The Cisco ME 3400E Series offers two different Cisco IOS Software feature images. The
METROACCESS image offers advanced quality of service (QoS), rate limiting, robust multicast
control, and comprehensive security features. In addition, the METROACCESS image includes a
rich set of Carrier Ethernet access features including 802.1Q Tunneling, Layer 2 Protocol
Tunneling (L2PT), and Flexlink. The METROIPACCESS image adds advanced Layer 3 features
such as support for advanced IP routing protocols, Multi-VPN Routing and Forwarding Customer
Edge (Multi-VRF CE), and Policy Based Routing (PBR).
The SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports accommodate a wide range of 100BASE, 1000BASE,
coarse wavelength-division multiplexing (CWDM), and dense wavelength-division multiplexing
®
(DWDM) SFP transceivers. These ports also support the Cisco Catalyst 3560 SFP Interconnect
Cable for establishing a low-cost Gigabit Ethernet point-to-point connection.
Service-Provider-Friendly Hardware
Because Carrier Ethernet access switches are typically deployed in small spaces in office
buildings or apartments, the Cisco ME 3400E Series offers a compact form factor and flexible
mounting options. In addition, the Cisco ME 3400E Series has all front-accessed connectors to
simplify field installation and troubleshooting. To help ensure compliance with industry standards,
the Cisco ME 3400E Series has obtained both Network Equipment Building Standards Level 3
(NEBS3) and ETSI certifications.
Industry-Standard Services
Carrier Ethernet is a huge growth area for emerging connectivity services. It is a comparatively
simple, cost-effective, and familiar technology whose migration to the WAN will lead to more
flexible network connectivity while reducing overall IT costs. The Cisco ME 3400E Series is
certified to Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) 9 and 14 to support industry-standard Layer 2 services
and QoS features.
Gigabit Ethernet
With more and more applications demanding higher bandwidth, both enterprise and residential
customers want access speeds greater than 100 Mbps. To address this requirement, the Cisco ME
3400E Series offers wire-speed Gigabit Ethernet with all the Carrier Ethernet functions. At speeds
of 1000 Mbps, Gigabit Ethernet provides the bandwidth to meet new and evolving network
demands, alleviate bottlenecks, and boost performance while protecting the investment in existing
infrastructure.
Carrier Ethernet-Specific Software
The Cisco ME 3400E Series software is designed specifically for the Carrier Ethernet market.
Numerous new features make the Cisco ME 3400E Series the optimal access switch for service
providers. Many default behaviors of the Cisco ME 3400E Series are different from those of
traditional Ethernet switches, making the Cisco ME 3400E Series easier to configure, manage,
secure, and troubleshoot.
UNI/ENI/NNI
The Cisco ME 3400E Series software introduces the concept of User-Network Interface/Enhanced
Network Interface/Network-Node Interface (UNI/ENI/NNI) for Ethernet access switches. Because
the software can identify the application of each port, it can provide many powerful default
behaviors. Table 1 lists some of the primary behaviors and benefits of UNI/ENI/NNI.

UNI/ENI/NNI Default Behaviors
Default Behaviors
Benefits
UNI/ENI default: down
Ports must be activated by the service provider before customers can receive service.
UNI/ENI default: no local switching
Circuit-like behavior protects customers from each other.
UNI/ENI default: configurable
control plane security enabled
Control-plane packets ingressing from the UNI/ENI are dropped in hardware to protect
against denial-of-service (DoS) attacks by default. Unlike UNI ports, ENI ports give
service providers the flexibility to selectively discard or peer with customer’s control
plane traffic on a per-port, per-protocol basis for the following Layer 2 protocols: Cisco
Discovery Protocol, Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), Link Aggregation Control
Protocol (LACP), Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP), and Spanning Tree Protocol.
NNI default: up
Enables automated configuration of the switch through a Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol (DHCP) or BOOTP server.
Flexible Deployment Options for Software Features
The Cisco ME 3400E Series offers two different Cisco IOS Software feature images,
METROACCESS and METROIPACCESS, providing cost-effective, “pay-as-you-grow” upgrade
options for service providers deploying multiple services. The service providers do not have to pay
for the features they do not need today and still have the option in the future to receive those
features with a simple software upgrade.
