Built for security, IoT, mobility, and cloud

The Cisco® Catalyst® 9300 Series switches are Cisco’s lead stackable enterprise switching platform built for security, IoT, mobility, and cloud. They are the next generation of the industry’s most widely deployed switching platform. Catalyst 9300 Series switches form the foundational building block for Software-Defined Access (SD-Access), Cisco’s lead enterprise architecture. At up to 1TB, they are the industry’s highest-density stacking bandwidth solution with the most flexible uplink architecture. The Catalyst 9300 Series is the first optimized platform for high-density Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ac Wave2. It sets new maximums for network scale. These switches are also ready for the future, with an x86 CPU architecture and more memory, enabling them to host containers and run third-party applications and scripts natively within the switch.

The Catalyst 9300 Series is designed for Cisco StackWise® technology, providing flexible deployment with support for nonstop forwarding with Stateful Switchover (NSF/SSO), for the most resilient architecture in a stackable (sub-50-ms) solution. The highly resilient and efficient power architecture features Cisco StackPower®, which delivers high-density Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), 60W Cisco Universal Power over Ethernet (Cisco UPOE) and 90W Cisco UPOE®+ ports. The switches are based on the Cisco Unified Access Data Plane 2.0 (UADP) architecture which not only protects your investment but also allows a larger scale and higher throughput. Catalyst 9300X models are based on a new ASIC, UADP 2.5sec, which adds Crypto support in hardware, including IPSEC. A modern operating system, Cisco IOS® XE with programmability offers advanced security capabilities and Internet of Things (IoT) convergence.

The Foundation of Software-Defined access

Advanced persistent security threats. The exponential growth of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Mobility everywhere. Cloud adoption. All of these require a network fabric that integrates advanced hardware and software innovations to automate, secure, and simplify customer networks. The goal of this network fabric is to enable customer revenue growth by accelerating the rollout of business services.

The Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) with Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) is the network fabric that powers business. It is an open and extensible, software-driven architecture that accelerates and simplifies your enterprise network operations. The programmable architecture frees your IT staff from time-consuming, repetitive network configuration tasks so they can focus instead on innovation that positively transforms your business. SD-Access enables policy-based automation from edge to cloud with foundational capabilities. These include:

      Simplified device deployment

      Unified management of wired and wireless networks

      Network virtualization and segmentation

      Group-based policies

      Context-based analytics

Power supplies

Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series switches support dual redundant power supplies. The switches ship with one power supply by default, and the second power supply can be purchased when the switch is ordered or at a later time. If only one power supply is installed, it should always be in power supply bay #1. The switches also ship with three field-replaceable fans.

SD-Access architecture

What if you could give time back to IT? Provide network access in minutes for any user or device to any application – without compromise? SD-Access is the industry’s first policy-based automation from network edge to cloud. Your foundation for your digital network, Cisco SD-Access. Built on the principles of the Cisco DNA, SD-Access provides end-to-end segmentation to keep user, device and application traffic separate without a redesign of the network. It automates user access policy so organizations can make sure the right policies are set for any user or device with any application across the network. This is accomplished with a single network fabric across LAN and WLAN which creates a consistent user experience anywhere without compromising on security.

There are many challenges today in managing the network to drive business outcomes. These limitations are due to manual configuration and fragmented tool offerings. SD-Access provides:

      A transformational management solution that reduces operational expenses and enhances business agility

      Consistent management of wired and wireless network provisioning and policy

      Automated network segmentation and group-based policy

      Contextual insights for fast issue resolution and capacity planning

      Open and programmable interfaces for integration with third-party solutions

For an overview of key use-cases SD-Access addresses, refer to SD-Access Solution Overview.

Platform benefits

Cisco IOS XE opens a completely new paradigm in network configuration, operation, and monitoring through network automation. Cisco’s automation solution is open, standards-based, and extensible across the entire lifecycle of a network device. The various automation mechanisms are outlined below.

      Automated device provisioning is the ability to automate the process of upgrading software images and installing configuration files on Cisco Catalyst switches when they are being deployed in the network for the first time. Cisco provides both turnkey solutions such as Plug and Play and off-the-shelf tools such as Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) and Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) that enable an effortless and automated deployment.

