Re: CSR3xx, HW-Offloading, Q-in-Q in 6.43

I can confirm that VLAN stacking with 0x88a8 and 0x8100 ether-types is now possible on CRS3xx series switches running RouterOS 6.43rc51 or greater. Mikrotik have also kindly brought the terminology in line with the rest of the industry by renaming "vlan-protocol" to "ether-type" and listing the actu...

Hi Shane,

The CRS3xx is Marvell based. Check out https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:C ... 8Q-in-Q.29 for your switch.

Re: LLDP

Please clarify "not doing anything"? LLDP initial support was added in 2016-Sep-30
RouterOS is still missing LLDP-MED which allows the router/switch to signal to VoIP phones which vlan they need to use. This is one of the main reasons for using LLDP, and is a standard feature on switches.
