Two Basic Models + Innovative RTU Licenses = 45 Models

Enabling On-Demand GE, 2.5GE, 5GE, and 10GE Configurations

S5732- H24UM2CC and S5732- H48UM2CC adopt the RTU license mode, enabling port capabilities to be configured and scaled out on demand. The switches are available in two full-GE basic models and can evolve to 43 brand-new port models through six types of RTU licenses (One RTU license per 12 ports).

 RTU license Q&A

Q: Can you start with 12-port and then add RTU up to 48-port? Only enable 12-port for use at the beginning, the rest disabled?
A: No. The base models will come with all 24/48-ports enabled and supporting up to 1G. Then you can choose to upgrade the performance for every 12-ports to 2.5G, 5G or 10G.

Q: Is the license a one-time fee or is it subscription-based with yearly fee?
A: RTU is a one-time fee.
