ports or 80 10GbE ports. Additionally, it offers the option for 40 40GbE ports, catering to environments requiring high bandwidth connectivity. The flexibility extends to the switch fabric, with 2 slots reserved for this purpose, enhancing the switch's processing capability and data throughput.
  • Supports up to 480 Gigabit Ethernet ports for extensive connectivity.
  • Flexible port configuration with options for 1/10GbE and 40GbE ports.
  • Dual switch fabric slots for enhanced data processing and throughput.
Power management is a critical aspect of the HP JD238C, which includes 2 power supply slots, requiring at least one power supply to operate. This setup ensures redundancy and reliability in power delivery to the switch. The package comes with a spare fan assembly (HPE 7510) and a JD216A fan tray, ensuring optimal cooling and operational efficiency under various load conditions. Designed for easy integration into standard networking environments, the HP JD238C has dimensions of 17.17 inches in width, 16.54 inches in depth, and 27.87 inches in height, fitting into a 16U rack space. With a shipping weight of 211 lb (95.71 kg), it is built for stability and durability within an EIA-standard 19-inch rack or compatible equipment cabinet. Operational conditions are a crucial consideration for networking hardware. The HP JD238C operates effectively within a temperature range of 32°F to 113°F (0°C to 45°C) and can withstand non-operating temperatures from -40°F to 158°F (-40°C to 70°C). Humidity tolerance ranges from 10% to 95%, noncondensing during operation, and from 5% to 95%, noncondensing for storage. Noise levels are kept within acceptable limits, with low-speed fan noise at 53.5 dB and high-speed fan noise at 56.7 dB, minimizing distractions in work environments. The switch is designed to work within a broad range of power supplies, supporting 100–120/200–240 Vac and accommodating current requirements of 16/50 A. With a power output of 1400 W, it ensures reliable performance across various operational scenarios. In summary, the HP JD238C is engineered for organizations requiring a high-performance, scalable, and flexible networking solution. Its extensive port capacity, power redundancy, and environmental tolerance make it an ideal choice for supporting critical network operations and future-proofing enterprise networks against evolving connectivity demands.
