Stacking with Avaya 5650-TD & 5510/20
« on: September 05, 2018, 04:39:43 AM »
   Looking to add a 5650-TD to our current stack of 5510/20 so that we can use the 10GB xfp between two buildings, But I'm not sure if stacking between these is possible with FW-6.6.x even when set to operate as a hybrid

The stack as is has the 5520-PoE as the base and has 3 additional 5510 in the stack, so looking at removing one of the 5510 then make the 5650 the base, need to leave the 5520 in as its providing power to some AP's

any advice greatfully received

It's been a little while since I used a hybrid stack, but I recall they had to be running the same firmware version across all the switches.  The last version that supported the 5510/5520/5530's and 5600's was v6.3.6.  So I don't think this is going to work for you.  If you need 10Gig ports, you may have to look for a 5530 that has the two XFP ports on it.

Hi, as well the 56xx needs to be the Base-Unit (BU).

I would not recommend that design, as well you will limit the "Stacking-Power" to the level of the 55xx.

My experience with hybrid stack, going back to ES450 stacked with BPS2000, is that it's a solution best left alone. Stack 5500s with 5500s and 5600s with 5600s. 5510 has limits on a number of features compared to the 5520/5530, I have some traumatic memories of mixing even these two siblings in a stack!
