x550 Series - 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.

x550 Series

Overview

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.

Network automation

Vista ManagerTM EX bundled with Allied Telesis Autonomous Management Framework™ (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 Manager™ 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.

Resiliency

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.

High-speed wireless

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.

The x550-18XSPQm solves these issues because it provides support for 2.5 and 5 Gigabit. At this speed, the wireless network runs at full capacity, and there is no need to replace existing Cat5E and Cat6 cables.

Secure

The x550 Series offers powerful control over network traffic types, secure management options, loop guard to protect against cabling mistakes, and tri-authentication for comprehensive access control.

Future-proof

The x550 Series ensures a future-proof network, with superior flexibility coupled with the ability to stack multiple units. All x550 Series models feature 40 Gigabit uplinks ports, and support OpenFlow and a comprehensive IPv6 feature set, to ensure they are ready for SDN and future network traffic demands.

Environmentally friendly

The x550 Series supports Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), automatically reducing the power consumed by the switch whenever there is no traffic on a port.

 

Vista Manager mini

Integrated into the Device GUI, Vista Manager mini provides full network visibility of AMF wired and AWC wireless devices. Manage and simplify wireless deployment with AWC-Smart Connect, and support optimal wireless performance from AWC hybrid operation with maximum throughout and a seamless Wi-Fi user experience.

Allied Telesis Autonomous Management Framework™ (AMF)

AMF is a sophisticated suite of management tools that provide a simplified approach to network management. Common tasks are automated or made so simple that the everyday running of a network can be achieved without the need for highly-trained, and expensive, network engineers. Powerful features like centralized management, auto-backup, auto-upgrade, auto-provisioning and auto-recovery enable plug-and-play networking and zero-touch management.
Any x550 Series switch can operate as the AMF network master, storing firmware and configuration backups for other network nodes. The AMF master enables auto-provisioning and auto-upgrade by providing appropriate files to new network members. New network devices can be pre-provisioned making installation easy because no on-site configuration is required.
AMF Guestnode allows Allied Telesis wireless access points and further switching products, as well as third party devices such as IP phones and security cameras, to be part of an AMF network.

AWC Wireless Management

Optimize wireless network performance with the Autonomous Wave Controller (AWC), built-in to the x550 Series. AWC analyzes wireless traffic patterns and automatically reconfigures access points to meet demand.
Wireless network operation in multi-channel, single-channel (Channel Blanket), and hybrid (multi-channel and Channel Blanket) modes, supports maximum data throughput and seamless roaming for the most flexible wireless solution available.
AWC-Smart Connect (AWC-SC) enables plug-and play wireless network growth, as new APs only need a power connection, and will then automatically create resilient wireless uplink connections to other APs.

Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack™)

Create a VCStack of up to four units with 160 Gbps of stacking bandwidth to each unit. Stacking links are connected in a ring so each device has dual connections to further improve resiliency. VCStack provides a highly available system where network resources are spread out across stacked units, reducing the impact if one of the units fails. Aggregating switch ports on different units across the stack provides excellent network resiliency.

Long-Distance Stacking (VCStack-LD)

Long-distance stacking allows a VCStack to be created over longer distances, perfect for a distributed network environment.

Flexible Deployment

The compact x550-18XTQ and x550-18XSQ enable easy deployment, and 2 units can be installed side-by-side in 1RU, saving valuable rack space. VCStack enables a single 32-port 1RU virtual unit with built in resilience.

Ethernet Protection Switched Ring (EPSRing™)

EPSRing and 10 Gigabit Ethernet allow several x550 switches to form high-speed protected rings capable of recovery within as little as 50ms. This feature is perfect for high performance and high availability in enterprise networks.

G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection

G.8032 provides standards-based high-speed ring protection, that can be deployed stand-alone, or interoperate with Allied Telesis EPSR.
Ethernet Connectivity Fault Monitoring (CFM) proactively monitors links and VLANs, and provides alerts when a fault is detected.

Loop Protection

Thrash limiting, also known as rapid MAC movement, detects and resolves network loops. It is highly user-configurable - from the rate of looping traffic to the type of action the switch should take when it detects a loop.
With thrash limiting, the switch only detects a loop when a storm has occurred, which can potentially cause disruption to the network. To avoid this, loop detection works in conjunction with thrash limiting to send special Loop Detection Frame (LDF) packets that the switch listens for. If a port receives an LDF packet, you can choose to disable the port, disable the link, or send an SNMP trap. This feature can help to detect loops before a network storm occurs, avoiding the risk and inconvenience of traffic disruption.

Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+)

With PoE, a separate power connection to media endpoints such as IP phones and wireless access points is not necessary. PoE+ reduces costs and provides even greater flexibility, providing the capability to connect devices requiring more power (up to 30 Watts) such as pan, tilt and zoom security cameras.

Continuous PoE

Continuous PoE allows the switch to be restarted without affecting the supply of power to connected devices. Smart lighting, security cameras, and other PoE devices will continue to operate during a software upgrade on the switch.

Voice VLAN

Voice VLAN automatically separates voice and data traffic into two different VLANs. This automatic separation places delay-sensitive traffic into a voice- dedicated VLAN, which simplifies QoS configurations.

Open Shortest Path First (OSPFv3)

OSPF is a scalable and adaptive routing protocol for IP networks. The addition of OSPFv3 adds support for IPv6 and further strengthens the Allied Telesis focus on next generation networking.

sFlow

sFlow is an industry-standard technology for monitoring high-speed switched networks. It provides complete visibility into network use, enabling performance optimization, usage accounting/billing, and defense against security threats. Sampled packets sent to a collector ensure it always has a real-time view of network traffic.

VLAN Mirroring (RSPAN)

VLAN mirroring allows traffic from a port on a remote switch to be analysed locally. Traffic being transmitted or received on the port is duplicated and sent across the network on a special VLAN.

Active Fiber Monitoring

Active Fiber Monitoring prevents eavesdropping on fiber communications by monitoring received optical power. If an intrusion is detected, the link can be automatically shut down, or an operator alert can be sent. Active Fiber Monitoring is supported on fiber data and fiber stacking links.

Tri-authentication

Authentication options on the x550 Series also include alternatives to IEEE 802.1x port-based authentication, such as web authentication, to enable guest access and MAC authentication for endpoints that do not have an IEEE 802.1x supplicant. All three authentication methods-IEEE 802.1x, MAC-based and Web-based-can be enabled simultaneously on the same port for tri-authentication.

TACACS+ Command Authorization

Centralize control of which commands may be issued by a specific user of an AlliedWare Plus device. TACACS+ command authorization complements authentication and accounting services for a complete AAA solution.

Premium Software License

By default, the x550 Series offers a comprehensive Layer 2 and basic Layer 3 feature set that includes static routing and IPv6 management features. The feature set can easily be elevated to full Layer 3 by applying the premium software license. This adds dynamic routing protocols and Layer 3 multicasting capabilities.

VLAN ACLs

Simplify access and traffic control across entire segments of the network. Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be applied to a Virtual LAN (VLAN) as well as a specific port.

Software Defined Networking (SDN)

OpenFlow is a key technology that enables the use of SDN to build smart applications that unlock value and reduce cost.

Precision Time Protocol (PTP)

PTP (IEEE 1588v2) sychronizes clocks throughout the network with micro-second accuracy, supporting industrial automation and control systems.

Multi-speed Ports

Copper ports on the x550-18XSPQm support 2.5 and 5 Gigabit connectivity to enable high-speed wireless, and the use of legacy Cat5E/6 cabling.

 

NETWORK DISTRIBUTION

Allied Telesis x550 Series switches are ideal for distribution solutions, where resiliency and flexibility are required. In the above diagram, distribution switches utilize long-distance Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack-LD) to create a single virtual unit out of multiple devices. By using fiber stacking connectivity, units can be kilometers apart-perfect for a distributed environment.

When combined with link aggregation, VCStack provides a solution with no single point of failure, and which fully utilizes all available network bandwidth.

x550 switches provide a resilient and reliable distribution solution to support all networks with business-critical online resources and applications.

x550 Resilient distribution switching

 

RESILIENT NETWORK CORE

x550 switches have the power of Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack), which removes any single point of failure from the network-making them perfect for small business or education solutions.

The diagram shows a pair of x550 switches in an education environment, with link aggregation between the core VCStack and servers, the firewall, and edge switches to provide resilient connectivity.

Allied Telesis edge switches connect and power access points for wireless network connectivity for staff and students, as well as IP security cameras to ensure a safe learning environment.

Autonomous Management Framework (AMF) simplifies and automates many day to day administration tasks, easing the burden of network management. The x550 switches act as the AMF master, automatically backing up the entire network, and providing plug-and-play network growth and zero-touch unit replacement.                           
Autonomous Wave Control (AWC) automatically optimizes the wireless network to maximize performance, and minimize interference.

Vista Manager mini provides integrated management of the AWC wireless network, with floor and heat maps enabling performance monitoring.

Resilient network core

 

INTEGRATED WIRELESS LAN MANAGEMENT

Allied Telesis Autonomous Wave Controller (AWC) offers solutions for two of the most common problems with Wireless LANs: initial setup complexity and on-going performance degradation. Initial WLAN set-up usually requires a site survey to achieve the best coverage; and performance of WLANs can often change over time as external sources of radio interference reduce coverage and bandwidth. These issues can be time-consuming to identify and resolve.

AWC features an intelligent process that automatically re-calibrates the signal strength and radio channel of each Access Point (AP) for optimal WLAN performance.

AWC Smart Connect (AWC-SC) uses wireless uplink connections between APs, so deployment is as easy as plugging in and powering on the new APs, which automatically extend the Wi-Fi network, creating a resilient solution.

Vista Manager mini is integrated into the Device GUI of the x550 Series and provides an ideal solution for modern enterprise networks, enabling management of both the wired (with AMF) and wireless (with AWC) networks to be automated. This reduces both the time and cost of network administration, as well as maximizing network performance for a superior user experience.

Up to 5 TQ Series wireless APs can be managed for free, and up to a further 40 APs (max 45) with feature licenses, available separately.

On some AP models, hybrid channel blanket enables multi-channel and single-channel WiFi operation simultaneously. This supports seamless roaming and maximum throughput. Channel Blanket licenses are available for up to 40 APs. For plug-and-play wireless deployment AWC-SC licenses are available for up to 40 APs.

VLAN ACLs

Simplify access and traffic control across entire segments of the network. Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be applied to a Virtual LAN (VLAN) as well as a specific port.

Software Defined Networking (SDN)

OpenFlow is a key technology that enables the use of SDN to build smart applications that unlock value and reduce cost.

Precision Time Protocol (PTP)

PTP (IEEE 1588v2) sychronizes clocks throughout the network with micro-second accuracy, supporting industrial automation and control systems.

Multi-speed Ports

Copper ports on the x550-18XSPQm support 2.5 and 5 Gigabit connectivity to enable high-speed wireless, and the use of legacy Cat5E/6 cabling.

 

NETWORK DISTRIBUTION

Allied Telesis x550 Series switches are ideal for distribution solutions, where resiliency and flexibility are required. In the above diagram, distribution switches utilize long-distance Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack-LD) to create a single virtual unit out of multiple devices. By using fiber stacking connectivity, units can be kilometers apart-perfect for a distributed environment.

When combined with link aggregation, VCStack provides a solution with no single point of failure, and which fully utilizes all available network bandwidth.

x550 switches provide a resilient and reliable distribution solution to support all networks with business-critical online resources and applications.

RESILIENT NETWORK CORE

x550 switches have the power of Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack), which removes any single point of failure from the network-making them perfect for small business or education solutions.

The diagram shows a pair of x550 switches in an education environment, with link aggregation between the core VCStack and servers, the firewall, and edge switches to provide resilient connectivity.

Allied Telesis edge switches connect and power access points for wireless network connectivity for staff and students, as well as IP security cameras to ensure a safe learning environment.

Autonomous Management Framework (AMF) simplifies and automates many day to day administration tasks, easing the burden of network management. The x550 switches act as the AMF master, automatically backing up the entire network, and providing plug-and-play network growth and zero-touch unit replacement.                           
Autonomous Wave Control (AWC) automatically optimizes the wireless network to maximize performance, and minimize interference.

Vista Manager mini provides integrated management of the AWC wireless network, with floor and heat maps enabling performance monitoring.

INTEGRATED WIRELESS LAN MANAGEMENT

Allied Telesis Autonomous Wave Controller (AWC) offers solutions for two of the most common problems with Wireless LANs: initial setup complexity and on-going performance degradation. Initial WLAN set-up usually requires a site survey to achieve the best coverage; and performance of WLANs can often change over time as external sources of radio interference reduce coverage and bandwidth. These issues can be time-consuming to identify and resolve.

AWC features an intelligent process that automatically re-calibrates the signal strength and radio channel of each Access Point (AP) for optimal WLAN performance.

AWC Smart Connect (AWC-SC) uses wireless uplink connections between APs, so deployment is as easy as plugging in and powering on the new APs, which automatically extend the Wi-Fi network, creating a resilient solution.

Vista Manager mini is integrated into the Device GUI of the x550 Series and provides an ideal solution for modern enterprise networks, enabling management of both the wired (with AMF) and wireless (with AWC) networks to be automated. This reduces both the time and cost of network administration, as well as maximizing network performance for a superior user experience.

Up to 5 TQ Series wireless APs can be managed for free, and up to a further 40 APs (max 45) with feature licenses, available separately.

On some AP models, hybrid channel blanket enables multi-channel and single-channel WiFi operation simultaneously. This supports seamless roaming and maximum throughput. Channel Blanket licenses are available for up to 40 APs. For plug-and-play wireless deployment AWC-SC licenses are available for up to 40 APs.
