Product Review

The CISCO 15454-GE-XPE offers substantial connectivity with 20 GbE SFP ports and a comprehensive MAC address table supporting up to 32,000 entries, facilitating efficient network management and scalability. However, its power consumption is relatively high, with a typical draw of 132W and a maximum of 137W, which may impact operational costs in large-scale deployments. Additionally, its robust QoS functions and support for Ethernet aggregation rings enhance network performance and reliability, though the complexity of these features may require advanced technical knowledge for optimal configuration and maintenance.


The CISCO 15454-GE-XPE is a high-capacity Ethernet card designed for dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) applications, offering an efficient solution for expanding network bandwidth while ensuring reliable service delivery. This product is equipped with 20 GBE SFP ports, allowing for flexible connectivity options and easy integration into existing networks. The inclusion of 4 pluggable modules enhances the card's adaptability to different network requirements. One of the key features of the CISCO 15454-GE-XPE is its extensive MAC address table, capable of holding up to 32,000 entries. This large capacity ensures efficient handling of network traffic and supports a high number of concurrent connections. The card's advanced Quality of Service (QoS) functions, including the ability to add double tags, translate VLAN tags, and implement per-CVLAN-to-SVLAN ingress class of service, provide the tools necessary for managing traffic priorities and ensuring optimal performance for critical applications. Ethernet aggregation rings are supported by the CISCO 15454-GE-XPE, enabling the creation of resilient network architectures that can maintain service continuity even in the event of link failures. This feature is crucial for networks requiring high availability and minimal downtime. The device also supports a wide range of VLAN IDs, up to 4096, allowing for extensive network segmentation and improved security. The hardware's status and activity can be easily monitored through various LEDs, including card LEDs indicating failure, active or standby status, and signal fail, alongside client port LEDs and DWDM port LEDs. This visual feedback simplifies troubleshooting and helps ensure prompt resolution of any issues. Power efficiency is another standout aspect of the CISCO 15454-GE-XPE, with a typical power draw of 132 W and a maximum power draw of 137 W. This efficiency contributes to lower operating costs and a reduced environmental impact. The card operates within a wide temperature range, from -5 °C to 55 °C, and can withstand humidity levels from 5% to 95% (noncondensing), ensuring reliable performance in various environmental conditions. The device's optical capabilities are notable, with support for wavelengths ranging from 1528.77 nm to 1561.41 nm. This wide range allows for flexible deployment in DWDM networks, accommodating different transmission distances and bandwidth requirements. Furthermore, the CISCO 15454-GE-XPE features 8 queues per port, including 1 strict priority queue and 7 weighted round-robin queues, enabling precise control over traffic handling and prioritization. Other significant capabilities include: - Per-VLAN MAC address enable-disable, providing enhanced security and network management options. - Ingress port-based rate limiting, allowing for granular control over inbound traffic to prevent network congestion. - Per-stacked VLAN based ingress rate limiting, offering additional flexibility in managing traffic flows and preserving network performance. Overall, the CISCO 15454-GE-XPE is a Layer 2 switch card that excels in DWDM applications, delivering a comprehensive set of features designed to meet the demands of modern networks. Its combination of high port density, advanced QoS functions, and resilient design makes it a valuable addition to any network infrastructure looking to enhance capacity and reliability.
