- X Layer 2/3 EtherSwitch Service Module
- 24 x 10/100/1000 (PoE+)
- plug-in module
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 traverses between the switch module and other network entities or between buildings, this traffic can be encrypted at Layer 2 using MACsec.
