Hi Herbert.


No. The Catalyst 2960-X does not have the ASIC capability to support VXLAN encapsulation.


Please refer to the following documentation for supported platforms:

Hi Wargo,

There is DNA Licensing for 2960x like C2960X-DNA-E-24=. What is the use of this licensing?

Cisco DNA (via DNA Center) covers more than just SD-Access (Fabric).

DNA covers everything in the Enterprise Network, divided into Automation & Assurance, for both basic / essential (non-Fabric) and advanced / advantage (SD-Access) design and management.

Similarly, there are 2 basic DNA license levels: Essentials & Advantage.

Currently, the C2960X only supports the DNA Essentials license (C2960X-DNA-E-24).

The DNA Essentials license supports a lot of (basic, non-Fabric) Automation & Assurance capabilities.

Here is just a short list:

  • DNA Subscription Model
    • Software Management
    • License Management
  • DNA Center Support
    • Inventory & Topology Management
    • Plug-and-Play (PNP) Device Onboarding
    • EasyQoS Management
    • Base LAN Automation (non-Fabric)
    • Analytics & Assurance (non-Fabric)
  • Full Layer 2 and Routed Access (LAN Base +)
    • RIP, OSPF stub routing
    • PIM stub multicast

You can read more about the DNA Essentials & Advantage licenses here:

https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/products/collateral/software/one-data-center/dan-switching-licen.pdf

We are in the process of updating the C2960-X datasheet, to include all of the DNA Essentials details.

Hi Shawn,

I'd like to know the C4500X ( Brownfield Mode) with SD-access support,

Since I can not find out the support capability in the following documentation.

[SD-Access Ordering guide]

[SD-Access CVD Design guide]

[SD-Access CVD deploy Guide].

[SD-Access 1.2.x Hardware and Software Compatibility Matrix]

 only [C4500E with SUP8 & 9 ] was in the support matrix.

 

BUT in the CCW , I can find the SKU for C4500X ,  [C4500X-DNA-L-A/C4500X-DNA-L-A-3Y]

 

Thanks

Morgan
