The PowerConnect 3500 series is a family of 24-and 
48-port Fast Ethernet Layer 2 switches. These Layer 2 
switches deliver resilient stacking, advanced security, 
enterprise-class management features and Power-over-
Ethernet (PoE, 3524P and 3548P only), as well as deliver 
impressive switching capacities of up to 12.8 Gbps (3524 
and 3524P) and 17.6 Gbps (3548 and 3548P). The 3500 
series can be deployed in a wide number of different 
network deployment scenarios, including Fast Ethernet 
edge client connectivity and wiring closet deployments. 
Each rack-mountable switch is 1U high and delivers a 
high-performance rack-dense switching solution.

Easy, powerful management

PowerConnect 3500 series switches support a number of 
industry-standard management interfaces such as web-
based management, Command Line Interface (CLI), LLDP, 
LLDP-MED, and Simple Network Management Protocol 
(SNMP v1/v2c/v3). For large network environments, Dell’s 

 Network Manager provides management 

control to help configure large numbers of deployed 
switches more easily. This powerful application is included 
at no additional charge with our managed switches and 
provides one-to-many configuration changes, trap/event 
monitoring, network discovery, and many other features to 
assist you in managing your network. 

Robust security

Advanced security features of PowerConnect 3500 
series switches help protect the network from accidental 
or malicious interference. The switches’ IP and MAC-
based Access Control Lists (ACLs) are designed to 
prevent unauthorized MAC addresses from accessing 
the network. SNMPv3, SSL, and SSH encryption offer the 
added security of encrypting switch management traffic. 
RADIUS and TACACS+ support enables centralized, 
remote authentication of administrative access to the 
switch. Edge authentication using IEEE 802.1x provides 
a meaningful security solution which is centralized and 
easier to manage than standard ACLs. The 3500 series 
also supports DHCP snooping.

Advanced switching features 

The PowerConnect 3524 and 3548 switches support a 
variety of standards-based advanced switching features, 
allowing a network administrator to optimize traffic flow in 
the network. Up to 256 VLANs are supported, as well  
as the IEEE 802.1p protocol to prioritize traffic based  
upon Layer 2 and Layer 3 information. Other advanced 
features include port mirroring, dynamic link aggregation 
(LACP), SMTP, and dedicated voice VLAN support for  
voice-centric environments.

The PowerConnect 3524P and 3548P offer Power-over-
Ethernet capabilities to power IEEE 802.3af compliant 
network-attached devices, such as wireless LAN access 
points, VoIP handsets, and video cameras. Both switches 
can provide up to 15.4W of power per port simultaneously 
for PoE operation (the EPS-470 extended power supply is 
required for the PowerConnect 3548P). 

High availability

The PowerConnect 3500 series offers high availability 
features to meet enterprise networking needs such as 
resilient stacking that can help the network survive a switch 
failure within the stack. Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol 
and Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol support help reduce 
network setup time and improve network availability. 

Lifetime Warranty*

Select PowerConnect switches are backed 
by an industry-leading, lifetime warranty 
which guarantees Basic Hardware 
Service (repair or replacement) for life. 
PowerConnect switches not only provide the quality, 
reliability and capability you expect from Dell, but also the 
peace of mind that comes with a true lifetime warranty.
