Virtual Technologies Configuration Guide

Describes the Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) technology and the IRF 3.1 technology, which provide data center class availability and scalability.

IRF creates a fabric from multiple switches. The switches that form the IRF fabric work in 1:N redundancy and appear as one unit in the network. IRF improves management efficiency and streamlines network topologies. It is suitable for highly reliable enterprise networks and data centers.

IRF 3.1 integrates multiple lower-layer devices with a higher-layer IRF fabric to provide high-density, low-cost connectivity at the access layer. In an IRF 3.1 system, the higher-layer IRF fabric is called the parent fabric and the lower-layer devices are called bridge port extenders (PEXs). You manage and configure the PEXs from the parent fabric as if they were interface modules on the parent fabric.
