Port Description

10/100/1000BASE-T port
A 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet electrical port sends and receives service data at 10/100/1000 Mbit/s, and must use an Ethernet cable. Table 5-769 describes the attributes of a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet electrical port.
Table 5-769 Attributes of a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet electrical port



Connector type


Standards compliance

IEEE802.3, IEEE802.3u, IEEE802.3ab

Working mode

10/100/1000 Mbit/s auto-sensing

Maximum transmission distance

100 m

10GE SFP+ port
A 10GE SFP+ Ethernet optical port supports auto-sensing to 1000 Mbit/s. It sends and receives service data at 1000 Mbit/s or 10 Gbit/s. Table 5-770 describes the attributes of a 10GE SFP+ Ethernet optical port.

Optical port attributes

Depend on the optical module used

Standards compliance


Working mode

GE/10GE auto-sensing

Console port
The console port is connected to a console for on-site configuration. The port must use a console cable. The console port is used when a switch is powered on for the first time. For details about the attributes of a console port, see Table 5-771.
Table 5-771 Attributes of a console port



Connector type


Standards compliance


Working mode

Duplex Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART)

Baud rate

9600 bit/s, 19200 bit/s, 38400 bit/s, 57600 bit/s, or 115200 bit/s

Default value: 9600 bit/s

Mini USB port

The mini USB port is connected to a console for on-site configuration. When both the Mini USB and console port have a cable connected, only the Mini USB port works.

ETH management port
You can connect a switch to a configuration terminal or network management workstation through the ETH management port to configure the switch locally or remotely. The port must use an Ethernet cable. You can choose to download the software package through the ETH management port in the BootROM menu. File transfer through the ETH management port is faster than transfer through the console port. For details on how to use the ETH management port, see the Configuration Guide - Basic Configurations. Table 5-772 describes the attributes of an ETH management port.
Table 5-772 Attributes of an ETH management port

Standards compliance


Working mode

10/100 Mbit/s auto-sensing

Maximum transmission distance

100 m

USB port
The USB port can have a USB flash drive connected to upgrade the switch, or transfer configuration files or other files. The USB port can only connect to a USB flash drive that complies with USB 2.0.

USB flash drives from different vendors differ in model compatibility and drivers. If a USB flash drive cannot be used, try to replace it with another one from a mainstream vendor. Switches support a maximum of 128 GB USB flash drives.

Indicator Description

The S5710-52C-PWR-EI-AC has the same types of indicators as the S5710-28C-PWR-EI-AC. For details, see Indicator Description.

Power Supply Configuration

The S5710-52C-PWR-EI-AC is a PoE switch and uses 580 W AC PoE power modules. It has two power module slots. Table 5-773 lists its power supply configurations.

Table 5-773 Power supply configurations
Power Module 1 Power Module 2 Available PoE Power Maximum Number of Ports (Fully Loaded)
580 W 369.6 W
  • 802.3af (15.4 W per port): 24
  • 802.3at (30 W per port): 12
580 W 580 W 739.2 W
  • 802.3af (15.4 W per port): 48
  • 802.3at (30 W per port): 24

When a switch has two power modules installed, the two power modules work in redundancy mode to provide power for the chassis and in load balancing mode to provide power for PDs.

Figure 5-307 shows the power supply mode of dual AC PoE power modules (PWR1 and PWR2). After AC power is transmitted to the PWR modules, the PWR modules provide 12 V and -53 V outputs. The outputs are combined on the motherboard, which then provides 12 V voltage for the switch and -53 V voltage for the PDs.

Heat Dissipation

The S5710-52C-PWR-EI-AC has five built-in fans for forced air cooling. The airflow direction is left-to-right.

This figure only shows the airflow direction and does not depict the actual device.
