x510 Series


Allied Telesis x510 Series switches are a high-performing and feature-rich choice for today’s networks. They offer a versatile solution for Enterprise applications. With a choice of 24- and 48-port models with 1/10Gigabit uplink ports, plus the power of Allied Telesis Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack™), the x510 Series can connect anything from a small workgroup to a large business.

Powerful network management

Meeting the increased management requirements of modern converged networks, Allied Telesis Autonomous Management Framework (AMF) automates many everyday tasks including configuration management. The complete network can be managed as a single virtual device with powerful centralized management features. Growing the network can be accomplished with plug-and-play simplicity, and network node recovery is fully zero-touch.

AMF secure mode increases network security with management traffic encryption, authorization, and monitoring. AMF Guestnode allows third party devices, such as IP phones and security cameras, to be part of an AMF network.

Network resiliency

The convergence of network services in the enterprise has led to increasing demand for highly available networks with minimal downtime. VCStack, in conjunction with link aggregation, provides a network with no single point of failure and an easy, resilient solution for high availability applications. The x510 Series can form a VCStack of up to four units for enhanced resiliency and simplified device management.

Allied Telesis Ethernet Protection Switched Ring (EPSRing™), and the standards-based G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection, ensure that distributed network segments have high-speed, resilient access to online resources and applications.

Ring Protection and VCStack Long- Distance (VCStack-LD), which enables stacks to be created over long distance fiber links, make the x510 Series the perfect choice for distributed environments.


The x510 Series was designed with reliability in mind, and guarantees continual delivery of essential services. With dual built-in power supplies and near-hitless online stack reconfiguration, maintenance may be performed without
affecting network uptime.

The x510DP features dual hot-swappable load-sharing power supplies for maximum uptime. With front-to-back or back-to-front cooling options, the x510DP is ideal for data center applications.

The x510L Series switches enable high-value solutions at the network edge.


Advanced security features protect the network. Unprecedented control over user access is provided with Network Access Control (NAC), mitigating threats to network infrastructure. This ensures the network is accessed only by known users and devices — all users’ adherence to network security policies is checked, and then either access is granted or remediation is offered. Secure access can also be provided for guests.


The x510 Series ensures a future-proof network, with superior flexibility coupled with the ability to stack multiple units. All x510 Series models feature 1/10 Gigabit uplinks ports and a comprehensive IPv6 feature set, to ensure they are ready for future network traffic demands. All x510 24-port models are Software Defined Networking (SDN) ready and are able to support OpenFlow v1.3.

Environmentally friendly

The x510 Series supports Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), automatically reducing the power consumed by the switch whenever there is no traffic on a port. This sophisticated feature can significantly reduce operating costs by reducing the power requirements of the switch and any associated cooling equipment.

Key Features

Allied Telesis Autonomous Management Framework (AMF)

  • AMF is a sophisticated suite of management tools that provide a simplified approach to network management. Common tasks are automated or made so simple that the everyday running of a network can be achieved without the need for highly-trained, and expensive, network engineers. Powerful features like centralized management, auto-backup, auto-upgrade, auto-provisioning and auto-recovery enable plug-and-play networking and zero-touch management.
  • Any x510 Series switch can operate as the AMF network master, storing firmware and configuration backups for other network nodes. The AMF master enables auto-provisioning and auto-upgrade by providing appropriate files to new network members. New network devices can be pre-provisioned making installation easy because no on-site configuration is required.
  • AMF secure mode encrypts all AMF traffic, provides unit and user authorization, and monitors network access to greatly enhance network security.
  • AMF Guestnode allows Allied Telesis wireless access points and further switching products, as well as third party devices such as IP phones and security cameras, to be part of an AMF network.

Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack)

  • Create a VCStack of up to four units with 40 Gbps of stacking bandwidth to each unit. Stacking links are connected in a ring so each device has dual connections to further improve resiliency. VCStack provides a highly available system where network resources are spread out across stacked units, reducing the impact if one of the units fails. Aggregating switch ports on different units across the stack provides excellent network resiliency.

Long-Distance Stacking

  • Long-distance stacking allows a VCStack to be created over fiber links to span longer distances, perfect for a distributed network environment.

Ethernet Protection Switched Ring (EPSRing)

  • EPSRing and 10 Gigabit Ethernet allow several switches to form high-speed protected rings capable of recovery within as little as 50ms. This feature is perfect for high performance and high availability at the core of enterprise or provider access networks.
  • Super-Loop Protection (SLP) enables a link between two EPSR nodes to be in separate EPSR domains, improving redundancy and network fault resiliency.

G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection

  • G.8032 provides standards-based high-speed ring protection, that can be deployed stand-alone, or interoperate with Allied Telesis EPSR.
  • Ethernet Connectivity Fault Monitoring (CFM) proactively monitors links and VLANs, and provides alerts when a fault is detected.

Industry-leading Quality of Service (QoS)

  • Comprehensive low-latency wire speed QoS provides flow-based traffic management with full classification, prioritization, traffic shaping and min/max bandwidth profiles. Boosted network performance and guaranteed delivery of business-critical Ethernet services and applications are provided. Time-critical services such as voice and video take precedence over non-essential services such as file downloads, maintaining responsiveness of Enterprise applications.

Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+)

  • With PoE, a separate power connection to media endpoints such as IP phones and wireless access points is not necessary. PoE+ reduces costs and provides even greater flexibility, providing the capability to connect devices requiring more power (up to 30 Watts) such as pan, tilt and zoom security cameras.