      API-driven configuration is available with modern network switches such as the Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series. It supports a wide range of automation features and provides robust open APIs over NETCONF and RESTCONF and GNMI using YANG data models for external tools, both off-the-shelf and custom built, to automatically provision network resources.

      Granular visibility enables model-driven telemetry to stream data from a switch to a destination. The data to be streamed is identified through subscription to a data set in a YANG model. The subscribed data set is streamed to the destination at specified intervals. Additionally, Cisco IOS XE enables the push model. It provides near-real-time monitoring of the network, leading to quick detection and rectification of failures.

      Seamless software upgrades and patching supports OS resilience. Cisco IOS XE supports patching, which provides fixes for critical bugs and security vulnerabilities between regular maintenance releases. This support lets you add patches without having to wait for the next maintenance release.

Security

      Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA) is a unique capability for identifying malware in encrypted traffic coming from the access layer. Since more and more traffic is becoming encrypted, the visibility this feature affords for threat detection is critical for keeping your network secure at different layers.

      AES-256 MACsec encryption is the IEEE 802.1AE standard for authenticating and encrypting packets between switches. The Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series switches support 256-bit and 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), providing the most secure link encryption.

      IPSec encryption delivers secure end-to-end encrypted traffic between sites and connectivity to the Cloud. C9300X models support line rate IPSEC up to 100 Gbps delivering uncompromised secure connectivity.

      Trustworthy solutions built with Cisco Trust Anchor Technologies provide a highly secure foundation for Cisco products. With the Catalyst 9300 Series, these technologies enable hardware and software authenticity assurance for supply chain trust and strong mitigation against man-in-the-middle attacks that compromise software and firmware. Trust Anchor capabilities include:

    Image signing: Cryptographically signed images provide assurance that the firmware, BIOS, and other software are authentic and unmodified. As the system boots, the system’s software signatures are checked for integrity.

    Secure Boot: Cisco Secure Boot technology anchors the boot sequence chain of trust to immutable hardware, mitigating threats against a system’s foundational state and the software that is to be loaded, regardless of a user’s privilege level. It provides layered protection against the persistence of illicitly modified firmware.

    Cisco Trust Anchor module: A tamper-resistant, strong cryptographic, single-chip solution provides hardware authenticity assurance to uniquely identify the product so that its origin can be confirmed to Cisco. This provides assurance that the product is genuine.

Cloud Security

      Umbrella DNS Integration:

Small to midsize networks reliant on managed service providers can now host Cisco Umbrella agent directly on their Catalyst 9300 series switches. This allows the business to easily customize their DNS filtering policies granularly at user or group level to prevent BYOD or IoT guest or corporate users from accessing malicious or inappropriate websites, without having to rely on the MSP to push the policies out. It also lets them optimize use of bandwidth by allowing direct cloud access for trusted apps. Requires DNA-Advantage License and Umbrella License per device.

Service Assurance

      Cisco ThousandEyes Integration:

Deliver superior network and service experience for your users, employees and partners with groundbreaking observability from network to app. Cisco ThousandEyes network tests are now integrated into Cisco Catalyst 9300 series switches with Cisco DNA Advantage and Premier licenses, giving you visibility beyond your campus perimeter so you solve issues faster. The Cisco ThousandEyes Network and Application Synthetics license is included by default upon the selection of a Cisco DNA Advantage or Cisco DNA Premier option with a 3 year, 5 year or a 7 year subscription. Each Catalyst 9300 Cisco DNA Advantage or Premier subscription entitles the customer to run the equivalent of one Cisco ThousandEyes network or web test every 5 mins from a Cisco ThousandEyes enterprise agent (22 units per month), up to a maximum of 110,000 units per month of Cisco ThousandEyes test capacity per customer.

      Perpetual PoE: With Perpetual PoE, the PoE power is maintained during a switch reload. This is important for IoT endpoints such as PoE-powered lights, so that there is no disruption during switch reboot.

      Fast PoE: When power is restored to a switch, PoE starts delivering power to endpoints without waiting for the operating system to fully load, thereby speeding up the time for the endpoint to start up.

