Product Review

The CISCO 15454-MRC-I-12 offers a versatile range of supported payloads including VT1.5 through VT2, and STS-1 to STS-48c, making it a flexible choice for diverse networking needs. However, its maximum power draw of 38 W with SFP optics may be a concern for energy-conscious deployments. Additionally, the card's operational temperature range from -5 °C to 55 °C and support for both high and low humidity levels ensure reliable performance across various environmental conditions.


The CISCO 15454-MRC-I-12 is a module designed for intra-office applications, functioning within the 15454 Multiservice Provisioning Platform to deliver exceptional performance in data transmission. This module is equipped with 12 ports, all of which are SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) type, providing flexibility in the choice of fiber optic or copper connections based on the specific needs of the network infrastructure. This hardware is compatible with the SONET system and supports a wide range of payloads including VT1.5, VT2, STS-1, -3c, -6c, -9c, -12c, -24c, and -48c. These features ensure the module can handle various data rates, making it versatile for different types of network traffic and protocols. The unit's diagnostic and status monitoring capabilities are indicated through multiple LEDs for failure, active/standby status, and signal fail, alongside port-specific LEDs for more granular feedback on connectivity and performance. In terms of power consumption, the module draws a maximum of 25 watts without SFP optics and 38 watts with SFP optics installed. This efficiency in power usage is critical for maintaining operational cost-effectiveness in large-scale deployments. The module's operational parameters are broad, with an operating temperature range from -5 °C to 55 °C and humidity tolerance from 5% to 95% non-condensing, ensuring reliability across various environmental conditions. For storage, it can withstand temperatures from -40 °C to 65 °C and the same humidity range as operational conditions, guaranteeing its durability during non-operational periods. The module occupies a single card slot, with a weight of 2.68 lbs, indicating its compact and lightweight design for easy integration into existing network frameworks. It is designed to work seamlessly with shelf assemblies including SA-HD, SA-ANSI, SA-NEBS3E, and SA-HD_DDR, providing a range of options for physical installation. Cross-connect compatibility extends to XC-VXC-10G, XC-10G, and XC-VT cards, with specific slot compatibilities designated for varying capacity requirements. This ensures that the module can be integrated into diverse network architectures, accommodating different bandwidth needs. The CISCO 15454-MRC-I-12 requires CISCO ONS Release 6.0 or later for software support, ensuring that the module benefits from the latest features and security updates.
  • Supports a broad payload range, enhancing its adaptability for various network configurations.
