Data Sheet
Cisco ME 2400 Series Ethernet Access Switches
®
The Cisco ME 2400 Series Ethernet Access Switch is a next generation family of Layer 2 customer-located switches purposely built for triple®
play service. Its design is based on the experience learned from today’s most widely deployed access switches, the Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series.
Product Overview
The Cisco ME 2400 Series offers service provider-friendly hardware and mission-specific software, including a complete security solution for
Metro Ethernet access. This cost-effective solution is optimized for the Ethernet-to-the-home (ETTH) triple-play services.
Configurations
The Cisco ME 2400 Series (Figure 1) includes the following configurations:
• Cisco 2400-24TS AC with 24 Ethernet 10/100 ports, 2 Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) uplinks, and an AC power supply (part number
ME-2400-24TS-A)
• Cisco 2400-24TS DC with 24 Ethernet 10/100 ports, 2 SFP uplinks, and a DC power supply (part number ME-2400-24TS-D)

The SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports accommodate a wide range of 100BASE and 1000BASE SFP transceivers. The options include Cisco
100BASE-LX, 100BASE-FX, 100BASE-BX, 1000BASE-T, 1000BASE-SX, 1000BASE-LX, 1000BASE-ZX, and coarse wavelength-division
multiplexing (CWDM) 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
Metro Ethernet access switches are typically deployed in the basements of office buildings or in apartments. Service providers are always
challenged to find enough space to deploy equipment. To ease this obstacle, the purpose-built Cisco ME 2400 Series is designed with a
compact form factor (1RU x 9.52 in.) and flexible mounting options. In addition, the Cisco ME 2400 Series is built with all front-accessed
connectors to simplify field installation and troubleshooting.

Metro-Specific Software
The Cisco ME 2400 Series switches run software specifically designed for the Metro Ethernet market. Many new features are added to make
the Cisco ME 2400 Series the optimal access switch for service providers. Many default behaviors of the Cisco ME 2400 Series are different
from those of traditional Ethernet switches; these differences make the Cisco ME 2400 Series easier to configure, manage, secure, and
troubleshoot.
UNI/NNI
The Cisco ME 2400 Series software introduces the concept of User-Network Interface/Network-Node Interface (UNI/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/NNI.
Table 1.
UNI/NNI Default Behaviors
Default Behaviors
Benefits
UNI Default: Down
Ports are be activated by the service provider before customers can receive service.
UNI Default: No Local Switching
Circuit-like behavior protects customers from each other.
UNI Default: Control Plane
Security Enabled
Control-plane packet ingresses from the UNI are dropped in hardware to protect against denial
of service (DoS).
NNI Default: Up
This feature helps enable automated configuration of the switch through a Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) or BOOTP server.
Comprehensive Security Solution
As Metro Ethernet networks continue to expand, one of the challenges that service providers face is to provide the same level of security as
other access technologies. To meet this challenge, the Cisco ME 2400 Series switches provide the most comprehensive security solution for
Ethernet access products. By dividing security into three portions and designing features for each, the Cisco ME 2400 can provide complete
solution at the access layer. The three different areas of security the switch addresses are subscriber security, switch security, and network
security.
The subscriber security helps create protection among customers. One of the biggest concerns about using a shared device for multiple
customers is how to prevent customers from affecting each other. The Cisco ME 2400 Series addresses this concern by providing features such
as UNI/NNI, DHCP Snooping, and Private VLAN. The UNI/NNI feature creates a circuit-like behavior to separate customers’ traffic from each
other. DHCP Snooping helps service providers identify each user’s MAC address, IP address, and port information and prevents users from
attempting DHCP based attacks.
The switch security is about protecting the switch itself from attacks. The Cisco ME 2400 Series offers features to protect CPU and
configuration files from attacks. CPU is a critical component of an Ethernet switch; it is responsible for process-control protocols such as
Spanning Tree Protocol and routing updates; if CPU is under DoS attack, those control packets could be dropped, resulting in network outage.
Features such as Control Plane Security and Storm Control protect the CPU against malicious attacks. Port Security is another important
security feature; it allows service providers to control the number of MAC addresses each subscriber is allowed – thereby protecting against
overwhelming the switch memory.
The final area of security is network security. The features designed for this area filter all incoming traffic to help ensure that only valid traffic
is allowed through the switch. The Cisco ME 2400 Series switches have features such as access control lists (ACLs) and 802.1x to identify the
users and packets that are allowed to transmit traffic through the switch.

Service Management Options
The Cisco ME 2400 Series offers a superior command-line interface (CLI) for detailed configuration. In addition, the switches support
CiscoWorks, the Cisco CNS 2100 Series Intelligence Engine, and the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) for networkwide
management. Service providers can integrate the Cisco ME 2400 Series transparently into their operations support systems (OSSs) and enable
improved flow-through provisioning.
®
The Cisco CNS 2100 Series network device allows service providers to effectively manage a network of Cisco IOS Software devices,
including the Cisco ME 2400 Series. It is a completely self-contained unit that includes a task-oriented Web GUI, a programmable Extensible
Markup Language (XML) interface, configuration template management, and an embedded repository. Network operators can use the Web
GUI to quickly turn existing Cisco IOS CLI configuration files into reusable templates. The Cisco CNS 2100 Series integrates easily into
existing customer OSSs or business support systems (BSSs) and provisioning systems with its external repository support and the event-based
Cisco IOS Software XML interface that effectively “workflow-enables” Cisco device deployment. Service providers also can manage the Cisco
ME 2400 Series using SNMP versions 2 and 3. A comprehensive set of MIBs is provided for service providers to collect traffic information on
the Cisco ME 2400 Series.
Applications
The purpose-built Cisco ME 2400 Series switches help service providers offer a portfolio of profitable, differentiated services such as tripleplay services for the ETTH market.
Triple-Play Service
Triple-play service is a popular choice for service providers. By combining Internet access, voice, and video services, service providers can
generate higher average revenue per unit (ARPU). Triple-play service provides additional value by increasing customer retention. The Cisco
ME 2400 Series switches are optimized for triple-play service. By delivering the primary features in the areas of quality of service (QoS),
multicast, and security, the Cisco ME 2400 Series helps service providers deploy successful triple-play service (Figure 2).
