Initial release of this document.


Purpose

The switch ships with one of these software images installed:

The metro base image provides basic Metro Ethernet features.

The metro access image includes additional features such as IEEE 802.1Q tunneling, Layer 2 protocol tunneling, dynamic ARP inspection, and IP source guard.

The metro IP access image adds Layer 3 functionality such as IP routing support for Routing Information Protocol (RIP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) Protocol, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), and Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), multiple VPN routing/forwarding on customer edge (multi-VRF-CE) devices, and IP multicast routing.

This guide provides procedures for using the commands that have been created or changed for use with the Cisco ME 3400 switch. It does not provide detailed information about these commands. For detailed information about these commands, see the Cisco ME 3400 Ethernet Access Switch Command Reference for this release. For information about the standard Cisco IOS commands, see the Cisco IOS documentation available from this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/psa/default.html?mode=prod

This guide does not describe system messages you might encounter or how to install your switch. For more information, see the Cisco ME 3400E, ME 3400, and ME 2400 Switch System Message Guide for this release and the Cisco ME 3400 Ethernet Access Switch Hardware Installation Guide.
