Adds a EX3524 switch to the network

The EX3524 series switch is a Gigabit Ethernet layer 2 switch with either 24 or 48 10/100/1000-BASE-T ports, and four SFP transceiver slots for fiber connectivity.

To enable layer 3 adoption of the logged EX3524 switch to a NOC controller, navigate to the switch‘s device configuration mode and execute the following command: controller > host > <IP/HOSTANME>.

EX3524 devices are layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switches with either 24 or 48 10/100/1000-BASE-T ports, and four SFP transceiver slots for fiber connectivity. Each 10/100/1000 Mbps port supports both the IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at-2009 PoE standards. An EX3524 switch has an SNMP-based management agent that provides both in-band and out-of-band management access. The EX3524 switch utilizes an embedded HTTP Web agent and CLI, which in spite of being different from that of the EX3524 operating system provides EX3524 controllers PoE and port management resources.

Going forward NX7500, NX9500, and NX9600 series service platforms and WiNG VMs can discover, adopt, and partially manage EX3524 series Ethernet switches without modifying the proprietary operating system running the EX3524 switches. The WiNG service platforms utilize standardized WiNG interfaces to push configuration files to the EX3524 switches, and maintain a translation layer, understood by the EX3524 switch, for statistics retrieval.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Service Platforms — NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000
