Stackable design and scalability options

The WS-CE500-24LC Cisco Catalyst Express 24 Ports Managed Desktop Switch has a stackable design and scalability options to allow for easy expansion and management of your network.

Stackable design:

  • The switch is designed to be stacked with other WS-CE500 switches to provide increased performance and scalability.
  • StackWise technology allows up to nine switches to be stacked together, providing a single logical switch and a single management interface.
  • StackWise also allows for automatic failover, providing high availability and redundancy in case of a switch failure.

Scalability options:

  • The switch supports up to 24 ports of 10/100/1000 Ethernet and two Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) ports, providing flexibility for connecting devices.
  • The switch also supports VLANs, allowing for increased security and network segmentation.
  • The switch supports Quality of Service (QoS) features, allowing for improved network performance and prioritization of critical traffic.

The WS-CE500-24LC also supports Cisco Network Assistant, a web-based management tool that simplifies the configuration and troubleshooting of Cisco switches and routers. It allows administrators to monitor and manage their network from a central location, reducing the need for on-site visits.

Advanced security features

The WS-CE500-24LC Cisco Catalyst Express 24 Ports Managed Switch has advanced security features to protect your network from unauthorized access and malicious attacks.

Some of the advanced security features include:

  • Access Control Lists (ACLs): Allows administrators to control access to the network by defining policies that determine which users and devices are allowed to access specific network resources.
  • Port Security: Allows administrators to limit the number of MAC addresses that can be learned on a specific switch port, preventing unauthorized devices from connecting to the network.
  • IEEE 802.1X: Allows administrators to authenticate users and devices before granting access to the network, providing an additional layer of security.
  • Dynamic ARP Inspection (DAI): Monitors ARP traffic on the network and prevents ARP spoofing attacks by validating the authenticity of ARP packets.
  • Cisco TrustSec: Allows administrators to create security policies that control access to network resources based on the identity of users and devices, providing an additional layer of security.
  • DHCP snooping: Monitors DHCP traffic on the network and prevents DHCP spoofing attacks by validating the authenticity of DHCP packets.
  • IP Source Guard: Allows administrators to limit IP traffic on a specific switch port to only traffic that has a valid IP source address, preventing IP spoofing attacks.
  • Cisco FlexVPN: allows an administrator to create virtual private networks (VPNs) to securely connect remote offices, mobile users, and business partners to the network.

Advanced monitoring and diagnostic tools

The WS-CE500-24LC Cisco Catalyst Express 24 Ports Managed Switch has advanced monitoring and diagnostic tools to help administrators effectively manage and troubleshoot their network.

Some of the advanced monitoring and diagnostic tools include:

  • Cisco Network Assistant (CNA): A web-based management tool that simplifies the configuration and troubleshooting of Cisco switches and routers. It allows administrators to monitor and manage their network from a central location, reducing the need for on-site visits.
  • Cisco Smartports: A feature that allows administrators to quickly and easily configure switch ports based on the type of device that is connected. Smartports automatically configure the switch port to match the device's capabilities and provide the optimal level of security and performance.
  • Cisco EnergyWise: A feature that helps organizations manage energy consumption and reduce costs. EnergyWise allows administrators to monitor energy usage and set power-saving policies to reduce energy consumption during periods of low usage.
  • Cisco Embedded Event Manager (EEM): A feature that enables an administrator to automate network management tasks, such as troubleshooting and event-triggered actions, by creating custom scripts.
  • Cisco Auto Smartports: A feature that enables the switch to automatically detect the type of device connected to a port, and to configure the port accordingly, without manual intervention.
  • Cisco IOS Software-based Quality of Service (QoS): A feature that allows administrators to prioritize network traffic based on class of service, providing more predictable network performance.
  • Cisco IOS Software-based Security: A feature that allows administrators to implement security policies such as VLANs, port security, and access control lists to protect the network from unauthorized access.
  • Cisco Smart Call Home: A feature that enables the switch to automatically send alerts and diagnostic information to Cisco technical support, reducing the time required to troubleshoot and resolve issues.

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.
