We have 2 Nortel Passport 8600 as our redundant core. All edge switches (also Nortel) are connected using Split Multi-link Trunking (SMLT) with one Gigabit connection to each switch.
We would like to put dual Cisco switches in one area. We would like to link each Cisco switch with both Nortel switches. We are looking to have traffic go over both links simultaneously. What model of Cisco switch should we buy? Does Cisco support SMLT? If not, is there any way to configure these 2 pair of switches to work together redundantly?
That makes me feel a little better. I have not seen anyone come straight out and say they have done it. I have only seen whispers and specualtion on this in various forums.
I am caught in a Catch-22. I don't have a cisco switch to verify that we can make this work. But I don't want to buy a cisco switch until I know that it will work with the Nortels the way I want it to.
