Introduction to the 24 Ports Switch
The Cisco Business 250 24 Ports Smart Switch (model number CBS250-24T-4X) is a managed Ethernet switch designed for small to medium-sized businesses. It is a powerful and flexible solution for businesses looking to upgrade their network infrastructure with advanced features.
The CBS250-24T-4X offers 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports which provide high-speed data transfer for connecting various devices such as computers, servers, and other network devices. Four of the ports are SFP ports, which allow for fiber connectivity and provide the option for longer distance and higher bandwidth connections.
The switch also includes advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS) which allows for prioritization of network traffic, VLANs which provide segmentation of network traffic, and security options such as DHCP snooping and IP-MAC binding to prevent unauthorized access to the network.
The switch also has a web-based management interface, which allows for easy configuration and monitoring of the switch's settings and status. This makes it easy for network administrators to manage and troubleshoot the switch remotely.
Features and Benefits
The Cisco Business 250 24 Ports Smart Switch (model number CBS250-24T-4X) offers a variety of features and benefits to help small to medium-sized businesses improve their network infrastructure. Some of these features and benefits include:
- 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports: The switch has 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports which provide high-speed data transfer for connecting various devices such as computers, servers, and other network devices.
- 4 SFP ports: Four of the ports on the switch are SFP ports, which allow for fiber connectivity and provide the option for longer distance and higher bandwidth connections.
- Quality of Service (QoS): The switch includes advanced Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities, which allow for prioritization of network traffic. This helps ensure that important traffic, such as voice and video, is given priority over less important traffic.
- VLANs: The switch supports VLANs, which provide segmentation of network traffic. This helps improve network security and performance by isolating different types of traffic on different VLANs.
- Security features: The switch includes security features such as DHCP snooping and IP-MAC binding to prevent unauthorized access to the network.
- Web-based management interface: The switch has a web-based management interface, which allows for easy configuration and monitoring of the switch's settings and status.
- Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE): The switch support Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which helps reduce energy consumption and lower operating costs.
- Easy to use: The switch is easy to use and deploy, which minimizes the need for dedicated IT staff.
- Affordable: The switch is an affordable option for small to medium-sized businesses looking for a high-performance switch with advanced features to support their network infrastructure.
Security and Management
The Cisco Business 250 24 Ports Smart Switch (model number CBS250-24T-4X) includes several security and management features to help small to medium-sized businesses protect their network infrastructure.
- DHCP snooping: This feature helps prevent DHCP spoofing attacks by only allowing DHCP messages from authorized DHCP servers to be processed by the switch.
- IP-MAC binding: This feature binds a specific IP address to a specific MAC address, preventing unauthorized devices from accessing the network.
- Secure Shell (SSH) and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)v3: These protocols provide secure remote management and monitoring of the switch, helping to prevent unauthorized access to the switch's configuration.
- Web-based management interface: This feature allows network administrators to easily configure and manage the switch remotely, using a web browser.
- Quality of Service (QoS): This feature allows network administrators to prioritize network traffic, ensuring that important traffic, such as voice and video, is given priority over less important traffic.
- VLANs: This feature allows for segmentation of network traffic, improving network security and performance by isolating different types of traffic on different VLANs.
- Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE): This feature helps reduce energy consumption and lower operating costs by automatically reducing power consumption when the switch is not in use.
- SNMP: This feature allows for monitoring of the switch's status and performance, providing network administrators with real-time visibility into the switch's operation.

Different Types of Switches
Networking switches vary widely depending on the number of devices they can support, network bandwidth/speed, and form factor. Switches for small offices will have anything between 4 and 8 ports and can fit on a desk. For larger office network implementation, switches may have 24 ports, 48 ports, 96 ports, and 128 ports and are rack-mountable between 1U and 4U. Switches come in different types depending on the network speed and tasks they support. These include 40/100 Gbps, 10 Gigabit (up to 10000 Mbps), Gigabit Ethernet (up to 1000 Mbps), Power over Ethernet, and Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps).
The unmanaged switches offer fixed configuration on a plug-and-play basis. It is the most basic switch and there are a few choices in the market. These switches are affordable, but the basic features make them inappropriate for enterprise applications.
The number of features and level of functionality improves with managed switches, making them ideal for enterprise and business applications. These switches are built with the command-line interface for ease of configuration. Equally, they support SNMP agents that come in handy when troubleshooting network issues.
The security on managed switches is better and will protect different types of traffic. Other features include support for virtual LANs, IP routing, and quality of service settings. Managed switches are more expensive compared to all other types of switches.
Smart switches refer to switches that possess more features than those of unmanaged switches but do not have the full features of managed switches. Smart switches are more cost-effective than managed switches.
Some of the limitations of the smart switches are a lack of telnet access support, Web GUIs, and a lack of many features for VLANs. They are affordable compared to a fully managed switch and are suitable for a smaller computer network.
Modular switches allow the addition of expansion modules as the network expands. The expansion modules allow for more networked devices but are application-specific. They may include wireless access points, firewalls, or network analysis tools. The flexibility of a modular networking switch comes at a higher cost.
