The VTRX 1GbE Switch Module is a layer 2 switch that supports speeds up to 10 Gbps. Both the switch GUI and CLI provide access for configuring the switch. The OOB management IP must be on a different IP subnet than those defined on all other switch interfaces (port, VLAN). Blade servers are connected to internal (te 1/1 – te 4/4) ports. The internal ports communicate together allowing for east-west traffic. The external ports allow for north-south communication to any upstream devices on the network as if the ports were typical switching/bridging device.
