HP has recently announced its latest campus networking products that support 802.11ac Wave 2 access points and software-defined networking. The company also uncloaked the HP Network Visualiser SDN App as the latest addition to HP's SDN App Store.

The HP 5400R zl2 switch series v3 modules are designed to support the mobility requirements of today's campus networks by using HP's sixth-generation networking silicon. HP claims the ASIC provides four times better throughput and three times lower latency compared to the Cisco Catalyst 4507R-E.

HP also touted the Open Flow-supporting switch modules as providing better SDN scalability than the competition by processing up to 24 more flows, which supports multiple concurrent network services such as security and optimisation.

The 5400R v3 modules feature HP Smart Rate multi-gigabit ports to support 802.11ac Wave 2 gear without the need for new cabling. The modules include support for 2.5Gb/s and 5Gb/s Ethernet, which two industry groups are pushing to standardise.

The HP Network Visualiser SDN App integrates with Active Directory and is designed to speed IT troubleshooting by allowing administrators to identify problems without needing to look up a user's IP address or MAC address.

HP also updated its Network Protection SDN application by adding intrusion prevention as a service, and added capabilities to its Network Optimiser SDN application.

HP's switch modules will be available on May 1. The SDN application will be available in June.
