Flexible Uplink Modules


When running KB software, support for flexible uplink modules is available only on 3810M switches.

The uplink speed and capacity can be changed by adding or removing the uplink modules. These Flexible Uplink Port (FUP) Modules are supported only on switches that support the JL079A, JL078A, JL083A, or JL081A modules. The speed and the number of ports depend on the selected uplink module.

All physically inserted flexible modules are auto-detected when you boot a 3810M switch with the default configuration (factory reset).
