Cisco Catalyst 9000 Family Switches

Switching for a new era in intent-based networking.

The foundation for intent-based networking

We designed the Cisco Catalyst 9000 LAN switches to support intent-based networking. This is about building a network that recognizes your intentions. It’s a network that learns, adapts, and protects your investment by getting more efficient and more secure over time.

Integrated security

Get a network that learns and adapts to new threats, protecting itself through segmentation and encryption.

Support for IoT and mobility

Gain automated provisioning and configuration for easier device management.

Cloud ready

Simplify, secure, and transform your cloud environment. The equipped DevOps toolkit lets you customize provisioning, automation, and monitoring.

A closer look at the Catalyst 9000 family

Cisco Catalyst 9000 fixed and modular, core and access LAN switches have been designed for an entirely new era of networking. Now your network can learn, adapt, and evolve.

These switches are a critical part of an integrated security architecture--one that works before, during, and after a threat occurs, to reduce attack surface, detect malware and threats, and rapidly contain those threats.

An intuitive network recognizes intent, mitigates threats through segmentation and encryption, and learns over time. Unlock opportunities, enhance security, improve business agility, and increase operational efficiencies.

Get unmatched scale for perpetual Cisco UPOE/PoE+/PoE with our Catalyst 9000 switches. They are flexible in scale and port speed, from 1 Gigabit Ethernet to multigigabit (1, 2.5, 5, 10 Gbps), 25 GE, 40 GE, and 100 GE.
