Title: Dell PowerConnect 5324 and Dell PowerConnect 3324 Functionality Certification and Interoperability Evaluation

Publication date:   02 December 2004
Document number:    204156

Abstract:

Dell, Inc. commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate the Layer 2 interoperability of the PowerConnect 5324, a 24-port Gigabit Ethernet switch, and the PowerConnect 3324, a 24-port Fast Ethernet switch. The Tolly Group engineers put the PowerConnect switches through a battery of tests along with seven other switches from five vendors to reveal the depth of interoperability each switch provides. Tests were conducted in November 2004 at The Tolly Group’s Boca Raton, FL., test facilities as part of its Switch Interoperability 2004 program.

Tolly Group engineers validated five advanced LAN services/functions under The Tolly Group’s Tolly Verified certification program that are essential to enterprise networks. Engineers evaluated the PowerConnect 5324 and PowerConnect 3324 for their support for auto-negotiation, 802.1 p/Q VLAN tag propagation, 802.3ad Link Aggregation, Accelerated Convergence Spanning Tree 802.1w, and Jumbo Frames. In every instance, the PowerConnect switches proved their interoperability with other switches tested.