Support for multiple software feature images allows service providers to standardize on the Cisco
ME 3400E Series, save on the operating expense of stocking multiple products, simplify training of
support technicians, and alleviate the complication of supporting different products for different
services.

Data Sheet
Service Availability
Increased service availability is a critical requirement for service provider networks because most
enterprise customers expect the same level of availability from Carrier Ethernet as they have from
leased-line networks. The Cisco ME 3400E Series supports redundant field-replacable integrated
power supply and fan modules. To quickly activate and troubleshoot services, the Cisco ME 3400E
Series offers traffic loopback capabilities so service providers can remotely verify and monitor
services. Four external alarm inputs allow service providers to respond quickly to changes in the
switch’s environmental condtions before failure occurs.
To further increase service availability on a networkwide level, Cisco ME 3400E offers Flexlink for
sub-50-ms failover, Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP), Link-State Tracking, IEEE 802.1w Rapid
Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), per-VLAN Rapid Spanning Tree Plus (PVRST+), and the Cisco
Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP). These capabilities help to create redundant, failsafe
topologies. Strong, built-in security in three tiers – network, switch, and subscriber – helps prevent
the device and the network from succumbing to malicious attacks, thereby enhancing network
uptime.
Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP) is a Cisco proprietary protocol that provides an alternative to
Spanning Tree Protocol to control network loops, handle link failures, and improve convergence
time. REP enables fast and predicable reconvergence for Layer 2 networks. In addition, REP
supports VLAN load balancing to enable efficient utilization of redundant links.
Service Flexibility
As more enterprises adopt Carrier Ethernet technology, the demand on service providers’ abilities
to offer new services increases. The Cisco ME 3400E Series offers 1:1 VLAN translation which
allows end customers the flexibility of choosing their own internal VLANs without affecting the core
service provider’s network. In some instances, service providers need to provide multiple EPL
(Ethernet Private Line) services on a single UNI (User Network Interface). With the Selective QinQ
feature, the Cisco ME 3400E Series helps service providers to offer multiple Ethernet Virtual
Private Line (EVPL) services on a single UNI. To support the need for next-generation enterprise
services, customers are lookings for more QoS functionalities to support differenty types of
applicatoins. To meet the need for ever stringent QoS requirements from customers, the Cisco ME
3400E Series offers 2-rate 3-color policer with byte-level statistics at ingress ports and inner-toouter CoS mapping to help service providers offer differentiated services with high profit margins.
Service Manageability
With today’s sophiscated networks, service providers are always looking for ways to reduce
operational expenses (OpEx) and increase profit margins. The Cisco ME 3400E Series provides
the following tools to help service providers simplify the management of their Ethernet services.
Traffic loopback capabilities to help service providers activate and troubleshoot new and existing
services without expensive truck rolls. The “dying gasp” alert for loss of power and four external
alarm inputs to detect changes in remote sites further help service providers to manage the health
of their equipment. And an Ethernet management port provides dedicated access for service
providers to monitor and provision the switch.
In addtion, the Cisco ME 3400E Series includes Generic Online Diagnostics (GOLD) and Onboard
Failure Logging (OBFL) to help service providers avoid potential problems before they occur and
troubleshoot and diagnose issues once they happened. With features such as Embedded Event
Manager (EEM), Ethernet Operations, Administration, and Management (OAM), and Time-Domain

Data Sheet
Reflectometer (TDR), the Cisco ME 3400E Series provides a comprehensive set of tools to help
service providers to manage Ethernet services.
Service Security
As Carrier Ethernet networks expand, it is a challenge to provide the same level of security as
other access technologies. Cisco ME 3400E Series switches provide a comprehensive security
solution for Ethernet access networks by providing service security in three areas: subscriber,
switch, and network.
