RED 50 vs SD-RED 60 traffic behavior

The RED 50 and SD-RED 60 devices handle untagged VLAN (hybrid port) traffic differently.
The table below shows how all traffic is handled across all ports.

How the RED 50 and SD-RED 60 handle traffic

Modes VLAN traffic Non-VLAN traffic
Untagged (hybrid port)
(Only one VLAN configuration allowed)

RED 50
Forwarded: Any VLAN traffic is forwarded using specified VLAN.


SD-RED 60
Forwarded: Any VLAN traffic is forwarded without change.

Forwarded: Non-VLAN traffic is tagged using specified VLAN.
Untagged, drop tagged (Access port)
(Only one VLAN configuration allowed)
Dropped: All VLAN traffic is dropped. Forwarded: Non-VLAN traffic is tagged using specified VLAN.
Tagged (trunk port)
(Multiple VLAN ID configuration allowed)
Forwarded: Traffic matching configured VLANs is forwarded, traffic that doesn't match is dropped. Dropped: Non-VLAN traffic is dropped.
Disabled Dropped Dropped

Warning

You can only tag VLAN traffic on the SD-RED 60 in standard/unified mode.

When you set the LAN switch port mode to VLAN, the SD-RED 60 encapsulates tagged and untagged traffic over the RED tunnel. This means that you can configure your remote switch port to replicate head office VLAN separation.

Tip

If you need the VLAN guest network behind the RED device to use the local gateway, you can route this traffic through an XGS series desktop model.
