Supply and delivery of a Rack-mount Network Switch complete with Internetwork operating system, mounting brackets and installation and operations manuals.
- PARTICULARS OF THE SWITCH
- Architectural Design
- Multicore processors.
High-performance multicore processors support high-speed LAN connections. The data plane uses an emulated Flow Processor (FP) that delivers application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC)-like performance that does not degrade as services are added.
- Gigabit Ethernet ports.
The Switch should provide 48 built-in 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports with line-rate forwarding performance for LAN connectivity. Based on the platform, 4 of the 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports must support Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) uplinks or fixed 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ uplinks.
3.1.3 USB –based console access
A mini type-B USB console port is needed to support management connectivity when traditional serial ports are not available. Traditional console and auxiliary ports must also be available.
- Integrated Services Card (ISC) slot on motherboard.
Integrated Services Card natively supports High-Density Packet Voice Digital Signal Processor Modules (PVDM4s), providing greater-density rich-media voice.
- Flash memory support
A single flash memory slot of 8GB should be available to support high-speed storage densities, upgradable to 32 GB.
The default control plane memory should be 4 GB, upgradable to 16 GB to provide additional scalability for control-plane features. The default data-plane memory should be 2 GB.
- Network Management Solutions
- Device staging and configuration
Device management with web UI , over-the-air access via Bluetooth, Command-Line-Interface, Simple Network Management Protocol and RJ-45 or USB Console access.
- Network-wide deployment, configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting
Network management with Cisco Prime, Cisco Plug and Play, and Cisco DNA Centre.
- Context-aware security configuration and monitoring
Required as a Management tool for configuring and managing context-aware security. The application should support both single and multi-device manager form factors.
- IP Service-Level Agreements (IP SLAs)
Helps assure the performance of new business-critical IP applications as well as IP services that use data and voice in an IP network.
Required for Network monitoring and accounting tools.
The Switch shall support the following protocols.
Layer 3 features with routed access (OSPF), static routing and RIP.
Visibility with Domain Name system as an Authoritative Source (DNS-AS) and Full (Flexible) Netflow.
Security with 802.1x, Serial port Analyser (SPAN) and Bridge Protocol Data Unit (BPDU) guard.
RSTP, PVST and VTP.
The Switch shall support the following features:
Stacking with FlexStack-Plus and FlexStack-Extended.
- LANGUAGE, UNITS AND STANDARDS
All correspondence, descriptions, drawings, illustrations or instructions shall be in unambiguous English Language. SI units of measurements shall be used throughout.
- TECHNICAL GUARANTEE SCHEDULE
