Security Features

The WS-X6908-10G-2T Cisco 8 Ports 10 Gigabit Ethernet Expansion Module provides several security features to help ensure the integrity and confidentiality of network data. Here are some of the key security features:

  • Access Control Lists (ACLs): The module supports ACLs, which can be used to filter and control network traffic based on source and destination IP addresses, port numbers, and other criteria. This can help prevent unauthorized access and protect sensitive data.
  • Port security: The module supports port security features, which can be used to restrict access to the network by allowing only authorized devices to connect to the network through a specific port.
  • 802.1X authentication: The module supports 802.1X authentication, which can be used to control access to the network by requiring users or devices to authenticate themselves before being granted access.
  • Secure Sockets Layer (SSL): The module supports SSL, which provides secure communication over the network by encrypting data transmissions.
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) security: The module supports SNMPv3, which provides secure SNMP communication by encrypting data transmissions and authenticating SNMP messages.
  • Dynamic ARP Inspection (DAI): The module supports DAI, which can help prevent ARP spoofing attacks by verifying ARP requests and responses before allowing them to be forwarded over the network.

Deployment Scenarios

The WS-X6908-10G-2T Cisco 8 Ports 10 Gigabit Ethernet Expansion Module can be used in a variety of deployment scenarios, depending on the network environment and requirements. Here are some common deployment scenarios:

  • Data center networks: The module can be used in data center networks to provide high-speed connectivity between servers, switches, and storage devices. With its 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the module can support high-bandwidth applications and virtualization technologies, such as VMware and Hyper-V.
  • Campus networks: The module can be used in campus networks to provide high-speed connectivity between buildings, floors, and departments. With its 8 ports, the module can support large-scale deployments and can be used to aggregate traffic from multiple access switches.
  • Service provider networks: The module can be used in service provider networks to provide high-speed connectivity between core routers and aggregation switches. With its 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the module can support high-bandwidth applications, such as video streaming and cloud services.
  • High-performance computing (HPC) environments: The module can be used in HPC environments to provide high-speed connectivity between clusters, nodes, and storage devices. With its 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the module can support large data transfers and high-performance computing applications.
  • Network monitoring and analysis: The module can be used in network monitoring and analysis tools to provide high-speed capture and analysis of network traffic. With its 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the module can capture large amounts of data and provide detailed analysis of network performance and security.

High Availability and Redundancy Options

The WS-X6908-10G-2T Cisco 8 Ports 10 Gigabit Ethernet Expansion Module provides several high availability and redundancy options to help ensure network uptime and minimize the risk of network downtime. Here are some of the key high availability and redundancy options:

  • Redundant power supply (RPS) support: The module supports RPS, which can provide backup power in case of a power supply failure.
  • Redundant supervisor engine support: The module can be installed in a switch chassis that supports redundant supervisor engines, allowing for automatic failover in case of a supervisor engine failure.
  • Virtual Switching System (VSS) support: The module supports VSS, which can be used to create a virtual switch out of two physical switches, providing a single management plane and allowing for automatic failover in case of a switch failure.
  • Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) support: The module supports LACP, which can be used to create link aggregation groups (LAGs) between the module and other network devices, providing redundancy and increased bandwidth.
  • Quality of Service (QoS) support: The module supports QoS, which can be used to prioritize network traffic and ensure that critical traffic is given priority in case of network congestion or failure.
  • Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) support: The module supports RSTP, which can be used to provide rapid network convergence in case of a link failure.

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, 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 it. 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 it to the rack.

The top features of the expansion modules we've listed include:

  • High-resolution LCD screens of up to 5" with backlight for a vibrant visual experience and ease of use. The expansion modules have programmable line keys ensuring that the interface is intuitive and interactive.
