Cisco® EtherSwitch® network and interface card modules are innovative solutions that can reduce total cost of ownership for customers by optionally integrating switch ports within a router. This integration allows network administrators to manage a single device utilizing the router command-line interface (CLI)for LAN and WAN management needs. This approach reduces network complexity, IT staff trainingneeds, equipment sparing requirements, and maintenance costs.

Product Overview

The new Cisco EtherSwitch service modules, pictured in Figure 1, greatly expand the capabilities of integrated switching within Cisco routers by providing support for new features such as IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), local Layer 3 switching, Cisco Network Assistant and Cisco Emergency Responder, and Cisco StackWise interfaces (available on NME-XD-24-1S-P only), as well as common software and features with Cisco Catalyst® 3750 and 3750-E Series Switches. Additionally, the new Cisco EtherSwitch service modules are the first modules that can take full advantage of the increased performance capabilities and new form factors of the enhanced network module slot on Cisco integrated services routers. (Table 7 provides a list of supported platforms).

Secure Network Connectivity for Data, Voice, and Video

When combined with a Cisco integrated services router, such as the Cisco 2821 pictured in Figure 2, the new Cisco EtherSwitch service modules can provide a fully integrated secure networking and converged IP Communications solution. From a single platform, IP phones can be connected to the network and powered using the IEEE 802.3af standard or pre-standard Cisco Power over Ethernet (PoE). With the optional addition of Cisco Communications Manager Express (formerly CallManager Express), the router can also provide the call processing for these phones. Further, as users attempt network access through the Cisco EtherSwitch service module, the module can use 802.1x to validate the end device’s credentials and place the user in the appropriate VLAN. As the end-user data leaves the LAN, the router can encrypt the traffic, helping to ensure secure communications between branch offices and central sites. This high degree of convergence greatly simplifies network architecture and allows for advanced services to be deployed to the branch level in a cost-effective manner.

Basic IP unicast routing protocols (static, Routing Information Protocol Version 1 [RIPv1], and RIPv2)
are supported for small-network routing applications.
IPv6 routing support in hardware allows for maximum performance in the future (IPv6 routing support requires Advanced IP Services Software).
Inter-VLAN IP routing enables full Layer 3 routing between two or more VLANs.
Advanced IP unicast routing protocols (Open Shortest Path First [OSPF], Interior Gateway Routing Protocol [IGRP], Enhanced IGRP [EIGRP], and Border Gateway Protocol Version 4[BGPv4]) are supported for load balancing and constructing scalable LANs (requires IP Services Software)

Secure Networking

Because security needs to be embedded throughout the network, switches play a critical role in any network defense strategy. Cisco EtherSwitch service modules provide a rich set of security features and can be a crucial component ofyour secure network strategy (Table 2). As more devices become IP-aware and seek to access the network, being able to identify endpoints and provide user authentication on a per-port basis becomes critical. Cisco EtherSwitch service modules help ensure trust and identity with support of IEEE 802.1x plus enhancements that are specific to Cisco. When combined with the advanced security features of Cisco Integrated Services Routers, Cisco EtherSwitch service modules help to ensure networkwide security.

Cisco StackWise Technology Support

The new NME-XD-24-1S-P Cisco EtherSwitch service module provides two Cisco StackWise connectors for interconnection with Cisco Catalyst 3750 and 3750-E Series switches. The Cisco StackWise architecture (Table 4) isa stacking architecture that is optimized for Gigabit Ethernet and designed to respond to stack additions and deletions, as well as redeployment while maintaining constant performance. Cisco StackWise technology unites individual Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series switches with the NME-XD-24-1S-P module into a single logical unit, using special stack-interconnect cables and stacking software. The stack behaves as a single switching unit that is managed by a master switch elected from one of the member switches. The master switch automatically creates and updates all of the switching and optional routing tables. A working stack can accept new members or delete old ones without service interruption.

Integrating Cisco StackWise technology into a Cisco integrated services router allows network managers to manage an entire stack of switches from the router CLI or with Cisco Network Assistant software, lowering operational costs by streamlining the checking of software versions, loading of global configuration parameters, and simplifying deployment of additional ports. For rapidly growing businesses, Cisco StackWise technology allows customers topayfor only what they need, and to easily add new switches to the stack as additional ports are needed.

