Access Control List Daughter Card for Catalyst 8540

 

Data Sheet


Access Control List Daughter Cards for the Catalyst 8540 Platform


The access control list (ACL) daughter cards for the Catalyst® 8540 are ideal for supporting high-speed Layer-3 Gigabit backbone applications that require Layer 3 Security Capabilities. The ACL Daughter Cards are supported by the Catalyst 8540 platform, providing large enterprises and service providers with both Layer 3 and ATM switching in one integrated platform.

Benefits

The access control list (ACL) daughter cards implement data-plane access lists in hardware, providing high-speed performance. This extends the traffic control and security capabilities of the Catalyst 8540 beyond control-plane access lists, which are currently supported.

The ACL daughter cards can be used with existing
10/100-Base-TX, 100-Base-FX, and Gigabit Ethernet interface modules on the Catalyst 8540. The daughter cards provide data-plane ACL functionality for both IP and IPX traffic.

Feature Support

The Catalyst 8540 supports control-plane access lists such as: permit/deny IP/IPX routes and IPX Service Advertisement Protocol (SAP) filtering without the daughter card. The new daughter card enables data-plane ACLs for IP and IPX traffic. Listed below are the ACL features supported. For more details about specific features please see the release notes.

ACL Daughter Card Features Supported

  • Standard/extended IP access lists (1-99; 1301-1999/100-199; 2000-2699) in hardware; both inbound and outbound
  • Named access lists
  • Standard IPX access lists (800-899) without source node; both inbound and outbound
  • All Cisco IOS® ACLs for control-plane traffic

Applications

The ACL daughter card can be used to limit/grant access to certain network resources by filtering traffic based on the Layer 3 header. It is designed specifically to meet the demanding needs of large enterprise and service provider networks. Figure 1 shows the Catalyst 8540 in an enterprise core network.
