Layer 2 10/100 Unmanaged Switch
|The Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series Switch is a fixed-configuration, stackable standalone switch that provides wire-speed Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.|
Layer 2 10/100 Managed Switch with Gigabit ports
|The Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series Intelligent Ethernet Switches are a family of fixed-configuration standalone devices that provide desktop 10/100 Fast Ethernet and 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for entry-level enterprise, medium-sized, and branch office networks to enable enhanced LAN services.|
Layer 3 Gigabit Managed Switch with PoE functionality
|The Cisco Catalyst 3560 Series is a line of fixed-configuration, enterprise-class switches that include IEEE 802.3af and Cisco pre-standard Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality in Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet configurations. The Cisco Catalyst 3560 is an ideal access layer switch for small enterprise LAN access or branch-office environments, combining both 10/100/1000 and PoE configurations for maximum productivity and investment protection while enabling the deployment of new applications such as IP telephony, wireless access, video surveillance, building management systems, and remote video kiosks. Clients can deploy networkwide intelligent services-such as advanced quality of service (QoS), rate limiting, access control lists (ACLs), multicast management, and high-performance IP routing-while maintaining the simplicity of traditional LAN switching.|
Layer 4 Gigabit Managed Switches
Cisco® Catalyst® 4500 Series switches (Figure 1) integrate nonblocking Layer 2-4 switching with optimal control, helping enable business resilience for enterprises, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and Metro Ethernet customers deploying business-critical applications.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series extends control to the network edge with intelligent network services, including sophisticated quality of service (QoS), predictable performance, advanced security, and comprehensive management.
The modular architecture, media flexibility, and expandability of the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series extends deployment life while reducing the cost of ownership by minimizing recurring operational expenses and improving return on investment (ROI).
