Let us take a closer look at the Collapsed Fabric design

As descripbed in the introduction, A collapsed fabric is an excellent choice for small scale data centers where a full CLOS (“CLAUSE”) architecture is not necessary.

Let us take a look at an example here.

Leaf switches: VXLAN/EVPN functionalities occur on these leaf switches.

About the leaf switches

In this collpased fabric, there are two leaf switches and all the VXLAN/EVPN functionalities are occuring on these leaf switches.

We also have the ability to add and control access switches for additional ports
