Cisco Systems offers a family of Fast Ethernet (FE) port adapters optimized for the specific requirements of campus and enterprise backbones and data centers. The Cisco FE port-adapter options provide either one or two ports of 100BaseTX (copper) or 100BaseFX (fiber) Fast Ethernet ports per adapter. Each port can be configured for half- and full-duplex operation.
Fast Ethernet single-wide port adapters are available for the Cisco 7200, 7301, 7304, 7500 and 7600 Series routers.
• Dual-port Fast Ethernet 100BaseTX (PA-2FE-TX)
• Dual-port Fast Ethernet 100BaseFX (PA-2FE-FX)
Cisco Fast Ethernet port adapters may be used in an open port-adapter slot on Cisco 7200 and 7301 Series routers, open bay within Cisco second- and fourth-generation Versatile Interface Processors (VIP2 and VIP4) on Cisco 7500 Series routers or on Cisco 7304 with PA Carrier Card. Portability between these systems simplifies ordering and minimizes overall support and sparing costs.
SINGLE- AND DUAL-PORT FAST ETHERNET PORT ADAPTERS
The dual-port Fast Ethernet port adapters (PA-2FE-TX, and PA-2FE-FX) provide the highest packet throughput available for Cisco 7200, 7300, 7500 and 7600 Series routers. These adapters are the preferred choice for campus/enterprise backbones, data centers, campus-to-WAN connections, and high-performance routing between multiple Ethernet virtual LANs (VLANs).
The PA-2FE-TX port adapter supports either 10- or 100-Mbps configurations with auto-negotiation. This enables auto-selection of the appropriate network speed and duplex mode. The PA-2FE-FX supports 100-Mbps.
