Deployment and Management


  • Unpack the WS-C2960C-8TC-S Cisco Catalyst switch and ensure that all components are present and in good condition.
  • Connect the switch to a power source and turn it on.
  • Connect the switch to a computer or laptop using a console cable.
  • Launch a terminal program such as PuTTY and configure the connection settings to match the switch's default settings (e.g. 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit).
  • Press Enter to access the switch's command-line interface (CLI).
  • Configure the switch's basic settings, such as the hostname, IP address, and default gateway.


  • Connect to the switch using the CLI or a web-based interface.
  • Configure VLANs and assign ports to specific VLANs as needed.
  • Configure port security settings to control access to the network.
  • Set up Quality of Service (QoS) policies to prioritize different types of traffic.
  • Monitor the switch's performance and troubleshoot any issues that may arise.
  • Schedule regular firmware upgrades to ensure that the switch is running the latest software version.
  • Back up the switch's configuration regularly to prevent data loss in case of a failure.
  • Use security features such as access control lists (ACLs) and port security to protect the network from unauthorized access.
  • Monitor and analyze network traffic to identify and resolve any performance issues.
  • Use tools such as Cisco Prime or SolarWinds to manage and monitor multiple switches from a central location.

Security and Access Control

The WS-C2960C-8TC-S Cisco Catalyst Managed 8 Ports Switch provides several security and access control features to protect against unauthorized access and network attacks. These include:

  • Access Control Lists (ACLs): ACLs are used to filter traffic and restrict access to the network based on specific criteria such as IP address, port number, and protocol type. This allows administrators to control who can access the network and what resources they can access.
  • Port Security: Port security allows administrators to restrict access to specific ports on the switch. This can be used to prevent unauthorized devices from connecting to the network or to limit the number of devices that can be connected to a specific port.
  • VLANs: Virtual LANs (VLANs) are used to segment a network into smaller, isolated segments. This can be used to create separate networks for different departments or groups within an organization.
  • IEEE 802.1x: IEEE 802.1x is an authentication protocol that is used to control access to a network. It requires users to provide valid credentials before they can access the network.
  • SSH and Telnet: SSH and Telnet are used to remotely access and manage the switch. SSH provides a secure, encrypted connection while Telnet provides an unencrypted connection.
  • Secure Boot: The switch supports secure boot, which ensures that only authorized firmware images can be loaded on the switch. This prevents unauthorized firmware from being loaded, which could potentially compromise the security of the switch.
  • SNMPv3: SNMPv3 is used to monitor and manage the switch remotely. It provides secure authentication and encryption for remote management.
  • Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) Guard: CDP guard is used to prevent unauthorized devices from connecting to the switch by disabling CDP on a specific port.
