- 16 x 10/100/1000 (UPOE) + 8 x 100/1000/2.5G/5G/10G (UPOE) + 2 x 10 Gigabit SFP+ (uplink)
The Cisco Catalyst switch is the enterprise-class standalone and stackable access-layer switch, that provides the foundation for full convergence between wired and wireless on a single platform. The switch is built on the advanced Cisco StackWise-160, and takes advantage of the Cisco Unified Access Data Plane (UADP) application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC). This switch can enable uniform wired-wireless policy enforcement, application visibility, flexibility, application optimization, and superior resiliency. The switch supports full IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), Cisco Universal Power over Ethernet (Cisco UPOE) on the Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit switches, and offer modular and field-replaceable redundant fans and power supplies. The switch also comes in a lower-depth form factor, so that you can deploy it in tight wiring closets in remote branches and offices, where depth of the switch is a concern. In addition, the Multigigabit switch supports wireless speeds and standards (including 802.11ac Wave 2) on existing cabling infrastructure. The switch helps increase wireless productivity and reduce TCO.
