Cisco NPE-G2, including 1-GB DRAM and 256-MB flash memory
Connectivity • Gigabit Ethernet ports-Three 10/100/1000-Mbps ports are available on the Cisco NPE-G2 (Figure 2). Each of these ports provides either copper or optical connectivity (via Small Form Factor Pluggable optics (SFP)). • Gigabit Ethernet port features-All three ports support the IEEE 802.1Q standard. • The Cisco NPE-G2 supports three types of Small Form Factor Pluggable optics (SFP) interfaces-Short wave (SX), long wave/long haul (LX/LH), and extended wavelength (ZX) for varying fiber length requirements. • Console and auxiliary ports-The Cisco NPE-G2 has a console port and an auxiliary port, and it handles the other functions of the I/O controller, the need for an I/O controller is eliminated. However, an I/O controller can still be used, if desired. If an I/O controller is detected in the I/O controller slot, the I/O controller function defaults to the I/O controller (with the exception of NVRAM and bootflash memory). The console and auxiliary ports of the Cisco NPE-G2 are then disabled. • Management 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port-This Ethernet port is strictly dedicated for management purposes.
