HPE FlexNetwork 5130 EI Switch Series

The HPE FlexNetwork 5130 EI Switch Series comprises Gigabit Ethernet switches that support static and RIP Layer 3 routing, diversified services, and IPv6 forwarding, as well as provide four 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) interfaces.

Unique Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) technology creates a virtual fabric by managing several switches as one logical device, which increases network resilience, performance, and availability, while reducing operational complexity. These switches provide Gigabit Ethernet access and can be used at the edge of a network or to connect server clusters in small data centers. 

High availability, simplified management, and comprehensive security control policies are among the key features that distinguish this series.

Key features

  • Fixed 10GbE ports for high-speed stacking or uplinks
  • Support for multiple services
  • Comprehensive security control policies
  • Diversified quality of service (QoS) policies
  • Excellent manageability

Features and benefits

Software-defined networking

  • OpenFlow : supports OpenFlow 1.3 specification to enable SDN by allowing separation of the data (packet forwarding) and control (routing decision) paths

Quality of Service (QoS)

  • Broadcast control : allows limitation of broadcast traffic rate to cut down on unwanted network broadcast traffic
  • Advanced classifier-based QoS : classifies traffic using multiple match criteria based on Layer 2, 3, and 4 information; applies QoS policies such as setting priority level and rate limit to selected traffic on a port, VLAN, or whole switch
  • Powerful QoS feature : supports the following congestion actions: strict priority (SP) queuing, weighted round robin (WRR), and SP+WRR
  • Traffic policing : supports Committed Access Rate (CAR) and line rate


  • Auto-MDIX : automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100/1000 ports
  • Flow control : provides back pressure using standard IEEE 802.3x, reducing congestion in heavy traffic situations
  • High-density connectivity : provides up to 48 fixed 10/100/1000BASE-T ports in a Layer 2/Layer 3 switch
  • IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE+) support : simplifies deployment and dramatically reduces installation costs by helping to eliminate the time and cost involved in supplying local power at each access point location
  • Ethernet operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) : detects data link layer problems that occurred in the "last mile" using the IEEE 802.3ah OAM standard; monitors the status of the link between two devices

Resiliency and high availability

  • Separate data and control paths : separates control from services and keeps service processing isolated; increases security and performance
  • External redundant power supply : provides high reliability
  • Smart link : allows 100 ms failover between links
  • Spanning Tree/MSTP, RSTP : provides redundant links while preventing network loops; supports up to 64 instances of MSTP
  • Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF) : creates virtual resilient switching fabrics, where two or more switches perform as a single L2 switch and L3 router; switches do not have to be co-located and can be part of a disaster-recovery system; servers or switches can be attached using standard LACP for automatic load balancing and high availability; can eliminate the need for complex protocols like Spanning Tree Protocol, Equal-Cost Multipath (ECMP), or VRRP, thereby simplifying network operation

Layer 3 routing

  • Static IP routing : provides manually configured routing for both IPv4 and IPv6 networks
  • Routing Information Protocol (RIP) : uses a distance vector algorithm with UDP packets for route determination; supports RIPv1 and RIPv2 routing; includes loop protection

  • sFlow (RFC 3176) : provides scalable ASIC-based wirespeed network monitoring and accounting with no impact on network performance; this allows network operators to gather a variety of sophisticated network statistics and information for capacity planning and real-time network monitoring purposes
  • Management VLAN : segments traffic to and from management interfaces, including CLI/telnet, a Web browser interface, and SNMP
  • Remote intelligent mirroring : mirrors ingress/egress ACL-selected traffic from a switch port or VLAN to a local or remote switch port anywhere on the network
  • Device Link Detection Protocol (DLDP) : monitors a cable between two compatible switches and shuts down the ports on both ends if the cable is broken, which prevents network problems such as loops
  • IPv6 management : provides future-proof networking because the switch is capable of being managed whether the attached network is running IPv4 or IPv6; supports pingv6, tracertv6, Telnetv6, TFTPv6, DNSv6, syslogv6, FTPv6, SNMPv6, DHCPv6, and RADIUS for IPv6
  • Troubleshooting : ingress and egress port monitoring enables network problem-solving; virtual cable tests provide visibility into cable problems
  • HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC) : integrates fault management, element configuration, and network monitoring from a central vantage point; built-in support for third-party devices enables network administrators to centrally manage all network elements with a variety of automated tasks, including discovery, categorization, baseline configurations, and software images; the software also provides configuration comparison tools, version tracking, change alerts, and more
  • Network Management : SNMP v1/v2c/v3, MIB-II with Traps, and RADIUS Authentication Client MIB (RFC 2618); embedded HTML management tool with secure access


  • Access control lists (ACLs) : provides IP Layer 2 to Layer 4 traffic filtering; supports global ACL, VLAN ACL, port ACL, and IPv6 ACL

  • MAC-based authentication : client is authenticated with the RADIUS server based on the client's MAC address
  • Identity-driven security and access control
    • Per-user ACLs : permits or denies user access to specific network resources based on user identity and time of day, allowing multiple types of users on the same network to access specific network services without risking network security or providing unauthorized access to sensitive data
    • Automatic VLAN assignment : automatically assigns users to the appropriate VLAN based on their identities Secure management access delivers secure encryption of all access methods (CLI, GUI, or MIB) through SSHv2, SSL, HTTPS and/or SNMPv3
  • Secure FTP/ SCP : allows secure file transfer to and from the switch; protects against unwanted file downloads or unauthorized copying of a switch configuration file
  • Guest VLAN provides a browser-based environment to authenticated clients that is similar to IEEE 802.1X
