Touted as a cost-effective managed switch range, the Cisco Business 350 Series plays a pivotal role in optimizing small office networks. Its user-friendly dashboard is a boon for network establishment, and its advanced suite of features pave the way for digital growth. Furthermore, it ensures airtight security for crucial business operations.
In contrast to other small business switch solutions that often reserve managed network functionalities for their priciest models, each switch in the Cisco Business 350 Series is imbued with top-tier security management and networking features, vital for supporting data, voice, security, and wireless tech of enterprise quality. The deployment and configuration of these switches are straightforward, granting businesses the managed network amenities they necessitate.
One of the standout features is the availability of up to 48 Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports. This streamlines the deployment of advanced tech like IP telephony, wireless setups, and IP surveillance. This means devices like IP phones or wireless access points can be connected and powered using just one Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for individual power supplies, thus ensuring faster and cost-effective tech adoption.
The models are designed to support both 802.3af PoE and 802.3at PoE+. Furthermore, they facilitate an automated voice network deployment using a concoction of Cisco Discovery Protocol, LLDP-MED, Auto Smartports, and VSDP. This automation allows easy plug-and-play of any IP phone, guaranteeing immediate dial tone access. The switch configures the device seamlessly, ensuring voice traffic gets the utmost priority.
Another notable feature is the IPv6 support. As networks grow and the IP address structure evolves, these switches ensure a smooth transition to this next-gen networking protocol. While continuing to back the IPv4, it guarantees future-proof operations, and the switches have achieved the USGv6 and IPv6 Gold certification.
Moreover, the Cisco Business 350 Series Switches come with advanced Layer 3 traffic management capabilities, assisting businesses in segmenting their network efficiently. They offer static LAN Layer 3 routing which boosts network efficiency by offloading internal traffic management from routers, letting them focus on external traffic and security.
