Dear Cisco Users.
I'm working with a professional audio product that uses a 3rd party audio transport protocol called CobraNet (http://www.cobranet.info/en/support/cobranet/) of which is transmitted on standard ethernet hardware. CobraNet is based at the MAC address layer and therefore does not have an IP address within the packet header to define source and destination location, instead it uses the MAC address. Because of this CobraNet requires a Layer 2 switch rather than a Layer 3 device to forward packets between nodes within a LAN.
I'm working on a project that is specified with the Cisco 3750 range and after reading the spec sheet it states multi-layer rather than a specific layer. My question is thisâ¦.. Will the 3750 switch support / forward CobraNet packets in its default configuration, will it have to be configured (and of so how) or do I need to request a different Cisco range to be used?
Thank you in advance for any comments and suggestions.
NB: - Please note; I'm not an ethernet guru so simple wording is preferred.
