3Com SuperStack 3 LAN switches

3Com has announced the SuperStack 3 switch 3870 family, a stackable gigabit ethernet switch line with built-in 10 gigabit expansion slot. The 48-port model and lower cost 24-port version address the growing market momentum of gigabit-to-the-desktop for workgroup switching. The family has 48 ports in a single 1U-high gigabit stackable unit and scalability up to 384 gigabit ports per stack. The new switches also have a 10 gigabit-ready module slot for future expansion and are based on Layer 3-aware hardware. Enterprise-level security features include IEEE 802.1X network login, secure management via secure shell (SSH) and secure sockets layer (SSL/HTTPS) encryption. Four of the ports on each model are “dual- personality”. This means they can operate either as 10/100/1000 copper ports or as SFP-based fibre ports. Available from Tech Pacific, Ingram Micro and LAN Systems.

RRP: SuperStack 3 Switch 3870 48-Port — $8585; Switch 3870 24-Port — $5720
