PRODUCT BULLETIN NO. 3041
Cisco Systems ® is pleased to introduce the new Cisco ® Catalyst ® 2960 Series Intelligent Ethernet switches, a new line of fixed-configuration standalone devices that provide desktop Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for entry-level enterprise, mid-market, and branch office networks, helping enable enhanced LAN services. The Catalyst 2960 Series offers integrated security, including network admission control (NAC), as well as advanced quality of service (QoS) and resiliency, delivering intelligent services for the network edge.
The series also includes a number of hardware enhancements for network managers, including configurations featuring dual-purpose (alternatively wired) uplinks for Gigabit Ethernet, allowing the network manager to use either a copper or a fiber uplink. Also included is a 24-port Gigabit Ethernet family member, accelerating Gigabit to the Desktop (GTTD) across the network.
Table 1 provides brief descriptions of the switches in the Catalyst 2960 Series.
