  • Optical Connectivity Options: The inclusion of SFP+ and SFP (Mini-GBIC) ports provides users with flexibility in choosing optical connectivity options based on their specific needs. This adaptability is particularly valuable in diverse networking environments.
  • Redundancy and Reliability: By allowing hot-swappable replacements, the C3850-NM-8-10G contributes to the redundancy and reliability of the network. In the event of a module failure, a replacement can be seamlessly integrated without affecting the ongoing operations of the switch.
Performance of 8 Ports Gigabits Ethernet Network Module

The Cisco C3850-NM-8-10G is a network module designed for use with the Cisco Catalyst 3850 series switches. It provides eight 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting to other devices on the network. The performance of the C3850-NM-8-10G network module will depend on various factors, including the overall network configuration, the quality of the hardware and software, and the specific networking requirements.

In general, the C3850-NM-8-10G network module is designed to support high-speed data transfer and provide a significant boost to the performance of a network. The 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports on the module are capable of supporting data transfer rates of up to 10 Gbps, making it well-suited for high-bandwidth applications such as video streaming and data backup. The module also supports various networking features and protocols, including Quality of Service (QoS), Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), and virtual LANs (VLANs), which can help to optimize network performance and efficiency.

Security Features and Capabilities

The C3850-NM-8-10G Cisco Catalyst 3850 Expansion Module is a network module designed to provide additional connectivity options to Cisco Catalyst 3850 switches. While the module itself does not have any specific security features or capabilities, it is compatible with several security features of the Cisco Catalyst 3850 switch platform, which can help enhance the overall security of the network.

Here are some security features and capabilities that can be leveraged with the Cisco Catalyst 3850 switch platform:

  • Access Control Lists (ACLs): ACLs can be used to restrict traffic flows to and from specific network segments, ports, or IP addresses. This can help prevent unauthorized access and mitigate the risk of network attacks.
  • Port Security: Port Security is a feature that allows network administrators to restrict the number of MAC addresses that can be learned on a switch port. This helps prevent unauthorized devices from connecting to the network and reduces the risk of attacks such as MAC flooding.
  • Dynamic ARP Inspection (DAI): DAI is a feature that validates ARP packets and ensures that the MAC address and IP address match. This helps prevent ARP spoofing attacks and other attacks that rely on spoofed ARP packets.
  • Network Admission Control (NAC): NAC is a feature that allows network administrators to enforce security policies and ensure that devices connecting to the network meet certain security requirements, such as having updated anti-virus software.
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN): VPNs provide secure remote access to network resources over the Internet. The Cisco Catalyst 3850 switch platform supports several VPN technologies, including SSL VPN and IPsec VPN.
  • TrustSec: TrustSec is a security framework that provides identity-based network access control and helps secure the network from the edge to the core. It allows network administrators to define security policies based on the identity of the user or device, rather than just the IP address or port number.

Impact on Catalyst 3850 Switch

  • Performance Enhancement: The integration of the C3850-NM-8-10G significantly enhances the performance of the Catalyst 3850 switch. The increased bandwidth and throughput capabilities contribute to a more responsive and efficient network infrastructure.
  • Diverse Connectivity Options: The addition of eight ports for SFP+ and SFP (Mini-GBIC) connections broadens the range of devices that can be connected to the Catalyst 3850 switch. This diversity in connectivity options allows for greater flexibility in designing and expanding network configurations.
  • Adaptability to Changing Needs: The scalability offered by the C3850-NM-8-10G ensures that the Catalyst 3850 switch can adapt to changing network needs over time. As the demand for higher performance and increased connectivity grows, the switch can easily accommodate these changes without requiring a complete hardware replacement.
  • Reliability and Redundancy: The hot-swappable design of the module adds an extra layer of reliability to the Catalyst 3850 switch. In the event of a module failure, the ability to replace it without disrupting the entire network ensures continuous operation and minimizes potential downtime.
