Introduction to the 24 Ports Switch
Cisco Catalyst switches are a line of network switches that are designed for use in enterprise network environments. The Cisco Catalyst Ethernet 24 Ports Managed Switch is a device that allows you to connect and manage up to 24 Ethernet devices, such as computers, servers, and other networking equipment. It can be managed through a web-based graphical user interface or through a command-line interface. The switch is designed to be scalable and flexible, with a range of features and options that allow you to customize it to meet the needs of your network. Some of the features of the Cisco Catalyst Ethernet 24 Ports Managed Switch include:
- 24 Ethernet ports for connecting devices
- Support for Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet speeds
- Web-based graphical user interface for easy management and configuration
- Quality of Service (QoS) features for optimizing network performance
- Security features such as access control lists (ACLs) and password protection
- Energy-efficient design to help reduce power consumption
- Support for advanced features such as link aggregation and VLANs (virtual LANs)
Remote Management and Monitoring
Remote management and monitoring of the WS-C2960S-24PS-L Cisco Catalyst 2960 Ethernet 24 Ports Managed Switch allows network administrators to access and manage the switch from a remote location, rather than having to be physically present at the switch.
One way to remotely manage the switch is by using the Cisco Network Assistant (CNA) software tool. CNA provides a centralized management interface for multiple Cisco switches, allowing administrators to configure and monitor the switch's settings, ports, and features.
Another method for remote management is through the use of the command-line interface (CLI) via Telnet or SSH. Telnet and SSH protocols allows an administrator to connect to the switch remotely and access the CLI, where they can issue commands and configure the switch.
Additionally, the switch supports the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), which allows it to be integrated with a network management system (NMS). This allows administrators to monitor the switch's performance, status, and other parameters, as well as receive notifications of any issues or errors.
Remote management and monitoring can be useful in situations where the switch is located in a remote location and it is not feasible for administrators to be physically present, or for monitoring multiple devices from one central location.
Security and Quality of Service
The WS-C2960S-24PS-L Cisco Catalyst 2960 Ethernet 24 Ports Managed Switch offers various security and Quality of Service (QoS) features to help protect the network and ensure optimal performance.
Security features include:
- Access Control Lists (ACLs) to restrict access to specific network resources
- Virtual LANs (VLANs) to segment the network and isolate different types of traffic
- IEEE 802.1X port-based authentication to secure access to the network
- Cisco TrustSec for security grouping and policy enforcement
- Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for secure remote management
- Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) for network access control and posture assessment
Quality of Service (QoS) features include:
- Class of Service (CoS) to prioritize different types of traffic
- Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED) to prevent network congestion
- Low Latency Queuing (LLQ) to ensure that time-sensitive traffic is delivered promptly
- Traffic policing and shaping to control bandwidth usage
These security and QoS features help to ensure that the network is protected from unauthorized access, and that important data is prioritized for a better performance.

About Refurbished Products
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.
