Re: How many 3650 can i connect together

There is a document on Cisco's website that suggests not having a network "diameter" of more than 7, or 7 switches diasy chained, because of Spanning-Tree. However, I am hard pressed to think why you would even want to do that.

Re: How many 3650 can i connect together

Hello,

If you want to cluster, you can have 16 switches... refer to the URL below

If you want to do non-cluster with daisy chain, it is 9 switches.. refer to the URL below

Hope this helps.. let us know if you need anything else... rate replies if found useful..
