Cisco Systems® is pleased to introduce two new 10/100 switch models to the Cisco® Catalyst® 3560 Series.
The Cisco Catalyst 3560 Series is a line of fixed-configuration, enterprise-class switches that include IEEE 802.3af and Cisco prestandard Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality in Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet configurations. The Cisco Catalyst 3560 is an ideal access layer switch for small enterprise wiring closets or branch offices, combining both 10/100/1000 and PoE configurations for maximum productivity and investment protection while helping enable the deployment of new applications such as IP telephony, wireless access, video surveillance, building management systems, and remote video kiosks. Customers can deploy networkwide intelligent services, such as advanced quality of service (QoS), rate limiting, access control lists (ACLs), multicast management, and high-performance IP routing, while maintaining the simplicity of traditional LAN switching.
The following two new switch models have been added to the Cisco Catalyst 3560 Series:
• Cisco Catalyst 3560-24TS-24 Ethernet 10/100 ports and 2 Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP)-based Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1 rack unit (1RU)
The Cisco Catalyst 3560 Series switches are available in the standard multilayer software image (SMI) or the enhanced multilayer software image (EMI). The SMI feature set includes advanced QoS, rate limiting, ACLs, and basic static and Routing Information Protocol (RIP) routing functions. The EMI provides a richer set of enterprise-class features, including advanced hardware-based IP unicast and IP Multicast routing as well as policy-based routing (PBR). After initial deployment, the Cisco Catalyst 3560 EMI Upgrade Kit gives users the flexibility to upgrade to the EMI. The Cisco Advanced IP Services license offers IPv6 routing.
