Guys

Modules for Wism,FWSM,WLC,ACE goes without interfaces on it,so how the connectivity happened?

Re: Modules

For example the FWSM does not include any external physical interfaces. Instead, it uses VLAN interfaces. Assigning VLANs to the FWSM is similar to assigning a VLAN to a switch port; the FWSM includes an internal interface to the Switch Fabric Module (if present) or the shared bus.

Re: Modules

Likewise the ACE modules uses internal vlan interfaces.

Re: Modules

Thanks Fransisco,what is the role of the backplane here in this situation

Re: Modules

The FWSM  uses the backplane of the switch to get connect to the network with a 5Gbps uplink to the backplane, which is potentially a lot better than the 1Gbps on a physical interface.
