Product Overview of Cisco Ethernet Switch

The MS42P-HW is a high-performance, high-density switch from Cisco, designed for use in enterprise networks. This switch is an unclaimed switch, which means it is not yet configured or connected to a network.

The switch has 48 ports, which include 48 RJ-45 ports for Ethernet connectivity and 2 SFP+ ports for 10GB connectivity. The RJ-45 ports support 1 Gbps data rates, and the SFP+ ports support 10 Gbps data rates, providing high-speed connectivity for devices such as servers, storage systems, and other network devices. The switch also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), which allows power to be delivered to devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras over the Ethernet cables, eliminating the need for additional power outlets.

This switch is ideal for businesses looking to expand their network with high-speed, power-efficient connectivity for a variety of devices. The switch also supports advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), VLANs, and Link Aggregation, making it a versatile solution for enterprise networks.

Purpose of a Network Switch

A network switch functions as a central hub for connecting multiple devices within a local area network (LAN). It efficiently manages data traffic, directing information between devices for seamless communication and data transfer.

Understanding the Technical SpecificationsCloud Managed
  • Cloud Management: The MS42-HW MS42 switch is cloud-managed, meaning it can be remotely monitored, configured, and controlled through cloud-based management interfaces. This facilitates easier network management and troubleshooting.
Gigabit Ethernet (GbE)
  • Gigabit Ethernet: The switch supports Gigabit Ethernet, offering high-speed data transfer capabilities of up to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) per port. This is crucial for handling data-intensive applications and ensuring fast communication between devices.
Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+)
  • SFP+ Ports: The presence of SFP+ ports indicates the switch's compatibility with Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus transceivers, enabling high-speed connectivity for various networking needs.
48 Ports
  • Port Count: The switch features a total of 48 ports, providing ample connectivity options for numerous devices such as computers, printers, and other networked equipment.
Importance of Gigabit Ethernet and SFP+ Ports in NetworkingHigh-Speed Data Transfer
  • Gigabit Ethernet ensures rapid data transfer, critical for applications demanding quick response times and large data file transfers.
Flexibility and Compatibility
  • SFP+ ports offer flexibility by supporting various types of SFP+ transceivers, allowing for compatibility with different networking technologies and distances.
  • The combination of Gigabit Ethernet and SFP+ ports supports scalability, enabling the network to expand and adapt to growing demands.
Application in Network InfrastructureCloud-Based Network Management
  • The cloud-managed feature simplifies network administration by allowing remote configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting. This is particularly beneficial for distributed or large-scale networks.
Versatile Connectivity
  • With 48 ports, the MS42-HW MS42 switch is suitable for various network setups, providing connectivity for a multitude of devices within an organization.
Benefits of Cisco MS42-HW MS42 SwitchRemote Management
  • Cloud management enhances efficiency by allowing administrators to oversee and manage the network remotely, reducing the need for physical access to the switch.
High-Performance Connectivity
  • Gigabit Ethernet and SFP+ ports ensure high-performance connectivity, meeting the demands of modern applications and data-intensive tasks.
Scalability and Flexibility
  • The switch supports scalability, accommodates the expansion of the network, and offers flexibility through its SFP+ ports for various networking configurations.
Power Options and Redundancy

The MS42P-HW Cisco 1GB PoE RJ-45 10GB SFP+ 48 Ports Unclaimed Switch has several power options and redundancy features that ensure that it can operate reliably in different environments.

Power options:

  • It supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) which allows the switch to power devices such as IP phones and wireless access points through the Ethernet cable, this eliminates the need for separate power cables and outlets.
  • It also has an option for an external power supply, which can be used as a backup in case of a power failure.


  • The switch has dual power supplies that provide redundancy and ensure that there is no disruption in the event of a power failure.
  • The switch also supports stackable architecture, which allows multiple switches to be connected and function as a single unit. This provides redundancy and increased availability in case of failure of one of the switches.
  • It also supports redundancy in the form of physical stacking, which allows multiple switches to be physically connected and function as a single unit.
Quality of Service

The MS42P-HW Cisco 1GB PoE RJ-45 10GB SFP+ 48 Ports Unclaimed Switch supports Quality of Service (QoS) features that allow for the prioritization of different types of traffic. QoS is important for ensuring that critical applications and services receive the necessary bandwidth and low latency, even during periods of high network utilization.

Some of the QoS features supported by the MS42P-HW switch include:

  • Traffic shaping and rate limiting: This allows for the control of the amount of bandwidth that can be used by different types of traffic, ensuring that critical applications receive the necessary bandwidth.
  • Class of Service (CoS): This feature allows for the prioritization of different types of traffic based on the Layer 2 CoS or Layer 3 ToS/DSCP fields.
  • Priority Queuing: This feature allows for the prioritization of traffic based on the 802.1p priority field.
  • Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP): LACP allows multiple physical connections to be grouped to form a single logical link, providing redundancy and increased bandwidth.
