Huawei Lan Switch: How to Install and Configure?

Before installing lan switches on a workbench, ensure that:

Procedure

Lan Switch Configuration Rules

If the work mode of the network interface of the eSpace U2980 is different from the work mode of the connected lan switching network interface, problems such as packet loss and disconnection may occur, which may affect proper running of the device and bring potential security risks. To ensure the stable operation of on-line devices and avoid risks, configure the work mode of the eSpace U2980 network interface and the connected switch lan port based on the specifications specified in this topic.

Onsite engineers must install lan switches based on the requirements in the following table before installing software.

Table 1 Work modes of eSpace U2980 network interfaces
Local Device Board Port Work Mode Local Port Work Mode Peer Device Peer Port Work Mode
MGC/MRP GPU Auto 1000 Mbit/s Full Duplex LAN Switch Auto/1000 Mbit/s Full Duplex
MSU Auto 1000 Mbit/s Full Duplex LAN Switch Auto/1000 Mbit/s Full Duplex
OMU Auto 1000M Auto Duplex LAN Switch Auto/1000M Auto Duplex
FS - Auto 1000M Auto Duplex LAN Switch Auto/1000M Auto Duplex
CTI - Auto 1000M Auto Duplex LAN Switch Auto/1000M Auto Duplex

Cascading network interfaces must be aggregated to ensure smooth communication between two lan switches and sufficient bandwidth for communication planes in the case of large-scale networking and improve network reliability. Generally, you are advised to aggregate four network interfaces.
