If you have networking experience, you can use this switch to extend an existing network, bringing wired connectivity to more employees and supporting new wireless deployments.
LAN Base IOS software : The switch's software includes a rich Layer 2+ suite of intelligent services, including:
Advanced quality of service (QoS)
Granular rate limiting
Access control lists (ACLs)
Power over Ethernet (PoE) : You can use the switch to provide electrical power over Ethernet cables to PoE-enabled devices, reducing costs for electrical cabling and circuits.
Multiple management options : You can manage the switch with either the embedded GUI device manager or the Windows-based Cisco Network Assistant (available at no cost from the Cisco website).
Security : The switch offers a range of authentication methods, data encryption technologies, and Network Admission Control (NAC) based on users, ports, and MAC addresses. Cisco TrustSec prevents unauthorized access and helps ensure that users get only their designated privileges.
Energy-saving tools : Cisco's EnergyWise technology allows you to measure and manage the power consumption of network devices for additional cost and resource savings.
Cisco FlexStacking support : You can use Cisco FlexStacking to manage multiple physical switches as a single unit. Cisco FlexStacking requires the Cisco 2960-X Series FlexStack-Plus Stacking Module and Cable.
