  • 1.  VCP ports

    Posted 04-04-2022 05:41
    Hello,
    I need to assure that we can use the uplinks ports in 10 G speed in EX 3400 for example to run as VCP, instead of the preconfigured one.
    In this case we will use DAC 10 G, does any one try this before ..

    The 10G sfp ports are supported for VCP operation.  The obvious limitation is the lower amount of traffic that can be supported by the link.

    By default, the QFSP+ uplink ports on EX3400 switches are configured as VCPs, or you can configure any SFP+ uplink module ports on EX3400 switches as VCPs. You can't use uplink ports with SFP tranceivers as VCPs to connect EX3400 switches into a Virtual Chassis.
