    The device weighs 5.8 lb (2.640 kg).
  • Can the 1000BASE-X SFP ports be used for 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet?
    No, the 1000BASE-X SFP ports are designed for fiber connections and cannot be used for 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet, which requires RJ45 ports.
  • What are the device's physical dimensions?
    The device's dimensions are 1.73 inches (4.4 cm) in height, 12.0 inches (30.5 cm) in width, and 10.3 inches (26.1 cm) in depth. It occupies 1RU in a rack.
  • Is there support for out-of-band management?
    Yes, the device includes a 10/100BASE-T out-of-band management port for network management.
  • What operating temperature range does the device support?
    The device operates within a temperature range of 0° C to 45° C (32° F to 113° F).
  • What are the storage temperature limits for this device?
    The storage temperature range for the device is from -40°C (-40°F) to 70°C (158°F).
  • How does the device handle humidity?
    The device can operate in conditions of 10% to 95% relative humidity, non-condensing. For storage, the humidity range is the same, 10% to 95% relative humidity, non-condensing.
  • What are the altitude limits for operating this device?
    The device can operate at altitudes from 0 to 3,000 meters (9,850 feet) above sea level.
  • Can this device withstand vibration and shock?
    Yes, it's designed to handle shock (half sine) at 30 m/s2 (3 G), 11 ms, 60 shocks, and random vibration at 3 to 500 Hz at 1.5 G rms.

Product Review

The Extreme 16501 switch offers a versatile mix of 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 4 SFP slots for fiber connectivity, catering to a variety of network infrastructure needs. However, its operating temperature range of 0° C to 45° C may limit deployment in environments with extreme conditions. Additionally, the switch's compact 1RU form factor is ideal for space-constrained installations, though the requirement for external power under certain conditions could be a drawback for some setups.


The Extreme 16501 is a versatile networking switch designed to meet the connectivity needs of modern enterprises. It features a compact form factor, measuring 1RU in height (1.73 inches), 12.0 inches in width, and 10.3 inches in depth, making it suitable for rack-mount installation in space-constrained environments. With a weight of 5.8 lb (2.640 kg), this device is relatively lightweight, facilitating easy installation and maintenance. At the core of its connectivity options, the Extreme 16501 offers 8 10/100/1000BASE-T (RJ45) ports and 4 100/1000BASE-X (SFP) unpopulated ports. These ports support a wide range of networking configurations, allowing for flexible uplink and downlink connections to accommodate various bandwidth requirements. Additionally, the device includes 2 SummitStack ports, enhancing its capability to function within a stack of multiple switches for expanded network capacity and simplified management.
  • 1 Serial (console port) and 1 10/100BASE-T out-of-band management port provide essential access for device configuration and network management.
  • Operating conditions are designed to be resilient, with the switch operational from 0° C to 45° C (32° F to 113° F), humidity tolerances from 10% to 95% relative humidity (non-condensing), and an altitude tolerance up to 3,000 meters (9,850 feet).
  • Durability is a key aspect, with the switch capable of withstanding shock (half sine) of 30 m/s2 (3 G) for 11 ms, 60 shocks, and random vibration from 3 to 500 Hz at 1.5 G rms.
For environments requiring robust performance under various conditions, the Extreme 16501 is designed to operate reliably. It can endure a wide range of temperatures for storage, from -40°C (-40°F) to 70°C (158°F), and maintain operation in environments with humidity levels ranging from 10% to 95% RH (non-condensing). This ensures that the switch can be deployed in a variety of physical environments without concern for performance degradation due to extreme conditions. The device's resilience is further evidenced by its packaging, which is designed to protect against sine vibration (5-62 Hz at velocity 5mm/s, 62- 500 Hz at 0.2G) and random vibration (5-20 Hz at 1.0 ASD with a -3dB/oct. from 20-200 Hz). Additionally, it is capable of withstanding a minimum of 14 drops on sides and corners from a height of 42 inches (for boxes weighing less than 15kg), ensuring that the switch remains intact and functional even after potential shipping or handling mishaps. In summary, the Extreme 16501 is a highly capable and durable networking switch that offers a range of connectivity options for enterprise networks. Its compact size, combined with its resilient operating conditions and robust performance under various environmental stresses, make it a suitable choice for businesses looking to deploy a reliable networking solution that can withstand the demands of modern data communication needs.
