  • New HPE 25GbE Network Adapters (for use in HPE ProLiant DL and Apollo Servers)
  • New HPE 25G Transceivers & Cables (SFP, QSFP, DAC)
  • New HPE FlexFabric 5950 fixed port multi-rate 10/25/40/50/100GbE 32 x QSFP28 Ethernet switch
  • New HPE FlexFabric 12900E HB modules, 36x100GbE module tripling our 100G density

HPE makes upgrading to 25/100GbE a “no-brainer” for customers - in that we can help boost their server/application performance while also delivering compelling data center economics (less complexity, server/switch ports, cables, and power).


For example migrating from 10GbE to HPE 25GbE provides; 

  • 56% increased performance at 27% TCO savings
  • 38% lower cabling complexity and 31% power savings
  • 40% more simultaneous HD 1080p videos using 25GbE cards

Lead customers who would immediately benefit from 25/100GbE include;

  • Cloud, Telco and Service Providers experiencing 10/40Gbps saturation
  • Financial and e-Commerce sites demanding increased performance
  • Enterprise moving into the next major Ethernet speed upgrade cycle

Some additional 25/100GbE use cases include; data centers using multicore / socket servers with 20+ VMs; IP based and/or all flash storage, RDMA/RoCE and HPC ultra-low-latency clusters, Network Functions Virtualization (DPDK) needing packet-processing at line-rate – should also consider 25/100GbE.
