Simple, flexible software suites help you achieve the latest software-defined WAN innovations and provide centralised management with security, application-aware policies, segmentation, and optimization for cloud connectivity, quality of service (QoS), remote mirroring, data sharing, protocol conversion, and advanced security. Intelligent Switch also known as smart switch are managed switches with a limited set of management features. Smart switches allow you to segment the network into workgroups by creating VLANs. They also offer some levels of security, such as 802.1x endpoint authentication, and in some cases with limited numbers of ACLs (access control lists). In addition, smart switches support basic quality-of-service (QoS) that facilitates prioritization of users and applications based on 802.1q/TOS/DSCP, adding to the versatility of the solution. Intelligent switches can make it possible to manage storage in heterogeneous environments, reduce costs, and provide expandability and scalability for existing and growing businesses.
As the business network grows, there will be a requirement for more sophisticated system to handle the increase in traffic. Smart switches offer more control over data streams and minimize network traffic jams and security risks. Switches are the basic building blocks for every network. Intelligent switches make it possible to manage storage in heterogeneous environments, reduce SAN costs, and provide expandability and scalability for existing SANs in large and growing businesses. In some sophisticated SANs, intelligent switches are the latest product in a technology.
Cisco switches are constantly learning, constantly adapting, constantly protecting. With Cisco switches you can build a foundation for extraordinary outcomes in the data center, core, or edge. Cisco switches are designed to deliver maximum network uptime, reducing the chance of a data breach or malicious attack due to critical systems going offline. Cisco's switching solutions also lock down information, authorize user movements, and work to mitigate threats. Cisco switches offer scalable performance, integrated services, and flexible configurations. They are designed to adapt to the fluctuating needs across IT and the organization, and allows easy perform incremental upgrades.
