I thought it would be useful to do a few posts once in a while, with more of a campus focus. With any design workshop,
VLT Re-visited – Design & Configuration with Peer Routing | Dell EMC Networking
Some of the content i had committed during the early days of the blog, specifically on VLT – continues to receive a lot of traffic/queries.
Leaf & Spine: L3 Vs. L2 (VLT)
A short & sharp comparison of Layer 3/ECMP Leaf & Spine vs. Layer 2 Multi-chassis Link Aggregation, e.g. Dell EMC VLT (Virtual Link Trunking) Topologies.
Leaf & Spine Vs. Spline (+ Dell EMC Networking S6100-ON)
In essence, Spline collapses the Leaf & Spine functions – much like the Functions of Core & Aggregation Layers in a traditional 3-tier topology, would
