Product photo LANCOM Aggregation Switch XS-5116QF

10G fiber aggregation switch for mid-sized distributed networks

This 10G aggregation switch offers future-proof fiber-optics performance and acts as a superordinated instance in distributed networks and provides high-performance 14 SFP+ ports for aggregating access switches and further 2 QSFP+ ports. Professional redundancy functionalities and two hot-swappable power supplies guarantee fail-safe operations. Thanks to the holistic LANCOM network management the device can be configured dynamically and automatically via the LANCOM Management Cloud or via cloud-enabled web GUI, and even via cloud-enabled CLI.

Maximum performance on all ports

With its fiber-optics and multi-Gigabit Ethernet (mGbE) ports, the LANCOM XS-5116QF offers future-proof port performance for resilient networks that meet the increasing demands occuring from increasingly powerful clients, a growing number of IoT devices, and cloud applications. 14 SFP+ ports (10G), 2 of which can be used as mGbE combo ports, serve as a high-performance distribution instance for establishing switch structures. A powerful uplink featuring 2x QSFP+ ports (40G), which can alternatively be used for stacking, makes the LANCOM XS-5116QF the ideal solution for mid-sized distributed networks with high performance requirements.

Flexibility and investment protection thanks to stacking technology

Stacking makes child’s play of expanding your network, as several physical switches combine into a single logical unit for convenient maintenance and management. When you expand your network, the new switch automatically receives a configuration from the stack master and is ready to use within seconds. Furthermore, device or network redundancies can be implemented with stacking for maximum reliability. With the LANCOM XS-5116QF, stack processing with a separate backplane CPU remains independent of network load thanks to the QSFP+ uplink ports. In addition, LANCOM also offers the option of mixed stacks with the GS-45xx series. The following matrix shows the different combinations.

Full layer 3 functionality

The LANCOM XS-5116QF is capable of performing layer 3 tasks such as DHCP server functionality, i.e. IP address management, or the predefinition of network routes across one or more network segments. Thanks to dynamic routing, the switch can also react quickly to network changes. The optimal route for data traffic within the network is thus constantly redefined by the LANCOM XS-5116QF based on the load level. This results in a load reduction on the router, so that these capacities are then additionally available for handling external data traffic and increase the efficiency of the entire network.

Secure remote management

Secure communication protocols such as SSH, SSL and SNMPv3 mean that the LANCOM XS-5116QF is ideal for the professional management of remote networks. The switch also supports the TACACS+ protocol for authentication, authorization and accounting. This optimized solution promises maximum security for multi-site network management and monitoring.

Configurable access control

The LANCOM XS-5116QF stops rogue clients from gaining unauthorized access to the network. This is ensured by secured access control on all ports as per IEEE 802.1X (port-based, single, multi, and MAC-based) or by ACLs (access control lists).

Cloud-managed LAN and switch stacking

With the LANCOM Management Cloud, the XS-5116QF offers quick and easy network integration as well as automatic provision of the configuration across locations with the a click of a mouse. Cloud-managed LAN replaces the configuration of individual devices and enables automatic assignment of VLANs
to switch ports. Cloud-managed switch stacking also enables convenient management and monitoring of the entire stack. Learn more in the  Design guide switch stacking.

Flexible network topologies

The LANCOM XS-5116QF is an ideal aggregation instance for the networking of access switches. Depending on the size of the installation, it integrates into the network topology either at the top level facing the WAN (2-tier design) or at the second level between a core switch and the access switches (3-tier design).

High operational security

The LANCOM XS-5116QF features two integrated hot-swappable PSUs (power supply units). This allows a quick and uninterrupted replacement of defective power supply units. Front-to-back airflow design improves cooling in 19-inch racks and extends the product lifetime. Stacking is a major contribution to highly resilient scenarios.

LANCOM Limited Lifetime Warranty (LLW)

This enterprise switch is reliably covered ex factory by the LANCOM Limited Lifetime Warranty. Regardless of the switch's operating time, the warranty is valid until the End of Life status of the device (max. 10 years). Learn more in the Infopaper LANCOM Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Perfect complement: Ensure minimal downtime in the event of a hardware defect with next-business-day delivery of a replacement device.
We recommend the LANCOM Next Business Day Replacement Option as well as the LANCOM Service Pack 24/7, or the LANCOM Service Pack 10/5.
