Suitable Performance

The WS-C4908G-L3 Cisco Catalyst Layer 3 Switch is a high-performance 8-port Ethernet switch designed for use in enterprise networks. It is built on the Cisco Catalyst platform, which is known for its high performance, security, and reliability.

One of its key features is its Layer 3 capabilities, which allow the switch to perform routing functions in addition to switching. This means that the switch can route traffic between different subnets, allowing for more efficient use of network resources and improved performance.

The switch is also designed to support high-bandwidth applications, such as video and data storage. It has a high-speed switching fabric and a large buffer memory to handle the high-bandwidth traffic. This ensures that the switch can handle the large amount of data that is generated by these applications without any congestion.

Additionally, the WS-C4908G-L3 is also suitable for supporting high-availability network design. It supports redundancy protocols like HSRP and VRRP, which provide redundancy and failover capabilities, ensuring that the network remains up and running even in case of device failure.

Furthermore, the switch is also equipped with advanced security features such as Access Control List (ACL), Quality of Service (QoS), and Port-based security. This provides the network administrator with a granular control over the traffic and users on the network, and also helps in mitigating security threats.

Exceptional Reliability

The WS-C4908G-L3 Cisco Catalyst Layer3 8-Port Ethernet Switch is a high-performance switch designed for use in enterprise networks. One of its key features is its exceptional reliability, making it suitable for use in mission-critical applications and environments.

This switch is a Layer 3 switch which means that it can perform routing functions in addition to switching. It supports advanced routing protocols such as OSPF, EIGRP, and BGP, allowing it to route traffic between different subnets and VLANs within the network.

The switch also supports advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), which allows network administrators to prioritize and control the flow of traffic on the network, ensuring that critical applications and services receive the bandwidth they need.

Additionally, the switch supports advanced security features such as access control lists (ACLs) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) functionality, which helps to secure the network and protect it from unauthorized access.

In terms of reliability, the switch has a redundant power supply and a modular design that allows for easy replacement of individual components, reducing downtime in the event of a failure.

Compliant Standards

The WS-C4908G-L3 Cisco Catalyst Layer3 Switch is a managed 8-port switch that supports Layer 3 routing protocols, making it suitable for use in large, complex networks. It is designed for enterprise and service provider environments and is compliant with several industry standards, including:

  • IEEE 802.3: The standard for Ethernet networks that defines the physical layer and the data link layer of the OSI model.
  • IEEE 802.3u: The standard for Fast Ethernet networks that defines the physical layer and the data link layer of the OSI model for 100BASE-TX and 100BASE-FX networks.
  • IEEE 802.3z: The standard for Gigabit Ethernet networks that defines the physical layer and the data link layer of the OSI model for 1000BASE-X networks.
  • IEEE 802.3ab: The standard for Gigabit Ethernet over twisted-pair cable that defines the physical layer and the data link layer of the OSI model for 1000BASE-T networks.
  • IEEE 802.3x: The standard for flow control in Ethernet networks that defines a method to control the flow of data in a network to prevent congestion.
  • IEEE 802.1D: The standard for Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) which allows the switch to automatically detect and prevent loops in the network.
  • IEEE 802.1Q: The standard for VLAN tagging that allows the switch to segment the network into multiple VLANs for improved security and performance.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

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).

Unmanaged Switches

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.

Managed Switches

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

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

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.
