The Cisco ME 3600X series of Ethernet access switches is Cisco's first series of switches built specifically for the convergence of wireless and wire-line services. A natural evolution to Cisco's Carrier Ethernet portfolio, the Cisco ME 3600X series extends the portfolio's transport speed to 10 Gbps in the access layer for business and mobile applications. It also enables service providers to initiate Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based VPN services from within the access layer. Designed around key Carrier Ethernet features that simplify network operation, the Cisco ME 3600X series enables premium services with enhanced service-level agreement (SLA) capabilities.
Key Points
  • MPLS in the access layer
  • Advanced Service-Level Agreements (SLA)
  • Mobile timing and synchronization services
  • Operational efficiency for Carrier Ethernet access deployments
  • High-performance hardware
Product Features
  • MPLS in the access layer
    The Cisco ME 3600X series extends MPLS into the access layer by enabling service providers to initiate MPLS-based Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN services from within the access layer. The Cisco ME 3600X series gives service providers the ability to expand MPLS toward their network edge to gain the advantages of a single unified MPLS control plane across their network.
  • Advanced Service-Level Agreements (SLA)
    Service-aware quality of service (QoS) allows service providers to expand and differentiate their services portfolio with highly advanced and differentiating SLAs. The hierarchical QoS capabilities of the Cisco ME 3600X series scale to eight queues per service, three levels of scheduling, and buffer volumes capable of accommodating today's most demanding wireline and wireless applications.
  • Mobile timing and synchronization services
    The Cisco ME 3600X series provides the timing services required in today's converged access network to support mobile solutions including Radio Access Network (RAN) applications and offers integrated support for Building Integrated Timing Supply (BITS) interface. The Cisco ME 3600X series also supports synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) and can source network clocking information.
  • Operational efficiency for Carrier Ethernet access deployments
    The Cisco ME 3600X series features key enhancements that help service providers simplify and facilitate the management of their network, resulting in diminishing operational costs. This unique feature set enables the Cisco ME 3600X series to be deployed in a variety of applications including business service with 10 Gigabit Ethernet User Network Interface (UNI) and Ethernet mobile backhaul. These features enhance performance awareness, facilitate troubleshooting, and simplify service turn-up and restoration, ultimately reducing operational cost. "Dying gasp" for power indicators and four external alarm inputs to detect changes in remote sites further help service providers manage the health of network elements.
  • High-performance hardware
    Based on the Cisco Carrier Ethernet ASIC, the Cisco ME 3600X series is a non-blocking switching system providing line-rate Carrier Ethernet performance. The custom Cisco Carrier Ethernet ASIC technology enables next-generation Carrier Ethernet service integration without impacting line-rate performance. The 1RU switch holds two slots for hot-swappable and redundant power supplies. Three fans are integrated into each power supply, providing fan redundancy. High availability is also achieved on the Cisco ME 3600X series through proactive diagnostic tools including Generic On-Line Diagnostics (GOLD) and Onboard Failure Logging (OBFL). These tools help service providers avoid potential problems before they occur and troubleshoot and diagnose once identified.
