Product Configuration Software
48 10/100 and 2 10/100/1000BASE-T ports
48 10/100 and 2 1000BASE-SX ports
The Cisco Catalyst 2950T-48-SI and 2950SX-48-SI switches are cost-effective, standalone Layer 2 managed switches. They join the Cisco Catalyst 2950SX-24, Cisco Catalyst 2950-24, and Cisco Catalyst 2950-12 switches as part of the Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series product line with Standard Image (SI) software. The dual integrated 10/100/1000BASE-T and 1000BASE-SX ports on the þCatalyst 2950T-48-SI and the Catalyst 2950SX-48-SI provide redundancy and þhigher availability, as well as a cost-effective means for cascading switches and managing them as a cluster. No Gigabit Interface Converters (GBICs) are required. These switches are extremely easy to install with þExpress Setup and manage with Cisco Cluster Management Suite (CMS) Software, an embedded Web-based management tool that allows users to configure and troubleshoot up to 16 Catalyst desktop switches using aþsingle IP address.

The Cisco Catalyst 2950SX-48-SI and 2950T-48-SI switches are ideal for education, state and local governments, and commercial customers that want basic connectivity and require more than 24 ports. For stacking and intelligent services, the Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series Switch, the Cisco Catalyst 3550 Series Switch, and the Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches with Enhanced Image software offer more advanced security, quality of service (QoS), scalability, and availability functions. The Catalyst 2950SX-48-SI, 2950T-48-SI, 2950SX-24, 2950-24, and 2950-12 switches cannot be upgraded to the Enhanced Image (EI) software.
Customers that require 48 ports and the intelligent Ethernet services offered by the Cisco Catalyst 2950T-24 Switch (with Enhanced Image) can buy two Cisco Catalyst 2950T-24 switches or the Cisco Catalyst 2950G-48 Switch.
The Cisco Catalyst 2950T-48-SI and Cisco Catalyst 2950SX-48-SI switches are Layer 2 switches aggressively priced to compete against 3Com, HP, and Dell products. Ordering information for these two new Cisco Catalyst 2950 switches follows.
•48 10/100 + 2 10/100/1000BASE-T ports
•Standard Image (SI)
•48 10/100 + 2 1000BASE-SX ports
•Standard Image (SI)
The Cisco Catalyst 2950T-48-SI and Cisco Catalyst 2950SX-48-SI switches extend the Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series and augment Cisco switching products, including the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series, Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series, Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series, Cisco Catalyst 3550 Series, Cisco Catalyst 2970 Series, and Cisco Catalyst 2940 Series switches.
The new Cisco Catalyst 2950T-48-SI and Cisco Catalyst 2950SX-48-SI switches will begin shipping in late October 2003.
