Resolution
The M580 connectivity to a RemoteIO Drop module is a proprietary solution.
That means you have to use only Schneider Ethernet RemoteIO capable switches for which Schneider supplies the correct configuration file.
Unfortunately, we do not have a solution involving the use of third party switches , such as Cisco.
Please review Chapter 2, in the  Modicon M580 - System Planning Guide for Complex Topologies, on the approved switches for use in a M580 Ethernet RemoteIO system.
