To meet the growing need for reliable, flexible, and scalable networks, FS offers S5860 series L3 enterprise switches that have three models, namely S5860-20SQ, S5860-24XB-U, and S5860-48SC. These enterprise switches come with advanced hardware and comprehensive functions to ensure easy operation and network reliability for large-scale campus network aggregations, and small and medium-sized network cores.

Advanced Hardware Designs Ensure Stable Performance

FS S5860 series L3 enterprise switches adopt cutting-edge Broadcom chips to ensure high switching capacity, industry-leading data processing, and stable performance. All S5860 series switches have passed the Ixia test to guarantee your high-performance network. Besides, the S5860 series enterprise switches utilize next-generation energy-saving circuit design and components to save energy and reduce noise pollution.

Various Types of Ports Meet Requirements in Multiple Scenarios

All three FS S5860 series L3 enterprise switches feature 1/10G ports for access switches or servers, and the S5860-24XB-U multi-gigabit hybrid switch has 100M/1/2.5/5/10GBase-T auto-sensing ports for different bandwidth devices. FS S5860 series switches are also equipped with uplinks of 25G/40G/100G for core switches and future expansion, fully meeting diverse requirements for high-density access and high-performance convergence.

Functions and Policies Realize Diverse Safe Network Design

FS S5860 series switches come with a variety of functions and policies that help users realize various network design needs and get a better operation experience:


  • IPv4/IPv6 Dual-Stack Multi-Layer Switching - S5860 series switches support line-rate IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack multi-layer switching and can differentiate and process IPv4 and IPv6 protocol packets, which allows users to build networks in a more flexible way by choosing the most suitable routing protocol, making desired data transmission possible.

  • Virtual Stacking - All optical ports of the three S5860 series switches support virtual stacking with the same or different models. For example, two S5860-20SQ switches can be stacked, and one S5860-20SQ and one S5860-24XB-U can also be stacked. The switch stack can be managed as one logical switch, allowing users to improve work efficiency and enjoy simple network management.

  • Sound Security Protection Policies - FS S5860 series switches provide a variety of mechanisms to prevent bugs and hacker attacks, such as hardware-based IPv6 ACLs, DHCP snooping, SSH, SNMPv3, etc., effectively protecting networks from attacks, thus creating a safer network environment.

  • Quality of Service - QoS allows enterprise switches to prioritize traffic or data flow so that more important data can be handled first. FS S5860 series enterprise switches provide abundant QoS policies to classify and control traffic such as IP traffic, MAC traffic, and application traffic, ensuring timely and efficient processing of critical network traffic.

Easy Network Maintenance Achieves User-Friendly Operation Experience

S5860 series switches provide diverse but simple network maintenance for users. Visualized WebUI ensures them to realize real-time management without having CLI expertise. They also support SNMP (managed by Zabbix), RMON, and log, and configuration backup via USB for routine network diagnosis. And there are multiple methods such as Syslog, CLI, Web-based management, Telnet, SSH, Openflow, and Netconf for network administrators to manage their devices easier.
