Interface Types

Interface Types

Switch interfaces are used to exchange data. Physical interfaces (excluding management interfaces) transmit services. Interfaces are classified into physical interfaces, and logical interfaces.

  • Physical interfaces

    Physical interfaces exist on interface cards and transmit service data. Physical interfaces are classified into the following types:

    • LAN-side interface: used by the switch to exchange data with network devices on LANs.
    • Management interface: Management interfaces are used to log in to switches for configuration and management purposes.
    • USB interface: is a data transmission interface. You can perform USB-based deployment on a switch through this interface.
    • Mini USB interface: is a data transmission interface. You can perform basic configuration and management on a switch through this interface.
    • Monitoring Interface: Monitoring interfaces are used to monitor a switch's components, including the cabinet door, power supply, and backup power supply.
    Table 1-1 describes the physical interfaces that the switch supports.
    Table 1-1  Description of LAN-side interfaces
    Interface Description
    GE interface A LAN-side GE interface works at the data link layer, provides a maximum transmission rate of 1000 Mbit/s, processes Layer 2 protocol packets, and implements Layer 2 forwarding.
    10GE interface A LAN-side 10GE interface works at the data link layer, provides a maximum transmission rate of 10 Gbit/s, processes Layer 2 protocol packets, and implements Layer 2 forwarding.
    Table 1-2 describes the management interfaces that the switch supports.

    Interface

    Description

    Application

    Console interface

    A data connection equipment (DCE) interface that complies with the EIA/TIA-232 standard.

    The console interface is connected to the COM serial interface of a configuration terminal to set up an on-site configuration environment.

  • Logical interfaces

    Logical interfaces do not physically exist. They are manually configured and can be used to exchange data and transmit service data.

    Table 1-3 describes the logical interfaces that the switch supports.
    Table 1-3  Description of logical interfaces
    Interface Description
    Eth-Trunk An Eth-Trunk has Layer 2 features and is formed by binding multiple Ethernet interfaces to provide more bandwidth and higher transmission reliability.
    VLANIF interface A VLANIF interface has Layer 3 features and enables VLANs to communicate after being assigned an IP address.
    Loopback interface

    A loopback interface is always Up and can be configured with a 32-bit subnet mask.

    NULL interface A null interface is used to filter routes because any data packets received by the null interface are discarded.
NOTE:

Physical interfaces are sometimes called ports. This document uses the term interface.
