20gbit Port-channels using sfp+ ports

Hi,

I am hoping to implement a cost affective solution that can utilise the uplinks ports on the 2960-X & XR series switch and the appropriate up/downlink modules for the 3750-X series switch

Would anyone know if it is possible to bundle the 10gbit sfp+ ports into a 20gbit port-channel?

Has anyone done this or could they point me in the right direction for documentation?

Thanks

Hi,

Yes, you can bundle multiple 10Gig ports on all these devices as long as you have the proper modules.  The 2960-X supports up to 24 Etherchannels and the XR supports up to 48.

If you are uplnking the 2960 series to 3750-X, you need a 10Gig module for the 3750-X series.

Assuming your 2960x series has SFP+ ports then you should be able to do that.

You would need a C3KX-NM-10G for the 3750x.

BTW, don't forget, you only have two 10g ports per 3750X.

Thanks for clarifying that everyone

I am looking to aggregate x4 20gbit port-channels (8 links) into x4 3750-x with the appropriate modules

Thanks again

Sure you can.  Whether or not your switch can fully push 20 Gbps is another question.
