Host routes refer to any /32 routes, including those that are learned indirectly (for instance, learned over Open Shortest Path First [OSPF] or other routing protocols). It does not mean the supervisor module can install 80,000 directly connected clients (/32) for attached VLANs or SVIs. In other words, directly connected routes in engineering terms refers to any /32 prefix. This includes clients attached to switch's own VLAN/SVI and those /32 prefixes learned over any routing protocols as well. An indirectly connected route is a route with a prefix other than /32.

Flexible ASIC Templates

Flexible ASIC templates enable universal deployments by leveraging the Unified Access Data Plane’s (UADP) ability to create resources to optimize table sizes for different places in the network. Based on how the switch is used in the network, an appropriate flexible ASIC template may be selected to configure the switch for specific features.

The following flexible ASIC templates are supported on Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches:

●   Access: Maximizes system resources for MAC and security

●   Core: Maximizes system resources for unicast and multicast routing

●   Software-defined access (SD-Access): Maximizes system resources to support fabric deployment

●   Network Address Translation (NAT): Maximizes system resources for Layer 3 and NAT to support collapsed core WAN deployments

SD-Access Architecture

What if you could give time back to IT? Provide network access in minutes for any user or device to any application – without compromise? SD-Access is the industry’s first policy-based automation from network edge to cloud and the foundation for your digital network. Built on the principles of Cisco DNA, SD-Access provides end-to-end segmentation to keep user, device, and application traffic separate without a redesign of the network. It automates user access policy so you can make sure the right policies are set for any user or device with any application across the network. This is accomplished with a single network fabric across LAN and WLAN, which creates a consistent user experience anywhere without compromising on security.

There are many challenges today in managing the network to drive business outcomes. These limitations are due to manual configuration and fragmented tool offerings. SD-Access provides:

●   A transformational management solution that reduces operational expenses and enhances business agility

●   Consistent management of wired and wireless network provisioning and policy

●   Automated network segmentation and group-based policy

●   Contextual insights for fast issue resolution and capacity planning

●   Open and programmable interfaces for integration with third-party solutions

For an overview of key use cases SD-Access addresses, refer to the SD-Access Solution Overview.

Cisco StackWise Virtual

StackWise Virtual is an advanced stacking technology that supports both access and distribution deployments through multiple topologies (such as two nodes or a ring). It provides higher scale for system virtualization at the network layer. Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches support StackWise Virtual with a two-node topology on select models. Refer to the Release Notes for more details.

StackWise Virtual in the distribution layer of the network interacts with the access and core layer switches as if it were a single logical switch. An access/core switch connects to both switches of the StackWise Virtual switch using one logical port channel called a Multichassis EtherChannel (MEC). The MEC enables the StackWise Virtual switches to provide redundancy and load-balancing on the port channel.

This capability enables a loop-free layer-2 network topology, since the StackWise Virtual switches are treated as one logical switch for both access and core switches. The StackWise Virtual switch also simplifies the layer-3 network topology by presenting itself as one logical switch, thus reducing the number of routing peers in the network.

Platform Benefits

Open Cisco IOS XE opens a completely new paradigm in network configuration, operation and monitoring through network automation. Cisco’s automation solution is open, standards-based and extensible across the entire lifecycle of a network device. Various mechanisms employed to bring about the ease of network automation are outlined below based.

●   Automated device provisioning: This is the ability to automate the process of upgrading software images and installing configuration files on Cisco Catalyst switches when they are being deployed in the network for the first time. Cisco provides both turnkey solutions like Plug and Play along with off-the-shelf tools like Zero Touch Provisioning and Pre-boot Execution Environment (PXE) that enable an effortless and automated deployment.

●   API-driven configuration: A modern network switch like Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches support a wide range of automation features and provides robust open APIs over Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) and RESTconf using YANG data models for external tools, both off-the-shelf and custom-built, so you can automatically provision network resources.

●   Granular visibility: Model-driven telemetry provides a mechanism to stream data from a switch to a destination. The data to be streamed is driven through subscription of a data set in a YANG model. The subscribed data set is streamed to the destination at a configured interval. Additionally, open Cisco IOS XE enables the push model, which provides near real-time monitoring of the network leading to quick detection and rectification of failure situations.

Security

●   Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA): ETA is a unique capability for identifying malware in encrypted traffic from the access layer. Since more and more traffic is becoming encrypted, the visibility this feature affords for threat detection is critical for keeping your networks secure at different layers. Additionally, ETA is able detect vulnerable implementations in encrypted traffic.

●   Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)-256 MACsec encryption1: AES is the IEEE 802.1AE standard for authenticating and encrypting packets between switches and endpoints. Catalyst 9400 Series switches are hardware capable 256-bit and 128-bit AES on all ports at all speeds providing the most secure link encryption.

