High-availability features help ensure nonstop connectivity and business continuity. In-service software upgrades virtually eliminate downtime for updates, while the virtual switching system (VSS) enables two active switches to appear as one, with a single point of management.

Consistent Experience

Only Cisco extends consistent network services – for security, video, wireless, network management, and more – from the user edge through campus distribution, core, and the data center. Integrated services modules in Catalyst 6500 Series Switches reduce network footprint and simplify management.

Application Visibility

Cisco Flexible NetFlow technology helps enable customers to view traffic flows granularly to the application level. Greater control over flow data helps speed responses to mitigate attacks, adjust bandwidth provisioning, and enable continuous monitoring.

Simplified Operations

Cisco Catalyst SmartOperations brings together a set of technologies and Cisco IOS Software features to simplify network planning, deployment, monitoring, and troubleshooting, lowering IT operating costs and total cost of ownership.
