Cisco and HP have worked together to develop an affordable, high-performance and scalable switch to bring the Cisco Catalyst Blade Switches to the HP BladeSystem c-Class blade server enclosure.

Available in two configurations, the 3120G and 3120X for HP, these switches are the next-generation Ethernet blade switch for the HP c-Class BladeSystem.

Cisco Catalyst 3120 Features: 

Cisco 3120G

    • 8 Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports: 4 10/100/1000BASE-T ports and 4 Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) Gigabit Ethernet ports
    • Wire speed switching on sixteen internal 1GB ports
    • Allows you to connect the switch to the existing network fabric using Gigabit Ethernet uplinks


    • Cisco Catalyst 1GbE 3120G Blade Switch

Cisco 3120X

    • 4 10/100/1000BASE-T ports and 2 X2-based 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports
