Rapid deployment and configuration
Help save time and deployment costs by simplifying your network rollout with PowerConnect™ 5500 series of Gigabit Ethernet switches. Automatically assign switch configuration and IP addresses via DHCP or local USB during initial rollout. You can configure up to eight switches in a stack without pressing a single key or setting up a console connection.
You'll enjoy a number of management options with the PowerConnect 5500 Series switches, including:
An industry-standard CLI
Remote management using an embedded web server
Support for SNMP-based management applications.
Help ensure that VoIP traffic is prioritized in the event of resource contention through the voice VLAN function. LLDP-Med provides detailed network topology records, emergency call service via IP phone location information and troubleshooting data.
Select from multiple security levels, with options that include such industry-standard features as:
• SSH/SSL management encryption • DHCP snooping • IP and MAC -based ACLs • Access password protection • Port-based MAC address alert and lock-down
High level security is provided through: • RADIUS remote authentication for switch management access • 802.1x authentication and TACACS+ • Management access filtering via management access profiles
The PowerConnect 5500 switches also help simplify security rollouts by allowing you to try your implementation before full enforcement is enabled, helping to smooth your transition to a secure campus.
Power over Ethernet
Help lower power consumption with the power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af PoE) capabilities of the PowerConnect 5548P. Designed to provide up to 15.4 Watts of power for network-attached devices, such as WLAN access points (WAPs) and voice over IP (VoIP) handsets, PoE can help simplify network installation and maintenance by reducing the need for power adapters and power planning.
