Port Description

10/100BASE-TX port
A 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet electrical port sends and receives service data at 10/100 Mbit/s, and must use an Ethernet cable. Table 4-93 lists the attributes of a 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet electrical port.
Table 4-93 Attributes of a 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet electrical port



Connector type


Standards compliance

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

Electrical port attributes


  • A medium dependent interface (MDI) provides the physical and electrical connection to the cabling medium. Ethernet ports of most NICs are MDIs.
  • A medium dependent interface crossover (MDIX) enables connection between like devices. MDIX ports are usually used on hubs or LAN switches.

Working mode

10/100 Mbit/s auto-sensing

Maximum transmission distance

100 m

1000BASE-X port
A 1000BASE-X Ethernet optical port sends and receives service data at 1000 Mbit/s. Table 4-94 describes the attributes of a 1000BASE-X Ethernet optical port.

Optical port attributes

Depend on the optical module used

Standards compliance


Working mode

1000 Mbit/s

Combo port
A combo port consists of an optical Ethernet port and an electrical Ethernet port on the panel. Each combo port matches only one internal forwarding port. The electrical and optical ports of a combo port are multiplexed, and only one of them can work at a time. When one of the Ethernet ports is working, the other port is shut down.

By default, a combo port works in auto mode, in which the port type is determined as follows:

  • If the optical port has no optical module installed and the electrical port has no Ethernet cable connected, the port type depends on which port is connected first. If the electrical port is connected by an Ethernet cable first, the electrical port is used for data switching. If the optical port has an optical module installed first, the optical port is used for data switching.
  • If the electrical port has an Ethernet cable connected and is in Up state, the electrical port is still used for data switching when the optical port has an optical module installed.
  • If the optical port, no matter in Up or Down state, has an optical module installed, the optical port is still used for data switching when the electrical port has an Ethernet cable connected.
  • If the optical port has an optical module installed and the electrical port has an Ethernet cable connected, the optical port is used for data switching after the switch restarts.
You can configure a combo port as an electrical or optical port using the combo-port command.
Console port
The console port of a switch can connect to an operation terminal for onsite configuration. The port must use Console Cable. To configure a switch after the first power-on, log in to the switch through the console port. Table 4-95 lists attributes of a console port.
Table 4-95 Attributes of a console port



Connector type


Standards compliance


Working mode

Full-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

Indicator Description

The S2720-28TP-EI-AC has the same types of indicators as the S2750-28TP-EI-AC. For details, see Indicator Description.

Power Supply Configuration

The S2720-28TP-EI-AC has a built-in power module and does not support pluggable power modules.

Figure 4-40 shows the power supply mode of a built-in AC power module. The built-in AC power module (PWR) receives power from an external power source and provides a 12 V output to the chassis.

GND: 12 V reference ground

Heat Dissipation

The S2720-28TP-EI-AC has no fans and uses natural heat dissipation.

Operating temperature

-5°C to +50°C (23°F to 122°F) at an altitude of 0-1800 m (0-5906 ft.)

When the altitude is between 1800 m (5906 ft.) and 5000 m (16404 ft.), the highest operating temperature reduces by 1°C (1.8°F) every time the altitude increases by 220 m (722 ft.).

The operating temperature of the switch is -5°C to +45°C (23°F to 113°F) when it uses SFP optical modules with 80 km or longer transmission distances.
