PRODUCT BULLETIN NO. 3086

Cisco Systems® is pleased to introduce the new Cisco® ME 3400 Series Ethernet Access switches, a family of next-generation customer-located equipment (CLE) built especially for voice, video, and data ("triple play") and Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN services. Its design is based on experience with the most widely deployed access switches, the Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series and Catalyst 3550 Series. With service provider-friendly hardware and mission-specific software, the Cisco ME 3400 Series is the first access switches that are optimized for both the Ethernet-to-the-home (ETTH) triple-play services and Ethernet-to-the-business (ETTB) VPN services. It provides the most comprehensive security solution for Metro Ethernet access, covering subscriber, switch, and network protection. The Cisco ME 3400 Series supports multiple software feature images to provide a "pay-as-you-grow" deployment model. Because it supports both triple play and Layer 2 and 3 VPN services, you can reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and operating expenses (OpEx) with a single access solution.

Table 1 provides brief descriptions of the Cisco ME 3400 Series switches and options.
