I am studying a lot about Cisco’s designs and need to refresh my knowledge daily, especially with Datacenter Technologies and Edge Connections. I find it quite hard to keep up with all hardware and Technology Cisco offers. At the Moment ACI is a real time taker for me. But my question is about Campus Design and i hope to get a complete understanding someday:
For MY preferred Campus Design i am thinking a lot about Routed Access, but i have still Problems in understanding the principles when having a Routed Access:
- It is an SVI on the Access Switch and a “no switchport” Uplink??
- How does it integrate then with VSS/Stackwise Virtual on the Distribution Layer as I cant have routed Uplink with Multichassis EtherChannel??
Or is it an SVI in the Access Layer, then a MEC trunk to VSS(or StackWise Virtual or VPC) Distribution Layer an then a Routing process between the SVI’s??
I hope we can start a mind opening discussion.
