LANCOM GS-4554X

Stackable full layer 3 multi-Gigabit access switch

In enterprise networks with a high number of components, this fully managed multi-Gigabit access switch is a reliable solution thanks to its full layer 3 functions with high-performance uplinking and stacking. At the same time, the extensive port equipment according to industry standards offers enormous performance even at high workloads. Pro­fessional redundancy functions and LANCOM fail-safe stacking ensure fail-safe operation. In addition, this switch is covered by the LANCOM Limited Lifetime Warranty (LLW). Its configuration is automated via the LANCOM Management Cloud.

Advantages

High performance on 54 ports

The LANCOM GS-4554X is equipped with 12x 2.5 multi-Gigabit Ethernet ports, 36x Gigabit Ethernet ports, as well as 4 SFP+ and 2 QSFP+ FleX ports supporting transmission rates of 10 and 40 Gbps respectively. In addition, with a data throughput of 372 Gbps on the backplane, it offers wire­speed performance even at high workloads. The multi-Gigabit access switch thus forms the powerful basis for modern network infrastructures in all industries and areas of application.

A high-performance basis for Wi-Fi 6

Thanks to 12 high-performance 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the LANCOM GS-4554X is the ideal LAN-side basis for integrating the new wireless LAN standard Wi-Fi 6 into modern infrastructures. The increased data rates when using Wi-Fi 6 require 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet, as the required perfor­mance demands exceed those of a simple Gigabit Ethernet port. This switch thus enables the operation of up to 12 Wi-Fi 6 access points or other network components with high performance requirements.

LANCOM fail-safe stacking

LANCOM fail-safe stacking allows up to 8 physical switches to be combined into one logical unit for convenient maintenance and management – at a single site or even distributed across different sites. Via the nonstop forwarding function, the stack manager cyclically supplies its standby with current information such as the MAC table and its own status information. In the event of a failure, the standby manager is able to take over with­out noticeable network interruption via the hitless failover function. Subsequent expansion of the network is also possible, as the new switch re­ceives its configuration automatically from the stack manager and is ready for use within seconds. The stacking function can also be activated on both the front SFP+ FleX ports and the rear QSFP+ FleX ports, enabling a mixed stack with the LANCOM XS-5110F and XS-5116QF aggregation switches.

Full control over your investment

Fully equipped ex works, ready for immediate use, everything from a single source: In accordance with the principle of "Total Cost of Ownership" (TCO), the LANCOM GS-4554X gives you planning security from the very beginning and at all times with regard to the acquisition costs for your network expansion. The full expansion with all necessary ports in the industry standard makes time-consuming and costly retrofitting of pro­prietary port modules a thing of the past. Furthermore, our accessories portfolio provides you with the necessary SFP modules and direct attach cables directly from us in tested LANCOM quality. In addition to the guarantee of maximum operational reliability through extensive load and long-term tests of the modules, you also avoid long delivery times.

Full layer 3 routing for high network efficiency

The LANCOM GS-4554X is full layer 3 capable with policy-based dynamic routing via OSPF, providing dynamic network routes through one or more network segments. This provides tremendous increase in network efficiency for example in meshed networks with multiple aggregation switches at different locations.

Hardware redundancy

The LANCOM GS-4554X with a "hot-swappable" PSU (power supply unit) allows the power supply unit to be replaced quickly and without inter­ruption in the event of a breakdown. A separate plug-in slot realizes the addition of a second PSU. With the integration of two redundant power supply units, for example, highly fail-safe scenarios can be realized. In addition, the redundant (N+1) fan concept also ensures fail-safe switch operation in case one of the two fans fails.

Front-to-back ventilation design

The LANCOM GS-4554X protects your investment with an innovative front-to-back ventilation design. This enables optimal cooling even in 19" racks and maximizes the lifetime of the device.

Cloud-managed LAN and switch stacking

With the LANCOM Management Cloud, the LANCOM GS-4554X offers fast and easy network integration as well as automatic configuration assignment. Cloud-managed LAN replaces individual device configuration with holistic network orchestration and enables automatic VLAN assignment to the desired switch ports. Configurations can be rolled out or updated simultaneously at the click of a mouse and even more complex networking scenarios easy to administer. When using the LANCOM GS-4554X in a stack, Cloud-managed switch stacking also ensures convenient management and monitoring of the entire stack. The cloud independently detects which and how many switches belong to the stack. Learn more about professional network connectivity and configuration in the  Design guide switch stacking.

Secure remote management

Secure communication protocols such as SSH, SSL and SNMPv3 mean that the LANCOM GS-4554X is ideal for professional remote network management. The switch also supports the TACACS+ protocol for authentication, authorization and accounting. This solution is optimized for maximum security for multi-site network management and monitoring.

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.
