Hello Raijv,

the question is to find out if you need to use different types of cards for MGX switch to MGX switch links.

the following link points to MGX configuration guide:

hi Giuseppe,

thanks for the docs.

Actually, what i need is the configurations. I want to connect MPSM in MGX1 to MPSM in MGX2. also the configurations for connecting VISM to VISM.

1. MPSM(MGX1) <--> MPSM(MGX2)

2. VISM(MGX1) <--> VISM(MGX2)

Hello Rajiv,

I wish I could help you on this.

I had only limited exposure to BPX and MGX several years ago.

The command line interface is quite different from IOS.

Follow the configuration guide at the link I've provided.

Hope to help
