Figure 2-15. Edge Switch Configuration
When your network expands and the users need to access resources beyond
the edge of the local network, the 5400zl switches are excellent platforms for
that expansion. With the flexibility of 6 slots, the high port count 10/100/1000-
T zl Modules for local connections, and the availability of Gigabit speeds on
both copper and fiber cables, the 5400zl switches can provide that access
beyond the edge for a high number of network users.
In the above illustration, two 5406zl switches are connected to an HP ProCurve
Routing Switch 9308, which can serve as a campus backbone or core switch.
The 1000 Mbps fiber-optic connections between the two 5406zl switches and
the Routing Switch 9308 is by way of Gigabit-LX mini-GBICs installed in
the mini-GBIC port on the 20 port Gig-T plus 4 mini-GBIC zl Module in the
5406zl switches and Gigabit-LX ports on the Routing Switch 9308. With the
Gigabit-LX connections, the distance between the 5406zl switches and the
Routing Switch 9308 can be up to ten kilometers.
The connections are trunked, through a configuration change on the 5406zl
switch, to provide redundancy and load sharing for higher bandwidth.