Subscriber security helps create protection among customers. A major concern in using a shared
device for multiple customers is how to prevent customers from affecting each other. The Cisco
ME 3400E Series addresses this concern with several different features. The UNI/NNI feature
creates a circuit-like behavior to separate customers’ traffic from each other. DHCP Snooping,
Dynamic ARP Inspection, and IP Source Guard help service providers identify each customer
based on MAC, IP address, and port information to help prevent malicious users from spoofing
fake addresses and launching man-in-the-middle attacks.
Switch security is about protecting the switch itself from attacks. The Cisco ME 3400 Series offers
features to protect CPU and configuration files from attacks. CPU is a critical component of an
Ethernet switch that is responsible for process-control protocols and routing updates; under DoS
attack, the CPU could drop those control packets, resulting in network outage. Other features such
as Configurable Control Plane Security and Storm Control protect the CPU against malicious
attacks. The Port Security feature allows service providers to control the number of MAC
addresses each subscriber is allowed, offering protection against overwhelming the switch
memory.
Network security features filter all incoming traffic to help ensure that only valid traffic is allowed
through the switch. Cisco ME 3400E Series switches have features such as access control lists
(ACLs) and IEEE 802.1x authentication to identify the users and packets that are allowed to
transmit traffic through the switch.
Table 3 lists these and other key features of the security solution.

Switch Management Options
The Cisco ME 3400E Series offers a superior command-line interface (CLI) for detailed
configuration. In addition, the switches support CiscoWorks and Simple Network Management
Protocol (SNMP) for networkwide management. Service providers can integrate the Cisco ME
3400 Series transparently into their operations support systems (OSSs) and enable improved flowthrough provisioning.
Service providers can also manage the Cisco ME 3400E Series using SNMP Versions 2 and 3. A
comprehensive set of MIBs is provided for service providers to collect traffic information in the
Cisco ME 3400E Series.

Ethernet Operations, Administration, Maintenance, and Provisioning
The advent of Ethernet as a metropolitan and wide-area networking technology has accelerated
the need for a new set of operations, administration, maintenance, and provisioning (OAM&P)
protocols. Service provider networks are large and complex with a wide user base, and they often
involve different operators that must work together to provide end-to-end services to enterprise
customers. To answer enterprise customer demands, service providers must reduce the mean
time to repair (MTTR) and increase service availability. Ethernet OAM&P features address these
challenges and enable service providers to offer carrier-grade services.
The Cisco ME 3400E Series supports industry-standard OAM&P tools including IEEE 802.1ag
Connectivity Fault Management, IEEE 802.3ah Ethernet First Mile, and Ethernet Local
Management Interface (E-LMI) protocol. IEEE 802.1ag tools to monitor and troubleshoot end-toend Ethernet networks allow service providers to check connectivity, isolate network issues, and
identify customers affected by network issues. E-LMI protocol, developed by the MEF, enables
service providers to communicate service configuration and status information to the customeredge device. In addition, the Cisco ME 3400E Series supports the IEEE 802.3ah Ethernet in the
First Mile standard for monitoring, remote failure indication, loopback, and OAM discovery on the
link between the customer equipment and the service provider network.
Furthermore, the Cisco ME 3400E Series supports the ITU-T standard Y.1731, which provides
fault management and complements the IEEE 802.1ag functionality.
Applications
Cisco ME 3400E Series switches help service providers offer a portfolio of profitable, differentiated
services, including Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN services for the ETTB market.
Intelligent Ethernet Demarcation
As Ethernet circuits replace TDM circuits inside of enterprise wiring closets, a replacement for the
demarcation device is also needed. Service providers have traditionally relied on this type of
device to separate the management responsibility. A demarcation device allows service providers
to monitor and troubleshoot circuits all the way into the customer’s wiring closet. The Cisco ME
3400EG-2CS Switch offers the same function for an Ethernet-based network. With support for
industry-standard Ethernet OAM&P features and traffic loopback, the Cisco ME 3400EG-2CS
allows service providers to monitor and troubleshoot Ethernet circuits remotely. These features
greatly reduce operating expense for service providers by reducing the numbers of site visits
needed to troubleshoot network problems. In addition, the Cisco ME 3400EG-2CS provides the
same intelligent features such as QoS, Ethernet security, and Multicast as other switches in the
Cisco ME 3400E Series.
