  • Complete Session Logging – Provides detailed information for problem identification and resolution
  • Dual Flash Images – Provides independent primary and secondary operating system files for backup while upgrading
  • Port Mirroring – Enables traffic on a port to be simultaneously sent to a network analyzer for monitoring
  • Management Security – Restricts access to critical configuration commands; offers multiple privilege levels with password protection; ACLs provide telnet and SNMP access; local and remote syslog capabilities allow logging of all access
  • Network Time Protocol (NTP) – Synchronizes timekeeping among distributed time servers and clients; keeps timekeeping consistent among all clock-dependent devices within the network so that the devices can provide diverse applications based on the consistent time
  • IEEE 802.1AB Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) – Advertises and receives management information from adjacent devices on a network, facilitating easy mapping by network management applications
  • Limited CLI – Enables users to quickly deploy and troubleshoot devices in the network
  • RMON – Provides advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms, and events
  • Default DHCP Client Mode – Allows the switch to be directly connected to a network, enabling plug-and-play operation; in absence of DHCP server on the network, the switch will fall back to a unique static address determined by the MAC address of the switch

Quality of Service (QoS)

  • Broadcast Control – Allows limitation of broadcast traffic rate to cut down on unwanted network broadcast traffic
  • Rate Limiting – Sets per-port ingress enforced maximums and per-port, per-queue minimums
  • Traffic Prioritization – Provides time-sensitive packets (like VoIP and video) with priority over other traffic based on DSCP or IEEE 802.1p classification; packets are mapped to four hardware queues for more effective throughput


  • IPv6 –
    • IPv6 Host – Enables switches to be managed and deployed at the IPv6 network's edge
    • IPv6 Routing – Supports IPv6 static routes
    • MLD Snooping – Forwards IPv6 multicast traffic to the appropriate interface, preventing traffic flooding
    • IPv6 ACL/QoS – Supports ACL and QoS for IPv6 network traffic
  • Auto-MDI/MDIX – Adjusts automatically for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100/1000 ports
  • IEEE 802.3X Flow Control – Provides a flow throttling mechanism propagated through the network to prevent packet loss at a congested node
  • IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) Ready – Provides up to 15.4W per port to power standards-compliant IP phones, wireless LAN access points, Web cameras, and more (all PoE models)
  • IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE+) – Provides up to 30W per port which allows support of the latest PoE-plus-capable devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras, as well as any IEEE 802.3af-compliant end device; eliminates the cost of additional electrical cabling and circuits that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments. (Note: applies to all PoE models, except the two 24G-PoE models which support a pre-standard implementation of PoE+)
  • Packet Storm Protection – Protects against broadcast, multicast, or unicast storms with user-defined thresholds
  • Cable Diagnostics – Detects cable issues remotely, using a browser-based tool


  • Advanced Access Control Lists (ACLs) – Enables network traffic filtering and enhances network control using MAC- and IP-based ACLs; time-based ACLs allow for greater flexibility with managing network access
  • Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) – Encrypts all HTTP traffic, allowing secure access to the browser-based management GUI in the switch
  • IEEE 802.1X and RADIUS Network Logins – Controls port-based access for authentication and accountability
  • Automatic VLAN Assignment – Assigns users automatically to the appropriate VLAN based on their identity, location and time of day
  • STP BPDU Port Protection – Blocks Bridge Protocol Data Units (BPDUs) on ports that do not require BPDUs, preventing forged BPDU attacks
  • STP Root Guard – Protects the root bridge from malicious attacks or configuration mistakes
  • Automatic Denial-of-Service Protection – Monitors for malicious attacks and protects the network by blocking the attacks
  • Management Password – Provides security so that only authorized access to the Web browser interface is allowed


  • Half- & Full-Duplex Auto-Negotiating Capability on Every Port – Doubles the throughput of every port
  • Selectable Queue Configurations – Allows for increased performance by selecting the number of queues and associated memory buffering that best meet the requirements of the network applications
  • IGMP Snooping – Improves network performance through multicast filtering, instead of flooding traffic to all ports
  • Fiber Uplink – Provides greater distance connectivity using Gigabit fiber uplinks

Layer 2 Switching

  • VLAN Support and Tagging – Supports IEEE 802.1Q (4,094 VLAN IDs) and 256 VLANs simultaneously
  • Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) – Supports standard IEEE 802.1D STP, IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) for faster convergence, and IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP)
  • BPDU Filtering – Drops BPDU packets when STP is enabled globally but disabled on a specific port
  • Jumbo Frame Support – Supports up to 10 kilobyte frame size to improve the performance of large data transfers

Layer 3 Services

  • Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) – Determines the MAC address of another IP host in the same subnet; supports static ARPs; gratuitous ARP allows detection of duplicate IP addresses; proxy ARP allows normal ARP operation between subnets or when subnets are separated by a Layer 2 network
  • DHCP Relay – Simplifies management of DHCP addresses in networks with multiple subnets

Layer 3 Routing

  • NEW Static IPv4/IPv6 Routing – Provides basic routing (supporting up to 32 static routes and 8 virtual VLAN interfaces); allows manual configuration of routing

Resiliency and high availability

  • Available Redundant Power Supply – Provides additional PoE of up to 740W for high-power applications like HP Gigabit Ethernet IntelliJack switches; the HP RPS1600 Redundant Power System (JG136A), sold separately, is only for use with the 1910-24G-PoE (365W) Switch model
  • Link Aggregation – Groups together multiple ports (up to a maximum of two ports) automatically using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), or manually, to form an ultra-high-bandwidth connection to the network backbone; helps prevent traffic bottlenecks


  • LLDP-MED (Media Endpoint Discovery) – Defines a standard extension of LLDP that stores values for parameters such as QoS and VLAN to automatically configure network devices such as IP phones
  • PoE Allocations – Supports multiple methods (automatic, IEEE 802.3af class, LLDP-MED, or user-specified) to allocate PoE power for more efficient energy savings
  • Auto Voice VLAN – Recognizes IP phones and automatically assigns voice traffic to dedicated VLAN for IP phones

Additional Information

  • Green Initiative Support – Provides support for RoHS and WEEE regulations
  • Green IT and Power – Improves energy efficiency through the use of the latest advances in silicon development; shuts off unused ports and utilizes variable-speed fans, reducing energy costs
