Protocol interoperability

This section covers the protocol interoperability settings for ThinkAgile CP and the customer network.

The following protocol configuration options must be implemented on both the ThinkAgile CP stack and the customer network to ensure the interoperability between the two.

Table 1. Protocol interoperability


Protocol options

Spanning Tree Protocol

None (Default), PVST+, MSTP, or RSTP

Link Aggregation Protocol


Routing Protocol

Static or BGP


It is important to determine whether the customer edge switch supports MLAG (multi-enclosure link aggregation) because this may allow for better redundancy by connecting ThinkAgile CP to two customer edge switches.
