The Dell™ PowerConnect™ 3324 and 3348 devices are standalone and stackable advanced Layer 2 switches. PowerConnect 3324 and PowerConnect 3348 also function as stand-alone Layer 2 switching systems. PowerConnect 3324/3348 devices are managed either using In-Band Management (via the network station remotely) or via the console.
When operating as a stack member, each PowerConnect 3324 unit provides 24 10 BaseT/100BaseTX Fast Ethernet ports, one Gigabit Ethernet Combo port (10/100/1000 BaseT or Mini GBIC connector), and one Giga Ethernet stacking port.
PowerConnect 3324/3348 Stacking Overview
PowerConnect 3324/3348 stacking provides multiple device management through a single point as if all stack members are a single unit. All members are accessed through a single IP address for SNMP management and a console/telnet session through which the entire stack is managed.
PowerConnect 3324/3348 supports stacking up to six units per stack or scale up to 192 FE and six Gigabit Ethernet ports. PowerConnect 3324/3348 can also operate as standalone units.
During the stacking setup, one device is selected by the network administrator as the stack master, while all other devices are selected as stack members and assigned a unique Unit ID.
PowerConnect 3324/3348 stacks provide across-the-stack Layer 2 functionality including:
- Port Mirroring
For example, VLANs can be configured from ports belonging to different stack members, or configure port mirroring from a second stack member to a third stack member. Applications running in a stacking configuration are centralized. For example, the Spanning Tree Protocol for the entire stack runs on the master unit. Device software is downloaded separately for each stack member.
PowerConnect 3324/3348 stacking architecture provides dynamic learning for the stacking topology, while detecting and reconfiguring the ports with minimal operational impact in the event of:
- Unit Failure
- Inter-unit Link Loss
- Unit Insertion
- Removal of a Stacking Unit
