Cisco Systems is pleased to introduce four new 10/100/1000 hardware configurations for 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 LAN access or branch offices, combining both 10/100/1000 and PoE configurations for maximum productivity and investment protection while enabling 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 four hardware configurations have been added to the Cisco Catalyst 3560 Series:
• Cisco Catalyst 3560G-24TS-24 Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports and 4 Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP)-based Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1 rack unit (1RU)
• Cisco Catalyst 3560G-24PS-24 Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports with PoE and 4 SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1RU
• Cisco Catalyst 3560G-48PS-48 Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports with PoE and 4 SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports; 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 multicast routing, policy-based routing (PBR). After initial deployment, the Cisco Catalyst 3560 EMI Upgrade Kit gives users the flexibility to upgrade to the EMI.
