Product Review

The Cisco ME-3400G-12CS-A switch offers 12 dual-purpose ports, combining 10/100/1000 Ethernet and SFP capabilities, making it versatile for various networking needs. With a forwarding rate of 26 Mpps and support for multiple software image options, it is designed for efficient data handling and customization. However, its operational noise level at 48.8 dBA and a power consumption profile that includes a dual redundant power supply may be concerns in environments where noise and energy usage are critical factors.


The Cisco ME-3400G-12CS-A is a versatile networking device designed to meet the needs of service providers by offering advanced features in a compact form. This device integrates multiple layers of network functionality, making it a suitable choice for a variety of applications. Its hardware specifications are tailored to deliver high performance and reliability for demanding network environments. At the core, the device features 12 dual-purpose ports, which allow for flexibility in connection types. These ports can operate as either 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports for traditional copper network cables or as SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) slots for fiber optic connections. This dual-purpose functionality ensures the device can adapt to different network architectures and media types, enhancing its utility across various deployment scenarios. The inclusion of 4 SFP Gigabit Ethernet and 100BASE-X ports further expands its connectivity options. These ports are designed for high-speed network connections, supporting both Gigabit Ethernet for high-throughput applications and 100BASE-X for compatibility with existing network infrastructures. Key hardware specifications include: - A forwarding rate of 26 Mpps (million packets per second), which ensures efficient handling of network traffic, minimizing latency and maximizing throughput. - Two redundant power supplies, enhancing the device's reliability and uptime by providing a backup in case one power source fails. - A compact form factor of 1 RU (Rack Unit), making it easy to integrate into existing network racks and saving valuable space in data centers. The device operates efficiently within a broad range of environmental conditions. It supports operating temperatures from 0 °C to 50 °C and can function at altitudes up to 13,000 feet. This wide operating range is complemented by its ability to maintain performance in environments with relative humidity levels between 5% and 95% (non-condensing). For storage, it withstands temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 70 °C and can be stored at altitudes up to 15,000 feet. Sound levels are kept low with a sound pressure of 48.8 dBA and a sound power of 4.8 Bels, ensuring minimal noise disruption in work environments. The device's electromagnetic emissions compliance includes standards such as FCC Part 15 Class A and EN 55022B Class A, ensuring it does not interfere with other electronic equipment. Safety and regulatory compliance are paramount, with certifications including UL 60950 Third Edition and CE Marking. The device also meets stringent NEBS (Network Equipment Building System) criteria, including GR-63-CORE and GR-1089-CORE: Level 3, Type 2, indicating its resilience and durability in various operating conditions. In summary, the Cisco ME-3400G-12CS-A combines flexible connectivity options with high performance, reliability, and compliance with safety and emissions standards. Its compact 1 RU form factor and support for redundant power supplies make it a valuable asset for service providers seeking a scalable and efficient networking solution.
