An SMLT/SLT is Avaya’s proprietary equivalent to Cisco’s Virtual PortChannel feature. When do you use one over the other, SMLT or SLT?. It was recently pointed out to me that I had never written a post documenting how to configure SMLT to a edge/closet switch. While there are. Multi-link trunking (MLT) is a link aggregation port trunking technology developed at Nortel in . SMLT is supported within the following Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch (ERS) and Virtual Services Platform (VSP) Product Families: ERS

Hi, you are correct. Accept cookies Cookie settings. VLACP parameters must be configured the same on both ends of the link to achieve connectivity. Hi, Can you explain to me how the avaya routing xmlt works when you have 2 x switches in a stack using SMLT connected to 2 x ERS using 4 x 10gbps fibre connections.

Using this technology allows or enables the use of several links from 2 up to 8 and combined them to create increased bandwidth and several fail-over paths.

MultiLink Trunking MLT is a point-to-point connection that aggregates multiple ports to logically act like a single port, with the aggregated bandwidth.

You can check out the article for information on algorithms and their working. SLT is best suited for large-scale deployments of edge switches from a single switch cluster.

Next create the MLT at the edge: Your email address will not be published. Here is avaay diagram of the topology for this implementation: ERS config -if vlacp port 1,2,3,4 timeout short. Already have an account? Distributed multi-link trunking DMLT or distributed MLT is a proprietary computer networking protocol designed by Nortel Networksand now owned by extreme networks[7] used to load balance the network traffic across connections and xmlt across multiple switches or modules in a chassis.

What is a MLT, DMLT, SMLT, SLT or IST?

BPDU Filtering will help to keep avvaya that could be connected to the network from causing root bridge re-elections and topology flapping. ERS config interface FastEthernet all. Some say no user traffic is sent across IST, but then how would you get redundant connectivity.

If you need LACP, just add that keyword at the end. By ensuring all devices have SMLT connections to the aggregation switches, traffic never needs to traverse the IST and the total forwarding capacity of the switches in the cluster is also aggregated.
