This topic is a chance to discuss more about the implementation and troubleshooting of Virtual Switching system (VSS) on Cisco Catalyst Switches, particularly on 4500, 6500 and 6800
Virtual Switching System (VSS) is network system virtualization technology that pools multiple Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches into one virtual switch, increasing operational efficiency, boosting nonstop communications, and scaling system bandwidth capacity to 1.4 Tbps. At the initial phase, a VSS will allow two physical Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches to operate as a single logical virtual switch called a virtual switching system 144. 


This session provides an opportunity to learn and ask questions about how to implement, configure and troubleshoot VSS in Cisco Catalyst Switches.


Ask questions from Monday 11th to Friday 29th of June, 2018
