Security Features

The Cisco A900-IMA-8Z 8-Port 10GbE SFP+ Expansion Module provides a range of security features to protect the network and its data. Here are some of the security features of this module:

  • Access Control: The module supports access control features, such as MAC address filtering, VLAN tagging, and port security, to prevent unauthorized access to the network and its devices.
  • Authentication and Authorization: The module supports authentication and authorization protocols, such as IEEE 802.1x and RADIUS, to ensure that only authorized users can access the network.
  • Encryption: The module supports encryption features, such as IPsec and SSL/TLS, to secure data in transit over the network and protect it from interception and unauthorized access.
  • Denial of Service (DoS) Protection: The module provides DoS protection features, such as IP source guard, to prevent network attacks and protect the network from flooding or other forms of malicious traffic.
  • Firewall: The module supports firewall features, such as Access Control Lists (ACLs), to filter and block traffic based on predefined rules and policies.
  • Network Segmentation: The module supports network segmentation features, such as Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) and Virtual LAN (VLAN), to create separate network domains and isolate traffic between them.
  • Network Monitoring: The module supports network monitoring features, such as NetFlow, to monitor network traffic and identify potential security threats or anomalies.
  • Redundancy: The module supports redundancy features, such as link aggregation and hot standby, to ensure high availability and failover protection in case of network failures or attacks.

These security features help to ensure the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of the network and its data, making the Cisco A900-IMA-8Z 8-Port 10GbE SFP+ Expansion Module a secure and reliable option for high-performance networking environments.

High Availability and Redundancy Options

The Cisco A900-IMA-8Z 8-Port 10GbE SFP+ Expansion Module provides high availability and redundancy options to ensure the reliability and availability of the network. Here are some of the options available:

  • Link Aggregation: The module supports link aggregation, also known as port trunking, which allows multiple physical links to be grouped together to form a logical link with higher bandwidth and redundancy.
  • Hot Standby: The module supports hot standby features, such as Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) and Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), which allow backup routers to automatically take over in case of a failure or outage.
  • Load Balancing: The module supports load balancing features, such as Equal-Cost Multipath (ECMP), which distribute traffic across multiple paths to optimize performance and availability.
  • Redundant Power: The module supports redundant power options, such as dual power supplies, to ensure uninterrupted power supply and protect against power outages or failures.
  • Redundant Fans: The module has built-in redundant fans to ensure cooling and prevent overheating or hardware failure.
  • Graceful Restart: The module supports graceful restart features, which enable a router or switch to maintain its forwarding state during a software upgrade or restart, minimizing disruption to network traffic.
  • Non-Stop Forwarding (NSF): The module supports NSF features, which enable a router or switch to continue forwarding packets during a software upgrade or restart, providing uninterrupted network service.

These high availability and redundancy options help to ensure that the network remains available and reliable even in the event of failures or outages, making the Cisco A900-IMA-8Z 8-Port 10GbE SFP+ Expansion Module a dependable choice for mission-critical networks.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

For all your expansion module needs, we've got you covered with high-performance devices that increase functional capability and ease business processes.

You can talk to any of our staff and consult on what would be the best way forward when getting an expansion module to complement and enhance existing infrastructure and meet your immediate and future needs.

We have hardware level 12 with firmware 3.0 or higher modules that allow for the installation of up to 14 expansion modules below the base module for resilient performance. Expansion modules connect to the base module using USB Type-A connectors. That's not all, we have hardware level 11 and lower that supports up to 9 expansion modules.

With an expansion module, you get additional cartridge storage as well as tape drive capacity. We have expansion modules that contain up to two drives and two power supplies. You can choose to have the expansion module with tape drives and power supply installed so that it makes setup easier from your end. Expansion modules will need a power supply only if you install a tape drive in them. A single power supply can actually power two drives. However, you can add a second power supply for redundancy purposes. Without a tape drive, the expansion module is powered via the USB cable connected to the base module.

Expansion modules require 2U rack space and will be shipped with the necessary mounting hardware used to secure them to the rack.
