Product overview

The HPE FlexFabric 5700 Switch Series is a family of high-performance, low-latency access switches aimed at expanding port connectivity while adding local switching capacity. The switch is part of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise FlexNetwork architecture’s FlexFabric solution.

Ideally suited for deployment at the server access layer of large and medium sized enterprise data centers. The HPE FlexFabric 5700 Switch Series delivers lower TCO while enhancing networking performance to support demanding virtualized applications and server-to-server traffic. Resilience and ease of management come hand-in-hand with the FlexFabric 5700. While IRF reduces management complexities by up to 88 percent, it also delivers agility with <50 msec convergence time.

Features and benefitsQuality of service (QoS)

• Powerful QoS features

  • –  Flexible classification

    Flow classification based on source MAC, destination MAC, source IP (IPv4/IPv6), destination IP, port, protocol, and VLAN

  • –  Feature queue scheduling

    Provides support for strict priority (SP), weighted deficit round robin (WDRR), weighted fair queuing (WFQ), SP+WDRR, and SP+WFQ. Supports Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN) and weighted random early detection (WRED)

    Data center-optimized

  • Versatile server connectivity

    The HPE FlexFabric 5700 Switch Series enables scaling of the server edge with 1GbE and 10GbE ToR deployments to new heights with high-density 32- and 48-port solutions delivered in a
    1RU form factor. These switches can be set up as standalone layer 2 and lite layer 3 switches. The high server port density of the 5700 Switch is backed by 40GbE QSFP+ uplinks to deliver the availability of needed bandwidth for demanding applications. Each 40GbE QSFP+ port can also be configured as four 10GbE ports by using a 40GbE-to-10GbE splitter cable

  • High-performance switching

    Cut-through and non-blocking architecture delivers low latency (~1.5 microsecond for 10GbE) for very demanding enterprise applications. The FlexFabric 5700 switches also deliver high-performance switching capacity and wire-speed packet forwarding. Local switching capacity and packet forwarding enable the switch to participate in the network and enhance networking capacity available for servers. This is in contrast to competing port extenders that offer no local switching capacity

  • Higher scalability

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise IRF technology simplifies the architecture of server access networks; up to nine FlexFabric 5700 physical switches can be combined into one virtual switch configuration and are managed using a single IP address. IRF enables this switch to deliver the unmatched scalability of virtualized switches and flatter two-tier networks, which reduces cost and complexity

  • Advanced modular network operating system

    Comware v7 network operating system’s modular design and multiple processes bring native high stability, independent process monitoring, and a restart; the OS also allows individual software modules to be upgraded for higher availability and supports enhanced serviceability functions like hitless software upgrades with single-chassis In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU)

  • TRILL and EVB and VEPA

    TRansparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) is supported to increase the scale of enterprise data centers; Edge Virtual Bridging with Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregator (EVB/VEPA) provides connectivity into the virtual environment for a data center-ready environment



The HP Flex Fabric 5700-40XG-2QSFP+ Switch has 40 1G/10G SFP+ and 2 QSFP+-ports, dual hot-pluggable power supplies and fan trays, and ultra-low-latency. It is ideally suited for deployment at the server access layer in large enterprise data centers
