Cisco® is introducing the Cisco Catalyst® 2960 Series Power over Ethernet (PoE) 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), PoE, and availability capabilities while lowering the network total cost of ownership. Table 1 provides brief descriptions of the Cisco Catalyst LAN Lite switches.

• PoE eliminates the need for wall power outlets for each PoE-enabled device and significantly reduces the cost for additional electrical cabling.

• Scalable and secure network management.

• Baseline Network Admission Control based on users, ports, and MAC addresses.

• Easy network configuration, Cisco IOS Software updates, and troubleshooting using the embedded device manager and Cisco Network Assistant.

• DHCP Auto install with Cisco Auto Smartports for easy configuration and installation.

• Enhanced troubleshooting for link connectivity issues and cable diagnostics.

• QoS and support for multicast services.
