Cisco Industrial Ethernet 5000 Series Switches

Get scalable aggregation for industrial environments

Get a flexible, highly reliable, and scalable industrial Ethernet platform built to withstand extreme industrial environments. The Industrial Ethernet (IE) 5000 Series delivers highly secure aggregation and industry-leading convergence and resiliency. These switches can improve uptime, performance, and safety of industrial systems and equipment.

Boost speeds, reduce downtime

Easily scale your network to handle high-bandwidth applications. (2:16 min)


  • Reduced downtime
    High-availability technology facilitates networkwide resilience to increase IP network availability. This results in continuous access to applications, data, and content as organizations dramatically scale network size.
  • Lower operating expenditure costs
    Zero-touch deployment and very simplified operations can enable switches to auto-discover and auto-configure new devices.
  • Improved security
    Integrating cybersecurity throughout the network delivers extensive visibility and control. It also allows security policies to be enforced throughout the extended network, without creating traffic bottlenecks.
  • Investment protection
    Software licensing offers new, improved software features without hardware upgrades.

Features and capabilities

The IE 5000 Series is built to withstand extreme environments while adhering to overall IT network design, compliance, and performance requirements. These switches are ideal for industrial Ethernet applications where hardened, highly scalable products are required, such as:

  • Factory automation
  • Power utility substations
  • Intelligent transportation systems
  • Oil and gas field sites
  • Connected cities
  • Mining

With improved performance, a more comprehensive feature set, and enhanced hardware, the IE 5000 Series offers superior bandwidth and capacity. Options include:

  • 24-Gbps Ethernet (1 GE) ports (12 x 100/1000-Mbps SFP and 12 x 10/100/1000-Mbps PoE and PoE+ RJ-45-based), plus 4 x 10-Gbps (10 GE) ports (SFP+)
  • 24 Gbps Ethernet (1 GE) ports (12 x 100/1000-Mbps SFP and 12 x 10/100/1000-Mbps PoE and PoE+ RJ-45-based), plus 4 1-Gbps (1 GE) ports (SFP)

Other Features

  • Extended Enterprise capability with Cisco DNA Center management and support for the Software-Defined Access Extension for IoT
  • High-density industrial PoE or PoE+ support for in-line power for up to 12 power devices
  • Robust resiliency and enhanced security
  • Cisco IOS Software features for smooth IT integration and policy consistency
  • Simplified, pay-as-you-go software upgrades with universal software images​

The IE 5000 can be easily managed by Cisco Industrial Network Director, a network management system purpose built for industrial applications that uses the complete capabilities of the Cisco industrial Ethernet product family to make the network easily accessible to non-IT operations personnel.​
