MULTILINK ETHERNET COMMUNICATIONS SWITCH – QUICKSTART GUIDE 49
9.2 Configuring the Multilink switch for Ring Only Mode
This feature can be only be used when the switches are connected to form a single ring
topology which means that only two ports per switch are used to form the ring and all
other ports will not be part of another ring. Note that RSTP and Ring-only mode support a
maximum of 80 switches. RO mode has typical recovery time of ≤ 5 ms/hop.
Z Determine which ports on each switch will be used to create the ring.
In this example it has been determined that the port named C5 will
be one of the ports forming the ring.
Z Click on the port C5 to open the main port configuration screen.
