Re: 5500 Stacking distance


I think 5500 must be stacked with a specif rear cable (maximum 5 meters).

I you use a fiber,  swicthes are'nt in a stack but uplinked.

Re: 5500 Stacking distance


please check this port upgrade, if you product support the SFP module :

CODE. 3CSFP91 from 2 to 220 meter

CODE. 3CSFP92 from 2 to 550 meter

CODE. 3CSFP97 from 2 to 70 Km

remember to check if your product support all this module, refer to the datasheet of your switch.

Re: 5500 Stacking distance

it is 5500-EI right ? not 5500G-EI ?


5500-EI stack distance is specified by SFP module, if you running 70KM-SFP, so you can stack over 70Km distance


5500G-EI (giga) max stack distance is about 5 meters
