Morning Experts !
I have been doing some reasearch and have struggled to pick out a satisfying explanaton on the appropriate or best practice use of SVI vs Router ports on multilayer switches.
From what I gather there are much the same in function but have different ramifications once in use.
SVI are used on L2 designs and STP extends to downstream switches
Routed ports are easier to manage filtering and ACLs.
But my real question is what are the situations and scenarios would/should they be used in.
For example would you use one over the other depending on what device you were connection to.
like Switch<----------->Switch & Switch<------Router-------
would it depend on the design locations (core,distribution,access)
Please provide some scenarios where you would use one or the other and the reasons
I have attached an image to give an oportunity of clarification of any forthcoming explanations.
But please don't let this limit you to telling me what you would do in just this scenario.
