Future Developments and Roadmap

The WS-X6148A-GE-45AF Cisco Classic 48 Ports Interface Module is a line card designed to be used with Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches. It provides 48 ports of Gigabit Ethernet connectivity with Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, making it ideal for businesses that need to power network devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras.

While this particular module has been around for a number of years, Cisco continues to support it with ongoing software updates and maintenance releases. However, as technology continues to evolve, Cisco has also released newer line cards with increased port density, improved power efficiency, and additional features.

For example, the WS-X6748-GE-TX Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series 48-Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Interface Module offers 48 ports of Gigabit Ethernet connectivity like the WS-X6148A-GE-45AF, but also includes support for jumbo frames, advanced quality of service (QoS) features, and enhanced multicast capabilities. Additionally, it is more power efficient than the older module, which can be beneficial for businesses looking to reduce their energy costs.

Another newer line card option is the WS-X6908-10G-2T Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series 8-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Module, which offers high-speed connectivity for businesses that require more bandwidth than Gigabit Ethernet can provide. This module includes 8 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, as well as advanced QoS and multicast capabilities.

Industry Standards Compliance

The WS-X6148A-GE-45AF is a classic line card module for Cisco Catalyst 6500 and 6500-E series switches. This module provides 48 ports of Gigabit Ethernet connectivity with Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability, allowing devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras to receive power over the Ethernet cable.

In terms of industry standards compliance, the WS-X6148A-GE-45AF meets several important standards, including:

  • IEEE 802.3af: This standard defines the technical specifications for PoE, which allows for the transmission of power over Ethernet cables. The WS-X6148A-GE-45AF supports IEEE 802.3af, allowing it to provide power to PoE-enabled devices.
  • IEEE 802.3x: This standard defines the specifications for flow control in Ethernet networks. The WS-X6148A-GE-45AF supports IEEE 802.3x, which enables it to handle data transmission at high speeds without dropping packets.
  • IEEE 802.1Q: This standard defines the specifications for virtual LAN (VLAN) tagging in Ethernet networks. The WS-X6148A-GE-45AF supports IEEE 802.1Q, allowing it to segment network traffic into different VLANs for security and management purposes.
  • RoHS: The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) is a European Union regulation that restricts the use of certain hazardous materials in electronic and electrical equipment. The WS-X6148A-GE-45AF is RoHS-compliant, meaning it does not contain any of the restricted materials.

Quality of Service Capabilities

The WS-X6148A-GE-45AF is a Cisco Classic 48-port interface module that provides high-performance connectivity for enterprise networks. This module is designed to support a wide range of applications, including voice, video, and data, and is equipped with Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities to ensure the delivery of these applications with high reliability and low latency.

QoS is a set of mechanisms that enable network administrators to prioritize traffic on their networks. With QoS, network administrators can ensure that high-priority traffic, such as voice and video, is delivered with low latency and high reliability, while lower-priority traffic, such as email and file transfers, is delivered with lower priority. QoS capabilities on the WS-X6148A-GE-45AF module are provided through a variety of mechanisms, including:

  • Classification: The module can classify traffic based on a variety of parameters, including source and destination IP addresses, port numbers, and protocol types. This allows administrators to assign different QoS policies to different types of traffic.
  • Marking: The module can mark packets with Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) values, which can be used by routers and switches to prioritize traffic.
  • Policing: The module can enforce traffic policies by policing the amount of traffic that is sent on a particular interface. This can help prevent network congestion by limiting the amount of traffic that is allowed to enter the network.
  • Queuing: The module supports queuing mechanisms that allow administrators to prioritize traffic based on QoS policies. The module supports both strict priority queuing and weighted fair queuing, which allow administrators to prioritize traffic based on their needs.
  • Shaping: The module can shape traffic to conform to a particular bandwidth limit. This can help prevent network congestion by limiting the amount of traffic that is allowed to enter the network.

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.
