ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 stack configuration overview
The following table provides an overview of ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 stacking capabilities.
|Stacking capability||ICX 6430 and ICX 6450||Additional information|
|Topologies supported||Ring and linear
NOTEICX 6450 devices can also be installed in a mixed stack.
|Refer to ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 stack topologies. For information on installing the ICX 6450 in a mixed stack, refer to Mixed Stacking.|
|Maximum stack size||
4 ICX 6430 units
8 ICX 6450 units
|Traditional stacking only. Any combination of ICX 7450 devices may be stacked.|
|Maximum stacking distance||100 meters||Refer to Extended distance stacking for more information on available media.|
4 ports on front panel (Ports 1, 2, 3, and 4)
Ports 2 and 4 require additional configuration.
|Refer to ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 stack topologies and Connecting ICX 6450 or ICX 6430 devices in a traditional stack.|
|Default ports||Ports 1 and 3||
Default ports cannot be changed. Use the stack-port command to select a single default port.
Stacking ports can be used as data uplink ports if stacking is not enabled.
|Stacking ports can be used as data ports, but not vice versa. Refer to Connecting ICX 6450 or ICX 6430 devices in a traditional stack.|
|Trunking||Supported; must be configured.||Refer to Configuring an ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 traditional stack.|
|Hitless switchover and hitless failover||Supported||Refer to Hitless stacking.|
|License requirements||None required for default stacking ports||For the ICX 6450, an ICX6450-2X10G-LIC-POD license is required to enable ports 2 and 4 in 10-Gbps port speed. Refer to the FastIron Ethernet Switch Software Licensing Guide for more information.|
|Configuration options||Manual and automatic, including Secure-setup||Refer to Traditional stack construction methods.|
|Access methods||TFTP, SCP||Software images, boot images, and signatures can be downloaded to a stack using TFTP and SCP applications. Refer to the FastIron Ethernet Switch Software Upgrade Guide for more information.|
|Traditional stacking CLI||All traditional stacking CLI is supported.||Refer to Traditional stack CLI commands .|
