LANCOM GS-4554XUP

Stackable full layer 3 multi-Gigabit access switch with PoE++

This fully managed access switch with the latest IEEE 802.3bt Power over Ethernet standard and full layer 3 functions is the ideal solution for demanding infrastructures in enterprise environments. With its extensive industry-standard port equipment, it offers enormous performance even at high workloads and enables uplinking and stacking. Its 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports support 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet and thus form the necessary high-performance basis, for example, for operating Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E access points and other network components with high performance requirements like e.g. PoE++ powered lighting concepts or displays. In addition, professional redundancy functions and LANCOM fail-safe stacking guarantee fail-safe operation with the best protection covered by the Limited Lifetime Warranty (LLW). Orchestrated via the LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC), its configuration is automated.

Highlights

High power output on 54 ports

The LANCOM GS-4554XUP is equipped with 24x 2.5 multi-Gigabit PoE+ Ethernet ports, 24x 2.5 multi-Gigabit PoE++ Ethernet ports, as well as 4 SFP+ and 2 QSFP+ ports supporting transmission rates of 10 and 40 Gbps respectively. In addition, with a data throughput of 480 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 base for Wi-Fi 6E – PoE included

Thanks to 48 high-performance 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the LANCOM GS-4554XUP is the ideal the ideal LAN-side basis for integrating the new wireless LAN standard Wi-Fi 6E into modern infrastructures. The increased data rates when using Wi-Fi 6E require 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet, as the required performance demands exceed those of a simple Gigabit Ethernet port. This switch in combination with the PoE power, this switch allows the operation of up to 24 Wi-Fi 6E access points on the PoE++ ports, as well as other network components with high performance requirements – without additional electrical installation.

Central power supply without additional electrical installation

As a powerful PoE switch, the LANCOM GS-4554XUP supplies connected PoE end devices without additional power supplies or power cabling. It supports the Power over Ethernet standards IEEE 802.3af (PoE), IEEE 802.3at (PoE+) and IEEE 802.3bt PD-Type 4 (PoE++) with up to 90 watts per port. Thanks to high power reserves, a PoE budget of 1,440 watts is available when using both power supplies in power mode, making it ideal for efficiently powering PoE end devices with high energy requirements.

Advantages

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+ uplink ports and the rear QSFP+ uplink ports, enabling a mixed stack with the LANCOM XS-5110F and XS-5116QF aggregation switches.

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

Like all LANCOM products, this switch also features hybrid management. Depending on your personal preference, the following management options are available: LANtools, web-based GUI, generic CLI, or LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC). In addition, you benefit from the freedom to switch between management options at any time. Thus, a later switch to a cloud-operated network is easily possible (requires a valid LMC license). Meanwhile, the generic CLI ensures that this switch can be easily integrated into existing LAN networks.

With the LANCOM Management Cloud, the LANCOM GS-4554XUP 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-4554XUP 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.
