Connectivity between company networks requires scalable solutions capable of providing high port speeds of 1 Gb to 100 Gb with different types of interfaces. The wide range of switches from Cisco provide companies with the very best solutions, whatever their needs.
What are the solutions provided by Cisco switches?
Cisco is a manufacturer that provides the most cutting-edge technological solutions and exceptional service quality. Their range of switches offers a variety of different options, from cost-effective solutions for small companies to sophisticated systems designed for industrial environments, campuses, data centres, digital buildings and any other kind of access and LAN distribution solution, in the core or the edge.
These solutions are specially designed to provide scalable formulas and enable the development of indispensable intent-based networks. The new fixed and modular LAN switch designs from Cisco, for core, distribution or access, work with all kinds of architecture to provide a fully flexible solution. They provide communication levels capable of managing extremely high volumes of data traffic through a variety of different interfaces, cables and protocols, meeting the very highest security and reliability standards.
Cisco switches also offer all kinds of solutions for cloud-based or total-control architecture that allow networks to grow and adapt to the different needs of each business. Some switches provide solutions for fast ethernet at 100 Mbps, for smaller networks, while others Cisco switches offer high-speed cable solutions for gigabit ethernet, which can reach up to 1000 Mbps There are switches designed for Power over Ethernet (PoE) that can be powered via any type of data cable, in either a fixed or modular configuration.
Increased security with Cisco switches
The Catalyst 900 switches from Cisco offer the most advanced intelligent security management, with access managed through the use of intelligent software. This management is automatic and is based on parametrization to establish consistent rules and user policies for secure segmentation.
This means that not only does it deliver security, but it also provides an excellent user experience and more efficient and agile IT operations, offering a comprehensive improvement to security and complying with all regulations. This technology is suitable for both cable and wireless networks. The immediate result of providing such a high level of security for all processes is being able to access much more useful information.
Another aspect that offers further improvement to security is the potential to incorporate intelligent DNA analysis into these Cisco Catalyst switches. This feature enables network transfers to be analysed through the use of modern artificial intelligence and automatic learning systems, thus lightening the workload for administrators. In addition to improving security with continual real-time auditing and automatically applying improvements, it also drastically increases performance and reduces both noise and false positives.
And with the Meraki line of Cisco switches, all of this potential can be achieved in the cloud. This range offers the perfect balance of simplicity and power. They are specially designed for remote access and provide a number of excellent features, such as virtual stacking, which enables thousands of ports to be configured simultaneously, regardless of the physical location of the switch, multicast routing and APL. They enable remote management from any web browser, speeding up problem resolution and providing robust, scalable and secure performance.
Scalability with the Cisco Catalyst series
The high-quality and durable switches from the Cisco Catalyst series are designed to last and to evolve along with the company, adapting to its needs as they develop in the future. A Cisco switch that may currently be the basis of a small or medium-sized network may also integrate perfectly into the future architecture of a much larger network or a communication system between several networks.
A great example of this scalability is the Cisco Catalyst 2960 range, which incorporates the most cutting-edge technology to maximise the potential of gigabit ethernet and is equipped with a Power over Ethernet (PoE) system. It is available in two different versions, fixed or Smart Managed, and is a first step in the growth towards a reliable solution for network communication between branches and mobile devices. It is extremely user-friendly and easy to configure, making it ideal for designing a new network for a small company in just a few clicks, while also opening the door to unlimited growth. In addition to removing the need for power supply cables, it also allows IEEE 802.1x multi-domain authentication, using the same port for both voice and data VLANs.
Another option is the Catalyst 3850, designed for 802.11ac Wave 2 and other new technologies. Multigigabit of up to 10 Gbps, available with cables or wireless, and stackable, so it can grow.
As you can see, the Cisco switch range offers a wide variety of solutions to meet all needs, whether they be current or future. And they always come with quality service and an additional warranty from Zoostock.