High Reliability

  • The x930 series switches feature front to back cooling and dual power supply units (PSUs). The x930 features dual hot-swappable load sharing power supplies for maximum uptime, and the option of either front-to-back or back-to-front cooling. This makes it ideal for use as a top-of-rack data center switch.

Voice VLAN

  • Voice VLAN automatically separates voice and data traffic into two different VLANs. This automatic separation places delay-sensitive traffic into a voice- dedicated VLAN, which simplifies QoS configurations.

Open Shortest Path First (OSPFv3)

  • OSPF is a scalable and adaptive routing protocol for IP networks. The addition of OSPFv3 adds support for IPv6 and further strengthens the Allied Telesis focus on next generation networking.


  • sFlow is an industry-standard technology for monitoring high-speed switched networks. It provides complete visibility into network use, enabling performance optimization, usage accounting/billing, and defense against security threats. Sampled packets sent to a collector ensure it always has a real-time view of network traffic.

VLAN Mirroring (RSPAN)

  • VLAN mirroring allows traffic from a port on a remote switch to be analysed locally. Traffic being transmitted or received on the port is duplicated and sent across the network on a special VLAN.

Optical DDM

  • Most modern optical SFP/SFP+/XFP transceivers support Digital Diagnostics Monitoring (DDM) functions according to the specification SFF-8472. This enables real time monitoring of the various parameters of the transceiver, such as optical output power, temperature, laser bias current and transceiver supply voltage. Easy access to this information simplifies diagnosing problems with optical modules and fiber connections.

Active Fiber Monitoring

  • Active Fiber Monitoring prevents eavesdropping on fiber communications by monitoring received optical power. If an intrusion is detected, the link can be automatically shut down, or an operator alert can be sent. Active Fiber Monitoring is supported on fiber data and fiber stacking links.


  • Authentication options on the x510 Series also include alternatives to IEEE 802.1x port-based authentication, such as web authentication, to enable guest access and MAC authentication for endpoints that do not have an IEEE 802.1x supplicant. All three authentication methods—IEEE 802.1x, MAC-based and Web-based—can be enabled simultaneously on the same port for tri-authentication.

TACACS+ Command Authorization

  • Centralize control of which commands may be issued by a specific user of an AlliedWare Plus device. TACACS+ command authorization complements authentication and accounting services for a complete AAA solution.

Premium Software License

  • By default, the x510 Series offers a comprehensive Layer 2 and basic Layer 3 feature set that includes static routing and IPv6 management features. The feature set can easily be elevated to full Layer 3 by applying the premium software license. This adds dynamic routing protocols and Layer 3 multicasting capabilities.

Software-Defined Networking (SDN)

  • OpenFlow is a key technology that enables the use of SDN to build smart applications that unlock value and reduce cost.


  • Simplify access and traffic control across entire segments of the network. Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be applied to a Virtual LAN (VLAN) as well as a specific port.

Upstream Forwarding Only (UFO)

  • UFO lets you manage which ports in a VLAN can communicate with each other, and which only have upstream access to services, for secure multi-user deployment.

VLAN Translation

  • VLAN Translation allows traffic arriving on a VLAN to be mapped to a different VLAN on the outgoing paired interface.
  • In Metro networks, it is common for a network Service Provider (SP) to give each customer their own unique VLAN, yet at the customer location give all customers the same VLAN-ID for tagged packets to use on the wire. SPs can use VLAN Translation to change the tagged packet’s VLAN-ID at the customer location to the VLAN-ID for tagged packets to use within the SP’s network.
  • This feature is also useful in Enterprise environments where it can be used to merge two networks together, without manually reconfiguring the VLAN numbering scheme. This situation can occur if two companies have merged and the same VLAN-ID is used for two different purposes.
x510 Resilient Distribution

Resilient distribution switching

Allied Telesis x510 Series switches are ideal for distribution solutions, where resiliency and flexibility are required. In the above diagram, distribution switches utilize long-distance Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack-LD) to create a single virtual unit out of multiple devices. By using fiber stacking connectivity, units can be kilometers apart – perfect for a distributed environment.

When combined with link aggregation, VCStack provides a solution with no single point of failure that fully utilizes all network bandwidth.

Allied Telesis x510 Series switches support Enterprises and their use of business-critical online resources
and applications, with a resilient and reliable
distribution solution.

Peace of mind at the network edge

Allied Telesis x510L Series switches make the ideal choice at the network edge where security, resiliency and flexibility are required. In the above diagram, security is enforced using Network Access Control (NAC) combined with tri-authentication to prevent unauthorized users and devices from connecting to the network. Link aggregations are used to provide both resiliency back to the core chassis, and an increase in available bandwidth over a single link. Flexibility is ensured with the range of interface types and PoE options available on the x510L Series.

Education network

Resilient small network core

The x510DP models have two hot-swappable load-sharing PSUs for the ultimate in reliability and ease of maintenance. The x510DP switches also feature the power of Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack), removing any single point of failure from the network, and making them perfect for small business or education solutions.

The diagram shows a pair of x510DP switches in an education environment, where link aggregation between the VCStack core and servers, the firewall, and edge switches provides resilient connectivity.

Allied Telesis edge switches connect and power access points for wireless network connectivity for staff and students, as well as IP security cameras to ensure a safe learning environment.

The Allied Telesis Autonomous Management Framework (AMF) simplifies and automates many day to day administration tasks, easing the burden of network management. The x510DP switches act as the AMF master, automatically backing up the entire network, and providing plug-and-play network growth and zero-touch unit replacement.
