Product Overview

The Cisco® SGE2010 48-Port Gigabit Switch (Figure 1) allows you to expand your network securely. Web-based configuration of the switch is secured using SSL.

The Cisco SGE2010 is optimized for maximum system availability, with fully redundant stacking, redundant power options, and dual images for resilient firmware upgrades. The switch helps secure the network through IEEE 802.1Q VLANs, IEEE 802.1X port authentication, access control lists (ACLs), denial-of-service DoS prevention, and MAC-based filtering. The enhanced quality of service (QoS) and traffic-management features help ensure clear and reliable voice and video communications.

The Cisco SGE2010 provides resilient stacking for up to four units, or 192 ports. A stack of units is managed as a single switch with one web management interface. The Cisco SGE2010 can coexist in a stack with the Cisco SGE2000 and SGE2000P 24-Port Gigabit Switches and the Cisco SGE2010P 48-Port Gigabit Switch, for a maximum of 192 ports in a stack. The stacking capability includes master/backup unit behavior, ring and chain architecture, and hot insertion and removal of units.

An intuitive, highly secure management interface provides access to the comprehensive feature set of the Cisco SGE2010, for a better-optimized, more secure network.
