This product bulletin provides the content and delivery information for Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(53)EZ, which is the first Cisco IOS Software release that supports the Cisco IE 3010 Series Switches. Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(53)EZ is an early deployment release based on Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(53)SE. Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(53)EZ should not be used for any switch other than the Cisco IE 3010 Series Switches.

New Features

This release contains most the features found in the LAN Base image feature set of Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(53)SE. In addition, the following features are added to make the Cisco IE 3010 Series an ideal product for Industrial Ethernet applications, including factory automation, process automation and control, intelligent transportation systems (ITSs), rail transport, and mass transit.

• Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP) supports scalable number of nodes in a ring topology with fast convergence time.

• Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) port-based allocation retains the IP address on a per port basis and simplifies the end-host replacement in an industrial setting.

• Cisco Express Setup simplifies initial configuration with a web browser, eliminating the need for more complex terminal emulation programs.

• Cisco Smartports templates provide the option to apply a default global or interface-level macro with a recommended configuration, allowing the user to easily optimize the switch configuration for the specific application.

The platform and features delivered with Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(53)EZ will be incorporated into subsequent Cisco IOS Software 12.2SE releases.
