Product Review

The Cisco ME-3400E-24TS-M switch, equipped with 24 Ethernet 10/100 ports and 2 dual-purpose 10/100/1000 and SFP uplinks, offers flexibility in connectivity and high-speed data forwarding at a rate of 6.5 Mpps, suitable for demanding network environments. Its design allows for redundancy with slots for two field-replaceable units (FRUs) for the power supply and fan unit, enhancing reliability with a mean time between failure (MTBF) of up to 462,163 hours when two power supplies are used. However, the operating temperature range is limited to 0 °C to 65 °C, which may restrict deployment in environments with more extreme temperatures.


The Cisco ME-3400E-24TS-M is designed for service providers, offering a comprehensive solution that meets the rigorous demands of the access layer in metropolitan-area networks. This device is equipped with 24 Ethernet 10/100 ports and 2 dual-purpose uplinks that support both 10/100/1000 Ethernet and SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) connections, providing flexible options for network connectivity and uplink strategies. Key hardware specifications of the Cisco ME-3400E-24TS-M include: - Two slots for field-replaceable modular power supply and fan units, ensuring high availability and easy serviceability. - An operating temperature range that supports environments from 0 °C to 60 °C with a single field-replaceable unit (FRU) and extends up to 65 °C with two FRUs, accommodating a wide range of deployment scenarios. - Four external alarm contacts for enhanced monitoring and alerting capabilities, crucial for maintaining network integrity and performance. This switch delivers a forwarding rate of 6.5 million packets per second (Mpps), ensuring efficient handling of traffic without bottlenecks. It supports two Cisco IOS software feature image options, enabling customization and scalability to meet specific network requirements. An Ethernet management console provides convenient setup and management, simplifying network administration tasks. The device comes with a choice of AC or DC power supplies, catering to various power infrastructure requirements. Its compact dimensions (1.75 x 17.5 x 9.3 inches, extending to 9.8 inches in depth with AC or DC power supply attached) and a weight of 6.4 pounds (2.9 kg) make it suitable for space-constrained environments. The ME-3400E-24TS-M demonstrates exceptional reliability, with a mean time between failure (MTBF) of 245,917 hours with one AC or DC power supply, and 462,163 hours with two power supplies, ensuring long-term operational stability. Power consumption is optimized for efficiency, with typical usage at 36W (40W maximum) under a single AC power supply and slightly higher requirements when additional power supplies are used or when operating under DC power. This translates to a typical thermal output of 123 Btus per hour with one AC, increasing to 164 Btus per hour with two DC power supplies, indicating a design that balances performance with energy consumption. In summary, the Cisco ME-3400E-24TS-M is a feature-rich, scalable, and reliable networking solution designed for service provider access layers. Its hardware specifications, including flexible uplink options, field-replaceable units, and efficient power management, make it a versatile choice for deploying in a variety of metropolitan-area network environments.
