Description: Cisco SM-X EtherSwitch Service Module - Switch - managed - 48 x 10/100/1000 (PoE+) + 2 x SFP - plug-in module - PoE+
Mfr Part #: SM-X-ES3D-48-P=
The Cisco SM-X Layer2/3 EtherSwitch Service Module can reduce your company's total cost of ownership (TCO) by integrating Gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports. This integration allows network administrators to manage a single device using Cisco management tools or the router command-line interface (CLI) for LAN and WAN management needs. This approach reduces network complexity, lowers maintenance contract costs, lessens staff training needs, simplifies software qualification efforts, increases availability, and delivers a consistent user experience at branch offices and headquarters.
The Cisco SM-X Layer2/3 EtherSwitch Service Module helps ensure maximum availability, high performance, ease of upgrade, and expandability. The modules have their own processors, switching engines, and flash memory that run independently of host router resources, helping ensure maximum concurrent switching and routing performance as well as providing integrated PoE+, security, and increased ease of management.
- Cisco EnergyWise technology enables Cisco EtherSwitch devices to automatically reduce off-peak use of PoE
- The modules offer two to eight times lower power consumption than standalone switches
- Because no additional rack space or power supply is needed, there is less to rack, stack, and cool
- An integrated switch solution lowers operating costs, simplifies troubleshooting, and enables businesses to scale
- One vendor means one support center to decrease troubleshooting time and eliminate finger pointing among vendors
- A single-box solution simplifies remote management and improves services interoperability to help ensure the highest reliability for all users
- End-to-end testing for standards-based and innovative Cisco proprietary features provides superior services interoperability and excellent value
- Fewer components (for example, power supplies and fans) results in fewer failures and less downtime
- Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) is at least twice as high as that for a standalone switch
