With cloud, virtualization, Internet of Things, 11ac and Wifi 6, businesses need a powerful network to support growing devices, applications, and growing traffic. Ten Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) may sound like an overkill to Small and Medium Business (SMB) a few years ago, but has become increasingly a necessity today.
The Cisco Small Business team develops SME-tailored network technologies. In 2014 we have our 1st 10GE switch for the SMB market. In 2016, we expanded our 10GE switch line to 8 models. And now we take our 10GE offering to the next level.
Cisco SX350X and SX550X 10GE switches
The new offer includes 11 models – 5 in 350X series and 6 in 550X Series. The port density ranges from only 8 10GE ports to 52 ports. There is also a wide selection of 10GE copper, 10GE fiber optic or mixed configuration models for a variety of applications. Most importantly, these switches are now cheaper – ideal for SMEs to upgrade their network with limited investment.
The switches also feature a number of exciting features, including:
- 4 x combined 10GE uplinks for maximum flexibility
- Larger packet buffer for processing bursts in traffic
- Trusted systems, including secure boot and runtime defense for more security
- Stackable with existing SG550XG and SG350XG 10G switches for investment protection
