The HP 2530 Switch Series consists of four fully managed Layer 2 edge switches, delivering cost-effective, reliable and secure connectivity for business networks. Traffic prioritization (IEEE 802.1p): allows real-time traffic classification with support for eight priority levels mapped to either two or four queues; uses weighted deficit round robin (WDRR) or strict priority (SP). Simplified QoS configuration: Port-based: prioritize traffic by specifying a port and priority level. VLAN-based: prioritize traffic by specifying a VLAN and priority level. 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 for all ingressed traffic, or for broadcast, multicast or unknown destination traffic.
