Dual direct link topology

This section covers details about the dual direct link topology.

Based on the dual direct link topology and the uplink bandwidth option (10 Gbps or 40 Gbps) for the customer data center connection, use the following port connectivity diagram:

Figure 1. Customer data center connection: dual direct link


Diagrams of port connectivity for customer data center connection, dual direct link
Note:

The following table provides the ports from the interconnect switch which need to be connected to the customer data center network.

Uplink bandwidth option

Device

Network interconnect ports

10 Gbps data center network

Primary device

Interconnect, Mgmt port

Interconnect, port 48

Secondary device

Interconnec,t port 46

40 Gbps data center network

Primary device

Interconnect, Mgmt port

Interconnect, port 54

Secondary device

Interconnect, port 53

Note:

Choose either the 10 Gbps or the 40 Gbps option.

Table 1. Dual direct link topology specifications

Configuration

Redundant single physical trunk ports

OOB Interconnect Network

One access port for the interconnect switch connected to the management switch or VLAN

Requirements

STP required

Note:

The uplink VLAN must be different than the OOB management VLAN.
