Hardware types

The SR Linux software supports the following Nokia hardware platforms1:

  • 7250 IXR-6
  • 7250 IXR-10
  • 7220 IXR-D1
  • 7220 IXR-D2
  • 7220 IXR-D2L
  • 7220 IXR-D3
  • 7220 IXR-D3L
  • 7220 IXR-H2
  • 7220 IXR-H3

The type field under the node configuration sets the emulated hardware type in the containerlab file:

# part of the evpn01.clab.yml file
      kind: srl
      type: ixrd3 # <- hardware type this node will emulate

The type field defines the hardware variant that this SR Linux node will emulate. The available type values are:

type value HW platform
ixr6 7250 IXR-6
ixr10 7250 IXR-10
ixrd1 7220 IXR-D1
ixrd2 7220 IXR-D2
ixrd2l 7220 IXR-D2L
ixrd3 7220 IXR-D3
ixrd3l 7220 IXR-D3L
ixrh2 7220 IXR-H2
ixrh3 7220 IXR-H3


Containerlab-launched nodes are started as ixrd2 hardware type unless set to a different type in the clab file.

  1. SR Linux can also run on the whitebox/3rd party switches.
