Virtual Chassis Cabling Configuration Examples for EX3300 Switches

You can install EX3300 switches on a single rack or in multiple racks, or in different wiring closets, and interconnect them to form a Virtual Chassis.

You form an EX3300 Virtual Chassis by connecting uplink port connections as Virtual Chassis ports (VCPs). Ports 2 and 3 are configured as VCPs on all uplink modules by default.

The physical location of the switches in a Virtual Chassis is restricted only by the maximum length supported for cables to connect the VCPs—in this case, the maximum length of the uplink module cables. The maximum cable length for the uplink module cables supported by an EX3300 switch is 6.2 miles (10 km).

The following illustrations show various Virtual Chassis cabling configuration examples.

Note: For increased availability and redundancy, we recommend that you always configure your Virtual Chassis in a ring topology.

Figure 17, Figure 18, and Figure 19 show six EX3300 switches stacked vertically in a rack and interconnected in a ring topology.
