HPE E5500 switches deliver premium levels of performance, security, and reliability for robust switching at the enterprise network edge. The series consists of Layer 2/3/4 Fast Ethernet and Power over Ethernet switches, with advanced features that can accommodate the most demanding applications. They offer resilient and secure connectivity and the latest traffic-prioritization technologies to optimize applications on converged networks. Designed for maximum flexibility and scalability, they come with 24 or 48 10/100 ports, plus four active SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports for stacking and uplinks. They can be stacked up to eight units high in one location-or distributed over several sites up to 70 km (43.5 miles) apart and connected via Gigabit links to form a virtual "stack." One stack can provide up to 384 Fast Ethernet ports and may be managed centrally as a single-IP entity.

Key features:
- Enterprise-level performance;
- High availability for critical applications;
- Future-proof, standards-based switching;
- Multi-layer security.

Quality of Service (QoS)
- Traffic prioritization (IEEE 802.1p): allows real-time traffic classification into eight priority levels mapped to eight queues;
- Class of Service (CoS): sets the IEEE 802.1p priority tag based on IP address, IP Type of Service (ToS), Layer 3 protocol, TCP/UDP port number, source port, and DiffServ;
- Rate limiting: sets per-port ingress enforced maximums and per-port, per-queue guaranteed minimums.

Bandwidth shaping:
- Rate limiting: provides per-port, ingress-based enforced bandwidth maximums;
- Guaranteed minimums: provides per-port, per-queue egress-based guaranteed bandwidth minimums.

- Secure Web GUI: provides a secure, easy-to-use graphical interface for configuring the module via HTTPS;
- Command-line interface (CLI): provides a secure, easy-to-use command-line interface for configuring the module via SSH or a switch console; provides direct real-time session visibility;
- SNMPv1, v2c, and v3: facilitate centralized discovery, monitoring, and secure management of networking devices;
- 3Com-heritage Comware V3 Operating System: CLI and Web user interface in common with HPE E4XXX and E55XX series switches;
- Port mirroring: enables traffic on a port to be simultaneously sent to a network analyzer for monitoring.

- Auto-MDIX: automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100 ports;
- IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE): provides up to 15.4 W per port to IEEE 802.3af-compliant PoE-powered devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras;
- Gigabit uplinks: dual-personality ports for either 10/100/1000 or mini-GBIC SFP connectivity for increased connectivity flexibility.

- RMON (remote monitoring): provides advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events;
- Dual flash images: provides independent primary and secondary operating system files for backup while upgrading;
- Full-featured console: provides complete control of the switch with a familiar command-line interface (CLI);
- Web interface: allows configuration of the switch from any Web browser on the network;
- Multiple configuration files: allow multiple configuration files to be stored to flash image;
- Software updates: free downloads from the Web;
- Advanced stacking: locally connect up to eight E5500 switches using Gigabit ports and manage as a single entity; improves resiliency by spreading aggregated links across multiple stacked units;
- Virtual stacking capability: single IP address management for a virtual stack of up to 255 Comware-based 3Com legacy devices, including HPE E4XXX and E55XX series switches.

Layer 2 switching
- VLAN support and tagging: support IEEE 802.1Q, with 4094 simultaneous VLAN IDs;
- GARP VLAN Registration Protocol (GVRP): allows automatic learning and dynamic assignment of VLANs;
- Jumbo packet support: supports up to 9220-byte frame size to improve performance of large data transfers;
- IEEE 802.1ad QinQ: increases the scalability of an Ethernet network by providing a hierarchical structure; connects multiple LANs on a high-speed campus or metro network.

Layer 3 routing
- Layer 3 IP routing: provides routing of IP at media speed; supports static routes, RIP, RIPv2, and OSPF;
- OSPF-ECMP (Equal-Cost Multipath): enables multiple equal-cost links in OSPF environment to increase link redundancy and scale bandwidth.

- Access control lists (ACLs): provide IP Layer 3 filtering based on source/destination IP address/subnet and source/destination TCP/UDP port number;
- RADIUS/TACACS+: eases switch management security administration by using a password authentication server;
- Secure Shell (SSHv2): encrypts all transmitted data for secure, remote command-line interface (CLI) access over IP networks;
- IEEE 802.1X and RADIUS network logins: control port-based access for authentication and accountability;
- Port security: allows access only to specified MAC addresses, which can be learned or specified by the administrator Switch management logon security: can require either RADIUS or TACACS+ authentication for secure switch CLI logon;
- Secure management access: securely encrypts all access methods (CLI, GUI, or MIB) through SSHv2, SSL, and/or SNMPv3;
- Custom banner: displays security policy when users log in to the switch;
- Management password: provides security so that only authorized access to the Web browser interface is allowed;
- DHCP protection: blocks DHCP packets from unauthorized DHCP servers, preventing denial-of-service attacks;
- Dynamic ARP protection: blocks ARP broadcasts from unauthorized hosts, preventing eavesdropping or theft of network data;
- Automatic VLAN assignment: automatically assigns users to the appropriate VLAN based on their identity and location and the time of day Secure Web management with HTTPS and SSL: encrypts all HTTP traffic, allowing secure access to the browser-based management GUI in the switch.

- LLDP-MED (Media Endpoint Discovery): is a standard extension of LLDP that stores values for parameters such as QoS and VLAN to automatically configure network devices such as IP phones;
- IEEE 802.1AB Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP): is an automated device discovery protocol for easy mapping by network management applications;
- Automated voice VLAN assignment: recognizes IP phones and automatically assigns voice traffic to a dedicated VLAN for IP phones.
