Hello all ,
We have current setup of extreme access switches connected to Extreme Core Switch and we are planning to replace the current setup of extreme access switches only to Aruba access switches .
I would like to know will there be any communication or configuration issue between extreme core and aruba access switches.
In general, mixing different brand equipment should work. Things you may run into are SFP/Optics where many brands prefer and support only their own or a list of supported modules. Also, some vendors use proprietary protocols for example for redundancy or VLAN distribution. If you don't use those protocols or stick to the standards-based protocols supported on both sides you should be fine. I've not run into issues connecting access switches to other brand core.
At Aruba, we believe that the most dynamic customer experiences happen at the Edge. Our mission is to deliver innovative solutions that harness data at the Edge to drive powerful business outcomes.
