Cabling the Hardware for the Centralized Deployment

 

This section describes how to connect cables among the network devices and servers in the Contrail Cloud implementation. See Architecture of the Contrail Cloud Implementation in the Centralized Deployment for more information.

To cable the hardware:

  1. Connect cables from the EX Series switch to the other devices in the network.

    See Table 1 for information about the connections for the EX Series switch.

  2. Connect cables from the QFX Series switch to the other devices in the network.

    See Table 2 for information about the connections for the QFX Series switch.

  3. Connect cables from the MX Series router to the other devices in the network.

    See Table 3 for information about the connections for the MX Series router.
