integrates – into the front panel – dual Gigabit Ethernet uplinks including built-in 1000BaseT ports and optional
1000BaseSX and 1000BaseLX ports with transceiver modules. The PowerConnect 3248 is an ideal edge switch for

the edge of the network.
The PowerConnect 5224 incorporates 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a 1U form factor capable of wire-speed switching
throughput with a total switching capacity of up to 48 Gigabits/second. The 24 ports are built-out as 10/100/
1000BaseT ports, and four of these ports can accommodate optional 1000BaseSX and 1000BaseLX transceivers to
support fibre media. The PowerConnect 5224 is an ideal switch for data centre connectivity, Layer 2 traffic aggregation
and emerging Gigabit Ethernet client connectivity.
Switch Management
The PowerConnect 3248 and PowerConnect 5224 support a variety of management interfaces, including an
easy-to-use embedded Web interface and an industry standard command line interface (CLI), which allows your
network administrator to utilise existing switch configuration skills. The switches can be managed remotely via a Web
browser, Telnet or simple network management protocol (SNMP), and support a comprehensive management
information base (MIB) as well as four RMON groups. This broad management support helps ensure integration into
a variety of third party network management applications.
RADIUS support enables centralised, remote authentication of administrative access to the switch. In addition,
the switches can store dual configuration and firmware images, while supporting the upload and download of
configuration and firmware files to a server.
Layer 3 and Layer 4 Traffic Classification
Giving priority to data packets that are associated with critical network traffic is a key requirement for deploying
emerging applications like video conferencing and voice-over-IP. The PowerConnect 3248 and PowerConnect 5224
provide four priority queues per port. Packets can be classified based on the Layer 2 IEEE 802.1p standard, Layer 3 IP
Precedence or IP Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) standard, or Layer 4 standard utilising TCP/UDP ports
(Layer 4 supported in PowerConnect 3248 only). This helps you increase your deployment flexibility and
protect your networking infrastructure investment.
Advanced Protocol Support
Supporting emerging industry standards, both PowerConnect switches are designed to provide interoperability with
your core networking equipment and offer ease of use and availability. The supported standards include dynamic
VLANs (GVRP), dynamic link aggregation (LACP) and IP Multicast (IGMP v1 and v2).
Peripherals Support
Overall availability can be further increased by deploying the optional Dell PowerConnect RPS-600 redundant power
system. Each PowerConnect RPS-600 provides a dedicated, redundant power supply for up to four PowerConnect 3248
or PowerConnect 5224 switches, eliminating the switch's internal power supply as a single point of failure.
Moreover, the optional 1000SX and 1000LX optical Gigabit Ethernet transceivers are small form-factor pluggable (SFP)
designs, and support distances between 220m and 5km, depending on the type of fibre media used.
Dell PowerConnect 3248 and PowerConnect 5224 switches deliver performance and flexibility, while easily
integrating into your existing network environment.
