Cisco 10 Gigabit Ethernet – An Overview
Cisco 10 gigabit Ethernet is a latest launch by the company which provides great unique features for small and medium sized enterprises and businesses. 10 gigabit Ethernet is basically a computer networking solution which was launched in 2002. It is a form of Ethernet which is ten times faster than traditional gigabit Ethernet. The data rate of 10 Gbit/second can be transferred easily at the faster speed which saves good deal of time for businesses.
The high quality Cisco WS-X6716-10G-3C 16-port Ethernet is a latest module that comes with a distributed forwarding card 3C. This Cisco 10 gig Ethernet module comes with great flexibility for customers and offers feasibility to operate on oversubscription mode as well as performance mode.
WS-X6716-10G-3C also offers features like 1GB DRAM which is pre installed and offers great importance to the users. Not only the best features but also it offers environmental benefits as it comes with very low power consuming feature.
The best part of using Cisco 10 Gig Ethernet module is it’s supported in Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series chassis. When working with E-series chassis the optics that are supported are X2-10GB-LR, X2-10GB-ER, X2-10GB-LX4, X2-10GB-LRM, X2-10GB-SR and X2-10GB-CX4. It has the optimal base module that supports optics ranging to 16 pluggable X2 optics.
It also has the 40-Gbps connection because of which it is said to be the 4:1 oversubscribed. Other advantageous part is the power consumption or usage of energy per port is made to be very low as compared to other traditional ports or Ethernets.
Other positive part of WS-X6716-10G-3C is that when it’s used with E series chassis it offers very fast switch fabric failover time of ~50 ms. Both 16-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet module and the 8-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet module offers this feature and thus enhance the superb availability of the network.
