Product Information

Full Description


The Cisco ME 3800X series carrier Ethernet switch router is a converged, full-featured aggregation platform purposely designed for the mobile, business, and residential markets. With low power consumption and high service scale, this 1-rack-unit (1RU) switch router is optimized for small aggregation and remote point-of-presence (POP) applications making it a highly cost effective option.

  • Broadband aggregation
  • Pre-aggregation for mobile applications
  • Metro Ethernet aggregation
  • Cisco carrier Ethernet ASIC
  • High-performance hardware
  • Broadband aggregation
    The Cisco ME 3800X series supports broadband aggregation for delivering "any-play" services (voice, video, data, and mobility). Designed to support thousands of subscribers, quality of service (QoS) on the Cisco ME 3800X series is capable of scaling to 32000 queues per device. This high number of queues combined with a more granular QoS algorithm results in a greatly enhanced broadband user experience. This feature-rich layer 2 and layer 3 switch routers supports a variety of broadband applications including IPTV and video on demand (VoD), enhancing and extending the Cisco IP NGN architecture.
  • Pre-aggregation for mobile applications
    Deployed as a pre-aggregation platform for mobile backhaul, the Cisco ME 3800X series can aggregate Cisco MWR 2941 cell site routers and use MPLS as a transport for Radio Access Network (RAN) backhaul traffic. The Cisco ME 3800X series offers timing services, allowing for mobile clocking synchronization from the core of the network toward the RAN. The Cisco ME 3800X series can receive clocking information into its Building Integrated Timing Supply (BITS) interface. It supports synchronous Ethernet (SynchE) with Ethernet Synchronization Messaging Channel (ESMC) to allow best clock source traceability.
  • Metro Ethernet aggregation
    The Cisco ME 3800X series is built to meet service provider requirements for carrier Ethernet aggregation. It is optimized for the remote central office (CO) and smaller aggregation sites where a fully featured, small-footprint aggregation platform is needed. The Cisco ME 3800X series offers service flexibility and delivers layer 2, IP, and MPLS transport for advanced layer 2 and layer 3 VPN and multicast services.
  • Cisco carrier Ethernet ASIC
    Powered by Cisco's carrier Ethernet ASIC, designed specifically for the needs of service providers, the Cisco ME 3800X series delivers essential carrier Ethernet technologies including: Hierarchical QoS (H-QoS), MPLS, and Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS).
  • Service richness
    With the Cisco ME 3800X series, each service is assigned enhanced QoS and security attributes. The Cisco ME 3800X series accomplishes advanced per-traffic-class metering and offers bidirectional packets and bytes statistics. The service offering is enhanced with rich operations, administration, and management (OAM) functionality including: layer 2 Connectivity Fault Management (CFM), IP SLA for layer 3, and MPLS OAM.
  • Service scale
    The Cisco ME 3800X series delivers unmatched service scalability in a 1RU footprint. With support for 256000 MAC addresses and 8000 bridge domains, this switch router delivers high performance and high scale for point-to-point and multipoint VPN services. The quantity of statistical counters enables the Cisco ME 3800X series to provide a high level of service metering and monitoring throughout its range of scale.
  • High-performance hardware
    The Cisco ME 3800X series provides two slots for hot-swappable and redundant power supply. Three fans are integrated into each power supply, providing fan redundancy. High availability is also achieved on the Cisco ME 3800X series through proactive diagnostic tools including Generic On-Line Diagnostics (GOLD) and Onboard Failure Logging (OBFL). These tools help service providers avoid potential problems before they occur and troubleshoot and diagnose once identified.
