Product Review

The Avaya AL3500A16-E6 offers a versatile port configuration, including 48 10/100/1000BASE-T ports with PoE support, additional SFP and SFP+ uplink ports, and HiStack ports for enhanced connectivity and scalability. However, its switch capacity and forwarding rate are standard for its class, and the power consumption of up to 500 Watts may be a concern for energy-conscious deployments. With a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 336,357 hours, it demonstrates reliability, but the system memory might be limiting for complex network tasks requiring extensive data buffering or processing.


The Avaya AL3500A16-E6, part of the ERS3549GTS-PWR+ series, is equipped with 48 10/100/1000BASE-T ports that feature both IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) and IEEE 802.3at PoE+ capabilities, making it an ideal solution for deploying modern, power-dependent network devices without the need for additional power supplies. This switch also includes 2 Combo SFP ports that double up with ports 47-48 for fiber connectivity and one SFP+ uplink port supporting either 1Gig or 10Gig speeds, offering flexibility in connecting to network backbones or other switches. Additionally, the presence of 2 rear SFP ports provides options for further network expansion.
  • Switch capacity and forwarding rate are set at 52Gbps and 38.7Mpps, respectively, ensuring efficient handling of network traffic.
  • System memory includes 32MB Flash and 128MB DRAM to support the switch's operations and firmware.
  • Two rear HiStack ports enable stacking of multiple chassis with up to 10Gbps (full-duplex) bandwidth, simplifying network management and scalability.
Physical characteristics of the device include a 1U height rack-mountable design, with dimensions of 44.5mm in height, 440mm in width, and 280mm in depth. The switch weighs 4.61kg, making it a compact yet powerful component of any network infrastructure. Connectivity options are further enhanced by the inclusion of an RJ-45 Console port, which provides standard serial port connectivity for management purposes. The switch is designed to operate efficiently, with a maximum input voltage range from 100 to 240 VAC at 47 to 63 HZ, and it can draw a maximum input current of 5.0A at 100VAC. Power consumption is capped at 500 Watts maximum, with a thermal output rating of 357 BTU/hr max. This efficiency is balanced with the device's capability to provide a maximum power budget of 370 Watts for connected devices. Durability and reliability are key aspects of the Avaya AL3500A16-E6's design, as evidenced by its Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of 336,357 hours.
