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.
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.
