• LANCOM XS-5116QF


Managed 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.

Scenario of LANCOM network topologies with aggregation and access switches

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).

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.


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.

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).


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.

Software defined device management in the LANCOM Management Cloud WEBconfig

SD-LAN – easy management of complex networking scenarios

With the LANCOM Management Cloud, the LANCOM XS-5116QF offers quick and easy network integration as well as automatic provision of the configuration. This makes it easy to manage even complex networking scenarios. With SD-LAN, holistic network orchestration replaces the configuration of individual devices and allows the automatic assignment of VLANs to the required switch ports. Configurations are customized to the multi-site network architecture and, with a click of a mouse, they are rolled-out or updated simultaneously to every site.

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.

LANCOM - IT security made in Germany

Security "Made in Germany"

As a holder of the "IT Security made in Germany" trust mark, LANCOM is committed to keeping its products free of secret backdoors. This makes the LANCOM switches ideal for operation in sensitive environments and always in accordance with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Secure Terminal Access

This function provides access to the command line of the LANCOM switch ("CLI tunneling") directly from the LANCOM Management Cloud—encrypted and without leaving the cloud interface. Be it trace or ping commands for rapid troubleshooting, access to low-level configuration parameters and detailed statistics in the LCOS SX operating system, or secure remote access to third-party devices in the local network via the integrated SSH client—Secure Terminal Access offers expert functions and extensive diagnostic and troubleshooting commands on your devices.

Software Lifecycle Management with update guarantee

LANCOM regularly offers free updates for maximum investment protection. Major releases with new features, release updates with minor improvements and bug fixes are available not only for the entire product life cycle, but also for a period of two years after the product’s discontinuation. With a valid warranty, critical security fixes and associated supportare guaranteed for up to five years after the end-of-sales date.