Layer 2 VPN Service
Layer 2 VPN services allow customers to connect remote offices together through a service
provider network without requiring private connections. The Cisco ME 3400E Series is suited for
Carrier Ethernet access deployments because it offers features such as 802.1Q Tunneling and
L2PT. The Cisco ME 3400E Series helps service providers offer Layer 2 VPN services to their
enterprise or commercial customers (Figure 2). Typically, these switches are installed in a office
building basement serving multiple customers as customer located equipment (CLE).

Layer 2 VPN Service
Layer 3 VPN Service
Layer 3 VPN is another popular offering from service providers. Its benefits include a single control
plane over different transport technologies, advanced QoS, and high security. With the Multi-VPN
Routing and Forwarding Customer Edge (Multi-VRF CE) feature, the Cisco ME 3400E Series
provides a separate routing-table function for each customer to help ensure separation of
customers’ routing information (Figure 3).
Figure 3.
Layer 3 VPN Service
Mobile Backhaul Service
With the explosion of mobile data traffic, service providers need more bandwidth in their mobile
networks. Ethernet, with attributes such as simplicity, scalability, and low cost, has become the
mobile backhaul solution that many service providers have turned to in order to provide the
required capacity for data traffic. The Cisco ME 3400E Series provides features such as +24V DC,
redundant power supplies, and an extended temperature range (up to 65°C depending on the
model and configuration – see Table 9 for more details), which are critical for mobile backhaul
deployments. In addition, the Cisco ME 3400E Series includes Ethernet OAM and traffic loopback,
which help service providers to remotely monitor and troubleshoot traffic at distant cell stations.
The Cisco ME 3400E Series also helps service providers to deliver flexible Layer 2 SLAs with
advanced QoS features.

Network Security
Comprehensive security
solutions
Subscriber security:
● IEEE 802.1x allows dynamic, port-based security by providing user authentication.
● IEEE 802.1x with VLAN assignment allows a dynamic VLAN assignment for a specific user
regardless of where the user is connected.
● IEEE 802.1x and port security are provided to authenticate the port and manage network
access for all MAC addresses.
● IEEE 802.1x readiness check simplifies deployment by generating a report for end hosts
capable of 802.1x.
● An absence of local switching behavior provides security and isolation between UNIs, helping
ensure that users cannot monitor or access other users’ traffic on the same switch.
● DHCP Snooping prevents malicious users from spoofing a DHCP server and sending out
bogus addresses. This feature also prevents numerous other attacks such as Address
Resolution Protocol (ARP) poisoning.
● Dynamic ARP Inspection helps ensure user integrity by preventing malicious users from
exploiting the insecure nature of the ARP protocol.
● IP Source Guard prevents a malicious user from spoofing or taking over another user’s IP
address by creating a binding table between client’s IP and MAC address, port, and VLAN.
Switch security:
● Control Plane Security prevents DoS attacks on the CPU.
● Configurable control plane security on ENI gives service providers the flexibility to selectively
discard or peer with customer’s control plane traffic on a per-port, per-protocol basis.
● Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol, Kerberos, and SNMPv3 provide network security by encrypting
administrator traffic during Telnet and SNMP sessions. SSH, Kerberos, and the cryptographic
version of SNMPv3 require a special cryptographic software image because of U.S. export
restrictions.
● Port security secures the access to an access or trunk port based on MAC address. After a
specific timeframe, the aging feature removes the MAC address from the switch to allow
another device to connect to the same port.
● Multilevel security on the console access prevents unauthorized users from altering the switch
configuration.
● TACACS+ and RADIUS authentication facilitate centralized control of the switch and restrict
unauthorized users from altering the configuration.
● Configuration File Security helps ensure that only authenticated users have access to the
configuration file.
● MAC address learning and aging notifications allow administrators to keep track of subscriber
activities.
Network security:
● Cisco security VLAN ACLs on all VLANs prevent unauthorized data flows from being bridged
within VLANs.
● Cisco standard and extended IP security router ACLs define security policies on routed
interfaces for control-plane and data-plane traffic.
