Title: Dell Computer Corp. PowerConnect 3024 & PowerConnect 3248 Layer 2 Interoperability Evaluation

Publication date:   01 August 2002
Document number:    202138

Abstract:

Dell Computer Corp. commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate the Layer 2 interoperability of the PowerConnect 3024, version 5.2.4, an enterprise edge switch and the PowerConnect 3248, version 1.0.1.3, also an enterprise edge switch. The Tolly Group engineers put both devices through a battery of tests designed to reveal the depth of interoperability each switch provides. The devices were tested for interoperability with twelve other switches from eight other network infrastructure vendors. Tests were conducted in conjunction with The Tolly Group/Network World Switch Interoperability Study 2002; vendors configured their own devices for testing. Mandatory Layer 2 tests included auto-negotiation, Link Aggregation (802.3ad), Gigabit Ethernet uplink support and support for IEEE 802.1p/Q.
