Dell PowerConnect 5448 and 5424 Gigabit Ethernet1 switches are designed to deliver
advanced security and enterprise management capabilities — and they are the world’s first
iSCSI-optimised switches.
ENTERPRISE-CLASS PERFORMANCE AND CAPABILITY
The PowerConnect 5400 series switches offer secure, fixed-port Gigabit Ethernet1 switching solutions which deliver full wire-speed
switching performance. With 24 or 48 built-in copper Gigabit Ethernet1 ports in a 1U form factor, the PowerConnect 5400 series has a
total switching capacity of up to 96 Gbps. The switches also offer flexibility with their four SFP transceiver slots which can be used in
lieu of up to four copper ports to support fiber media.
WORLD’S FIRST ISCSI-OPTIMIsED SWITCH
iSCSI is a communication protocol used for sending data between servers and storage devices. The PowerConnect 5400 series is the
world’s first switch portfolio which automatically optimises for iSCSI traffic. The switches detect whether traffic flows are iSCSI-based
and if so assign that traffic flow a high-level of Quality of Service. This helps ensure that iSCSI storage traffic is prioritised in the event
of resource contention. The 5400-series also automatically provides information about all active iSCSI sessions to allow for easier
management and optimisation.
ROBUST SECURITY
Advanced security features of the PowerConnect 5400 series switches help protect the network from accidental or malicious interference.
Edge authentication is supported through the industry-standard IEEE 802.1x protocol which allows network access through RADIUSdefined usernames and passwords. The PowerConnect 5400 series provides password management for increased network security and
improved password control by encrypting management traffic through SSL or SSH and secures SNMP access by filtering hosts based
upon IP address. MAC-based port security is designed to prevent unauthorised MAC addresses from accessing the network. This feature
can send a trap to alert select administrators whenever an unknown MAC address attempts to access the network, and can shut down
the port if desired. RADIUS and TACACS+ support enables centralised, remote authentication of administrative access to the switch.
Management access filtering provides a mechanism to limit network hosts that have management access to the switches.
EASY, POWERFUL ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT
The PowerConnect 5400 series switches feature many enterprise management capabilities to help network administrators optimise
network traffic. These include multi-layer QoS that can support VoIP-capable infrastructures, multicast support to help reduce unnecessary
multicast network traffic, link aggregation for expanded network bandwidth, and dynamic VLAN configuration. The PowerConnect 5400
series switches can be managed via an industry-standard command line interface (CLI), embedded Web server, third party SNMP-based
management console applications, Telnet, or serial connections.
ADVANCED SWITCHING FEATURES
The PowerConnect 5400 series switches feature enhanced VLAN support such as Voice VLANs and Guest VLANs. LLDP (Link Layer
Discovery Protocol) allows for troubleshooting and enhanced network management over multi-vendor environments and DHCP Snooping
further expands network security. LLDP Media Endpoint Discovery (LLDP-MED) increases network flexibility by allowing different IP
systems to co-exist on a single network LLDP. LLDP provides detailed network topology information, emergency call service via IP Phone
location information, and troubleshooting information.
Dell brings absolute execution to IT Services.
The planning, implementation and maintenance
of your IT infrastructure deserves nothing
less. Variability in execution can compromise
user productivity, IT resources and ultimately,
your reputation. By leveraging our heritage
of process-driven excellence, Dell Services
can deliver a smarter way. We don’t claim to
do everything. We focus on IT infrastructure
services. And we take a customer-led approach,
grounded in the philosophy that you know your
business better than anyone.
That’s why Dell does not try to take key business
decisions out of your hands, or lock you into
more than you need. Instead, we deliver what
customers today most need — flexibility and
repeatable quality. That’s absolute execution.
That’s Dell.
