Introduction to the Ethernet Switch
The SLM2016T Cisco Small Business Smart SG200-18 Ports Switch is a cost-effective and reliable networking solution designed for small businesses. This switch is part of the Cisco Small Business Smart Switch series, which is designed to provide advanced network features and performance while being easy to use and manage.
The SLM2016T offers 18 Gigabit Ethernet ports, which allow for high-speed connectivity of devices such as computers, servers, and printers. It also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) on all ports, allowing devices such as wireless access points and IP phones to be powered over the network.
The switch includes a web-based management interface, which allows for easy configuration and monitoring of the device from any location. It also supports the Cisco FindIT Network Discovery application, which allows for automatic discovery and monitoring of devices on the network.
The switch also includes advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS) for prioritizing different types of traffic, and Link Aggregation for increased bandwidth and redundancy. It also supports VLANs for segmenting the network, and Access Control Lists (ACLs) for filtering traffic based on specific criteria.
The SLM2016T is also Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) compliant, which helps to reduce power consumption and lower operating costs. Additionally, the switch is backed by a limited lifetime warranty and 24/7 technical support, providing peace of mind and ensuring that support is available when it is needed.
Network Management and Security Features
The SLM2016T Cisco Small Business Smart SG200-18 Port Switch provides the following network management and security features:
- Web-based management: The switch features a web-based graphical user interface that allows administrators to easily configure, monitor, and manage the network from a web browser.
- Quality of Service (QoS): The switch supports QoS, allowing administrators to prioritize network traffic based on specific needs, such as voice and video.
- Port-based security: The switch provides port-based security features such as port security, which restricts access to the network based on MAC addresses.
- VLANs: The switch supports Virtual LANs (VLANs), which allows administrators to segment the network into separate broadcast domains, improving network security and reducing network congestion.
- Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP): The switch supports LACP, which enables administrators to bundle multiple physical links together to form a single logical link, providing increased bandwidth and network reliability.
- Spanning Tree Protocol (STP): The switch supports STP, which helps prevent network loops by creating a loop-free topology in the network.
- Firmware upgrade: The switch allows for firmware upgrades, allowing administrators to easily update the switch's software to the latest version for improved performance and security.
Power Options and Redundancy
The SLM2016T Cisco Small Business Smart SG200-18 Ports Switch offers several options for power and redundancy to ensure that the network remains up and running even in case of power failure.
Power over Ethernet (PoE): The switch supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) on all ports, which allows for powering devices such as wireless access points and IP phones over the network. This eliminates the need for additional power supplies, making it more convenient and cost-effective to deploy and manage devices.
Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az): The switch is Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) compliant, which helps to reduce power consumption and lower operating costs.
Power Redundancy: The switch does not support power redundancy feature.
Link Aggregation: The switch supports Link Aggregation which allows for increased bandwidth and redundancy by bundling multiple physical links together. This allows administrators to add more bandwidth and increase the availability of the network.
Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) : The switch supports RSTP which allows for fast convergence and recovery in case of a link failure. This improves the resiliency of the network and reduces downtime.

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 configurations 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 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.
