Hey everyone,

Does anyone know if extreme has support for 802.3bz, 2.5 and 5 Gbps speeds on copper, for any of it's summit series switches (and if not in any of the other families)? I've tried searching for this functionality to no avail.

Thanks in advance.

Not currently but they do have plans for it in the very near future.

For 802.11ac APs, I doubt many people will ever see > 1Gbps of actual traffic, particularly when running 20 or 40 MHz channels. So it'll be a nice feature to have, but more for future-proofing than needed now IMHO.
