Stacking Switches

What is Stackable switch?
A stackable switch is a network switch with a “stacking” function and is a network device. The so-called stacking uses a dedicated connecting cable to connect two or more switches through the stacking port of the switch to realize the expansion of the number of ports of a single switch.
When multiple switches are stacked together, they act like a modular switch and can be managed as a single unit. That is, all switches in the stack can be logically viewed as a single switch. In general, at least one switchable switch should be in the stack of switches, and the switchable switches can be used to manage other switches that are stacked together. Stackable switches are very convenient for network expansion and are ideal for new networks.
The Direct Attached Cable (DAC) are mainly used to transmit data over 10G, 40G, 100G ports and over by connecting networks switches to switches, routers or servers. For Some of these equipment, DACs can also be used as stacking cables offering this way simple and very cost-effective stacking solution. DACs cooling requirements are not strict due to their thermal design which lowers power consumption and decreases data center operating expenses.
Why Stacking?
Stacking allows users to expand their network capacity without the hassle of managing multiple devices.
Stackable switches can be added or removed from a stack as needed without affecting the overall performance of the stack. Depending on its topology, a stack can continue to transfer data even if a link or unit within the stack fails. This makes stacking an effective, flexible, and scalable solution to expand network capacity.
The stacking of these switches also allows for easier and more concise device management, managing them all from one terminal session instead of many. It also helps to mitigate configuration drift between the switches.
