ONET Administration Guide
Oracle's ONET feature groups uplink and downlink ports on its switch. ONET provides internal and external isolated network connectivity for blade servers by bridging downlink ports with uplink ports connected to an external switched network. By restricting traffic within the uplink/downlink port combination, ONET ensures that traffic is not propagated to other ports that should not have access to this data. By linking the uplink port to the downlink port, ONET effectively turns that connection into a bridge for the blade server connected to the downlink port. This document describes the use of ONET on a switch.
