Network Management and Security of Managed Switch

The WS-C3850-48XS-F-S Cisco Catalyst switch is a managed switch with 48 ports. It can be managed using a web interface or the command-line interface (CLI).

To secure the switch, it is recommended to set up secure passwords for the switch's login and enable and configure access control lists (ACLs) to restrict network access. Additionally, it is important to keep the switch's software and firmware up-to-date to ensure that any known security vulnerabilities are patched.

Other security features of the WS-C3850-48XS-F-S include:

  • Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for secure remote management
  • IEEE 802.1x authentication and access control
  • DHCP snooping and IP source guard
  • Dynamic ARP inspection (DAI)
  • Control plane protection
  • Quality of service (QoS)

It is also recommended to monitor and log switch activities, this can be done by enabling SNMP and syslogging on the switch.

It's also a good practice to implement VLANs to segregate the traffic in the network.

Automation and Programmability of 48-Ports Fiber Switch

The WS-C3850-48XS-F-S Cisco Catalyst switch is designed to be highly programmable and automatable. It supports several automation and programmability features such as:

  • Cisco Embedded Event Manager (EEM): This feature allows you to create custom scripts and policies to automate switch tasks, such as responding to network events or automating configuration changes.
  • Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI): This is a software-defined networking (SDN) solution that allows you to automate and manage the entire application lifecycle, from deployment to monitoring and troubleshooting.
  • Cisco onePK: This is a set of APIs that allows you to programmatically manage and automate the switch using a variety of programming languages, such as Python, Java, and C++.
  • Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO): This is a network automation platform that allows you to automate the management of multiple network devices across your entire infrastructure.
  • The switch also support NETCONF, RESTful API and YANG models, which allows to manage the switch using these protocols.

These features allow for efficient management and automation of the WS-C3850-48XS-F-S switch and can help to reduce manual errors and improve the overall efficiency of network operations.

It's also possible to use Ansible, a popular open-source automation tool, to automate the configuration and management of the switch. Ansible can be used to automate the switch configuration, backup, update and monitoring.

It's also possible to use Cisco DNA Center, a software-based management platform, to automate and manage the switch with a graphical interface.

  • 48 10-Gigabit SFP+ ports: These ports support high-speed connectivity for servers, storage, and other high-bandwidth devices.
  • Cisco IOS XE Software: This advanced operating system provides a wide range of features including Quality of Service (QoS), security, and network management.
  • Cisco StackPower technology: This technology allows the switch to be powered by other switches in the stack, providing increased power redundancy.