Cisco EnergyWise Technology

Cisco EnergyWise is an innovative architecture, added to a large number of Cisco Catalyst switches as well as to theEtherSwitch service modules, promoting companywide sustainability by reducing energy consumption across anentire corporate infrastructure and affecting more than 50 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions created byworldwide building infrastructure, a much greater effect than the 2 percent generated by the IT industry. Cisco EnergyWise enables companies to measure the power consumption of network infrastructure and network-attached devices and manage power consumption with specific policies, reducing power consumption to realize increased cost savings, potentially affecting any powered device.

EnergyWise encompasses a highly intelligent network-based approach to communicate messages that measure andcontrol energy between network devices and endpoints. The network discovers Cisco EnergyWise manageable devices, monitors their power consumption, and takes action based on business rules to reduce power consumption. EnergyWise uses a unique domain-naming system to query and summarize information from large sets of devices, making it simpler than traditional network management capabilities. Cisco EnergyWise’s management interfaces allow facilities and network management applications to communicate with endpoints and each other using the network as a unifying fabric. The management interface uses standard SNMP or SSL to integrate Cisco and
third-party management systems.

Cisco EnergyWise extends the network as a platform for the power control plane for gathering, managing, andreducing power consumption of all devices, resulting in companywide optimized power delivery and reducedenergy costs.

Ease of Management

Cisco EtherSwitch service modules are highly manageable devices that offer many ease-of-management advantages (Table 5). For instance, the service modules can be managed via the host router CLI, providing one point of management for the LAN and WAN portions of the network. Since the Cisco EtherSwitch service modules run the same software image as the Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series, the CLI commands are identical to those used on the CiscoCatalyst 3750 Series. This greatly simplifies management of the Cisco EtherSwitch service modules, resulting in lower training costs, and a reduction in the chance of configuration errors. Additionally, the Cisco EtherSwitch service modules can be managed using one of Cisco’s advanced GUI software suites such as the EtherSwitch’s embedded device manager or CiscoView (contained in CiscoWorks LMS). These easy to use Web-based management interfaces can be accessed through a standard Web browser.

For More Information

This document describes information about Cisco EtherSwitch service modules only. For more information about Cisco EtherSwitch service modules, contact your local account representative.

For information about the Cisco EtherSwitch network modules, a data sheet is available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps259/products_data_sheet09186a00801aca3e.html.

For information about the Cisco 3750 Catalyst Switches, a data sheet is available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps5023/products_data_sheets_list.html.




[1] When installed in Cisco 3700 Series routers, the modules can only provide Cisco pre-standard PoE. The Cisco EtherSwitch service modules do not support any PoE when installed in the Cisco 2691 router
[2] Requires the SM-NM-ADPTR adapter card in order to be inserted into the Cisco 2900 Series and Cisco 3900 Series Routers
[3] Only one Cisco EtherSwitch service module per chassis is supported if NME-XD-24ES-1S-P is used, otherwise up to two Cisco EtherSwitch service modules are supported per chassis where network module slot density allows.
1 NME-16ES-1G-P is supported on the Cisco 2691, but no PoE support is available.
2 Requires upgrading the router’s internal power supply to an AC-IP version.
3 Cisco 3725 and 3745 routers only support Cisco pre-standard PoE; they do not support IEEE802.3af
4 ISR Generation 2 POE Boost is not supported on these modules. For POE boost the SM-ES2 series and SM-ES3 Series Enhanced EtherSwitch Modules must be used.
1 Only one Cisco EtherSwitch service module per chassis is supported if NME-XD-24ES-1S-P is used; otherwise up to two Cisco EtherSwitch service modules are supported per chassis where network module slot density allows
2 Additional PoE and switch ports can be added to the router with the Cisco EtherSwitch HWICs and network modules, but the EtherSwitch HWICs cannot be stacked with the EtherSwitch service modules.
3 You can only utilize a maximum of two Cisco EtherSwitch service modules per chassis. Four NME-16ES-1G-P or NME-XD-23-1G-P modules cannot be used in a Cisco 3845 or 3745 series router. To maximize switch port density, two 48-port Cisco EtherSwitch service modules should be used on the Cisco 3845 series router.
