®
Cisco Enhanced EtherSwitch Service Modules can reduce your company’s total cost of ownership by
integrating Gigabit Ethernet (GE) and Fast Ethernet (FE) switch ports within Cisco 3900 and 2900 Series
Integrated Services Routers. This integration allows network administrators to manage a single device
using Cisco management tools orthe router command-line interface (CLI) for LAN and WAN management
needs. This approach reduces network complexity, lowers maintenance contract costs, lessens staff
training needs, simplifies software qualification efforts, increases availability, and delivers a consistent
user experience at branch offices and headquarters.
Product Overview
The Cisco Enhanced EtherSwitch Service Modules (Figure 1) greatly expands the router’s capabilities by integrating
®
industry-leading Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching with feature sets identical to those found in the Cisco Catalyst 3560E and Catalyst 2960 Series Switches. The new Cisco Enhanced EtherSwitch Service Modules are the first modules
to take advantage of the increased capabilities on the Cisco 3900 and 2900 Series Integrated Services Routers.
®
Additionally, these service modules enable Cisco’s industry-leading power initiatives, Cisco EnergyWise , Cisco
Enhanced Power over Ethernet (ePoE), and per-port PoE power monitoring—all of which enhance the ability of the
branch office to scale to next-generation requirements and still meet important initiatives for IT teams to operate a
power efficient network. Furthermore, the Cisco Enhanced EtherSwitch Service Modules not only perform local linerate switching and routing but also support direct service module-to-service module communication through the
Integrated Services Router Generation 2 multigigabit fabric (MGF) which separates LAN traffic from WAN resources.

Secure Network Connectivity for Data, Voice, and Video
When inserted within a Cisco 2900 or 3900 Series Integrated Services Router, such as the Cisco 3945 (Figure 2),
the Cisco Enhanced EtherSwitch Service Modules provide a fully integrated, secure networking and converged IP
communications solution. From a single platform with an integrated switch, you can connect IP phones, wireless
access points, and IP-based video cameras to your network and power them using the IEEE 802.3af, Cisco ePoE, or
Cisco pre-standard PoE. With the optional integration of Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, the router
can also provide call-processing for the phones. As users attempt network access through the Cisco Enhanced
EtherSwitch Service Module, the module can use IEEE 802.1x and a large number of Cisco 802.1x extensions to
validate the credentials of the end device and place the user in the appropriate VLAN or Cisco TrustSec group. As
the end-user data leaves the LAN, the router can encrypt the traffic and place it on a multitude of VPNs, securing
communications between branch offices and central sites.
This high degree of convergence simplifies the network architecture and allows for cost-effective deployment of
advanced services at the branch-office level. Furthermore, because the Cisco Enhanced EtherSwitch Service
Modules support the same feature sets as the Cisco Catalyst 2960 and Catalyst 3560-E Switches, you can provide a
ubiquitous configuration at headquarters and at the branch office to create a consistent experience throughout your
network.

Cisco EnergyWise Technology
Cisco EnergyWise technology is an innovative architecture added to a large number of Cisco Catalyst switches, the
Cisco 2900 and 3900 Series Integrated Services Routers, and the Cisco ES2 and ES3 Enhanced EtherSwitch
Service Modules to promote companywide sustainability by reducing energy consumption across an entire network
infrastructure.
Cisco EnergyWise technology encompasses a highly intelligent network-based approach to communicate messages
that measure and control energy between network devices and endpoints. The network discovers Cisco EnergyWise
manageable devices, monitors their power consumption, and takes action based on business rules to reduce power
consumption. The technology uses an innovative domain-naming system to query and summarize information from
large sets of devices, making it simpler than traditional network management capabilities. The management
interfaces of this technology allow facilities and network management applications to communicate with endpoints
and each other using the network as a unifying fabric. The management interface uses standard Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP) or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to integrate Cisco and third-party management
systems.

Data Sheet
Cisco EnergyWise technology extends the network as a platform for the power control plane for gathering,
managing, and reducing power consumption of all devices, resulting in companywide optimized power delivery and
reduced energy costs.
Advanced PoE Support
Although Power over Ethernet (PoE) has been employed for more than a decade, it is still an evolving technology.
New and innovative applications continue to raise expectations for power requirements. The Cisco Enhanced
EtherSwitch Service Modules are the first EtherSwitch modules to take advantage of the increased power
capabilities of the Cisco 2900 and 3900 Series routers. Table 3 gives information about total PoE power output.
Depending on the Cisco 2900 and 3900 Series router model, the available PoE power ranges from 200 to 1014
watts. The Cisco Enhanced EtherSwitch Service Module supports not only IEEE 802.1af (15.4 watts), but also Cisco
ePoE (20 watts, ES3 only) as well as Cisco pre-standard PoE. The support of both new and old power levels
demonstrates Cisco’s commitment to protection of your initial investment while planning for the future. Additional
PoE features include:
●
Per-port power consumption control allows you to specify a maximum power setting on an individual port.
●
Per-port PoE power sensing measures the actual power being drawn, enabling more intelligent control of
powered devices.
●
The Cisco PoE MIBs provide proactive visibility into power usage and allow you to set different power-level
thresholds.
●
Cisco Discovery Protocol Version 2 allows the Cisco Enhanced EtherSwitch Service Modules to negotiate a
more granular power setting than IEEE classification provides when connecting to a Cisco powered device
such as IP phones or access points.
●
The Link Layer Discovery Protocol Media Endpoint Discovery (LLDP-MED) link layer discovery protocol and
MIB enable interoperability in multivendor networks. Switches exchange speed, duplex, and power settings
with end devices such as IP phones.
Power over Ethernet requires the PoE versions of the router power supplies. The Cisco 2900 and 3900 Series
routers support multiple PoE powering modes:
●
Normal: One PoE power supply
●
Redundant: Two PoE internal power supplies (Cisco 3925 and 3945) or one PoE power supply plus an
