GE-4 IOA

IOA labelES2-S1 GE-4 IOA
Number of IOA ports
  • 4
Software release
  • First supported: 7.0.1
Description
  • 21 W maximum
  • Half-height module
  • See Module and Slot Combinations for more information on combining IOAs in a slot.
  • Uses a range of small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers to support different modes and cable lengths.
  • Uses either optical or copper SFPs.
    • The optical transceivers are 1000Base-SX, 1000Base-LX, and 1000Base-ZX compliant.
    • The copper transceivers are 1000Base-T compliant.
  • Single-strand SFPs can be used. These SFPs work in pairs and require a matching SFP at the opposite end of the Ethernet connection. For example, an SFP rated at TX 1310, RX 1550 must be paired with an SFP rated TX 1550, RX 1310 with the same maximum operating range. See the following corresponding table (Single-strand SFPs Pairing) for more information.
Capability
  • Ethernet (IEEE 802.3x)
  • 1000Base-SX/LX/ZX
Software features
  • See Ethernet IOAs for information about the layer 2 and layer 3 protocols and applications that this module combination supports.
Model compatibility
  • E320 router
  • E120 router
Line module compatibility
