HPE/H3C 5900AF switches

HPE 5900AF series switches was announced in 2012.
Based on BCM56840 StrataXGS® Trident+.

Also was selling under H3C brand – H3C S5820V2. Looks similar, same software, just minor cli branding difference.

HP offers model with interesting ports layout:
FlexFabric 5900AF-48G-4XG-2QSFP+ (JG510A)
48 copper 10/100/1000 + 4 10G SFP+ and 2QSFP+ ports.

All other in this series – classical TOR switches for 2011-2012y:
FlexFabric 5900AF-48XG-4QSFP+ (JC772A) – 48 SFP+ и 4QSFP+
FlexFabric 5900AF-48XGT-4QSFP+ (JG336A) – 48 медных 10G и 4QSFP+

+ Low depth 46cm and PHY-less model:
HPE FlexFabric 5900-48XG-4QSFP+ (JH337A) – 48 SFP+ и 4QSFP+

Here you need to pay attention to the dimensions – all switches, except for the JH337A, have a depth of 65.99 cm.
So rack need be at least 800cm depth, and 1000cm preferred.

It also supports Intelligent Resilient Fabric (IRF), a stacking/virtual chassis feature.
