- Web GUI interface only
- Through a user-friendly web device manager, the Cisco IE 1000 provides easy out-of-the-box configuration and simplified operational manageability to deliver advanced and secure industrial networks.
- BPDU Guard
- The STP PortFast BPDU guard enhancement allows network designers to enforce the STP domain borders and keep the active topology predictable. The devices behind the ports that have STP PortFast enabled are not able to influence the STP topology. At the reception of BPDUs, the BPDU guard operation disables the port that has PortFast configured. The BPDU guard transitions the port into errdisable state, and a message appears on the console.
- DHCP Server
- The DHCP Server feature is a full DHCP Server implementation that assigns and manages IP addresses from specified address pools within the switch to DHCP clients.
- Ether Channel LACP
- Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) allows the creation of Ethernet channeling with devices that conform to IEEE 802.3ad.
- IGMP is an IPv4 protocol that a host uses to request multicast data for a particular group. Using the information obtained through IGMP, the software maintains a list of multicast group or channel memberships on a per-interface basis. The systems that receive these IGMP packets send multicast data that they receive for requested groups or channels out the network segment of the known receivers.
- HTTP/HTTPs, SSH, and Telnet
- The Cisco IE 1000 Switch provides connectivity via HTTP/HTTPs, SSH and Telnet.
- MST spanning tree mode
MST maps multiple VLANs into a spanning tree instance, with each instance having a spanning tree topology independent of other spanning tree instances. This architecture provides multiple forwarding paths for data traffic, enables load balancing, and reduces the number of STP instances required to support a large number of VLANs. MST improves the fault tolerance of the network because a failure in one instance (forwarding path) does not affect other instances (forwarding paths).
MST provides rapid convergence through explicit handshaking as each MST instance uses the IEEE 802.1w standard, which eliminates the 802.1D forwarding delay and quickly transitions root bridge ports and designated ports to the forwarding state.
- QOS Priority port
- The Priority Port feature allows the end user to specify a port which is connected to high priority end devices (eg: IP phone, or PLC), as a Priority Port. Once the Priority Port is configured, all the Ethernet packets received from that end device will have higher priority than packets received from other end devices connected to the IE1000.
- PoE Management
- PoE Management Modes:
Auto-LLDP: use LLDP for max power draw; reserves what is negotiated
Auto-PD Class: PD class determines max power draw; reserves the class max
Static: max power determined by value in ‘max power field’; reserves based on max power field
You can use the port security feature to restrict input to an interface by limiting and identifying MAC addresses of the end devices that are allowed to access the port. If you limit the number of MAC addresses to one and assign a single MAC address, the end device attached to that port is assured the full bandwidth of the port.
If a port is configured as a secure port and the maximum number of MAC addresses is reached, when the MAC address of a end device attempting to access the port is different from any of the identified MAC addresses, a security violation occurs.
- SNMP v2/v3, trap
The switch supports SNMPv2 and SNMPv3 traps.
SNMP traps enable an agent to notify the management station of significant events by way of an unsolicited SNMP message.
- STP port fast
Port Fast immediately brings an interface configured as an access or trunk port to the forwarding state from a blocking state, bypassing the listening and learning states.
You can use Port Fast on interfaces connected to a single end device or server, to allow those devices to immediately connect to the network, rather than waiting for the spanning tree to converge.
Interfaces connected to a single end device or server should not receive bridge protocol data units (BPDUs). An interface with Port Fast enabled goes through the normal cycle of spanning-tree status changes when the switch is restarted.
- Virtual LAN (VLAN)
A VLAN is a group of devices on one or more LANs that are configured to communicate as if they were attached to the same wire, when in fact they are located on a number of different LAN segments. Because VLANs are based on logical instead of physical connections, they are extremely flexible.
VLANs define broadcast domains in a Layer 2 network. A broadcast domain is the set of all devices that will receive broadcast frames originating from any device within the set. Broadcast domains are typically bounded by routers because routers do not forward broadcast frames. Layer 2 switches create broadcast domains based on the configuration of the switch. Switches are multiport bridges that allow you to create multiple broadcast domains. Each broadcast domain is like a distinct virtual bridge within a switch.
- Alarm (PoE switches only)
The switch software monitors switch conditions on a per port or a switch basis. If the conditions present on the switch or a port do not match the set parameters, the switch software triggers an alarm or a system message.
The Cisco IE 1000 PoE(+) switches have one external alarm port and supports one output relay.
