Stack Overview

Stack Overview

This section describes the definition of a stack and purpose of setting up a stack.


Intelligent stack (iStack) technology combines multiple switches into a virtual switching device, as shown in Figure 2-1.

Stacking technology provides high network reliability and scalability, while simplifying network management.

  • High reliability: Member switches in a stack work in redundancy mode. Inter-device Eth-Trunk links can also be set up between the member switches to implement link redundancy.

  • High scalability: By combining physical switches into a stack, you can easily increase the number of ports, bandwidth, and processing capability without changing the network topology.

  • Simple configuration and management: You can log in to a stack from any member switch to manage and configure all the member switches in the stack. In addition, complicated Layer 2 ring protection protocols (such as MSTP) or Layer 3 protection switching protocols (such as VRRP) are not required after switches set up a stack; therefore, the network configuration is much simpler.