●   Trustworthy systems: Cisco Trust Anchor Technologies provide a highly secure foundation for Cisco products. With Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches, Trust Anchor Technologies enable hardware and software authenticity assurance for supply chain trust and strong mitigation against man-in-the-middle compromise of software and firmware.Trust Anchor capabilities include:

     Image signing: Cryptographically signed images provide assurance that the firmware, BIOS, and other software are authentic and unmodified. As the system boots, the system’s software signatures are checked for integrity.

     Secure Boot: Secure Boot anchors the boot sequence chain of trust to immutable hardware, mitigating threats against a system’s foundational state and the software that is to be loaded, regardless of a user’s privilege level. It provides layered protection against the persistence of illicitly modified firmware.

     Cisco Trust Anchor module: This tamper-resistant, strong-cryptographic, single-chip solution provides hardware authenticity assurance to uniquely identify the product so that its origin can be confirmed to Cisco, providing assurance that the product is genuine.

1MAC Sec is not supported in hardware in C9400-SUP-1XL-Y

Resiliency and High Availability

Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches are designed for excellent nonstop communications with noninterrupted hardware switching. With Cisco IOS XE Software, you can continue to reap the benefit of this best-in-class resiliency in various ways.

●   Cross-Stack EtherChannel provides the ability to configure Cisco EtherChannel technology across different members of the stack for high resiliency.

●   IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) provides rapid spanning tree convergence independent of spanning tree timers and also offers the benefit of Layer 2 load balancing and distributed processing.

●   Per-VLAN Rapid Spanning Tree Plus (PVRST+) allows rapid spanning tree (IEEE 802.1w) reconvergence on a per-VLAN spanning tree basis, providing simpler configuration than MSTP. In both MSTP and PVRST+ modes, stacked units behave as a single spanning tree node.

●   Switch port autorecovery (“err-disable” recovery) automatically attempts to reactivate a link that is disabled because of a network error.

●   NSF/SSO offers continuous packet forwarding during supervisor-engine switchover. Information is fully synchronized between supervisor engines to allow the standby supervisor engine to immediately take over in subsecond time if the primary engine fails.

●   NSF/SSO dramatically improves the network reliability and availability in a Layer 2 or Layer 3 environment. NSF/SSO is essential for business-critical applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP). These features help ensure that VoIP calls are not dropped.

●   ISSU allows you to upgrade or downgrade complete Cisco IOS® Software images with minimal (less than 200 msec) to no disruption to the network when using a redundant Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series system with dual supervisor engines. Facilitating rapid, non-disruptive software upgrades for new line cards, new power supplies, new features, or bug fixes, ISSU offers continuous packet forwarding during the supervisor-engine switchover running different Cisco IOS Software releases.

●   In addition to redundant power supplies and fans, the Cisco Catalyst C9404R, C9407R, and C9410R chassis models support 1+1 supervisor-engine redundancy, using the Supervisor Engine. The primary supervisor engine is active and is responsible for normal system operation. The secondary supervisor engine serves as a standby, monitoring the operation of the primary supervisor engine. The resiliency features of the Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series prevent network outages that could result in lost business and revenue.

●   Apart from the features previously mentioned, Supervisor Engine-1 has resiliency built into its uplinks. Table 6 shows the uplink options on Supervisor Engine-1 and Supervisor Engine-1XL. Table 7 shows the uplink options on Supervisor Engine-1XL-Y.

Flexible NetFlow

●   Flexible NetFlow (FNF): Cisco IOS Software FNF is the next generation in flow visibility technology, allowing optimization of the network infrastructure, reducing operational costs, and improving capacity planning and security incident detection with increased flexibility and scalability. The supervisor is capable of up to 384,000 flow entries.

Application Visibility and Control

●   Advanced analytics: Superior FNF reports application performance and activities within the network to any supported NetFlow collector, such as Cisco Stealthwatch® or any compliant third-party tool.

QoS

●   Superior QoS: Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches offers Gigabit Ethernet speeds with intelligent services that keep traffic flowing smoothly, even at 10 times the normal network speed. Industry-leading mechanisms for cross-stack marking, classification, and scheduling deliver superior performance for data, voice, and video traffic at wire speed. This includes granular wireless bandwidth management and fair sharing, 802.1p Class of Service (CoS) and Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) field classification, Shaped Round Robin (SRR) scheduling, Committed Information Rate (CIR), and eight egress queues per port.

Smart operation

●   Bluetooth enabled: Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches have the hardware support to connect a Bluetooth dongle to your switch to use this wireless interface as a Management port. This port functions as an IP management interface and can be used to configure and troubleshoot using the WebUI, CLI, and transfer images and configurations.

