Is encryption supported on switch 3750E? What are the difference betweeen IOS IP Base and IP Service for 3750E?

The 3750E feature website only says IOS IP Base or IP Services. What are the difference between IP Base and IP Services. Where can we find the details?

Encryption is not supported on the 3750E.The 3750-X switch that was released not too long ago supports MacSec encryption on the downlink ports.

IP Base provides you with Layer 2 features and basic Layer 3 functionality such as static routing, RIP and EIGRP stub. IP Services provides you with Layer 2 features and full Layer 3 functionality, i.e OSPF, EIGRP, BGP, Policy-Based Routing, IPv6 in HW, etc.

The IP base is for the Standard Multilayer Software Image (SMI) switches, and the IP services image is for the Enhanced Standard Multilayer Software Image (EMI) switches in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(25)SEB and later.

The IP Base feature set includes advanced quality of service (QoS), rate limiting, access control lists (ACLs), and basic static and Routing Information Protocol (RIP) functions. Dynamic IP routing protocols (Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), BGPv4, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)) are available only on the IP services image.

The IP Services image provides a richer set of enterprise-class features, which includes advanced hardware-based IP unicast and IP Multicast routing. Support for IPv6 Layer 3 switching in hardware is also available with the addition of the Advanced IP Services license to either the IP Base or the IP Services images. Both the IP base Image and the IP services image allow for Layer 3 and Layer 4 lookups for QoS and security.

  1. Depends what you mean by 'encryption'. The 'k9' versions of both the IPBase and IPServices for the 3750e support 'encryption' in the form of ssh encrypted terminal access, https ssl web management access, and scp encrypted file copy, although neither will terminate a vpn tunnel.
