Do S series switches support expedited forwarding

Expedited forwarding (EF) is supported by some low-end firewalls. After a Layer 2 interface card is installed on some low-end firewalls and EF is enabled, packets can be forwarded directly at Layer 2 without security processing. This function improves the forwarding rate of firewalls and is applicable to Layer 2 scenarios.
S series switches have no security mechanisms as firewalls. All packets on switches are forwarded by searching the MAC address or routing table. Therefore, switches use the similar mechanism as EF, and no configuration is required.
