  • 1 x Cisco ME 4924-10GE 24-port Gigabit + 2 10GbE Ethernet Aggregation Switch

The Cisco® ME 4924-10GE Switch is a next-generation Layer 3 user-facing premise equipment (UPE) aggregation device purposely built for high-performance Carrier Ethernet networks. Based on Cisco Catalyst® 4900 Series Switch technology, the Cisco ME 4924 delivers on the performance, availability, and form factor required in residential broadband triple-play service aggregation and business Ethernet deployments.

Product Overview

The Cisco ME 4924 (Figure 1) is the first switch optimized for UPE aggregation based on Cisco Catalyst 4900 Series technology. It provides the line-rate performance required to deliver data, voice, and video services to thousands of subscribers simultaneously. Service providers have the choice of uplinking to a 10 GE or 1 GE backbone using a variety of Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) and X2 optic types.

• Twenty-four Gigabit Ethernet SFP User to Network Interfaces (UNI) and four Gigabit Ethernet SFP uplinks/ trunk ports with an additional two 10 Gigabit Ethernet X2 uplinks

• Redundant field-replaceable AC and DC power supplies

• Removable fan tray with redundant fans

• 1 rack unit (RU) form factor

The Cisco ME 4924 comes standard with the IP Base Software image (Table 1). This image includes the Layer 2 feature set, as well as Routing Information Protocol (RIP) and Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) stub support.

For greater service breadth and network flexibility, the Cisco ME 4924 supports the Enterprise Services image, which provides advanced Layer 3 features such as advanced IP routing protocols, including: RIPv1 and 2, EIGRP, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGPv4), and Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS).
