    Hi.

     

    If a collapse the core and distribution layers of a 3-tier Clos switching architecture, I am left with a 2-tier switching architecture.

    1. Is this still considered a Clos architecture?
    2. How is this different from a spine-and-leaf architecture?

     

    Thanks,

    Deepak
