Hi,

We have two switches:
1. X450a
2. X460-G2

We managed to connect the two switches through a 1GE trunk. However, I am looking for a solution with higher bandwidth.

What options do you recommend?

Could I use this part for the 10G ports:

- 10304 10GBASE-CR SFP+ 1m 10GBASE-CR SFP+ pre-terminated twin-ax copper cable with link lengths of 1m.

Could I use these and do stacking:

- 16713 Summit X460-G2 VIM-2ss
- 16106 Stacking Cable, 0.5M

Thanks, Balázs

Hi,

you'll not be able to stack them together, as x450a supports max EXOS 15.3 while x460G2 requires 15.6 min.

You can check this here: http://documentation.extremenetworks.com/hw_sw_compatibility/HardwareSoftwareCompatibility/r_summit-...

However, you can interconnect them at 10G, if you have the 10G VIM on the x450a.

you can create link aggregation of more 1G links together also = no need for VIM...
Thanks for the comments and help!
