VIM-2q Port Option Card

The VIM-2q Ethernet Module option card allows you to add one or two 40 gigabit QSFP+ optical ports to the VIM (Versatile Interface Module) slot on the rear panel of a Summit X460-G2 series switch. The VIM-2q option card supports QSFP+ optical modules.

The ports on the VIM-2q option card can be configured as high speed stacking ports in a SummitStack configuration with a stack link speed of 40G. For more information about stacking Summit switches, see Building Stacks.
