Help your business achieve its fullest potential by putting a strong internal network in place. Formerly a part of the Linksys Business Series, the Cisco SRW2008MP 8-Port Gigabit Switch is the heart of your digital environment. You can connect up to eight separate devices to the switch's gigabit ports. But there's more to the SRW2008MP than speed: It also helps maximize your Power over Ethernet capabilities by supplying each of eight attached devices with 15.4W of power.
Security is a priority, as the SRW2008MP authenticates with every attached device before sending out information and allows access to be set on multiple levels. The SRW2008MP also prioritizes the data passing along your network with a variety of traffic-shaping mechanisms to help ensure high performance and clarity for bandwidth-intensive communications like video teleconferencing.
Additional features of the Cisco SRW2008MP 8-Port Gigabit Switch include:
- Non-blocking switching capacity of up to 16 Gbps
- Up to 256 active port- and 802.1Q-based VLANs (4096 range)
- A built-in Web interface for easy, browser-based customization
- Full management through the WebView browser interface or console port
The Cisco® SRW2008MP 8-Port Gigabit Switch (Figure 1) is fully managed and brings Gigabit speeds to your users while adding a whole new level of intelligence and security to your network. The eight 10/100/1000 Mbps ports enable you to take advantage of the Gigabit Ethernet interfaces shipping on the current generation of servers, workstations, and storage devices, in addition to supporting existing 10/100 Mbps clients. The optional mini Gigabit Interface Converter (mini-GBIC) ports allow you to expand the network as your business grows.
The Cisco SRW2008MP supports the IEEE 802.3af standard for Power over Ethernet (PoE). For applications where four or fewer PoE devices are being connected, the Cisco SRW2008MP is the ideal solution. It supports all eight ports at 15.4W per port. All ports have automatic load sensing circuitry that automatically detects PoE on the end device before providing power. The ports also feature independent overload and short-circuit protection, along with LED indicators for power status.
As more business functions and processes migrate to the network, having an intelligent network becomes a necessity. The Cisco SRW2008MP is able to secure the network through IEEE 802.1Q VLANs, IEEE 802.1X port authentication, access control lists (ACLs), and MAC-based filtering. At the same time, the enhanced quality of service (QoS) and traffic management features ensure clear and reliable voice and video communications.
Having this additional capability is not useful if it cannot be implemented. WebView provides an intuitive, secure management interface, enabling you to better utilize the comprehensive feature set of the Cisco SRW2008MP, resulting in a better-optimized, more secure network.
