FAST ETHERNET POE SWITCH
3Com OfficeConnect Managed Fast Ethernet PoE Switch
OVERVIEW
The 3Com® OfficeConnect® Managed Fast Ethernet
PoE Switch delivers Layer 2 enterprise-class Fast
Ethernet switching solutions, customized and priced
for small and mid-sized organizations, in a compact
and quiet 13” desktop enclosure.
This managed switch offers tremendous value to
small and medium businesses looking for a low cost
solution who need a level of control over their network
not offered by unmanaged switching products, without
sacrificing the advanced functionality normally found
on higher-end managed switching products.
KEY BENEFITS
LAYER 2 SWITCHING WITH ADVANCED FEATURES
The OfficeConnect Managed Fast Ethernet PoE Switch
helps build a voice ready network—with 3Com’s
unique auto-voice VLAN, advanced voice QoS, SNMPbased management, Power over Ethernet (PoE) and
other features.
This switch has eight PoE-enabled 10/100 ports, and one
dual-purpose Gigabit port (configurable as 10/100/1000
copper or SFP-based fiber) to connect to highperformance computers, servers, or network backbones.
To ensure optimal use of the network bandwidth and
deliver maximum voice and data quality, traffic flow
can be directed according to the needs of the business
using Spanning Tree and Rapid Spanning Tree, traffic
prioritization, priority queuing and VLANs.
Link aggregation can be done via IEEE 802.3ad LACP
or manually, allowing ports to be grouped together to
form an ultra-high-bandwidth connection that greatly
expands bandwidth capacity to the network core or
other parts of the network.
ENTERPRISE-QUALITY SECURITY
Enterprise-quality security is provided with IEEE
802.1X network login and and Access Control Lists
(ACLs), which enable usage policies via the switch at
each point of access to the network. All management
communications are encrypted with HTTPS.
POWER OVER ETHERNET
The OfficeConnect Managed Fast Ethernet PoE Switch
provides inline power to attached devices—access
points, Voice over IP (VoIP) phones, IP security
cameras, etc.—via industry-standard IEEE 802.3af PoE
over a single Ethernet cable, resulting in significant
deployment cost savings. The switch also supports
pre-std IEEE 802.3at PoE plus which enables the port
to drive up to 29.6 W per port.
NO SWITCH SETUP REQUIRED
The OfficeConnect Managed Fast Ethernet PoE Switch
is operational straight out-of-the-box; as long as
default settings are acceptable, there is no need to
configure it. If desired, the switch can be configured
using a web browser, console port, or SNMP
management software.
ENHANCED INTUITIVE MANAGEMENT OPTIONS
For networks that require more control, the switch
web management interface provides an intuitive,
3COM OFFICECONNECT MANAGED FAST ETHERNET POE SWITCH

KEY BENEFITS (continued)
menu-driven process for even novice users to quickly
and confidently configure the switch during initial
setup and manage it during normal operation.
Graphical switch and port views provide a clear
understanding of switch status and configuration.
In addition, the web interface features individual
port-traffic monitoring (port mirroring) and MAC
address port mapping tables. A cable diagnostic tool
lets users troubleshoot basic connectivity problems
via the web management interface further
simplifying network installation.
The OfficeConnect Managed Fast Ethernet PoE Switch
is also supported by 3Com Network Supervisor (3NS)
and 3Com Network Director (3ND) management
software. 3NS and 3ND can be used to map the
network topology, indicating what devices are
connected, and on what ports. Switch management
and software upgrades can be easily done. Other
SNMP-based management tools may also be used.
The switch family also supports a full Command Line
Interface (CLI) that is accessed via the front panel
console port and Telnet/SSH support for remote
management via CLI interface. Using the CLI, major
switch management options can be quickly configured.
FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS
FEATURE
DESCRIPTION
VLANs
Segment the network by grouping users based on their data or traffic exchange
requirements. This ensures optimal use of available bandwidth as traffic flow is directed
according to the needs of the business.
Advanced QoS and traffic shaping
Traffic prioritization, using IEEE 802.1p Quality of Service (QoS) and Type of Service
(TOS) with Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP), and ingress/egress rate shaping
help ensure that critical time-sensitive traffic like voice gets the priority needed for
quality communications.
Link aggregation (trunking)
Group together any number of ports automatically using Link Aggregation Control
Protocol (LACP), or manually, to form an ultra-high-bandwidth connection to the
network backbone; help prevent traffic bottlenecks.
Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol support
Improves network compatibility, scalability and availability.
IGMP snooping
Multicast filtering optimizes network performance, instead of flooding traffic to all ports.
Unique voice features
Automatic assignment of voice traffic to separate VLANs (“auto-voice VLAN”), advanced
voice QoS, traffic shaping, multicast filtering and PoE support delivers the support
necessary for quality voice communications.
Flexible Gigabit uplink
Daisychain multiple units together via the built-in copper Gigabit uplink port or connect
to a network backbone via SFP-based fiber modules.
PoE support
Provides power for IP phones, wireless LAN access points, and other IEEE 802.3afcompliant devices over the same cable used for data; lowers total cost of ownership
since there is no need to run additional electrical wiring.
Fanless design
Silent operation whether used in a rack or desktop situation.
Security
IEEE 802.1X network access control
Provides standards-based security combined with local authentication.
Advanced Access Control Lists (ACLs)
MAC- and IP-based ACLs enable network traffic filtering and enhance network control.
Traffic monitoring (port mirroring)
Administrators can examine suspect data streams received on any port by mirroring the
data stream to a monitoring port.
Configuration and management
Enhanced browser-based interface
Graphical user interface allows even the most novice users to configure the switch during
initial setup and monitor it during normal operation.
SNMP support
Switch can be managed with 3Com Network Supervisor, Network Director and other
SNMP-compatible tools.
PoE configuration
PoE power can be enabled or disabled per unit and per port; power can also be limited
per port.
Cable diagnostics
Remotely detect copper cable issues using a browser-based tool.
