Stackwise vs. Stackwise Plus

Real world pros and cons anyone? Is the bandwidth saved w/ destination stripping worthy?

Re: Stackwise vs. Stackwise Plus

Main Difference are

1. For unicast packets, StackWise Plus supports destination striping, unlike StackWise support of source stripping

2. StackWise Plus can locally switch. StackWise cannot. Furthermore, in StackWise, since there is no local switching and since there is source stripping, even locally destined packets must traverse the entire stack ring.

CONS:  Stackwise Plus maximum stacking limit is 4 switches.

Re: Stackwise vs. Stackwise Plus

the limit of 4 switches in a stack your referring to is StackPower and not

StackWise Plus. Stackwise Plus, like Stackwise supports up to 9 switches in a stack
