Cisco SF500-24P Features:
- -- Easy deployment and use: Intuitive graphical interfaces, remote management capabilities, Textview command-line interface, Cisco Configuration Assistant, and automated deployment tools simplify setup and configuration.
- -- High reliability and resiliency: Stacking capabilities, dual images, and advanced redundancy protocols keep your customers' networks running, even after a major failure.
- -- True stacking: Some switches claim to support stacking but in practice must be managed and configured individually. Cisco 500 Series switches allow you to manage and configure multiple switches in a stack as a single unit, with a single IP address. A true stack delivers a unified data and control plane, in addition to management plane, providing flexibility, scalability, and ease of use since the stack of units operate as a single entity constituting all the ports of the stack members. This capability can radically reduce complexity in a growing network environment while improving the resiliency and availability of network applications. True stacking also provides other cost savings and administrative benefits through features such as cross-stack QoS, VLANs, and port mirroring, which clustered switches can't support.
- -- Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+): The switches support the PoE+ standard, providing up to 30 watts per port to power wireless access points, video cameras, IP phones, and more. Legacy POE as well as 802.3af POE is also supported.
- --Strong security: Use access control lists (ACLs), guest virtual LANs (VLANs), encrypted management data, IEEE 802.1X security, and other advanced network defense mechanisms features such as ARP Inspection and DHCP Snooping to safeguard customer networks.
- -- Advanced IP telephony support: Cisco 500 Series switches automatically configure connected IP phones with the right VLAN and quality of service (QoS) parameters to prioritize voice traffic.
- --Advanced traffic management: The Cisco 500 Series includes models that support static (500 models) and dynamic (500X models) Layer 3 routing capabilities, giving you more flexibility to organize and optimize your customers' networks.
- --IPv6: Cisco 500 Series switches support your customers' transition to next generation networking and operating systems with support for IPv6. The switches have completed rigorous IPv6 testing and have received the USGv6 and IPv6 Gold certification.
- -- Power efficiency: Low-power chipsets, fanless designs, and other "green" features reduce power consumption and enable quieter operation.
- --Expandability: The 500 models offer 1 Gigabit Ethernet or 5 Gigabit Ethernet expansion slots, and the 500X models offer 10 Gigabit Ethernet expansion slots.
- --Customer peace of mind: The switches have been rigorously tested to deliver the reliability customers expect from Cisco, and to easily integrate with other Cisco voice, video, security, and networking products.
- -- Limited lifetime warranty:The switches are backed by a limited lifetime warranty with next-business-day advance replacement, software application updates for bug fixes for the warranty term, and telephone technical support at no charge for the first 12 months following the date of purchase.
- --Investment protection: The Cisco Small Business Investment Protection program gives customers credit for the value of their 500 Series switch when they are ready to upgrade (United States and Canada only).
