In the ip telephony design guide it states to be careful when daisy chaining switches at the access layer.
The reason given is that if using Gigastack connections, they can be half duplex.
Please forgive my lack of knowledge here but what is the reason for using gigastack connectors over standard gbics. Is it just a cost consideration?
Also if you just you std copper trunk uplinks that would be fine wouldn't it (obviously depending on switch model)?
the only stumbling block to daisy chaining switches that I can see, is the
amount of switches you need to go through to get to the dist/colapsed core and the aggregated amount of traffic that the switch has to process.
