Robust Security and Dynamic Quality

The WS-X4302-GB is a module for the Cisco Catalyst 4500 series of switches, providing 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports for server switching. The following are the key security and quality features of this module:

  • Quality of Service (QoS): The WS-X4302-GB supports QoS, allowing administrators to prioritize network traffic based on specific needs, such as voice and video.
  • Spanning Tree Protocol (STP): The module supports STP, which helps prevent network loops by creating a loop-free topology in the network.
  • Access Control Lists (ACLs): The module supports ACLs, which allow administrators to restrict access to the network based on specific criteria, such as source IP address or destination port.
  • Advanced security: The WS-X4302-GB supports advanced security features such as 802.1X authentication, which restricts access to the network based on user credentials, and Dynamic ARP Inspection (DAI), which helps prevent ARP spoofing attacks.
  • Hot-swappable: The module is hot-swappable, meaning it can be removed and replaced without affecting the rest of the network.
  • Scalability: The WS-X4302-GB is part of the Cisco Catalyst 4500 series, a highly scalable and modular switching platform, allowing administrators to easily add additional modules and expand the network as needed.
Quality of Service (QoS) Capabilities

The WS-X4302-GB Cisco Catalyst 4500 Ethernet Module is a 2-port module that can be used with the Cisco Catalyst 4500 series switches and provides Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities to prioritize and manage different types of network traffic.

Classification and Marking: The module supports several classification and marking methods that allow administrators to identify and classify different types of network traffic based on various criteria such as IP addresses, port numbers, and protocols. This allows the module to apply different QoS policies to different types of traffic.

Traffic Shaping and Policing: The module supports traffic shaping and policing, which are techniques used to control and limit the rate of traffic flowing through the module. Traffic shaping allows administrators to control the rate of traffic and ensure that it conforms to a specific rate while policing drops or marks packets that exceed a specified rate.

Congestion Management: The module supports several congestion management techniques, such as Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED) and Weighted Tail Drop (WTD), to manage and control network congestion. WRED randomly drops packets before a queue becomes full, while WTD drops packets when a queue becomes full.

Prioritization: The module supports several prioritization techniques, such as Class-Based Weighted Fair Queuing (CBWFQ) and Low Latency Queuing (LLQ), to prioritize different types of traffic and ensure that critical traffic is given priority over less important traffic.
