High-Performance of Managed Switch
The SX550X-24FT-K9 Cisco 24 Ports Managed L3 10GBase Switch offers high-performance capabilities to support the most demanding network environments.
One of the key high-performance features of the SX550X-24FT-K9 is its support for 10 Gbps Ethernet, providing high-speed connectivity for bandwidth-intensive applications such as video streaming, virtualization, and cloud services.
The SX550X-24FT-K9 also supports advanced routing and switching capabilities, including OSPF, BGP, and MPLS, which allow for efficient and efficient routing of network traffic.
Additionally, the SX550X-24FT-K9 supports Quality of Service (QoS) features such as traffic shaping and prioritization, which help to ensure that critical network traffic is given priority and that network resources are used efficiently.
The SX550X-24FT-K9 also supports advanced security features such as Access Control Lists (ACLs) and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), which help to protect the network from potential security threats.
Furthermore, the SX550X-24FT-K9 supports high-availability features such as StackWise-480 and StackPower, which provide redundancy and failover capabilities to ensure that the network remains up and running even in the event of a switch failure.
Quality of Service (QoS) Configuration
The SX550X-24FT-K9 Cisco 24 Ports Managed 10GBase Switch offers advanced Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities that allow administrators to effectively manage and prioritize network traffic. Here are the steps to configure QoS on the SX550X-24FT-K9:
- Log in to the switch using the command line interface (CLI) and enter privileged mode by typing "enable" and entering the password.
- Create a class-map that defines the type of traffic you want to prioritize. For example, to prioritize voice traffic, you could create a class-map called "voice-traffic" and match on the IP address of the voice traffic.
- Create a policy-map that assigns a priority level to the traffic defined in the class-map. For example, you could create a policy-map called "priority-traffic" that assigns a priority level of 5 to the voice-traffic class-map.
- Apply the policy-map to the appropriate interface or VLAN. For example, you could apply the "priority-traffic" policy-map to the VLAN that contains the voice traffic.
- Verify the configuration by using the "show policy-map" command to check that the policy-map is applied and that the traffic is being prioritized correctly.
- Save the configuration using the "write memory" command to ensure that it is retained across reboot.
It is important to note that QoS configuration may vary depending on the network's needs and topology. It is recommended to test the configuration before deploying it in a production environment.
Link Aggregation and Redundancy
The SX550X-24FT-K9 Cisco 24 Ports Managed Switch offers advanced link aggregation and redundancy features to ensure that the network remains up and running even in the event of a link failure.
One of the key link aggregation features of the SX550X-24FT-K9 is its support for Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). This protocol allows multiple physical links to be bundled together to form a single logical link, providing redundancy and increased bandwidth for the network. In the event of a link failure, traffic is automatically rerouted to the remaining links in the bundle, ensuring that the network remains up and running.
The SX550X-24FT-K9 also supports Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), which helps to prevent network loops and ensure that the network remains stable in the event of a link failure. Additionally, the switch supports Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) for more advanced network topologies.
Additionally, the SX550X-24FT-K9 supports the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) which allow to have redundant default gateways in the network, this is useful in case of a default gateway failure.

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.
