Hi Sundar, to add to Endless, these ports do not have any specific or special role. You can use them in the same capacity as any other port.

I think what Endless is saying, on the 10/100 switches those are still gig-e ports which can be used as a more efficient uplink port than the 10/100 ports. I also think the same on the gig-e switches since it is easier for labeling.

Hi Sunder

These ports are Gigabyte ports (1Gb traffic) and the other's are 100 MB.

In my case I use them to link between two switches and to link Servers that use lot of trafic

Good luck
