Key Features

Vista Manager mini

  • Integrated into the Device GUI, Vista Manager mini provides full network visibility of AMF wired and AWC wireless devices. Manage and simplify wireless deployment with AWC-Smart Connect, and support optimal wireless performance from AWC hybrid operation with maximum throughout and a seamless Wi-Fi user experience.

Allied Telesis Autonomous Management Framework (AMF)

  • AMF is a sophisticated suite of management tools that provide a simplified approach to zero-touch network management.
  • Any x530 Series 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 onsite configuration is required.
  • AMF Guestnode allows Allied Telesis wireless APs and other switching products, as well as third-party devices such as IP phones and security cameras, to be part of an AMF network.

AWC Wireless Management

  • Optimize wireless network performance with the Autonomous Wave Controller (AWC), built-in to the x530 Series. AWC analyzes wireless traffic patterns and automatically reconfigures access points to meet demand.
  • Wireless network operation in multi-channel, single-channel (Channel Blanket), and hybrid (multi-channel and Channel Blanket) modes, supports maximum data throughput and seamless roaming for the most flexible wireless solution available.
  • AWC-Smart Connect (AWC-SC) enables plug-and play wireless network growth, as new APs only need a power connection, and will then automatically create resilient wireless uplink connections to other APs.

Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack)

  • The x530 Series supports VCStack up to 8 units with 40Gbps bandwidth for each unit. VCStack, in conjunction with link aggregation, provides a high available system where network resources are spread out across stacked units, providing excellent resiliency.

Long-Distance Stacking (VCStack LD)

  • VCStack LD allows a VCStack to be created over longer distances, perfect for distributed network environments.

Ethernet Protection Switched Ring (EPSRing)

  • EPSRing and 10 Gigabit Ethernet allow several x530 Series 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 in enterprise networks.
  • Super-Loop Protection (SLP) enables a link between two EPSR nodes to be in separate EPSR domains, improving redundancy and network fault resiliency.
  • The x530 Series switches can act as the ESPR Master, or be deployed as EPSR transit nodes, in a high-speed ring.

G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection

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

Multi-Gigabit Ethernet

  • The new IEEE 802.3bz standard (also known as “NBASE-T”) allows traffic speeds of greater than 1 Gigabit on legacy Cat5e cable. The x530 Series supports both 2.5 and 5 Gigabit connectivity allowing high-speed wireless access points to run at full capacity without re-cabling.

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.
  • The x530 Series allows the configuration of the overall power budget, as well as the power limit per port.

Active Fiber Monitoring (AFM)

  • AFM 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.

Continuous PoE

  • Continuous PoE allows the switch to be restarted without affecting the supply of power to connected devices. Smart lighting, security cameras, and other PoE devices will continue to operate during a software upgrade on the switch.

Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF Lite)

  • VRF Lite provides Layer 3 network virtualization by dividing a single switch into multiple independent virtual routing domains. With independent routing domains, IP addresses can overlap without causing conflict, allowing multiple customers to have their own secure virtual network within the same physical infrastructure. VRF Lite on the x530 Series supports both unicast and multicast traffic.

High Reliability

  • The x530 Series feature front to back cooling and dual fixed internal PSUs.


  • sFlow is an industry-standard technology for real-time monitoring high-speed switched networks. It provides complete visibility into network use, enabling performance optimization, usage accounting/billing, and defense against security threats.

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+/QSFP transceivers support Digital Diagnostics Monitoring (DDM). This enables real time monitoring of 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.

Premium Software License

  • By default, the x530 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.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Snooping

  • DHCP servers allocate IP addresses to clients, and the switch keeps a record of addresses issued on each port. IP source guard checks against this DHCP snooping database to ensure only clients with specific IP and/or MAC address can access the network. DHCP snooping can be combined with other features, like dynamic ARP inspection, to increase security in Layer 2 switched environments, and also provides a traceable history, which meets the growing legal requirements placed on service providers.

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.
  • 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.

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.

Distribution and Edge Connectivity

x530 resilient distribution switching

Allied Telesis x530 Series switches are ideal for distribution solutions, where resiliency and flexibility are required. In the above diagram, distribution switches utilize long distance 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 x530 Series switches support Enterprises and their use of business-critical online resources and applications, with a resilient and reliable distributed solution.

Peace of mind at the network edge

Allied Telesis x530 Series switches are the ideal choice for 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 aggregation is used to provide resiliency back to the core chassis, and to increase available bandwidth over a single link.

With 740 Watts of PoE power available, the x530 can provide the full 30 Watts of PoE+ on up to 24 ports, to connect and power a wide range of devices.


Multi-Gigabit connectivity

x530 multi-gigabit

The x530 Series feature 4 or 8 Multi-Gigabit ports which enable higher speed connectivity at 2.5 or 5Gbps.

This supports new applications such as Wave 2 wireless access points to maximize data throughout and remove bottlenecks, increasing the effectiveness of the WiFi network. It also enables network backbone upgrades from 1 to 5 Gbps without the need to replace existing Cat5e and Cat6/6A cables.


Integrated wireless LAN management

x530 Integrated wireless LAN management

Allied Telesis Autonomous Wave Controller (AWC) offers solutions for two of the most common problems with Wireless LANs: initial setup complexity and on-going performance degradation. Initial WLAN set-up usually requires a site survey to achieve the best coverage; and performance of WLANs can often change over time as external sources of radio interference reduce coverage and bandwidth. These issues can be time-consuming to identify and resolve.

AWC features an intelligent process that automatically re-calibrates the signal strength and radio channel of each Access Point (AP) for optimal WLAN performance.

AWC Smart Connect (AWC-SC) uses wireless uplink connections between APs, so deployment is as easy as plugging in and powering on the new APs, which automatically extend the Wi-Fi network, creating a resilient solution.

Vista Manager mini is integrated into the Device GUI of the x530 Series and provides an ideal solution for modern enterprise networks, enabling management of both the wired (with AMF) and wireless (with AWC) networks to be automated. This reduces both the time and cost of network administration, as well as maximizing network performance for a superior user experience.

Up to 5 TQ Series wireless APs can be managed for free, and up to a further 40 APs (max 45) with feature licenses, available separately.

On some AP models, hybrid channel blanket enables multi-channel and single-channel WiFi operation simultaneously. This supports seamless roaming and maximum throughput. Channel Blanket licenses are available for up to 40 APs. For plug-and-play wireless deployment AWC-SC licenses are available for up to 40 APs.
