Your network is more secure.

Deploy consistent security policy across all devices connecting to your network—both wired and wireless. Your wireless infrastructure can now become the strongest line of defense in identifying malware in encrypted traffic coming from the access layer.

41% of attacks used encrypted traffic to evade detection.

Protect against attackers—even if the attack is in encrypted traffic—with Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA), now supported on both wired and wireless through Cisco IOS Flexible Netflow. Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) provides policy-based segmentation so that users, applications and things are secure.

Cisco Catalyst 9100 Series Access Points

The Cisco Catalyst 9100 Series Access Points provide Wi-Fi 6 support and superior RF innovations, and are ready for the evolution of user expectations, the increase in IoT device attachments, and next generation cloud-driven applications.

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches extend the power of intent-based networking and Catalyst 9000 hardware and software innovation to branch and mid-sized deployments. Highly secure and always on, the Catalyst 9200 Series delivers simplicity without compromise.

Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series Switches

The Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series is the next generation of the industry's most widely deployed stackable switching platform. Catalyst 9300 Series access switches give you smart, simple, and highly secure unified access, including embedded wireless controller capabilities. They are also ready for IoT with 60W perpetual Cisco UPOE, PoE+, and PoE; trustworthy solutions; support for audio-visual bridging (AVB) and the IEEE 1588 standard; service discovery; and IoT classification. Built for security, IoT, and the cloud, these network switches form the foundation for Cisco's Software-Defined Access, our leading enterprise architecture.

Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series Switches

The Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series is the next generation of the industry's most widely deployed enterprise switching platform. These modular access and distribution switches are built for security, Internet of Things (IoT), and the cloud. The Catalyst 9400 Series is ready for IoT with 100W perpetual Cisco UPOE, PoE+, and PoE; trustworthy solutions; support for audio-visual bridging (AVB) and the IEEE 1588 standard; service discovery; and IoT classification. They include state-of-the-art high availability and support up to 9 Tbps—a building block for SD-Access, Cisco's leading enterprise architecture.

Cisco Catalyst 9500 Series Switches

The Cisco Catalyst 9500 Series is the first fixed 100/40/25G Gbps switch purpose-built for the enterprise campus. These high-density 1RU core switches support StackWise Virtual, hot patching, graceful insertion and removal (GIR), NSF/SSO, and redundant, platinum-rated power supplies and fans. They also support advanced routing and infrastructure services. Designed for security, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the cloud, Catalyst 9500 Series fixed-core switches are high-density building blocks for a next-generation, intent-based network.

Cisco Catalyst 9600 Series Switches

The Cisco Catalyst 9600 Series is the first modular 100/40/25G Gbps switch purpose-built for the enterprise campus. Catalyst 9600 Series switches are raising the bar on the campus core to power the cloud-scale campus—any deployment, any speed. Designed for security, high availability, programmability, and flexibility, Catalyst 9600 Series modular-core switches support up to 25.6 Tbps and are high-density building blocks for a next-generation, multi-domain, intent-based network.

Cisco Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers

The Cisco Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers are the most secure, resilient, programmable controllers that can be deployed anywhere—on premises, in any cloud, or embedded on a Catalyst switch. They are compatible with the current 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard and are 802.11ax-ready.

Always on. Secure. Flexible. On both wired and wireless.
