Introduction to Cisco Network Module and Service Module Form Factors

Network Module Form Factors

Cisco network modules are available in the following five form factors to provide greater modularity and functionality for users:

Single-wide network modules, also called NM or NME (see Figure 1)

Extended single-wide network modules, also called NME-X (see Figure 2)

Double-wide network modules, also called NMD (see Figure 3)

Extended double-wide network modules, also called NME-XD (see Figure 4)

Single-wide network module with a network module adapter for use in Cisco 2900 series and 3900 series ISRs.

Single-wide network modules are installed in fixed network module slots on Cisco 2600 series, Cisco 3600 series, Cisco 3700 series, and Cisco MWR 1941-DC routers, and in configurable network module slots on Cisco 2811, Cisco 2821, Cisco 2851, and Cisco 3800 series routers. See Figure 1 for a sample single-wide network module. Single-wide network modules are installed in Cisco 2900 series and 3900 series ISRs by using a network module adapter.

Figure 1 Sample Single-Wide Network Module

Extended single-wide network modules are installed in configurable network module slots on the Cisco 2821, Cisco 2851, and Cisco 3800 series routers. Extended single-wide network modules cannot be installed in Cisco 2600 series, Cisco 3600 series, Cisco 3700 series and Cisco MWR 1941-DC routers. See Figure 2 for a sample extended single-wide network module.

Figure 2 Sample Extended Single-Wide Network Module

Double-wide network modules require the removal of the right side panel for installation in the top slot of the Cisco 3725 router, because the bottom slot only supports single-wide modules. On the Cisco 3745 router, the double-wide network module occupies two single-wide slots and is supported by removing the midwall divider. On Cisco 2851 and Cisco 3800 series routers, network module slots must be set up properly before double-wide network modules can be installed. See Figure 3 for a sample double-wide network module.

Figure 3 Sample Double-Wide Network Module


Tip For information on configuring network module slots to fit double-wide network modules, see the "Preparing Cisco Router Slots for Network Module and Service Module Installation" section on page 9.


Extended double-wide network modules are supported only on the Cisco 2851 and Cisco 3800 series routers. Extended double-wide network modules occupy two extended single-wide network module slots, which must be set up properly before extended double-wide network modules can be installed. See Figure 4 for a sample extended double-wide network module.

Figure 4 Sample Extended Double-Wide Network Module


Tip For information on configuring network module slots to fit extended double-wide network modules, see the "Preparing Cisco Router Slots for Network Module and Service Module Installation" section on page 9.



Note Extension modules, such as the EVM-HD-8FXS/DID, are equivalent to a single-wide network module. However, extension modules are not supported in all Cisco access router network module slots. See Table 1 for information on slots supporting extension modules.


Service Module Form Factors

Cisco 2900 series and 3900 series routers have only single-wide service module (SM) slots and double-wide service module slots. There is no extended service module. Some network modules can be used in service module slots using an adapter. See "Using Network Modules in Service Module Slots" section.

There is only one form factor blank panel and it is a single-wide blank panel. Two blank panels and a divider are used to cover a double-wide slot area. See Figure 5.

Figure 5 Service Module Single-Wide Blank Panel

Cisco Access Routers and Cisco Network Modules

The Cisco network modules described in this document are supported on the following Cisco routers:

Cisco 2600 series, including the Cisco 2610, Cisco 2610XM, Cisco 2611, Cisco 2611XM, Cisco 2612, Cisco 2613, Cisco 2620, Cisco 2620XM, Cisco 2621, Cisco 2621XM, Cisco 2650, Cisco 2650XM, Cisco 2651, Cisco 2651XM, and Cisco 2691 routers


Note References to the Cisco 2600XM routers apply to the following routers: Cisco 2610XM, Cisco 2611XM, Cisco 2620XM, Cisco 2621XM, Cisco 2650XM, and Cisco 2651XM.


Cisco 2811, Cisco 2821, and Cisco 2851 routers

Cisco 3600 series, including the Cisco 3620, Cisco 3631, Cisco 3640, Cisco 3640A, Cisco 3661, and Cisco 3662 routers

Cisco 3700 series, including the Cisco 3725 and Cisco 3745 routers

Cisco 3800 series, including the Cisco 3825 and Cisco 3845 routers

Cisco MWR 1941-DC routers

Cisco 2900 series and Cisco 3900 series routers support some network modules with the addition of a network module adapter. See "Using Network Modules in Service Module Slots" section.

For information on these Cisco routers, see the hardware documentation described in the "Related Documents" section.

Cisco Access Routers and Cisco Service Modules

Cisco 2900 series, Cisco 3900 series, and Cisco Generation 2 ISRs have service module slots instead of network module slots. Service module slots are slightly wider than network module slots. Cisco 2900 series and 3900 series ISR service module slots accommodate some, but not all, network modules. See the document Module Support on Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2. Because of the physical difference, network modules require a service module adapter to fit in the Cisco 2900 and 3900 series service module slots. See "Using Network Modules in Service Module Slots" section.

Network Module and Service Module Slot Locations and Numbering on Cisco Access Routers

Most Cisco access router network module and service module slots are numbered from right to left, bottom to top. However, some routers use different slot numbering schemes. In Cisco ISR G2s, the interface cards and service module slots are shown in the Overview of Cisco Interface Cards in Cisco Access Routers. See Figure 6 and Figure 7 for examples of network module slot numbering on Cisco access routers.

To find installation instructions for Cisco interface cards, see Cisco Interface Cards Install and Upgrade Guides.

To find installation instructions for Cisco network modules, access the Cisco Network Modules Install and Upgrade Guides.

Using Network Modules in Service Module Slots

The network module adapter is used to insert supported Cisco network modules in the service module slots in Cisco 2900 series and 3900 series routers. See Cisco Access Routers and Cisco Service Modules.

Cisco 2900 series routers must be powered down before installing a network module and network module adapter. Cisco 3900 series routers may have service and network modules installed and removed with power applied using online insertion and removal (OIR). See the Cisco 2900 Series and 3900 Series Hardware Installation guide:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/2900/hardware/installation/guide/hig.html

Cabling for Cisco Network Modules

The cables required to connect the network module to the network differ according to interface and connector type. See Table 3 for more information.


Note Cabling for 1- or 2-slot network modules is determined by the installed interface cards. See the Cisco Interface Cards Install and Upgrade Guides for information on specific interface cards.
