Cisco Catalyst 6500 Instant Access Solution - Design and Migration Case Studies
The Cisco Catalyst Instant Access Solution simplifies campus or large branch network deployment and operations. IT staff can deploy access switches instantly through a single touch point with feature and configuration consistency. With Instant Access, Cisco Catalyst 6800ia access switches are connected to Cisco Catalyst 6500 or 6800 Series core switches. The entire configuration works as a single extended switch with a single management domain. This session will begin with an overview of the Cisco Instant Access deployment model followed by an examination of actual customer deployments. Also included will be a review of recent proof of concept testing where multiple failure and scalability test cases were performed. Attendees can expect to learn about the specific requirements for deploying an Instant Access topology as well as the expected behaviors related convergence and scalability.
