The next generation in switching technology. The Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3120 Series Switches are specifically designed to meet the rigors of the blade server based application infrastructure and provides HP BladeSystem customers with the ability to stack up to nine switches into a single virtual Switch. By emulating a redundant top-of-rack switch, HP BladeSystem c-Class users now have an integrated switching solution from Cisco Systems that optimizes uplinks per rack, reduces the number of switches managed and decreases network complexity. Both switches also provide Cisco resiliency, advanced security and enhanced manageability to the server edge while dramatically reducing cabling requirements. The Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3120 comes in two versions. The 3120G is a 1Gb switch with the flexibility to provide both copper and fiber uplinks. The 3120X has sixteen 1Gb downlinks and both 1Gb and 10Gb uplinks that can be used to aggregate bandwidth from multiple enclosures, or be used as a stand-alone switch in high bandwidth applications. The Cisco CBS3120 offers operational consistency with the rest of the industry leading Cisco Catalyst series of switches, using the familiar IOS Command Line Interface (CLI), consistent MIBs, and management tools like CiscoWorks. Furthermore, this consistency with the rest of the Cisco Catalyst series ensures end-to-end network service like QoS are consistently implemented across the network. Both switches can be upgraded with additional firmware add-ons available at time of purchase or through web downloads.
Wire speed switching on sixteen internal 1Gb ports, Wire Speed switching on four external 10/100/1000BASE-T ports. (Two of these ports can be used as cross-connects to provide failover protection), Wire speed switching on four , xternal 10/100/1000 SFP based ports that can be configured in addition to the four10/100/1000BASE-T ports to support Fiber SX/LX SFP modules from Cisco Systems, Two external 10Gb X2 based ports that support SR, LR, LRM and CX4 modules (Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3120X only), Two 64Gb stacking ports, One external console port
CiscoWorks Software that includes multilayer feature configurations such as routing protocols, ACLs, and QoS parameters, Compatible with Cisco Network Assistant, Supports both Embedded Events Manager (EEM) and Generic On-line Diagnostics (GOLD), IOS CLI support providing a common user interface and command set with all Cisco routers and Cisco Catalyst desktop switches, The Catalyst Blade Switch 3120 series supports an embedded Remote Monitoring (RMON) software agent for enhanced traffic management, monitoring and analysis.
VLAN - Virtual Local Area Network is a logical network topology configured on top of a physical network topology which conserves bandwidth and improves security by limiting traffic to specific groups of devices, Supports Cisco's Identity-Based Networking Services (IBNS) which prevents unauthorized network access and insures that users get only their designated privileges, Compatible with Cisco Secure Access Control Server (ACS) so that user security profiles and authentication follow the user regardless of where they connect on the network, Access Control Lists (ACL's) are maintained in hardware for maximum performance and can be used to guard against denial-of-service and other attacks 802.1x Port Security recognizes the MAC address of the device connecting to it and will set rights or limitations based on predefined security thresholds.
Up to nine 3120 switches can be combined into a single virtual stack. Switches can be managed as a single virtual switch with a single IP address and single routing domain. 64 Gb stacking fabric provides flexible and redundant ring architecture eliminating any single point of failure.
