Cisco WS-C2950-24, 24 port 10/100 Catalyst Switch Standard Image.
Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches are fixed-configuration models that provide wire-speed Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for small and medium-sized networks. The Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series is an affordable product line that brings intelligent services, such as enhanced security, high availability, and advanced quality of service (QoS), to the network edge—while maintaining the simplicity of traditional LAN switching.
Embedded in all Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches is the Cisco Device Manager software, which allows users to easily configure and monitor the switch using a standard Web browser, eliminating the need for more complex terminal emulation programs and knowledge of the command-line interface (CLI). Customers can easily initialize the switch with web-based Cisco Express Setup, without using the CLI. In addition, with Cisco Network Assistant, a standalone network management software, customers can simultaneously configure and troubleshoot multiple Cisco Catalyst desktop switches. Cisco Device Manager, Cisco Express Setup, and Cisco Network Assistant reduce the cost of deployment by enabling less-skilled personnel to set up switches quickly. Furthermore, Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches provide extensive management tools using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) network management platforms such as CiscoWorks.
This product line offers two distinct sets of software features and several configurations to allow small, medium-sized, and enterprise branch offices to select the right combination for the network edge. Cisco Standard Image software offers Cisco IOS® Software capabilities for basic data, voice, and video services. For networks that require additional security, advanced QoS, and high availability, Cisco Enhanced Image software delivers intelligent services such as rate limiting, QoS reclassifying, and security filtering for deployment at the network edge.
