Hi!

I have customers that have ordered the new 5520 (funny name as Avaya/Nortel had a 5520 in the past). They all say that they’d like to know the specs for the smaller siblings 5420 and 5320 as soon as possible. I know they’re not released but perhaps some Extreme SE leaked some specs, like 10 G SFP port density and so on. Any rumors out there?

Ok, thanks a lot. There are prices, but I can’t see anything on ports apart from some guesses based on the part number designations and the descriptions provided.

5420M-48W-4YE    5420M 48port 802.3bt 90w PoE Switch

Would -4YE mean 4 x 1/10/25 G SFP+/SFP28 ports?

5420F-48P-4XL    5420F 48port PoE+ Switch w/ LRM
5420F-16W-32P-4XE    5420F 16port 802.3bt 90w & 32 PoE+
5420F-16MW-32P-4XE    5420F 16port MR 802.3bt 90w & 32 PoE+

-4XE - 4 x SFP+ I assume

-4XL - 4 x SFP+ with LRE support

5420M - I’m guessing multirate access ports (1 / 2.5 G)

5420F - I’m guessing 1 G access ports

Interesting!

al the info you are looking for is in the column Product description

Well I can guess from the description column, but it doesn’t state clearly that YE is actually 1/10/25 G, 10/25 or just 25 G for instance.

I failed to see the difference in these two, apart from the F/M suffix and the YE/XE that probably means 25 (Y) or 10 (X) Gbps.

5420M-16MW-32P-4YE    5420M 16port MR 802.3bt 90w & 32 PoE+
5420F-16MW-32P-4XE    5420F 16port MR 802.3bt 90w & 32 PoE+

I thought the F and M were different models where M was the multi rate switch, but now I see that all M-models have the -4YE suffis, so probably SFP28 slots and the F only has SFP+ as they all have the -XE suffix.

I think I get it now. Thanks for the link!

Datasheets on these are fuzzy. We were quoted and moments away from getting 47 of 5520's. I had one our staff on build call, just simple upgrade here. Only question was sfp+ ports, since QFS28P clearly marked. I don't have to purchase this equipment much, but uplink ports, redundancy, would seem obvious. Even options much less come with at worst dual sfp+  Either overpriced fan out cable with transceiver that works, or a market price for VIM-4X that's ridiculous. Then added support. 

 

If anyone has information otherwise, I'd love to hear it. Someone needs to put this company back on track. I love Extreme because they never were or wanted to be Cisco. I get it, pick your ports, fun, to sell them with zero, or try unless the exact question needed is asked. On that, need a new A8, if anyone wants my purple A8, barely any miles. Looks like it was made to be a switch. $100, just want it gone.

 

If you want the engine too, definitely let me know. I hope no one makes an offer without reading this, which sort of explained but not, and especially if used to VIM or expansion on back. 

Hi All,

Is there updated news yet? I am curios.

Thanks Remko
