In the Extended Edge Switching architecture, Layer-2, Layer-3, multicast, and filtering operations take place on the controlling bridge. The controlling bridge switch and attached BPEs constitute a single, extended switch system. Therefore, the Extended Edge Switching system assumes the scale and limits from the specific controlling bridge model in use. For applicable limits, see the Limits tables in the ExtremeXOS Release Notes.
NoteThe V300-8P-2T-W model must be directly attached to the controlling bridge (1 tier only).
