Product Review

The Cisco ME-3400EG-12CS-M switch offers a versatile mix of 12 dual-purpose 10/100/1000 and SFP ports, along with 4 SFP uplinks, catering effectively to diverse networking needs. However, its forwarding rate of 26 Mpps might not meet the requirements of high-throughput environments, potentially limiting its application in more demanding network scenarios. The unit's operational temperature range and dual slots for field-replaceable units (FRUs) enhance its reliability and adaptability in various installation conditions, though the power consumption could be a concern for energy-conscious deployments.


The Cisco ME-3400EG-12CS-M is a versatile networking device designed to meet the rigorous demands of service provider networks. With a forward-thinking design, this unit offers a comprehensive set of features tailored for Ethernet access and aggregation layers. The hardware specifications highlight its capacity to support high-speed data, voice, and video services, making it an ideal solution for a wide range of applications. At the core of its design, the device features 12 dual-purpose 10/100/1000 ports that can be used with either RJ-45 connectors for copper cabling or SFP modules for fiber optic connections, providing flexibility in network deployments. Additionally, it includes 4 SFP uplink ports designed to facilitate high-speed connections to the backbone network. The presence of dual slots for field-replaceable units (FRUs) for both the modular power supply and the fan unit ensures the system's reliability and easy maintenance, enhancing its operational longevity. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • Operating temperature ranges from 0 °C to 60 °C with a single FRU and extends up to 65 °C with two FRUs, ensuring reliable performance under various environmental conditions.
  • A forwarding rate of 26 Mpps (million packets per second), which enables efficient traffic handling and minimizes latency.
  • Four external alarm contacts provide essential alerts for network management and security.
The device supports two Cisco IOS Software Feature Image Options, allowing for customization and scalability according to network requirements. This flexibility ensures that the system can adapt to evolving service provider needs. The integrated Ethernet management console facilitates straightforward setup and monitoring, simplifying network management tasks. From a power supply perspective, the Cisco ME-3400EG-12CS-M is designed to operate with both AC and DC power sources, accommodating diverse deployment scenarios. Power consumption varies with the configuration, with a single AC power supply consuming 50W (typical) and up to 80W (maximum). When equipped with two AC power supplies, the typical consumption increases slightly to 60W, with a maximum of 95W. For DC configurations, power usage ranges from 60W (typical) to 99W (maximum) with a single supply and from 70W (typical) to 115W (maximum) with two supplies. These power specifications ensure efficient operation, minimizing operational costs. Physically, the unit measures 1.75 x 17.5 x 12.0 inches, extending to 12.5 inches in depth when including either AC or DC power supply options. It weighs 8.5 lb, making it compact and manageable for rack mounting in various environments. In summary, the Cisco ME-3400EG-12CS-M is engineered to deliver high performance, flexibility, and reliability for service providers. Its comprehensive feature set, combined with flexible power options and efficient design, makes it a valuable asset for any network aiming to deliver high-quality Ethernet services.
