Locating the Serial Number, PID, VID and CLEI

Software License

To obtain a software license, you need a product authorization key (PAK) and the unique device identifier (UDI) of the device where the license will be installed.

The serial number (SN), product ID (PID), version ID (VID), and Common Language Equipment Identifier (CLEI) are printed on a label on the back of the router or on a label tray located on the router chassis or motherboard. The UDI can be viewed using the show license udi command in privileged Exec mode in Cisco Internet Operating System (IOS) software. For additional information on the UDI or how to obtain a PAK, see the Cisco Software Activation on Integrated Services Routers document on Cisco.com.

The UDI has two main components:

  • Product ID (PID)
  • Serial number (SN)

The Cisco ISR 4451-Xs have four 10/100/1000 front panel ports and SFPs and one 10/100/1000 management port.

Front Panel Ethernet Ports

There are 4 front panel Ethernet ports. Each port independently supports dual-media types, RJ45 copper or SFPs.

Dual Mode GE/SFP Ports

There are Dual Mode ports available on the Cisco ISR 4451-X that can function as GE or SFP ports.

GE Ports

The GE RJ-45 copper interface ports support 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 1000BASE-T.

SFP Ports

The small-form-factor pluggable (SFP) ports support, but are not restricted to 1000BASE-LX/LH, 1000BASE-SX, 1000BASE-ZX, and Coarse Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (CWDM-8) modules, as well as 100Mbs SFP modules.

The SFP port shares the same physical port as an RJ-45 GE port with the same number. It can only be used for one or the other function at one time. The SFP port supports auto-media-detection, auto-failover and remote fault indication (RFI), as described in the IEEE 802.3ah specification.

Use the media-type {rj45{auto-failover}} | {sfp{auto-failover}} command to enable the auto-media-detection and auto-failover features. Use the Command Lookup Tool for details about this command.

The SFP port can be configured for the following behaviors:

  • Always use the RJ-45 port.
  • Always use the SFP port.
  • Always use the RJ-45 port but fail over to the SFP port if the RJ-45 port fails. This is the default configuration.
  • Always use the SFP port but fail over to the RJ-45 port if the SFP port fails.

USB Serial Console Port

The Mini-USB type B serial port can be used as an alternative to the RJ45 console port. For Windows operating systems older than Windows 7, you must install a Windows USB device driver before using the USB console port.

Front Panel PoE+ Ports

Two of the four front panel ethernet ports are PoE+ (802.3at) compliant ports. These are ports GE 0/0/0 and GE 0/0/1.

System PoE power supplies do not provide power to the front panel ports.


Note The PoE card is always required to provide PoE power to these ports, regardless of what other power supplies are present in the system. An internal PoE module needs to be ordered separately for this functionality.


Internal PoE card

The internal PoE daughter card provides a total of 30.8 Watts of power across the 2 ports.

LED Indicators

Table 1-1 summarizes the LED indicators that are located in the router bezel or chassis, but not on the interface cards and modules.

Cisco UCS E-Series Server Modules

The Cisco UCS E-Series Servers (E-Series Servers) are the next generation of Cisco UCS Express servers. E-Series Servers are a family of size, weight, and power efficient blade servers that are housed within the Generation 2 Cisco Integrated Services Routers (ISR G2) and the Cisco 4451-X Integrated Services Router. These servers provide a general purpose compute platform for branch-office applications deployed either as bare-metal on operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows or Linux; or as virtual machines on hypervisors, such as VMware vSphere Hypervisor™, Microsoft Hyper-V, or Citrix XenServer.

Compact Flash

The Cisco ISR 4451-Xs use a USB to Compact Flash.


Note Do not run the router without a Compact Flash card installed. Cisco IOS-XE will not come up without a compact flash card in the router.


Solid State Drives

The NIM slot 3 in the Cisco ISR 4451-X supports a field-replaceable solid state drive module with a dual-SSD SATA slot.

The SSD slot is always powered up. The SSDs are hot-swappable as part of normal operation. See the “Overview of the SSD Carrier Card NIM (NIM-SSD)” section for more information.

Packet Voice Digital Signal Processor Modules

The Packet Voice Digital Signal Processor Modules (PVDM4s) add additional voice capabilities to the Cisco ISR 4451-Xs. The PVDM4 is installed inside the chassis of the router. See the “Installing the PVDM4 on the Motherboard of the Cisco ISR 4451-X” section for installation instructions.

Memory

Cisco ISR 4451-X routers contain the following types of memory:

  • Control and data plane DIMMs—Stores the running configuration and routing tables and is used for packet buffering by the network interfaces. Cisco IOS XE software executes from memory. Supported module types are Dual In-Line Memory Modules (DIMMs).

Note The DIMMs are interchangeable although the same sizes are not supported in all locations. The single data plane DIMM must have a 2GB DIMM which is exactly like one of the two DIMMs used for the control plane with 4GB default memory. The control plane uses two DIMMs and they must be exactly the same type and density.


