Management Security Features

The management security features of the 704642-B21 HPE Moonshot Switch 180 Ports Managed - Stackable Plug-In Module are designed to ensure that the switch is protected from unauthorized access and that network configurations and data remain secure.

One important management security feature of the switch is role-based access control (RBAC), which allows administrators to restrict access to specific switch functions and resources based on user roles and permissions. This helps to prevent unauthorized configuration changes and ensures that only authorized personnel can access sensitive data.

The switch also supports various authentication protocols, such as RADIUS and TACACS+, which allow administrators to control access to the switch based on user credentials. Additionally, the switch supports Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, which provide secure remote access to the switch management interface.

To further enhance security, the HPE Moonshot Switch 180 Ports Managed includes features such as DHCP snooping, Dynamic ARP Inspection (DAI), and IP Source Guard, which help prevent network attacks such as ARP spoofing and IP address spoofing.

The switch also supports port security features such as MAC address lockdown, which allows administrators to limit the number of MAC addresses that can be learned on a particular port, and 802.1X authentication, which provides authentication and authorization for devices connecting to the network.

Finally, the switch includes features such as Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), which help ensure network availability and prevent disruptions due to network topology changes.

High Compatibility

The high compatibility of the 704642-B21 HPE Moonshot Switch 180 Ports Managed - Stackable Plug-In Module refers to its ability to work seamlessly with a wide range of devices and systems. This switch is designed to integrate with other HPE Moonshot products and supports various networking protocols, making it highly versatile and adaptable to different environments.

The HPE Moonshot Switch 180 Ports Managed supports Ethernet, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) protocols, among others. It also supports virtualization technologies such as Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) and Network Virtualization using Generic Routing Encapsulation (NVGRE), allowing it to be deployed in virtualized environments.

In addition, the HPE Moonshot Switch 180 Ports Managed is designed to work with different operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Linux, and VMware ESXi. This means that it can be used in a variety of data center configurations and can support a wide range of applications and workloads.

Furthermore, the HPE Moonshot Switch 180 Ports Managed is stackable, which means that multiple switches can be connected together to create a single logical switch, increasing the capacity and flexibility of the network.

Power Requirements

The power requirements of the 704642-B21 HPE Moonshot Switch 180 Ports Managed - Stackable Plug-In Module are an important consideration when planning for deployment in a data center environment.

The switch is designed to operate on a DC power supply with a voltage range of 48V to 60V. The power supply must be capable of delivering a maximum power output of 2,900 watts to support the switch's operation and provide power to attached devices.

The switch includes redundant, hot-swappable power supplies, which help ensure high availability and prevent disruptions due to power supply failures. The power supplies can be replaced while the switch is operating, which allows for maintenance and upgrades without downtime.

The power consumption of the switch varies depending on the specific configuration and usage. At maximum configuration, with all ports in use and at full power, the switch can consume up to 1,600 watts of power. However, the actual power consumption will depend on the specific usage patterns of the network and the configuration of the switch.

To manage power consumption, the switch includes features such as Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), which reduces power consumption during periods of low network activity. The switch also includes intelligent power management features that allow administrators to monitor and manage power usage, ensuring that the switch operates efficiently and does not exceed power budgets.
