Product Overview

The Cisco  SRW2008 8-Port Gigabit Switch (Figure 1) brings Gigabit speeds to your users while adding intelligence and security to the network. The eight 10/100/1000 Mbps ports enable you to take advantage of the Gigabit Ethernet interfaces shipping in the current generation of servers, workstations, and storage devices, in addition to supporting existing 10/100 Mbps clients. The optional mini Gigabit Interface Converter (mini-GBIC) ports allow you to expand your network as your business grows.
For security, the Cisco SRW2008 incorporates IEEE 802.1 VLANs, IEEE 802.1X port authentication, and MAC-based filtering. The switch also has access control lists (ACLs), which provide more granular security settings as well as improved QoS control through IEEE 802.1p, Differentiated Services (DiffServ), or type of service (ToS) prioritization schemes. The enhanced QoS capability, combined with the SRW2008's advanced traffic-management features, helps ensure clear and reliable voice and video communications.
WebView management software provides an intuitive, secure management interface, enabling you to better utilize the comprehensive feature set of the Cisco SRW2008, for a better-optimized, more secure network.
