Cisco SM-X EtherSwitch Service Module - Switch - Product Details
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.
