Product Review

The CISCO 15454-M-10X10G-LC is a high-capacity module featuring 10 ports with a 10 Gbps speed per port, suitable for environments demanding high bandwidth. It offers low latency, with figures ranging from 4 µs to 146 µs depending on the enabled features, ensuring efficient data transmission. However, its power consumption peaks at 147W under extreme conditions and the module occupies a single slot, which may limit expansion options in densely populated racks.


The CISCO 15454-M-10X10G-LC is a high-capacity, multirate optics card designed for the efficient scaling of network capacity. This card is engineered to support up to ten ports, each capable of 10 Gbps speeds, meeting the demands of high-bandwidth applications. It integrates seamlessly into networking solutions, optimizing performance and reliability. Key hardware specifications include: - The card operates on a single slot, making it a compact and efficient solution for expanding network capabilities without requiring significant space. This feature allows for the conservation of valuable rack space while enhancing system capacity. - It has a weight of 2.73 lbs, indicating a solid build that is designed for durability and long-term use in various networking environments. - The card is characterized by its power efficiency, consuming 133 W at a standard operating temperature of 25 °C with a -48 VDC power supply. Even at elevated temperatures up to 55 °C and a reduced voltage of -38 VDC, the maximum power consumption only slightly increases to 147 W, demonstrating its efficiency across a range of operating conditions. Performance and reliability are further underscored by its Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 171,199 hours, indicating a reliable performance over an extended period. The card's design accommodates a range of environmental conditions, with storage temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 70 °C and operating temperatures from 0 °C to 40 °C under normal conditions. Short-term operating temperature tolerance is slightly broader, from -5 °C to 55 °C, providing flexibility in various deployment scenarios. Latency is a critical consideration in networking hardware, and the CISCO 15454-M-10X10G-LC offers competitive latency figures across different configurations: - With G.709 and FEC (Forward Error Correction) disabled, latency is as low as 4 µs. - Enabling G.709 increases latency minimally to 7 ns, still maintaining high-speed data transmission. - Standard FEC settings adjust latency to 11 µs, and Enhanced FEC (EFEC) settings further to 146 µs, providing options for balancing speed with error correction based on user needs. Operational humidity ranges are designed to ensure reliability in diverse environments, from 5% to 85% noncondensing under normal conditions and up to 90% for short-term scenarios, ensuring consistent performance even in challenging humidity levels. Additional features include: -
  • Card LEDs for quick status checks, including Failure (FAIL), Active/Standby (ACT/STBY), and Signal Fail (SF), enhancing ease of maintenance and monitoring.
  • Per-port Client Port LEDs signal active input, allowing for real-time monitoring of port status.
  • Support for multirate operation, enabling a wide range of data rates to be supported, enhancing the card's versatility in different network architectures.
In summary, the CISCO 15454-M-10X10G-LC optics card is a high-performance, efficient solution designed for modern networking needs. It combines speed, reliability, and flexibility in a compact form factor, making it an ideal choice for expanding network capacity and supporting high-bandwidth applications.
