Priority for Converged and


Business-Critical Traffic

Network-Level Availability

XRN (eXpandable Resilient Networking)


technology is a 3Com innovation that enables
multiple interconnected and stackable Layer 3
switches to behave as a single management
entity.
Automated stack and fabric setup delivers
high resiliency and continuous availability
without adding to network complexity.
Once configured, all switches actively share
network loads and routing intelligence and
support ultra-fast failover recovery for lost
or disconnected switches.
Multilayered Security

These advanced enterprise switches integrate


distributed security enforcement and
centralized network management features.
Access Control Lists (ACLs) help safeguard
access to key network resources from
unauthorized access and data corruption.
User-based authentication and DES 56-bit
encryption help secure Layer 3 protocols and
management controls, such as SSH and SNMP.
IEEE 802.1X RADIUS Network Login and
RADIUS Authenticated Device Access (RADA)
enforce access control at the networks edge.

Future-Proof Investment

Standards-based switchingincluding
IPv6 traffic filtering and classification
cabling support, and management features
provide a networking solution that
maximizes existing IT investment and
supports emerging standards.
Powerful, Unified Management

Switches are powered by the 3Com Operating


System, the same proven software shared
across our premium enterprise products
including the 3Com Switch 8800 and 7700
modular families. This consolidates
administrative control over the entire
switching infrastructure when using 3Com
management application software such as
3Com Enterprise Management Suite and
3Com Network Director.

3COM SWITCH 5500 10/100 FAMILY DATA SHEET


The new 3Com Switch 5500 family of
stackable switches offer the ideal networkedge solution for delivering premium levels
of performance, security, and reliability.
Their robust features enable the enterprise
network to become more future-proof,
resilient, standards-based, secure, and
converged than ever before.

Service and Support


3Com products are backed by 3Com
Global Services and authorized
partners with demonstrated
expertise in network assessment,
implementation and maintenance.
These services fill resource gaps and
help manage enterprise support
requirements.

These workgroup switches run on the 3Com


Operating System, an operating system that
is shared across our premium enterprise
offeringsincluding the 3Com Switch 8800
and 7700, and 3Com enterprise routers. This
allows the management of an entire distributed
switching and routing infrastructure from a
single CLI or SNMP management platform
such as 3Com Enterprise Management Suite
or 3Com Network Director. The end result is
a more unified network environment and
improved edge-to-core visibility and control.
The 3Com Switch 5500 family includes
next-generation Layer 2/3/4, Fast Ethernet
switches that are ideal for the most demanding
wiring-closet applications. They offer flexible
and scalable connectivity for a heterogeneous
mix of data, voice, video, and other businesscritical services and are particularly suited
for building highly available and resilient
architectures. These Switch 5500 models
come with 24 or 48 10/100 ports plus four
active SFP-based Gigabit ports.
Standard-image (SI) and enhanced-image (EI)
software models provide for the best fit for
performance and budget requirements. The
3Com Switch 5500-SI supports robust, resilient
stacking up to eight units high. The stack is
connected via the built-in SFP-based Gigabit
ports that provide plug-and-play hardware
detection and automated configuration.

3Com Switch 5500-EI enhanced models


support our innovative 3Com XRN stacking
technology, which allows the creation of
an eight-unit stack that offers even better
availability and resiliency over traditional
aggregated-trunk configurations. The entire
stack can be managed as a single-IP management entity, even if individual units are
geographically distributed up to 70 km
(43.5 mi) apart. All switch units are active,
eliminating the wasted bandwidth and cost
of a passive standby unit. There is no
master/slave relationship among the units.
Instead, all switch units share routing table
information dynamically. Should a connection
fail or unit become disconnected, within
seconds, traffic loads are automatically
redistributed among the remaining active
systems.
Also available as an EI model in the Switch
5500 family is a 100BASE-FX switch ideally
suited to applications where security is of
particular concern or where long cable runs
are required. Fiber optic cabling is almost
impossible on which to eavesdrop and thus
is ideal for high security environments.
The Switch 5500-EI FX 28-Port uses
100BASE-X SFP pluggable transceivers for
its 24 connections at 100Mbps, providing
the flexibility of running any mix of
100BASE-FX multimode fiber (up to 2 km
or 1.2-mi) or 100BASE-LX10 single-mode
fiber (up to 10 km or 6.2 mi). The Switch
5500 FX supports all the advanced 5500-EI
family features such as Layer 2/3/4 switching
and XRN stacking.
Advanced QoS features, including applicationaware traffic controls and filtering, optimize
network bandwidth for lag-sensitive voice
and video transmissions. Centrally controlled
security features enable the enforcement
of data security across the network,
protecting users and devices from unauthorized
access and corruption. Advanced Layer 3
routing, such as OSPF, PIM-SM and PIM-DM
(EI-models only), and RIP v1/v2, help optimize
network performance and system response.
3Com Switch 5500 products are the first
stackable workgroup switches to support
multiple power schemes right out of the
boxAC, AC and DC, or DC operation.
Specific EI models also support IEEE 802.3af
Power over Ethernet, enabling power to be
pushed to the edge of the network without
having to install additional electrical wiring
or upgrade existing power supplies.

