Hello,

We are planning the hardware for an Extreme fabric topology and were wondering whether the BEB switches
require IS-IS.
If they do would it make sense to purchase an X450-G2 and upgrade from Edge - Advanced - Core or
purchase a X460-G2 and upgrade from Advanced - Core?

Thanks, Klaus

Hi Klaus,

First of all, no SPB on EXOS. Only VSP/ERS. EXOS supports Fabric Attach which is a sub-feature that automates VSN provisioning in an SPB "cloud".

Hope that helps,
Tomasz
