Doubt on port density of A5500G EI Switches

Hi All,

 

i have one query about the port density. on te datasheet in shows there are 24 10/100/1000 copper ports and 4 dual personality SFP ports.

 

But when i am using the online configurator it shows 20 10/100/100 copper ports with 4 dual personality ports. but i go to add sfp ports in the configurator the port no. count starts from 25 to 28. it also states that using SFP port will disable the corresponding port.

 

Can some please help me out here.

 

can i use all the 24 10/100/1000 copper ports and still have 4 sfp ports for uplink on this switch.

 

please help me out  i am really stuck at this and not able to provide solution for my customer.

 

Regards

 

Sebastan

Re: Doubt on port density of A5500G EI Switches

On the H3C 5500 switch your talking about the last four copper ports are dual personality with the four GBIC slots. If you install a GBIC it disables the copper port. The GBIC Ports I beleive are labeled to show the corresponding copper port  so the last GBIC port is something like 28/21 meaning the GBIC port number is 28 but using it will disable Copper port 21.
