Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series Switches

Converge wired and wireless​​

The Catalyst 9400 is the next generation of the industry’s most widely deployed enterprise switching platform. These modular access switches are built for security, Internet of Things (IoT), and the cloud. They deliver state-of-the-art high availability, support up to 8 Tbps, and form one of the building blocks for SD-Access, Cisco’s leading enterprise architecture.

Features and benefits

Defense across the attack continuum

Advanced capabilities of ​Catalyst 9400 switches help protect your organization before, during, and after an attack. Reduce your attack surface with Cisco trustworthy systems and MACSEC256 encryption. Enhance malware detection and rapid threat containment.

IoT readiness

This series delivers IoT convergence with industry-leading scale. You get up to 384 ports of 100W perpetual Cisco UPOE, PoE+, and PoE; trustworthy security; support for audio-visual bridging (AVB) and the IEEE 1588 standard; service discovery; and IoT classification.

Cloud readiness

Simplify, secure, and transform your cloud environment. Cisco delivers a digital-ready approach that starts at the network edge and extends to where applications reside.

Foundational technology

These access switches support high-availability patching, graceful insertion and removal (GIR), and NSF/SSO, as well as redundant, platinum-rated power supplies and fans. They also support advanced routing and infrastructure services.
