Question about MDI/MDIX

L0 Member

Hello everyone,

 

I'm looking into the documentation of Prisma SD-WAN trying to confirm if ION devices can work with any type of cable or if there is any kind of restriction. In other words, do the NIC support auto MDI/MDIX?

If someone could link the documentation material used to confirm this, I would appreciate it very much

 

Thanks in advance

Hello @heliomuniz927

 

all ports support auto-detection of media, so you should not have problem to use any kind of cable. I was searching in documentation and came across below links for cabling for ION 2000 and 3000 series:
