Full Description


ProCurve Switch 5400zl series is ideal for early majority adopters of advanced technology who are feature-driven, primarily in the areas of security, mobility, and convergence. Designed to be deployed at the edge of the LAN, the 5400 series consists of advanced Layer 2/3/4 switches that embody the Adaptive EDGE Architecture, where intelligence and decisions are made at the edge of the network and effective control is provided from the center. With a 10/100/1000Base-T interface, integrated PoE, 10-GbE capability, and chassis and stackable form factors, the 5400 switches offer scalability and ease of deployment, operation, and maintenance for any network environment. While the competitors (Cisco, 3Com, Extreme, and Foundry) ask customers to compromise with different levels of pricing, performance (10/100 vs. Gigabit), technology (PoE vs. non-PoE), and investment protection (10-GbE capability), the 5400 series offers excellent flexibility and investment protection.

  • 3500yl/5400zl architecture: 115 to 692 Gbps crossbar switching fabric provides intra- and inter-module switching with 36 to 428 million pps throughput on purpose-built ProVision ASIC
  • 802.3af Power over Ethernet: provides up to 15.4 W per port to power compliant PoE devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras
  • Pre-standard PoE support: detects and provides power to pre-standard PoE devices
  • Jumbo frames: on Gigabit and 10-Gigabit ports, allow high-performance remote backup and disaster-recovery services
  • ProCurve/IEEE Auto-MDIX: automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100/1000 ports
  • Advanced classifier-based QoS
    Classifies traffic using multiple match criteria based on layer 2, 3, and 4 information; applies QoS policies such as setting priority level and rate limit to selected traffic on a per-port or per-VLAN basis.
  • Layer 4 prioritization
    Enables prioritization based on TCP/UDP port numbers.
  • Traffic prioritization
    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.
  • Uni-Directional Link Detection (UDLD)
    Monitors cable between two switches and shuts down the ports on both ends if the cable is broken, turning the bi-directional link into uni-directional; this prevents network problems such as loops.
  • High-speed/capacity architecture
    691.2 Gbps crossbar switching fabric provides intra-module and inter-module switching with 480.3 million pps throughput on the purpose-built ProVision ASICs.
  • Server-to-switch distributed trunking
    Allows a server to connect to two switches with one logical trunk that consists of multiple physical connections; enables load-balancing and increases resiliency.
  • Secure management access
    Securely encrypts all access methods (CLI, GUI, or MIB) through SSHv2, SSL, and/or SNMPv3.
  • Switch CPU protection
    Provides automatic protection against malicious network traffic trying to shut down the switch.

Are we out on price?

We check our prices daily against a wide range of competitors to try to bring you the best deal. However, if you've spotted a better price offered by one of our competitors, please let us know and we'll do our very best to match it.

Price Match Challenge

Is the advertised price & availability genuine?

The IT sector is littered with companies who don't hold stock. Their websites advertise products that are sourced from third party suppliers. Pricing and availability data on such sites is typically retrieved from files or feeds which are often not refreshed regularly enough. The result? Cancelled orders, long lead times and disgruntled customers.

Evaris is a major stockholder with full transparency into our stockholding and pricing. Our website is refreshed on a 15-minute cycle 24/7 so the pricing and availability you see online is both accurate and reliable.

We recommend you double check a cheaper price elsewhere is accurate and based on physical stock that can be shipped immediately before placing your order.

Do they really have the product in stock?

We show true stock counts on our website, not woolly messages like ‘in stock' or ‘available to order'. Stock levels are updated every 15 minutes 24/7 so you can see exactly how many units we have sat in our warehouse available for immediate despatch.

And speaking of shipping, did you know we offer same day deliveries? You can choose this or other timed services during checkout on our website or contact our sales team for a quote. Handy when you need the goods in a hurry!

Do they specify product condition?

Most web stores fail to specify the stock condition of the products they advertise for sale. It seems reasonable to assume that all products are brand new, unused units supplied in the sealed, original manufacturer packaging and protected by the full warranty but this isn't always the case.

A heavily discounted price can be a sign that the product in question may be a used or refurbished unit. Open/damaged box and ‘ex demo' units are also rife in the marketplace and warranty cover on such goods will be variable so it's wise to check what you're getting before committing to any purchase.

Evaris displays the product condition on all our product pages. As well as detailing what the condition means, we specify the level of warranty condition allowing you to make an informed buying decision.

Ensure you compare like for like when shopping around for prices online.

Is the product covered by warranty?

All brand new products come with a full manufacturer warranty, right? Not always; it depends where the products were sourced from. You may have heard of the grey market or parallel imports? Manufacturers often stipulate the geographical regions in which their products are designated for sale. Unscrupulous suppliers seek to source goods from outside of these regions at cheaper costs which they pass on via cheaper prices. The downside is that the manufacturer might not honour the warranty in the event of a support call. Grey kit does not qualify for warranty support and if it fails, you could be significantly out of pocket.

All products offered for sale at Evaris are sourced from legitimate channels and are covered by warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which can be validated on the manufacturer's website to ensure warranty cover is in place prior to purchase.

Ask any potential supplier if they can supply serial numbers ahead of purchase. Any legitimate stockholder who has sourced the goods from the proper channels should be able and happy to do so.

Is the competitor trustworthy?

Look beyond the price and establish whether the company behind the product is a bona fide organisation that you can return to should you encounter issues down the line. This is particularly important if you've never heard of them before. It's relatively easy to set up a web shop nowadays which makes it difficult to differentiate between a one-man band operating out of a home office and a well-established, reputable bricks and mortar business. Sales T&Cs, returns policy and aftercare service are probably important areas for you to consider.

Evaris is an ISO 9001 certified company committed to supplying products and services that consistently meet our customers' requirements and expectations. We are a Feefo Commended Merchant thanks to our consistently high customer service scores gathered independently from genuine purchase verified customers. We build long standing relationships with organisations of all types and sizes; take a look at our case studies for examples of projects we've worked on in both the private and public sector.
