The flagship of the company's fixed- switching portfolio, the Cisco Catalyst 3750-X and 3560-X are enterprise-class stackable and standalone switches capable of delivering high-performance switching with 10 Gigabit Ethernet, full PoE+ on all ports and a flexible smart uplink module
. In addition, Cisco has unveiled the StackPower, an industry- first, power-interconnect technology that brings power resiliency to a stack of Catalyst 3750-X Series switches.
Taking advantage of the optional VIM2 slot, which is 40 Gigabit Ethernet ready, the Summit X480 supports a four port 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink module
or a stacking support module which provides 40Gbps or 128Gbps throughput.
It comprises an uplink module
, located near a boundary-scan controller and a downlink module embedded in the system under test.
supply and Brocade FCX uplink modules
are available now at list prices of $1,100
Optional four-port GbE and two-port 10GbE uplink modules
with pluggable optics are also available for supporting high-speed connections to other switches or upstream devices such as routers.
The first switch, the VH-2402-L3 is a wire speed fixed configuration Layer 3 Ethernet switch providing 24 RJ45 ports of wire speed 10/100BaseTX connectivity and one option slot for 1000BaseSX/LX or 1000BaseT uplink modules
Madge's 8600 Series Token Ring switches integrate with a broad range of backbone networks through the use of optional uplink modules
for ATM 155, 100 Mbps Token Ring and 10/100 Ethernet.
The ES3526-PoE L2/L4 Fast Ethernet stackable switch has 24 10/ 100BASE-T/TX auto MDI/ MDIX ports and two combo ports for fiber or copper gigabit uplink modules
. Fully compliant with IEEE802.3f standards, its power-over-Ethernet capability allows wireless access points, VoIP handsets or any network component to be placed wherever they can best carry out their functions, regardless of the placement of power sources.
