The Cisco Catalyst 2912MF XL Fast Ethernet switch combines outstanding performance, ease of use, and integrated Cisco IOS software from the leader in networking. The Catalyst 2912MF XL is a flexible, scalable, and affordable solution, ideal for aggregating Fast Ethernet workgroups over 100Base-FX connections in small and midsized campus environments. The Catalyst 2912MF XL switch, a member of the Catalyst 2900 Series XL family, contains 12 100Base-FX ports and two versatile module slots to provide unmatched expansion capabilities and high-speed connectivity. The modular design allows users to easily add 10Base-T/100Base-T, 100Base-FX, Gigabit Ethernet, or ATM (OC-3) ports to increase port density and deliver high-speed uplinks. With the Gigabit Ethernet module, Catalyst 2912MF XL switches (as well as the Catalyst 2924M XL switch) can be stacked (up to nine switches) with the low-cost Cisco GigaStack GBIC. The advanced Cisco architecture incorporates a switch fabric of 3.2 Gbps and a forwarding rate of 3.0 million pps to deliver wire-speed performance across all ports.

Additional Specifications
ManagementSNMP Management Information Base (MIB) IISNMP MIB extensions, Bridging MIB (RFC 1493) Comprehensive Manageability:Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and Telnet interface support delivers comprehensive in-band management, and the Cisco IOS CLI-based management console provides detailed out-of-band managementCMS, a built-in Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) server, provides an ease-of-use Web-based management interface through a standard browser such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft ExplorerThe switch is manageable through CiscoWorks Windows and CiscoWorks 2000 network management software on a per-port and per-switch basis, providing a common management interface for Cisco routers, switches, and hubsCisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) enables a CiscoWorks network management station to automatically discover the switch in a network topologyAn embedded Remote Monitoring (RMON) software agent supports four RMON groups (history, statistics, alarms, and events) for enhanced traffic management, monitoring, and analysisCisco IOS software supports all nine RMON groups through use of a Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) port, which permits high-performance traffic monitoring of a single port, a group of ports, or the entire switch from a single network analyzer or RMON probeAutoconfiguration eases deployment of switches in the network by automatically configuring multiple switches across a network via a boot serverTrivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) reduces the cost of administering software upgrades by enabling downloads from a centralized locationEach port includes a multifunction LED for port status, half-duplex/full-duplex, and 10Base-T/100Base-T indications as well as switch-level status LEDs for system, module status, redundant power supply (RPS), and bandwidth utilization, providing a comprehensive and convenient visual management systemDomain Name Services (DNS) client support provides IP address resolution with user-defined device namesNetwork Time Protocol (NTP) provides an accurate and consistent timestamp to all switches within the intranetSpanning Tree Root Guard (STRG) prevents devices not in the network administrator's or service provider's control from becoming STP root nodesCisco Virtual Trunking Protocol (VTP) Pruning limits broadcasts on VTP trunks. When VTP pruning is enabled, broadcast traffic is flooded only on trunk links required to reach the destination devices
