Switch Compatibility Matrix

This compatibility matrix shows supported switches that can be onboarded as Policy Enforcement Points (Virtual Edge Nodes) as well as switches that can host our Virtual Edge Container. This matrix is updated with every release.

Notes:

  • The recommended IOS code listed for each switch in the above chart is based on Elisity's comprehensive QA testing. Older versions of code may still operate with potential caveats. 
  • Any switch on the list above can be onboarded to any Elisity Virtual Edge (either Hypervisor-Hosted Virtual Edge or Switch-Hosted Virtual Edge)
  • Cisco StackWise Virtual is supported.
  • Access switches at the edge are typically onboarded as Virtual Edge Nodes (policy enforcement points), however some environments may not have supported access switches at the edge. This does not preclude you from leveraging Elisity Identity based Microsegmentation since enforcement can happen at the aggregation layer as well so long as the aggregation switches are found as a supported platform in the chart above. See this guide for design details. 
  • Catalyst 9600 series switches are supported in Beta. Please review the Onboarding Catalyst 9000/3850/3650 as a Virtual Edge Node article for more details. 
  • 9200CX switches are currently not supported.
