MLXe line cards


Is it possible to mix line cards with different FIB size on a single chassis?

For example will BR-MLX-10GX4-X and BR-MLX-10GX4-X-ML be a normal combination, how the FIB will be handled on line cards?

Is it true, that the line card with a smallest FIB will limit the whole chassis to that very FIB size?


Kind regards,

Re: MLXe line cards

Yes, you can mix those on a single chassis. When you mix a X-ML with X line card, the chassis's scalability will be limited to X-ML's number.
