What are Cisco Cards?
Cisco Cards, or modules, refer to hardware components that can be installed in a Cisco Catalyst System to expand its functionality and adapt it to specific network requirements. These modules may include different types of interfaces (such as Ethernet or fiber ports), power supplies, or additional processors, among others. By utilizing these modules, network administrators can customize their systems to cater to a variety of network scenarios and demands.
