Stacking Avaya ERS 3500 using Rear-Ports

Task

Create the stack of two Avaya ERS 3500 switches using Rear Ports.


Scenario

There is a Avaya ERS 3524GT switch working as Stand-Alone device. The customer need to connect the 2nd switch with 24 PoE ports and use both devices as single stack. The existing switch will be MASTER (BASE) unit in new scenario and the new 3524GT-PWR+ just the SLAVE (NON-BASE) unit. For stacking I will use the HP Direct Attach 1m J9281B cables (x2). I tried it with Avaya 10GBaseCX SFP+ 3.0M Active AA1403019-E6 cables (x2), too. It works with both types without any problems.

L3VSN Multicast over SPBM on VSP 7200

Task

Configure the L3VSN Multicast over SPBM on VSP 7200 between 2 different networks.


Scenario

There are 2 networks IPTV Sender and IPTV Receiver. The Avaya ERS 8606 is a Core Switch and makes Inter-VLAN-Routing between both networks and it is a default gateway for all hosts. Core Switch use the VIP over VRRP, works as BCB with NNI ports in SPBM and as SMLT Cluster with UNI ports in Legacy Network. The Avaya VSP 7200 switches work in Distribution Layer as BEB with NNI ports in SPBM and as SMLT Cluster with UNI ports in Legacy Network. The VSP 7200 need to receive the multicast signal from IPTV Sender network and send it to joined Multicast Clients (IPTV Boxes) over SPBM. SPBM is already configured on all switches and it’s functional. For IPTV will be used the new VRF named “IPTV”. It will be configured only on Avaya VSP 7200, because the Core Switch uses it already.