Redundant Power System


3Com has tested and qualified a Redundant Power System (RPS) solution designed for the 3Com Switch 5500 by Eaton Powerware Corporation,
a leading global provider of power quality and management solutions.
The Powerware DC RPS systems come in either 3RU or 6RU form-factors, delivering up to 9,000W of DC power to a stack of Switch 5500 units.

System, the same proven software shared
across our premium enterprise products
including the 3Com Switch 8800 and 7700
modular families. This consolidates
administrative control over the entire
switching infrastructure when using 3Com
management application software such as
3Com Enterprise Management Suite and
3Com Network Director.

3COM SWITCH 5500G 10/100/1000 FAMILY DATA SHEET


The new 3Com Switch 5500 family of
stackable switches offer the ideal networkedge solution for delivering premium levels
of performance, security, and reliability.
Their comprehensive standards-based
features help create a future-proof
Enterprise network that provides more
resiliency, security, and convergence.

Service and Support


3Com products are backed by 3Com
Global Services and authorized
partners with demonstrated
expertise in network assessment,
implementation and maintenance.
These services fill resource gaps and
help manage enterprise support
requirements.

These workgroup switches run on the 3Com


Operating System, an operating system that
is shared across our premium enterprise
offeringsincluding the 3Com Switch 8800
and 7700, and 3Com enterprise routers. This
allows the management of an entire distributed
switching and routing infrastructure from a
single CLI or SNMP management platform
such as 3Com Enterprise Management Suite
or 3Com Network Director. The end result is
a more unified network environment and
improved edge-to-core visibility and control.
The 3Com Switch 5500 family includes
next-generation Layer 2/3/4, Gigabit Ethernet
switches that are ideal for the most demanding
wiring-closet applications. They offer flexible
and scalable connectivity for a heterogeneous
mix of data, voice, video, and other businesscritical services and are particularly suited
for building highly available and resilient
architectures. Four different Switch 5500G
models come with 24 or 48 10/100/1000
ports, four ports of which are dual-purposed
with four SFP-based Gigabit ports. A fifth,
SFP-based, model offers 24 SFP-based Gigabit
ports, four of which are dual-purposed with
four 10/100/1000 ports.

3Com Switch 5500G-EI models support our


innovative 3Com XRN stacking technology,
which allows the creation of an eight-unit
stack that offers even better availability and
resiliency over traditional aggregated-trunk
configurations. The entire stack can be
managed as a single-IP management entity,
with 96 Gbps of full-duplex stacking stacking
bandwidth. All switch units are active,
eliminating the wasted bandwidth and cost
of a passive standby unit. There is no
master/slave relationship among the units.
Instead, all switch units share routing table
information dynamically. Should a connection
fail or unit become disconnected, within
seconds, traffic loads are automatically
redistributed among the remaining active
systems.
Advanced QoS features, including applicationaware traffic controls and filtering, optimize
network bandwidth for latency-sensitive voice
and video transmissions. Centrally controlled
security features enable the enforcement of
data security across the network, protecting
users and devices from unauthorized access
and corruption. Advanced Layer 3 routing,
such as OSPF, PIM-SM and PIM-DM, and RIP
v1/v2, help optimize network performance
and system response.
3Com Switch 5500 products are the first
stackable workgroup switches to support
multiple power schemes right out of the
boxAC, AC and DC, or DC operation.
Specific EI models also support IEEE 802.3af
Power over Ethernet, enabling power to be
pushed to the edge of the network for support
of IP telephones, wireless access points, and
other PoE devices.
Field-replaceable power supplies in Switch
5500G models allow for easy upgrade of nonPoE models to power provisioning capabilities
of PoE models.

Redundant Power System


3Com has tested and qualified a Redundant Power System (RPS) solution designed for the 3Com Switch 5500 by Eaton Powerware Corporation,
a leading global provider of power quality and management solutions.
The Powerware DC RPS systems come in either 3RU or 6RU form-factors, delivering up to 9,000 W of DC power to a stack of Switch 5500 units.
The 3RU unit can house up to three hot-swappable rectifiers supplying up to 4,500 W of power, and supports up to eight separately-fused DC
outputs, while the 6RU unit can house up to six hot-swappable rectifiers provisioning a total of 9,000 W.
The RPS supports SNMP management, including MIB II, which is easily accessible through the built-in RJ-45 or serial port. It is fully compatible
with the IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet standard, providing supplemental power for the 3Com Switch 5500G-EI PWR. With this RPS, all 384
10/100/1000 ports on a stack of eight Switch 5500G-EI PWR 48-Port units can receive the industry standard 15.4 W of power per port, with N+1
power redundancy.
The RPS ships with the power input fully configured and can be connected to a UPS with battery backup. For more details, please refer to
