Product Review

The CISCO 15454-CE-MR-10 offers a high-speed performance of 20 Gbps and supports L1 packet mapping and LCAS, making it suitable for carrier-grade Ethernet private line services and ensuring high-availability transport. However, the lack of a functional console port might limit direct hardware management and troubleshooting capabilities. Additionally, its comprehensive support for Ethernet standards, including IEEE 802.3x for flow control and frame buffering, along with the capability to handle jumbo frames up to 9600 bytes, ensures compatibility and efficiency in handling large data volumes across networks.


The CISCO 15454-CE-MR-10 module is designed to deliver high-capacity and scalable Ethernet private line services, ensuring high-availability transport for demanding network environments. This module, compatible with both ONS 15454 and ONS 15454 SDH platforms, embodies a mix of features tailored for efficient data transportation and network management. At the heart of its capabilities, the module supports a throughput of 20 Gbps, accommodating the bandwidth needs of intensive applications. It is equipped with 10 Ethernet ports, compliant with IEEE 802 standards, capable of operating at 10/100/1000 Mbps, which offers flexibility in connecting a variety of devices and supports the integration into diverse network topologies. The device excels in the precise mapping of Ethernet frames into the SONET/SDH payload, a feature that is pivotal for maintaining the integrity and efficiency of data transmission across the network. This mapping capability is complemented by Layer 1 packet mapping and support for Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAS), enhancing the module's adaptability to fluctuating network demands. Key hardware specifications include: - IEEE 802.3x flow control: Implements symmetric flow control and frame buffering, mitigating congestion and ensuring smooth data transmission. - Jumbo frames support: Handles frame sizes from 64 to 9600 bytes, optimizing network performance and efficiency. - End-to-End Ethernet link integrity: Guarantees reliable connectivity with accuracy within 200 ms for the link integrity timer. Moreover, the module offers advanced features such as selective autonegotiation on Ethernet ports, facilitating optimal link operation by negotiating the best possible transmission mode. This is critical for maintaining network performance and compatibility across different hardware. The CISCO 15454-CE-MR-10 also prioritizes data traffic efficiently, supporting IEEE 802.1Q CoS thresholds and IP thresholds, with a wide range of priorities in IP ToS (0 to 255), allowing for detailed traffic prioritization and management. This ensures that critical data is transmitted with the required urgency, enhancing the overall network performance and user experience. Remote monitoring support stands out as a significant feature, enabling network administrators to proactively manage and troubleshoot the network, ensuring high uptime and reliability. The absence of a functional console port underscores the module's design focus on modern network management practices, where remote access and configuration are paramount. The device's application in providing carrier-grade Ethernet private line services is underscored by its support for Ethernet Drop and Continue in CCAT circuits, which allows for the flexible and efficient use of network resources, further enhancing the module's utility in complex networking scenarios. In conclusion, the CISCO 15454-CE-MR-10 module offers a comprehensive set of features for network management and efficiency, including high-speed data transfer, advanced traffic management, and robust data integrity measures, making it a versatile choice for network administrators aiming to optimize their Ethernet services and infrastructure.
