Connecting Multiple Switches

    Hi All,

    Wondering about switches and connecting different ones together.

    If you have 5 of the same (similar) you can connect them in a stack and they act as one. If you have multiple different switches though can you still stack them or is there a specific way to connect them all together. All will have SFP ports for fibre.

    I've mainly seen connecting multiple switches and using LAG to bind the connections and STP on the link ports to stop the loops but whenever I see this it's always with the same switch used multiple times as opposed to different switches.

    Any thoughts appreciated.
