The Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch 5600 Series is a set of premium, high-performance, highly efficient, Stackable Switches with comprehensive Layer 3 Routing, advanced security and unified communications features. As a flexible, multi-role platform, the Ethernet Routing Switch 5600 is suitable for Wiring Closet, Data Center aggregation and network Core applications.
The Ethernet Routing Switch 5600 Series (ERS 5600) currently includes five different models. Two high-performance, ultra-density 96-port 10/100/1000 models — one with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) support on all ports — dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet XFP uplinks, and deployable with up to three modular, field-replaceable power supplies for N+1 redundancy and/or full Class 3 PoE power. Two 48-port models providing fully non-blocking performance with dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks, and are available as PoE and non-PoE versions. An all-pluggable model rounds out the portfolio, delivering 24 slots for 100/1000BASE-SFP Transceivers and eight 10GBASE-XFP slots (see to Table 1 for more information).The ERS 5600 Series features the latest and most advanced implementation of Avaya's Flexible Advanced Stacking Technology (FAST), also seen on the other Stackable product lines in Avaya's Ethernet Routing Switch portfolio. A key aspect for the ERS 5600 is that these models are 100% Stack-compatible with the original ERS 5500 Series products. Any combination of ERS 5000 Series units — 5500 or 5600 models — can be stacked up to eight units high, or to a maximum of 400 ports. When ERS 5600s are stacking directly together, the stacking bandwidth is 144 Gbps per unit, and when 5600 models are adjacent to 5500 models, the stacking bandwidth is the standard 80 Gbps. In a full, pure Stack of ERS 5600 models (a Stack of eight Switches), the stacking bandwidth is an industry-leading 1.152 Tbps.
This unique 'Hybrid Stacking' capability can ensure that the ERS 5000 Series provides incredible versatility and investment protection; something which is distinctly lacking in many competitive offerings. Being able to mix-and-match models in a Hybrid Stack from the full ERS 5000 Series range enables operators to easily and cost-effectively add to existing ERS 5500 deployments; the requirement could be to scale capacity or to add 10G Ethernet uplinks for the high-performance Wiring Closet and other deployment scenarios.
