Product Bulletin No. 629132

Cisco is pleased to announce that you can now order the Cisco ® ME 3600X Series Ethernet Access Switches (Figure 1). The Cisco ME 3600X Series of Ethernet Access Switches are Cisco's first series of switches built specifically for the convergence of wireless and wired network services. A natural evolution to Cisco's Carrier Ethernet portfolio, the Cisco ME 3600X Series extends the portfolio's transport speed to 10 Gbps in the access layer for business and mobile applications. It also enables service providers to initiate Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based VPN services from within the access layer. Designed around important Carrier Ethernet features that simplify network operation, the Cisco ME 3600X Series enables premium services with enhanced service-level agreement (SLA) capabilities. An optional "pay-as- you-grow" feature and service activation model gives service providers a flexible, cost-effective solution.