●   WebUI: WebUI is an embedded GUI-based device-management tool that provides the ability to provision the device, to simplify device deployment and manageability, and to enhance the user experience. WebUI comes with the default image. There is no need to enable anything or install any license on the device. WebUI can be used by customers to build a configuration, monitor and troubleshoot the device without having to know how to use the CLI.

●   Efficient switch operation: Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches provide optimum power savings with Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) on the RJ-45 ports and low power operations for industry best-in-class power management and power consumption capabilities. The ports are capable of reduced power modes so that ports not in use can move into a lower power utilization state. Other efficient switch operation features are:

     The per-port power consumption command allows you to specify maximum power setting on an individual port.

     Per-port PoE power sensing measures the actual power being drawn, enabling more intelligent control of powered devices. The PoE MIB provides proactive visibility into power usage and lets you set different power level thresholds.

●   RFID tags: Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches have an embedded RFID tag which facilitates easy asset and inventory management using commercial RFID readers.

●   Blue Beacon: Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches support a blue beacon LED which allows easy identification of the switch being accessed.

High-Performance IP Routing

The Cisco Express Forwarding hardware routing architecture delivers extremely high-performance IP routing in the Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches, based on these features:

●   IP unicast routing protocols (static, Routing Information Protocol Version 1 [RIPv1], RIPv2, RIPng, and Open Shortest Path First [OSPF] Routed Access) are supported for small network routing applications with the Network Essentials stack. Equal-cost routing facilitates Layer 3 load balancing and redundancy across the stack.

●   Advanced IP unicast routing protocols (Full OSPF, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol [EIGRP], Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 [BGPv4], and Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System Version 4 [IS-ISv4]) are supported for load balancing and constructing scalable LANs. IPv6 routing using OSPFv3 and EIGRPv6 is supported in hardware for maximum performance.

●   Protocol-Independent Multicast (PIM) for IP multicast routing is supported, including PIM Sparse Mode (PIM SM), and Source-Specific Multicast (SSM).

●   IPv6 addressing is supported on interfaces with appropriate show commands for monitoring and troubleshooting.

Power over Ethernet Leadership

Cisco UPOE: PoE removes the need for wall power to each PoE-enabled device and eliminates the cost for additional electrical cabling and circuits that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments. Cisco UPOE extends the IEEE PoE+ standard to double the power per port to 60 watts. This facilitates delivery of network power to a broad range of devices requiring higher power. These devices include virtual desktop terminals, IP turrets, compact switches, building management gateways, LED lights, wireless access points and IP phones. The Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series supports Cisco UPOE, PoE+, and PoE, thereby addressing the largest range of network power needs.

Licensing

Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches introduce a new and simplified licensing package in the form of base and add-on licenses.

●   The base licensing package includes the Network Essentials and Network Advantage licensing options that are tied to the hardware. Between them, the base licensing packages cover switching fundamentals, management automation, troubleshooting, and advanced switching features. These base licenses are perpetual.

●   The subscription licensing package includes the Cisco DNA Premier, Cisco DNA Advantage and Cisco DNA Essentials options. In addition to on-box capabilities, the features available with this package provide Cisco innovations on the switch, as well as on Cisco DNA Center. The Cisco DNA add-on licenses are available as a subscription.

Subscription license consumption is easily determined by the package itself. While base licenses are always permanent and without an expiration date, add-on licenses have to be purchased for a 3, 5, or 7 year term (and hence are also known as term-based licenses). Table 8 shows the combinations of base and add-on licenses that must be purchased.

Licensing Combinations

Table 8 lists the Cisco DNA Essentials and Cisco DNA Advantage licensing combinations.

Cisco DNA Essentials 

Cisco DNA Advantage

Network Essentials

Network Advantage

No*

* At the time of Cisco DNA license renewal, the Cisco DNA Essentials license can be purchased to be used with Network Advantage.

Managing licenses with Smart Accounts: Creating Smart Accounts by using Cisco Smart Software Manager (SSM) enables you to order devices and licensing packages and also manage your software licenses from a centralized website. You can set up Cisco SSM to provide daily email alerts and to notify you of expiring add-on licenses that you want to renew.

You must order an add-on license in order to purchase a switch. When the license term expires, you can either renew the add-on license to continue using it or deactivate the add-on license and then reload the switch to continue operating with the base license capabilities.

Both the base and add-on licenses are also available for a 90-day evaluation period. An evaluation license is activated temporarily, without purchase. An expired evaluation license cannot be reactivated after reload.

Note:         You are not required to deploy Cisco DNA Center, just to use one of the add-on software packages.
