The Cisco C3KX-SM-10G offers enhanced security and Flexible NetFlow (FNF) features on the uplink ports. Enabling FNF at the access can ensure visibility and monitoring of all flows. This module also provides MACsec (802.1AE) hardware-based encryption for the network/uplink ports.
The Cisco C3KX-SM-10G module has custom dedicated hardware for FNF monitoring and dedicated hardware for MACsec. Therefore, there is no effect on packet forwarding performance and latency. The 3750-X and 3560-X series can support one of four optional network modules for uplink ports. The default switch configuration does not include an uplink module, but at the time of switch purchase you may choose to add one.
