How do you build out a network infrastructure that allows your to grow and cover multiple campuses all with chassis-like integration of management and routing? One answer is WideBand Virtual Chassis. By building a “Virtual Chassis” out of independent switches, it is possible to locate each element of the chassis at the best location to take advantage of existing cabling and infrastructure.
For example, in a network separated into two buildings, it is possible to put part of the chassis in one building and the rest in the other, without disturbing performance. This feat is accomplished using unique features of scalability built into WideBand Professional Switches along with the management functions of the WideBand Network Management Unit (nMU). Since every switch can be connected as part of the Virtual Chassis, the service life is extended and there is a model for incremental expansion.
