Product Review

The CISCO 15454-ML-MR-10 offers versatile connectivity options with its 10 SFP connectors, supporting port speeds of 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1000 Mbps, catering to diverse network requirements. The module excels in delivering advanced features such as IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol, 1:1 Multirate Layer 2 mapping, and comprehensive traffic regulation capabilities, enhancing network efficiency and reliability. However, it lacks support for transparent bridging and multicast priority queuing classes, which may limit its application in environments where these features are crucial.


The CISCO 15454-ML-MR-10 is a versatile multirate layer 2 networking module designed for diverse networking environments. It supports a wide range of data rates, including 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, and 1000 Mbps, making it suitable for various network demands. This flexibility is achieved through its ten SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) connectors, which allow for easy adaptation to changing network requirements. Key features of the CISCO 15454-ML-MR-10 include: - Mapping 1:1 Multirate Layer 2, providing efficient network utilization and flexibility in data handling. - Support for IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol, enhancing bandwidth and network reliability through the aggregation of multiple network links. - The capability for POS (Packet over SONET/SDH) Virtual Ports, LEX (Local Exchange) or Point-to-Point connections, and VCAT (Virtual Concatenation) with SW-LCAS (Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme), offering a wide range of connectivity options and efficient bandwidth management. The device supports encapsulation via Framed Generic Framing Procedure, ensuring compatibility and efficient data transmission across different network types. It is also equipped with IEEE 802.1Q-in-Q VLAN Tunneling, enabling network segmentation and improved security and traffic management. Traffic regulation introduced by clients is a notable feature, ensuring that network resources are optimally utilized and that performance levels are maintained. The device also boasts low circumference-independent jitter, contributing to the quality of service by minimizing delays and variability in data transmission. Significant to the CISCO 15454-ML-MR-10’s design is its capacity for excess information rate bandwidth transmission, allowing the network to accommodate bursts of data beyond the allocated bandwidth, enhancing network flexibility and efficiency. This is complemented by features such as concurrent clockwise and counterclockwise transmissions, bandwidth reallocation on nonoverlapping segments, and bandwidth reclamation, all of which contribute to optimal bandwidth utilization and network performance. Spatial and temporal bandwidth reuse mechanisms are incorporated, maximizing network capacity and efficiency. Additionally, IP host functionality extends its utility, enabling direct communication with IP networks without requiring separate routers. The module does not support transparent bridging or multicast priority queuing classes but makes up for these with advanced features like input policing and AAA/RADIUS relay mode, enhancing network security and management. Remote monitoring capabilities are also included, allowing for easy management and troubleshooting of the network. Overall, the CISCO 15454-ML-MR-10 is a comprehensive solution for network connectivity and management, offering a wide range of features designed to enhance network performance, flexibility, and efficiency. Its support for various data rates and protocols, combined with advanced bandwidth and security features, makes it an ideal choice for network administrators looking to optimize their networking environments.
