MLT Configuration
« on: August 30, 2013, 03:51:36 AM »
Hi all,

I have a lab here need high bandwidth for uplink ports.
The passport 8606 (sw 7.1.5.0) acting as L3 and baystack 5520 (sw 6.3.1) using for access devices and traffic boxes.
Both PP 8606 and baystack running default standard license.
2 or more 1Gbps ports from 8606 will be connect directly to baystack 5520. I want to use MLT to increase bandwidth for uplink.

Is it the best and simple solution here? Feel free to suggest any better solution. I'm new and not an expert  :).

Regarding the configuration, I've found some config on baystack 5520 here http://blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/2007/10/nortel-ers-5520-pwr-switch/, but not on passport 8606.

Do you have any sample configuration or which NTP should I read?
Are there any limitation or special configuration should be applied?
Do I need to disable MLT link before add or remove VLAN tagging on this MLT link?

Thank you all for your great support.

1. That guys blog is pretty good reading in and of itself...

2. There are no special limitations with MLT

3. As long as you already have the ports configured at TagAll (Trunk) then you can add and remove VLANs without issue.

Good Luck!
