Installing the Switch
Sample Network Topologies
N o t e
In the Backbone Switch illustration, the 1000 Mbps fiber-optic connection
between the Switch 3400cl-24G and the Switch 5304xl is by way of a Gigabit-
SX mini-GBIC installed in the Switch 3400cl-24G and connected to a Gigabit-
SX Module in the Switch 5304xl.
Stacking the Switch
The Series 3400cl Switch devices can be connected together, through standard
network connections, and managed through a single IP address. Up to 16
switches can be connected together in such a "virtual stack".
You identify the switch as the "Commander" and give that switch an IP address.
Up to 15 other switches in the network can then easily be configured as
Members of the stack and managed through the Commander's IP address. The
management includes Telnet access and web browser interface access to the
Commander and to each Member switch through the Commander.
For more information on stacking Switches, please see the Management and
Configuration Guide, which is on the Documentation CD-ROM that came
with the switch.
