Cisco Catalyst Switch Module 3012 for BladeCenter
Product Guide (withdrawn product)
The Cisco Catalyst Switch Module 3012 is a Gigabit Ethernet Switch Module in a standard switch-bay form-
factor for use in all BladeCenter chassis. This non-stacking switch is a full wire-rated, non-blocking switch
for use with high performance servers.
This switch provides a next generation networking solution for blade server environments. Built upon
Cisco's market-leading hardware and IOS software, the switch is designed to deliver scalable, high
performance, highly resilient connectivity while supporting ongoing IT initiatives around reducing server
infrastructure complexity and TCO by seamlessly integrating into existing Cisco management networks.

    The switch uses standard Category 5, 5e, or 6 cabling with RJ-45 connectors. These cables are not supplied with the switch. Features The supported features and specifications for the Cisco Catalyst 3012 switch module are: Ports: Four external RJ-45 1000BASE-T connectors for making 10/100/1000 Mbps connections to a backbone, end stations, and servers.

    Support for multiple EtherChannel load balance algorithms (SMAC or DMAC, SIP or DIP, XOR- SMAC/DMAC or XOR-SIP/DIP) to offer maximum performance on aggregated links. Manageability features: Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) for identifying a switch through its IP address and its corresponding MAC address.

    Optional spanning tree features available in the PVST+, rapid PVST+, and MSTP modes. Flex Link Layer 2 interfaces to back up one another as an alternative to STP for basic link redundancy. VLAN support: Support for 1005 total VLANs. These VLANs can be any VLAN ID from 1–4094, except 1001–1005, which are reserved by Cisco.
