Legacy Open Mesh: Switches: Jumbo Frames



This article describes how to enable and configure jumbo frames on a Open Mesh Switch.


  • Open Mesh Switches


Ethernet frames, as specified by the IEEE 802.3 standard, transmit a Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) of 1500 bytes. Jumbo Frames support an MTU of up to 9216 bytes.

Ensure all devices connected to the switch can process the Ethernet MTU size set on your switch.


1. Navigate to Manage -> Switches, and select a switch.
