HP Procurve 6120xg Blade Switch: An Overview
The HP Procurve 6120xg Blade Switch is a managed switch that is designed to be used in data centers or server rooms. It is part of the HP Procurve line of switches, which is a popular choice among IT professionals due to its reliability and performance.
This particular model, the 708069-001, is a blade switch, which means it is designed to be installed in a blade server enclosure. It has eight SFP ports and one 10GBASE-CX4 port, making it suitable for connecting multiple servers and storage devices.
Managed Switch: Why it Matters
A managed switch is a type of network switch that allows the administrator to control and monitor the network. It provides more features and options compared to an unmanaged switch, such as the ability to set up VLANs, prioritize traffic, and limit access to the network. A managed switch can also detect and prevent network loops and other issues that could cause network downtime.
The HP Procurve 6120xg Blade Switch is a managed switch, which means it provides all of these features and more. With the ability to monitor and control the network, it is easier to troubleshoot problems and optimize the performance of the network.
8 SFP Ports: Flexible Connectivity
The HP Procurve 6120xg Blade Switch comes with eight SFP ports, which provide flexibility when connecting devices to the network. SFP stands for Small Form-factor Pluggable, and it is a type of transceiver that allows a device to be connected to a network using different types of fiber optic or copper cables.
The eight SFP ports on this switch allow for multiple devices to be connected, making it ideal for use in a data center or server room. It is also possible to use SFP modules with different cable types, such as multimode or single-mode fiber, or copper cables, depending on the specific needs of the network.
1 10GBASE-CX4 Port: High-Speed Connectivity
The HP Procurve 6120xg Blade Switch also comes with one 10GBASE-CX4 port, which provides high-speed connectivity for devices that require high bandwidth. This port can be used to connect devices such as storage arrays, servers, or high-performance computing clusters.
10GBASE-CX4 is a type of 10 Gigabit Ethernet standard that uses copper cables to provide high-speed connectivity. It is capable of providing speeds up to 10 Gbps, making it ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications.
Desktop Form Factor: Space-Saving Design
The HP Procurve 6120xg Blade Switch is designed to be used as a desktop switch, which means it can be placed on a desk or shelf. This form factor makes it ideal for use in small data centers or server rooms, where space is limited.
The desktop form factor also makes it easy to install and set up, as it does not require any special mounting equipment or racks. This can save time and money, as well as make it easier to move the switch if necessary.
Overall the HP Procurve 6120xg Blade Switch is a reliable and high-performance managed switch that is ideal for use in data centers or server rooms. With its eight SFP ports and one 10GBASE-CX4 port, it provides flexible and high-speed connectivity for multiple devices.
The managed switch features allow for better control and monitoring of the network, making it easier to troubleshoot problems and optimize performance. The desktop form factor also makes it a space-saving and easy-to-install option for small data centers or server rooms. Overall, the HP Procurve 6120xg Blade Switch is a great choice for IT professionals looking for a reliable and high-performance switch for their network.

About Refurbished Products
Different Types of Switches
Networking switches vary widely depending on the number of devices they can support, network bandwidth/speed, and form factor. Switches for small offices will have anything between 4 and 8 ports and can fit on a desk. For larger office network implementation, switches may have 24 ports, 48 ports, 96 ports, and 128 ports and are rack-mountable between 1U and 4U. Switches come in different types depending on the network speed and tasks they support. These include 40/100 Gbps, 10 Gigabit (up to 10000 Mbps), Gigabit Ethernet (up to 1000 Mbps), Power over Ethernet, and Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps).
The unmanaged switches offer fixed configurations on a plug-and-play basis. It is the most basic switch and there are a few choices in the market. These switches are affordable, but the basic features make them inappropriate for enterprise applications.
The number of features and level of functionality improves with managed switches, making them ideal for enterprise and business applications. These switches are built with the command-line interface for ease of configuration. Equally, they support SNMP agents that come in handy when troubleshooting network issues.
The security on managed switches is better and will protect different types of traffic. Other features include support for virtual LANs, IP routing, and quality of service settings. Managed switches are more expensive compared to all other types of switches.
Smart switches refer to switches that possess more features than those unmanaged switches but do not have the full features of managed switches. Smart switches are more cost-effective than managed switches.
Some of the limitations of the smart switches are a lack of telnet access support, Web GUIs, and a lack of many features for VLANs. They are affordable compared to a fully managed switch and are suitable for a smaller computer network.
Modular switches allow the addition of expansion modules as the network expands. The expansion modules allow for more networked devices but are application-specific. They may include wireless access points, firewalls, or network analysis tools. The flexibility of a modular networking switch comes at a higher cost.
