Stackable 10 Gigabit Intelligent Switches
The Allied Telesis x550 Series of stackable 10 Gigabit Layer 3 switches have capacity and resiliency coupled with easy management, meeting the needs of even the most demanding network core and distribution applications.
Allied Telesis x550 switches are high performing and feature-rich, making them the ideal choice for today's networks.
Three models provide 16 x 1G/10G copper, 16 x 1G/10G SFP+ slots, or 8 x 1G/2.5G/5G/10G copper and 8 x 1G/10G SFP+ slots, all with two 40G uplinks. With the power of Allied Telesis Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack™), the x550 Series is ideal for the network core, and demanding distribution applications.
Vista ManagerTM EX bundled with Allied Telesis Autonomous Management FrameworkTM (AMF) meets the increasing management requirements of modern networks. While AMF allows an entire network to be securely and easily managed as a single virtual device, Vista Manager EX provides an intuitive and powerful graphical tool for monitoring and managing AMF wired and Autonomous Wave Control (AWC) wireless devices.
Device and network management
The Device GUI on the x550 Series enables graphical monitoring of key switch features to support easy management.
Integrated into the Device GUI, Vista ManagerTM mini supports visibility and management of AMF wired and AWC wireless network devices, making it ideal as a one-stop solution for small to medium-sized networks.
AWC is an intelligent, easy to use Wireless LAN controller that automatically maintains optimal wireless coverage. Vista Manager mini includes AWC floor and heat maps showing wireless coverage. It also supports AWC Channel Blanket hybrid operation, providing maximum performance and seamless roaming, as well as AWC Smart Connect for simplified deployment, and a resilient Wi-Fi network solution using wireless uplink connectivity.
Converging network services means increasing demand for highly available networks with minimal downtime. VCStack, in conjunction with link aggregation, provides a network with no single point of failure, and provides access application resiliency.
Ethernet Protection Switched Ring (EPSRing™), and the standards-based G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection, ensure distributed networks have high-speed access to online resources and applications.
The spread of high-speed wireless (802.11ac or "Wave2") is problematic for network infrastructure. Unless the infrastructure is upgraded to cope with increased speeds, it creates a bottleneck which negatively impacts the effectiveness of the wireless network. But increasing speeds from 1 Gigabit has traditionally meant moving to 10 Gigabit. This requires new cabling, which is expensive and time consuming to install.
