Timo had a questin on HPNetworking Blade switches:

IEEE 802.1Q VLANs Supported

1024 VLANs, 4K VLAN IDs

802.1Q Tagged VLAN

GVRP is supported for VLAN registration


Can someone tell me which is correct value ?




Steve supplied the answer:




The 6120XG supports 1024 VLANS

The 6120G/XG supports 256 VLANS as per  Z.14.22 release in November 2010




Hope that helps clear up the confusion.
