Cisco 2300 Redundant Power Systems

The Cisco Redundant Power System 2300 (RPS 2300) increases availability for converged data, voice, and video networks. The system delivers power supply redundancy and resiliency for a variety of power requirements, including Power over Ethernet (PoE). It helps ensure uninterrupted operation and protection against device power supply failures by providing seamless failover for Cisco switches like the Cisco Catalyst® 3750-E Series Switches and routers like the Integrated Services Routers. The Cisco RPS 2300 supplies redundant power for up to two of six connected 48-port PoE devices in a convenient, 1-rack-unit form factor. When attached to Cisco Catalyst 3750-E or 3560-E Series Switches, the Cisco RPS 2300 offers additional intelligent management capabilities.

Flexibility and High Availability

The Cisco RPS 2300 can provide complete internal power supply redundancy for up to two attached networking devices. It has two power supply bays and can accept 1150W AC or 750W AC power supply modules. These power supply modules are also used with Cisco Catalyst 3750-E and 3560-E Series Switches. With two 1150W AC power supply modules, the Cisco RPS 2300 can fully back up two 48-port switches that are delivering 15.4W of PoE on all ports. The Cisco RPS 2300 also has a replaceable fan module.

Ease of Use
When connected to Cisco Catalyst 3750-E and 3560-E Series Switches, the Cisco RPS 2300 offers enhanced capabilities to manage power supply redundancy, including:
  • The ability to remotely place the RPS or any of the six individual RPS ports in active or standby mode
  • Setting priorities for each RPS port
  • RPS status reporting, such as the number of power supplies inserted or the availability to back up connected switches
  • Switch status reporting, such as a list of the power requirements of each of the attached switches
  • Failure and exception history reporting

These capabilities are accessible through the switch's command line interface (CLI), or through graphical user interface (GUI) tools such as the Cisco Network Assistant and CiscoWorks CiscoView.

The default failover behavior for the RPS is "first-come, first-served." Default priorities can be overridden with a programmable priority, and higher-priority ports can be programmed to supersede lower-priority ports. This feature gives the network administrator the flexibility to define the RPS failover policy.

When a failure is detected, the Cisco RPS 2300 sends status information that can be monitored through Cisco Network Assistant. In addition, Cisco Catalyst 3750-E, 3750, 3560-E, 3560, 3550, 2960, and 2950 Series Switches send a trap in the event of an internal power supply failure, allowing the Cisco RPS 2300 to back up the failed switch.
