      Gigabit Ethernet
    At speeds of 1000 Mbps, Gigabit Ethernet provides the bandwidth to meet new and evolving network demands, alleviate bottlenecks, and boost performance while increasing the return on existing infrastructure investments. Today’s workers are placing higher demands on networks, running multiple concurrent applications. For example, a worker joins a team conference call through an IP videoconference, sends a 10-MB spreadsheet to meeting participants, broadcasts the latest marketing video for the team to evaluate, and queries the customer relationship management (CRM) database for the latest real-time feedback. Meanwhile, a multigigabyte system backup starts in the background and the latest virus updates are delivered to the client.

      Intelligence in the Network
    Networks of today are evolving to address four new developments at the network edge:
  • Increase in desktop computing power
  • Introduction of bandwidth-intensive applications
  • Expansion of highly sensitive data on the network
  • Presence of multiple device types, such as IP phones, WLAN access points, and IP video cameras

    These new demands contend for resources with existing mission-critical applications. As a result, IT professionals must view the edge of the network as critical to effectively manage the delivery of information and applications.

    As companies increasingly rely on networks as their strategic business infrastructure, it is more important than ever to ensure their high availability, security, scalability, and control. By adding Cisco intelligent functions for LAN access, you can now deploy networkwide intelligent services that consistently address these requirements from the desktop to the core and through the WAN.

  •   Enhanced Security
    The wide range of security features that the Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series offers helps businesses protect important information, keep unauthorized people off the network, guard privacy, and maintain uninterrupted operation.

    The Cisco Identity Based Networking Services (IBNS) solution provides authentication, access control, and security policy administration to secure network connectivity and resources. Cisco IBNS in the Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series prevents unauthorized access and helps ensure that users get only their designated privileges. It provides the ability to dynamically administer granular levels of network access. Using the 802.1x standard and the Cisco Secure Access Control Server (ACS), users can be assigned a VLAN upon authentication, regardless of where they connect to the network. This setup allows IT departments to enable strong security policies without compromising user mobility, and with minimal administrative overhead.

      Availability and Scalability
    The Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series is equipped with a large set of features that allow for network scalability and higher availability through multicast filtering as well as a complete suite of Spanning Tree Protocol enhancements aimed to maximize availability in a Layer 2 network.

      Advanced QoS
    The Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series offers superior multilayer QoS features to help ensure that network traffic is classified and prioritized, and that congestion is avoided in the best possible manner. Configuration of QoS is greatly simplified through automatic QoS (Auto QoS), a feature that detects Cisco IP phones and automatically configures the switch for the appropriate classification and egress queuing. This optimizes traffic prioritization and network availability without the challenge of a complex configuration.
    The Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series can classify, reclassify, police, mark, queue, and schedule incoming packets and can queue and schedule packets at egress. Packet classification allows the network elements to discriminate between various traffic flows and enforce policies based on Layer 2 and Layer 3 QoS fields.