  • Boot/NVRAM—Stores the bootstrap program (ROM monitor), the configuration register, and the startup configuration.
  • Flash memory—Internal bootflash memory. Stores the operating system software image. Each model supports 1 internal Compact Flash 8GB, 15GB or 32 GB memory card. The compact flash is located behind the fan tray on the router chassis.

Note You must use Cisco-qualified CompactFlash cards. Use of any other cards during normal network operation can affect system performance.


 

Power Supplies

Cisco ISR 4451-Xs support a variety of power supply configurations. All power supplies are field-replaceable and externally accessible.

If configured with dual power supplies or a PoE adaptor, the power supplies are hot-swappable. There is an option for a second power supply unit.

Configurations include AC, internal PoE, and PoE boost. Table 1-3 summarizes the power options.

Fans, Ventilation, and Airflow

Chassis Ventilation

An internal fan tray consisting of 4 fans provides chassis cooling. An onboard temperature sensor controls the fan speed. The fans are always on when the router is powered on. Under most conditions, the fans operate at the slowest speed to conserve power and reduce fan noise. The fans operate at the higher speeds when necessary under conditions of higher ambient temperature. To replace a fan tray, see the “Replacing a Fan Tray” section.

About Slots and Interfaces

This section covers the following topics:

About Slot, Subslot (Bay), and Port Numbering

The Cisco ISR 4451-X supports two types of interface modules: Enhanced Service Modules (SMs) and Network Modules (NIMs).

  • In most cases, the router designates its interfaces using a 3-tuple notation that lists the slot, bay, and port. The 3-tuple value is zero based. An example of a 3-tuple is 0/1/2. This refers to slot 0, the second bay in slot 0 (the first bay is 0 so the second bay is 1), and the third port in bay 1. See Table 1-4 for more examples.

  • Slots and bays are numbered from the left to the right, and from the top to the bottom.
  • NIMs are designated by the number of the first slot that they occupy. A NIM occupies two slots, but its designation is only the left-most slot number (double-wide cards only).
  • The auxiliary (AUX) serial port and console (CON) serial port do not have slot, bay, or port numbers.
  • The GE management port is named GE 0. It does not have a slot, bay, or port number.
  • The two USB ports are named USB0 and USB1. They do not have slot, bay or port numbers

Note USB0 and USB1 can be used to insert flash drives..

Slot Numbering

Slots are numbered 0, 1 and 2.

About Slot 0

The following are the main features of Slot 0:

  • Slot 0 is the motherboard and not removable. It is reserved for integrated ports and NIMs.
  • The front panel GE ports (or native interface ports) always reside in slot 0 and bay 0. There are four ports, and they are called Gigabitethernet 0/0/0, Gigabitethernet 0/0/1, Gigabitethernet 0/0/2, and Gigabitethernet 0/0/3.
  • PVDM4s do not have an external slot number. Therefore, the nomenclature for PVDM4s always has 0 in the first tuple. For example, the 3-tuple for an PVDM4 might be 0/4/x.

About Slot 1 and 2

Slot 1 and slot 2 are NIM slots. All enhanced SM slots start with 1.

Additional Slots

The Cisco ISR 4451-Xs have the following additional slots:

  • P0: Field upgradable power supply slot 0
  • P1: Field upgradable/replaceable power supply slot 1.
  • INT-POE: Internal PoE card slot.

Subslot/Bay Numbering

  • Integrated devices, also known as integrated ports or FPGEs, and integrated NIMs reside in a fixed section of bay 0.
  • Main board NIMs bays start at bay 1, since the integrated devices and integrated NIMs take up bay 0.
  • The bay numbers for PVDM4s start with the next bay number after the last NIM bay number.
  • The two modular SATA slots share the same bay as the third NIM slot.

Gigabit Ethernet Management

The Cisco ISR 4451-X provides a Gigabit Ethernet Management port, called GE0. This port is the only 1-tuple port on the system. See the <chapter on Ethernet Management in SW Configuration Guide> for additional information about the Gigabit Ethernet Management port.

About Fixed Interfaces

The router supports fixed interfaces on the motherboard and on service modules. The system treats the onboard interfaces as if they lived on a virtual NIM plugged into bay 0. In this case, the front panel GigabitEthernet ports are considered slot 0 bay 0 (0/0/x). The onboard ports on the service module are slot 1 bay 0 (1/0/x).

Periodic Inspection and Cleaning

Periodic inspection and cleaning of the external surface of the router is recommended to minimize the negative impact of environmental dust or debris. The frequency of inspection and cleaning is dependent upon the severity of the environmental conditions, but a minimum of every six months is recommended. Cleaning involves vacuuming of router air intake and exhaust vents. See the “Fans, Ventilation, and Airflow” section.


Caution Sites with ambient temperatures consistently above 25°C or 77°F and with potentially high levels of dust or debris may require periodic preventative maintenance cleaning.