● Port-based ACLs for Layer 2 interfaces allow for application of security policies on individual
switch ports.
● MAC address notification allows administrators to be notified of users added to or removed
from the network.
Network monitoring:
● Loopback allows service provider to test end-to-end traffic condition in the network.
● Remote Switched Port Analyzer (RSPAN) allows for remote monitoring of the user interface.
● Bidirectional data support on the Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) port allows the Cisco
intrusion detection system to take action when an intruder is detected.

Manageability
Superior manageability
● The Cisco IOS CLI provides a common user interface and command set with all Cisco routers
and Cisco Catalyst desktop switches.
● Cisco Service Assurance Agent (SAA) provides service-level management throughout the
network.
● IEEE 802.1ag Connectivity Fault Management provides standard support for transport fault
management. It allows for discovery and verification of path for Layer 2 services.
● Ethernet Local Management Interface enables service providers to communicate service
configuration and status information to the customer-edge device IEEE 802.3ah Ethernet in
the First Mile provides standard support for monitoring, remote failure indication, loopback,
and OAM discovery on the link between the customer equipment and service provider
network.
● ITU-T Y.1731 introduces the support for fault management functions, including alarm
indication signal (AIS), remote defect indication (RDI) and locked signal (LCK) to detect and
signal a failure in the service path.
● Switching Database Manager templates for Layer 2 and Layer 3 deployment allow
administrators to easily optimize memory allocation to the desired features based on
deployment-specific requirements.
● VLAN trunks can be created from any port, using standards-based 802.1Q tagging. Up to
1005 VLANs per switch and up to 128 spanning-tree instances per switch are supported.
● 4096 VLAN IDs are supported.
● RSPAN allows administrators to remotely monitor ports in a Layer 2 switch network from any
other switch in the same network.
● For enhanced traffic management, monitoring, and analysis, the embedded Remote
Monitoring (RMON) software agent supports four RMON groups (history, statistics, alarms,
and events).
● Layer 2 traceroute eases troubleshooting by identifying the physical path that a packet takes
from source to destination.
● All nine RMON groups are supported through a SPAN port, permitting traffic monitoring of a
single port, a group of ports, or the entire stack from a single network analyzer or RMON
probe.
● Domain Name System (DNS) provides IP address resolution with user-defined device names.
● Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) reduces the cost of administering software upgrades by
downloading from a centralized location.
● Network Timing Protocol (NTP) provides an accurate and consistent time stamp to all intranet
switches.
● The Cisco ME 3400 Series supports the Cisco CNS 2100 Series Intelligence Engine and
SNMP for networkwide management.
● Cisco ISC applications help reduce administration and management costs by providing
automated resource management and rapid profile-based provisioning capabilities.
● Configuration Rollback helps in error recovery by providing the capability to replace the
current running configuration with any saved Cisco IOS configuration file.
● Embedded Events Manager (EEM) offers the ability to monitor events and take user-defined
action when the monitored events occur or a threshold is reached.
● Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)-based auto configuration and image update
simplifies management of large number of switches by automatically downloading specified
configuration and image.
● Service Diagnostics automates a set of network diagnostic procedures derived from the vast
troubleshooting experiences of Cisco network experts. These diagnostic tools help customers
increase network uptime, reduce time to repair and improve service levels.
● Digital optical monitoring (DOM) support enable service providers to perform in-service
transceiver monitoring and troubleshooting operations. DOM threshold functions allow the
monitoring of real time optical parameters on DOM SFPs and the comparison against factoryreset values, generating alarm and warning thresholds.
CiscoWorks support
● CiscoWorks network management software provides management capabilities on a per-port
and per-switch basis, providing a common management interface for Cisco routers, switches,
and hubs.
● SNMP Versions 1, 2c, and 3 and Telnet provide comprehensive in-band management, and a
CLI-based management console provides detailed out-of-band management.
● Cisco Discovery Protocol Versions 1 and 2 help enable automatic switch discovery for a
CiscoWorks network management station.
● CiscoWorks 2000 LAN Management Solution is supported.
