Cisco® is introducing the Cisco Catalyst® 2960 Series Switches with LAN Lite Software, new members of the Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series of fixed-configuration standalone switches for entry-level enterprise, midmarket, and small branch office networks. These three Cisco Catalyst 2960 Switches with LAN Lite Cisco IOS® Software simplify the migration from nonintelligent hubs and unmanaged switches to a fully scalable managed network. The LAN Lite Cisco IOS Software provides entry-level security, quality of service (QoS), and availability capabilities while lowering the network total cost of ownership. Table 1 provides brief descriptions of the Cisco Catalyst LAN Lite switches.
