You would get the 3 stack connection topology.


By connecting in full rebundancy, you would get 40 Gbps bandwidth per member in 2960-X stack.


Thanks,

Hi all,


Ok so why not always go ...

     Switch 1 port 2 to Switch 2 port 1

     Switch 2 port 2 to Switch 3 port 1

                    ..

                    ..

     Last switch port 1 to Switch 1 port 1


It looks like depending on number of switches in stack there is a different pattern? Just askign as I am looking to going to a 2960X stack from a Distribution / Access configuration.
