    Hi everyone,

    I  got the basisc down on Virtual chassis technology on EX switches.  I am trying to understand Virtual chassis fabric technology  why one wants to use Virtual Chassis Fabric instead of Virtual chassis technology?  I know it is  a very loaded question .

    Virtual chassis can suport 10 switches while Virtual chassis fabric can support 20.  It appears to me, we use Fabric technologfy where more ports, throughput is needed .  Is that it ?

     

    Thanks and have a nice weekend!!

    Essentially, VCF is tuned for east-west traffic while VC is better suited for north-south user traffic.
