Product Review

The Cisco ASA5585-NM-8-10GE offers eight SFP/SFP+ ports, providing flexibility for high-speed connectivity and the ability to support both Active/Active and Active/Standby configurations, enhancing its appeal for high-availability network setups. However, its noise level at 65 dBA may be a concern in environments where minimizing operational noise is a priority. Additionally, while the device is designed for rack mounting and operates within a broad range of temperatures and humidity levels, its power consumption and heat dissipation could pose challenges for energy efficiency and cooling requirements in densely packed data centers.


The Cisco ASA5585-NM-8-10GE is a network module designed to enhance the capabilities of Cisco ASA 5500-X Series appliances. It provides eight ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity through SFP/SFP+ interfaces, catering to high-bandwidth requirements. This module supports both Active/Active and Active/Standby availability modes, ensuring continuous network uptime and reliability. Its design is rack-mountable, fitting a standard 19-inch rack with a 2 RU form factor, making it suitable for organized and efficient data center deployment. Key hardware specifications include an operating temperature range from 0 °C to 40 °C and a storage temperature range from -40 °C to 70 °C. It operates efficiently within a wide range of humidity, maintaining functionality from 10% to 90% non-condensing during operation, and from 5% to 95% non-condensing during storage. Despite its power, the module produces a noise level of 65 dBA, considered moderate in data center environments. The ASA5585-NM-8-10GE is designed for durability and long-term use, capable of being stored at altitudes up to 30,000 feet. It requires a nominal line voltage of 100 to 240 VAC and operates efficiently within a frequency range of 50 to 60 Hz. Power consumption is optimized for efficiency, with a maximum current draw of 9A at 100 VAC and 4.5 A at 240 VAC, leading to a peak power utilization of 370 W and a steady state power consumption of 320 W. Heat dissipation is significant but manageable, with maximum ratings of 3960 BTU/hr at 100 VAC and 5450 BTU/hr at 200 VAC, ensuring the system remains within safe operational temperatures. The physical dimensions of the Cisco ASA5585-NM-8-10GE include a height of 3.47 inches, a width of 19 inches, and a depth of 26.5 inches, with a total weight of 50 lbs. This compact size and weight make it manageable in various installation environments.
