The HPE OfficeConnect 1420 Switch Series consists of unmanaged Gigabit Ethernet switches, for small business and others looking for plug-and-play basic Layer 2 connectivity for their network, including low-cost PoE+ and 10-Gigabit uplink models.

The HPE OfficeConnect 1420 Switch Series consists of unmanaged business-class Gigabit Ethernet switches for small business and others looking for plug-and-play basic Layer 2 connectivity for their network. The 1420 Switch Series includes nine Gigabit switches: 16-port 10/100/1000, 24-port 10/100/1000 with two SFP Gigabit ports, 24-port 10/100/1000 ports of which 12 are Power over Ethernet (PoE+) enabled with a total PoE power budget of 124W, and 24-port 10/100/1000 with two SFP+ 10GbE ports. The 1420 Switch Series also includes a 5-port 10/100/1000, 5-port 10/100/1000 with 4 out of 5 ports as PoE+ ports, an 8-port 10/100/1000, 8-port 10/100/1000 with 8 out of 8 ports as PoE+ ports and a simple 24 port 10/100/1000 switch. They are fanless for silent operation. They come with a limited lifetime Warranty.

HPE OfficeConnect 1420 switches have quality of service (QoS) support and IEEE 802.3x flow control features that improve network efficiency. Simplified plug-and-play convenience is supported by features such as auto-MDIX and auto-speed negotiation. Hewlett Packard Enterprise has innovated and combined the latest advances in silicon technology to bring you some of the most power- efficient switches. All models support the Energy Efficient Ethernet IEEE 802.3az standard, as well as auto power-down mode on idle ports and power saving on short-distance cables. With their fanless silent operation, these switches are ideal for office deployment. HPE OfficeConnect 1420 switches come with a limited lifetime warranty.

Key features

  • Unmanaged plug-and-play Gigabit Ethernet switching
  • Green features for low power consumption
  • Fanless design for silent operation
  • Quality of Service capabilities for improved network efficiency
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Standard Features

Ease of use

  • Unmanaged : provides plug-and-play simplicity
  • Auto-speed negotiation : selects individual port speed automatically, depending on client capabilities; removing the need for manual intervention enables simple plug-and-play operation
  • Comprehensive LED display with per-port indicators : provides an at-a-glance view of the status, activity, speed, and full-duplex operation of the switches
  • Flow control : helps ensure reliable communications during full-duplex operation
  • HPE/IEEE Auto-MDIX : automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all RJ-45 ports


  • Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 Connectivity supports high-speed Ethernet connections over highly affordable copper Category 5 cabling.
  • 10-Gigabit fiber connectivityFuture-proof 10-Gigabit technology allows high-speed fiber connection to servers or other switches, with connection flexibility using optional SFP+ or SFP transceivers.
  • IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE+)provides up to 30 W per port, which allows support of the latest PoE+-capable devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras, as well as any IEEE 802.3af compliant end device; reduces the cost of additional electrical cabling and circuits that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments (for PoE model)


  • Energy-efficient Ethernet support : supports new IEEE 802.3az standard; and allows lower power consumption, when operated with IEEE-compliant client devices in 100 Mb/s mode only
  • Half-/full-duplex auto-negotiating capability on every port : doubles the throughput of every port.
  • Jumbo frame support : allows frames up to 9,216 bytes to be switched through the network


  • Fanless design enables quiet operation for deployment in open spaces
  • Internal power supply delivers operational convenience and an environment suitable for business operations

Quality of Service (QoS)

  • IEEE 802.1p prioritization delivers data to devices, based on the priority and type of traffic
  • DiffServ Code Point (DSCP) supportallows real-time traffic prioritization, based on L3 TOS/DSCP parameters

Warranty and support

  • Limited Lifetime WarrantySee http://www.hpe.com/officeconnect/support for warranty and support information included with your product purchase.
