Huawei ES5D00ETPC00 Stack Rear Card.
Intelligent Stack (iStack) technology enables multiple stacking-capable devices to function as a logical device.
Before a stack is set up, each switch is an independent entity that has its own IP address and MAC address. You need to manage the switches separately. After a stack is set up, switches in the stack form a logical entity that can be managed and maintained using a single IP address. Stack technology improves forwarding performance and network reliability, and simplifies network management.
Switches can be connected as a stack using service ports or stack cards (ES5D00ETPC00).
The ES5D00ETPC00 stack card can be installed in a rear card slot of the switch models listed in Table 8-189.
|Basic function||Provides two 12 Gbit/s electrical ports for stacking. The 12 Gbit/s electrical ports on multiple switches are connected using PCIe cables to set up a stack.|
|Topology||Switches in a stack can be connected in a chain or ring topology. A link failure in the chain topology causes the stack to split. In contrast, the ring topology changes into a chain topology upon a link failure so that services in the stack are not affected. Therefore, the ring topology is more reliable than the chain topology.
When connecting stack cables, connect stack1 port of one switch to stack2 port of another switch.
Ports on the ES5D00ETPC00
|1. Two stack electrical ports|
Stack electrical port
The ES5D00ETPC00 provides two 12 Gbit/s electrical ports for stacking. The two 12 Gbit/s electrical ports must be used with PCIe Cables. Table 8-191 describes attributes of the 12 Gbit/s electrical port.
