Product Review

The Cisco SCE8000 excels in offering a diverse range of connectivity options, including 2/4-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet across various fiber types and distances, as well as 8/16-port Gigabit Ethernet, catering to extensive network infrastructure requirements. However, its substantial weight of 42.25 Kg and large physical dimensions may pose challenges for space-constrained installations. Additionally, the SCE8000's power consumption, reaching up to 1600W for two SCM blades configurations, necessitates careful consideration of power management and cooling in densely populated data centers.


The Cisco SCE8000 is a high-capacity network device designed to deliver comprehensive traffic management and monitoring. It is equipped with advanced hardware specifications to handle the demands of modern networking environments. This device is optimized for 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections, supporting both single and multimode fiber across various wavelengths to accommodate different network infrastructure needs. Key hardware features include: - Link Type: 10 Gigabit Ethernet, ensuring high-speed data transfer and connectivity. - Ports: Available in configurations of 2 or 4 ports, providing flexibility for network setup. - Links: Supports 1 or 2 links, allowing for redundancy and increased data throughput. Management is facilitated through 2 x 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet RJ-45 interfaces, ensuring efficient device setup and monitoring. For local management, there are 2 x RS-232 RJ-45 console interfaces. Additionally, the device includes 2 x RJ-11 optical bypass interfaces that enable software activation of the optical bypass, enhancing network reliability. The SCE8000 supports a variety of interface configurations to meet diverse networking requirements. These configurations include 2/4-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet with single-mode fiber long-reach (LR) at 1310nm, extended-reach (ER) at 1550nm, long-haul (ZR) at 1550nm, and multimode fiber at 850nm. For environments requiring higher port density, 8/16-port Gigabit Ethernet interfaces are available with single-mode fiber at 1310nm and 1550nm, as well as multimode fiber at 850nm. Weighing 42.25 Kg (92.95 lb) when fully populated (excluding optical bypass), the SCE8000 is designed for durability and ease of installation. Its dimensions are 8.75 inches in height, 17.5 inches in width, and 21.75 inches in depth, making it suitable for standard rack mounting in data centers. The operating temperature range is from 32 to 104°F (0 to 40°C), with a storage temperature range of -4 to 149°F (-20 to 65°C). It operates within a relative humidity of 10 to 85% and can be stored in conditions of 5 to 95% humidity (noncondensing). This ensures that the device can perform reliably in a wide range of environmental conditions. Power requirements for the SCE8000 are versatile, supporting AC power inputs of 110 (85 to 130) or 240 (170 to 260) VAC at 47 to 63Hz, and DC power inputs of -41 to -72 VDC. The device consumes 1000W / 3415 Btus in a single SCM blade configuration and 1600W / 5464 Btus in a dual SCM blade configuration, indicating its power efficiency and the capacity to handle intensive data processing tasks. Cooling and airflow within the SCE8000 are maintained by redundant cooling fans, ensuring the device operates within optimal temperature ranges even under heavy load.
