Product Review

The Cisco NIM-8-1GE-RJ45 module offers eight slots for 1GE Copper connections, catering to networks requiring high-density, wired connectivity. With 32 GB DDR4 RAM and 120 GB internal NAND storage, it supports substantial data processing and storage capabilities. However, the lack of Power over Ethernet (PoE) and 4G LTE support might limit its applicability in environments requiring integrated power for devices or wireless WAN connectivity.


The Cisco NIM-8-1GE-RJ45 module is designed to cater to high-speed networking demands with its eight-slot configuration, tailored specifically for 1GE Copper connections. This module, compatible with AC-powered routers, enhances network infrastructure by offering a blend of performance and scalability. It operates efficiently with 32 GB of DDR4 RAM, ensuring smooth data processing and management. Despite lacking an external SD card slot, the module compensates with an ample 120 GB of internal NAND storage, providing sufficient space for software, configurations, and data. Connectivity options are versatile, featuring two external USB host ports that support USB 2.0 Type A, facilitating easy peripheral connections and file transfers. For network management and setup, the module includes a serial console port (RJ-45 at 115.2 Kbps) and a management Ethernet port (RJ-45 10/100/1000), ensuring reliable local and remote access. The absence of PoE, 4G LTE, and a USB console port highlights the module's focused design on delivering core networking functionalities. The hardware is engineered for reliability, incorporating hot swap power supply options and supporting redundant power supplies, minimizing downtime and ensuring continuous operation. Cooling is efficiently managed by four hot swap fans, maintaining optimal performance by directing airflow from front to back. This ensures the module operates within safe temperature ranges, even under heavy usage. Electrical specifications include an input AC voltage range of 90 to 264 Vrms and an AC input line frequency of 47 to 63 Hz, accommodating a wide range of power supplies and reducing concerns about compatibility with local power grids. Its 1 RU rack height and dimensions (4.4 cm in height, 43.8 cm in width, and 58 cm in depth) make it a compact yet powerful addition to any rack setup, weighing in at 37 lbs. The rack mount accessory kit, included with the module, facilitates easy and secure installation. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • 32 GB DDR4 RAM for efficient data processing
  • -
  • 120 GB internal NAND storage for ample data storage capacity
  • -
  • Hot swap and redundant power supply support for enhanced reliability
  • The Cisco NIM-8-1GE-RJ45's design and specifications make it a suitable choice for businesses looking to expand their network's capabilities with a focus on durability, reliability, and performance. Its comprehensive connectivity options, along with substantial memory and storage, ensure that it can handle the demands of modern networking environments. The emphasis on power supply flexibility and thermal management further underscores its suitability for critical applications where uptime and stability are paramount.
