The PowerConnect 5424 delivers 24 ports of wire-speed, Gigabit Ethernet with advanced security and enterprise management features to help meet the needs of organizations of all sizes. Providing 48 Gbps for switching capacity and 35.6 Mbps forwarding rate, the PowerConnect provides ample performance for server aggregation, wiring closets and iSCSI storage. Combo ports — four ports of either small form-factor pluggable (SFP) Fiber support or 10/100/1000 Copper support — provide for connectivity flexibility and long-haul connections.
The PowerConnect 5400-series is the world’s first switch portfolio to automatically optimize itself for iSCSI storage. The switches automatically detect whether traffic flows are iSCSI-based and, if so, assigns that traffic flow a high-level of quality of service (QoS). This helps ensure that iSCSI storage traffic is prioritized in the event of resource contention. The 5400-series also provides information about all active iSCSI sessions to allow for easier management and optimization.
The PowerConnect 5424 offers multiple options and levels of security. Industry-standard features include Secure Shell/Secure Socket Layer (SSH/SSL) Management Encryptions, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Snooping, IP and Media Access Control (MAC)-based access control lists (ACLs) access password protection, and Port-based MAC Address alert and lock-down. Higher level security is provided through Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) for switch management access, 802.1x Authentication and TACACS+, and Management access filtering through Management Access Profiles.
Supports open industry standards including quality of service (L3-aware), multicast support, link aggregation, and dynamic virtual LAN (VLAN) configurations.
Voice-VLAN functionality ensures voice over IP (VoIP) traffic is prioritized in the event of resource contention. LLDP-Med provides detailed network topology information, emergency call service using IP phone location information and troubleshooting information.
