Both 5420M and 5420F families include 24 and 48-port 1 Gigabit models, as well as 1/2.5 Gigabit multi-rate models. Both also provide 30/60/90W PoE capabilities making them an ideal wired backend for wireless APs or in support of next gen power Ethernet devices, such as digital signage, pan- tilt-zoom cameras, smart lighting, or point-of-sale terminals.
Universal Hardware Platform
The 5420 Series as a universal hardware platform comes with a dual-persona capability allowing user choice of the switch operating system (OS). Either the Switch Engine (EXOS)1 or Fabric Engine (VOSS)2 persona can be enabled on 5420 hardware models. The desired persona can be selected at start-up or changed at a later stage. Once selected, the 5420 assumes the features/capabilities of the selected OS.
5420 persona activation can be done manually at boot- up, including via the system CLI. Or, it can be automated by pre-provisioning the 5420 persona in ExtremeCloud IQ. When first booted, the 5420 automatically connects to ExtremeCloud IQ to find its persona. The pre-provisioned OS persona is then remotely enabled on the 5420 system – eliminating the need for manual selection.
Power over Ethernet (PoE)
The 5420 Series includes Power over Ethernet models supporting standards-based IEEE 802.3bt (30/60/90W) PoE capabilities. This enables the 5420 to address the needs of powered edge devices, while eliminating the need for additional electrical cabling and circuits. In addition, 5420 PoE models also support perpetual and fast PoE for even more efficient and reliable powered edge device operation
Audio Video Bridging
The 5420 series supports IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging when running Switch Engine (EXOS) for reliable, real-time audio/video transmission over Ethernet. AVB technology delivers the quality of service required for today’s high- definition and time-sensitive multimedia streams.