* C9300-48UN, C9300-24UX, C9300-48UXM are available with PWR-C1-1100WAC-P Platinum-rated power supply. Platinum-rated power supplies are more efficient, lowering operating power costs
* PWR-C1-1100WAC-UP and PWR-C1-715WAC-UP Platinum-rated power supply upgrade options are available to upgrade the default AC power supply to 1100W or 715W

Software requirements

Cisco DNA Software for Access Switching is available for the Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series.

For ordering information for Cisco DNA Software for the Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series, go to https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/software/one-access/switching-part-numbers.html.

Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series switches run on Cisco IOS XE 16.5.1a release or later with the following exceptions. Catalyst 9300 Series 1G fiber models (C9300-xxS SKUs) are supported on Cisco IOS XE 16.11.1a release or later. Catalyst 9300 Series fixed uplink models (C9300L SKUs) are supported on Cisco IOS XE 16.11.1b release or later. These software releases includes all the features listed earlier in the Platform Benefits section.

Licensing

Packaging

The Cisco Catalyst 9000 family of switches introduces a new and simplified licensing package in the form of base and add-on licenses.

      The perpetual licensing package includes the Network Essentials and Network Advantage licensing options that are tied to the hardware. Between them, the base licensing packages cover switching fundamentals, management automation, troubleshooting, and advanced switching features. These Network licenses are perpetual.

The subscription licensing package includes the Cisco DNA Essentials and Cisco DNA Advantage options. In addition to on-box capabilities, the features available with this package provide Cisco innovations on the switch, as well as on Cisco DNA Center. The Cisco DNA subscription licenses are mandatory at the time of configuration. With Cisco DNA software licenses, customers receive embedded SWSS – which covers 24x7x365 Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support, software release updates, advanced support analytics, and designated service management. This is valid only for the Cisco DNA software subscription stacks (Cisco DNA Essentials, Advantage, and Premier).

Note: For full hardware support, including the perpetual network stack, customers will require Smart Net Total Care for 24x7x365 Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support, proactive security and product alerts, and product lifecycle management. An additional option for hardware support is Solution Support for your multivendor Cisco solution environment.

License consumption is easily determined by the package itself. While perpetual licenses are always permanent and without an expiration date, subscription licenses have to be purchased for a 3-, 5-, or 7-year term (and hence are also known as term-based licenses). Table 13 shows the combinations of perpetual and subscription licenses that must be purchased.

*At the time of Cisco DNA license renewal, the Cisco DNA Essentials license can be purchased to be used with Network Advantage
** Network Advantage is inclusive of Network Essentials features.

Managing licenses with Smart Accounts: Creating Smart Accounts by using the Cisco Smart Software Manager (SSM) enables you to manage your software licenses from a centralized website. You can set up Cisco SSM to receive daily email alerts and to be notified of expiring subscription licenses that you want to renew.

You must order a Cisco DNA subscription term license in order to purchase a switch. When the license term expires, you can either renew the add-on license to continue using it or deactivate the add-on license and then reload the switch to continue operating with the base license capabilities.

Both the base and add-on licenses are also available for a 90-day evaluation period. An evaluation license is activated temporarily, without purchase. An expired evaluation license cannot be reactivated after reload.

Note:     It is not required to deploy Cisco DNA Center just to use one of the above packages.

Introduction to Smart Licensing

Cisco Smart Licensing is a flexible licensing model that provides you with an easier, faster, and more consistent way to purchase and manage software across the Cisco portfolio and across your organization. And it’s secure – you control what users can access. With Smart Licensing you get:

      Easy Activation: Smart Licensing establishes a pool of software licenses that can be used across the entire organization—no more PAKs (Product Activation Keys).

      Unified Management: My Cisco Entitlements (MCE) provides a complete view into all of your Cisco products and services in an easy-to-use portal, so you always know what you have and what you are using.

      License Flexibility: Your software is not node-locked to your hardware, so you can easily use and transfer licenses as needed.

To use Smart Licensing, you must first set up a Smart Account on Cisco Software Central (software.cisco.com).

For a more detailed overview on Cisco Licensing, go to cisco.com/go/licensingguide.
