Cisco SG300 10/100/1000 Managed Switch Product Overview
The CiscoSG 300 Switch allows you to connect small office devices, such as computers, printers, and wireless access points, giving employees fast, reliable access to the resources they need. Gigabit Ethernet connectivity provides optimal network performance, ensuring availability of your business-critical applications. The SG300 switches also provides the flexibility you need to interconnect a variety of devices across your network, including voice, security, and wireless solutions. In addition, this device offers several advanced networking features, including support for Layer 3 switching between VLANs for advanced traffic management as well as IPv6, remote management, and dual images support.
Built-in security keeps your network and data safe
The SG300 includes a number of security features that let you tightly control access to your network, safeguarding the integrity of your data. Using access control lists (ACLs), you can authenticate and regulate new connections to your network, keeping unwanted users away from your business-critical information. With this device, you also can segment your network and provide a secure section for visitors by using the integrated guest VLAN capability.
In addition to strong security features, the Cisco 300 Series Switches provide business-class communication capabilities, such as support for IP telephony. If you already have IP phones connected to your company’s network, the switch will automatically configure the phones with the correct VLAN and quality-of-service (QoS) parameters to prioritize voice traffic.
It just works so you can focus on your business
The SG300 is an eco-friendly switch that’s been designed to conserve energy, which will save you money. The switch uses low-power chipsets and other “green” features to help protect the environment and optimize power consumption without compromising performance. And a fanless design further reduces energy costs while enabling quieter operation.
Cisco designed the 300 Series Switches to be easy to configure and to manage. Intuitive browser-based tools and mass deployment capabilities speed setup and reduce the amount of time you need to spend on network management tasks, such as QoS traffic prioritization. Cisco provides a limited lifetime warranty with next-business-day advance replacement (where available), software updates, and telephone technical support free of charge for the first 12 months. Also, the SG 300 is backed by the Cisco Small Business Support Service, an affordable three-year subscription-based plan that provides peace of mind and additional investment protection
Cisco SG300 Features:
10, 20, 28, or 52 ports of Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) connectivity deliver excellent performance for high-bandwidth applications
Integrated IP telephony support automatically configures connected IP phones with the correct VLAN and quality-of-service (QoS) parameters to prioritize voice traffic
Advanced security features, including access control lists (ACLs) and guest VLANs, allow users to tightly control small business networks
Energy-efficient features such as low-power chipsets and a fanless design help reduce power consumption and enables quiter operatio
IPv6 and IPv4 support: The Cisco 300 Series provides native support for IPv6, the newest version of the Internet Protocol, as well as the previous IPv4 standard. As a result, you will be able to move up to the next generation of networking applications and operating systems without an extensive equipment upgrade.
PoE option: Cisco 300 Series Switches are available with up to 28 PoE ports of Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. This capability simplifies advanced technology deployments such as IP telephony, wireless, and IP surveillance by allowing you to connect and power network endpoints over a single Ethernet cable. With no need to install separate power supplies for IP phones or wireless access points, you can take advantage of advanced communications technologies more quickly, and at a lower cost.
Expansion ports: The Cisco 300 Series provides more ports per Gigabit Ethernet switch than traditional switch models, giving you more flexibility to connect and empower your business. Gigabit Ethernet models feature 28- and 52-port switches, versus traditional devices that offer 20 or 44 ports with four shared ports giving you more value. The Cisco 300 Series also offers mini gigabit interface converter (mini-GBIC) expansion slots that give you the option to add fiber-optic or Gigabit Ethernet uplink connectivity to the switch. With the ability to increase the connectivity range of the switches, you have more flexibility to design your network around your unique business environment, and to easily connect switches on different floors or across the business.
Limited lifetime warranty provides next-business-day advance replacement (where available), software updates, and one year of free telephone technical support
