This new series of switches supports Cisco EnergyWise technology, which enables companies to measure and manage power consumption of network infrastructure and network-attached devices, thereby reducing their energy costs and their carbon footprint. The Cisco Catalyst v2 Series consumes less power than its predecessors and is the ideal access layer switch for enterprise, retail, and branch-office environments, as it maximizes productivity and investment protection by enabling a unified network for data, voice, and video.
Figure 1. Table 1. This option eliminates the need to reload a specific Cisco IOS Software release during deployment, thereby reducing deployment time and cost. Cisco EnergyWise The Cisco Catalyst v2 series support Cisco EnergyWise, which is a technology that enables monitoring, reporting, and management of energy consumption by end devices that are Cisco EnergyWise enabled. This technology enables companies to reduce their energy cost and carbon footprint.
PoE eliminates the need for wall power outlets for each PoE-enabled device and significantly reduces the cost for additional electrical cabling that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments.
Taking advantage of Cisco Catalyst Intelligent Power Management, the Cisco Catalyst v2 port PoE configurations can deliver the necessary power to support 24 ports at Maximum power availability for a converged voice and data network is attainable when a Cisco Catalyst v2 series switch is combined with the Cisco Redundant Power System RPS for protection against internal power supply failures and an uninterruptible power supply UPS system to safeguard against power outages.
Redundant Power System The Cisco Catalyst v2 Series access switches support the new generation of Cisco RPS , which increases availability in a converged data, voice, and video network by providing transparent power backup to two of six attached Cisco Catalyst v2 Series Switches at the same time.
The Cisco Catalyst v2 Series switches are capable of reverting back to their internal power supply without any service interruption. The 50cm cable is an alternative to using SFP transceivers when interconnecting Cisco Catalyst v2 switches through their SFP ports over a short distance.
Figure 2. Cisco SmartPort macros offer a set of verified, pretested, Cisco-recommended switch port configurations or templates per connection type that are easy to apply, enabling users to consistently and reliably configure essential security, IP Telephony, availability, QoS, and manageability features with minimal effort and expertise.
This feature can be used to implement a "zero touch deployment". The feature allows persistent allocation of IP addresses to specified network devices. This feature can be used to monitor network events and program automatic actions based on these network events.
Policies can be defined via CLI or Tcl script and can be used in a variety of scenarios, such as automatically backing up a configuration file at a specified time or triggering an alert when traffic congestion crosses a specified threshold. This feature allows you to replace a configuration file with a saved configuration file without a switch reload, and up to 14 configuration files can be saved. This feature determines if the client has an This feature is useful for PXE environments and other applications where network connectivity is required prior to An ACL is used to allow traffic prior to authentication.
For example, if the order is set to This feature includes support for multiple authentication methods, such as The user enters the authentication info, such as user id and password, and gets authenticated via a AAA server. This can be used to prevent attacks that attempt to poison the DHCP binding database, and to rate limit the amount of DHCP traffic that enters a switch port.
Availability and Scalability The Cisco Catalyst v2 Series is equipped with a robust set of features that allow for network scalability and higher availability through IP routing as well as a complete suite of Spanning Tree Protocol enhancements aimed to maximize availability in a Layer 2 network.
If an interface goes down, the peer interface will carry all the traffic for all VLANs. The Cisco Express Forwarding-based routing architecture allows for maximum scalability and performance. Implementing routed uplinks to the core improves network availability by enabling faster failover protection and simplifying the Spanning Tree Protocol algorithm by terminating all Spanning Tree Protocol instances at the aggregator switch. Redirection of a packet after a link failure using a routing protocol results in faster failover than a solution that uses Layer 2 spanning-tree enhancements.
Additionally, routed uplinks allow better bandwidth use by implementing equal cost routing ECR on the uplinks to perform load balancing. Routed uplinks optimize the utility of uplinks out of the LAN Access by eliminating unnecessary broadcast data flows into the network backbone. The IP Services license is required.
This feature can be used to monitor performance and to prove service levels. This feature also allows you to set threshold limits to notify MAC changes.
Advanced QoS The Cisco Catalyst v2 series offers superior multilayer, granular 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. Switches exchange speed, duplex, and power settings with end devices such as IP phones. Available at no cost, Cisco Network Assistant can be downloaded from Cisco. It integrates these capabilities into a world-class solution for improving the accuracy and efficiency of your operations staff, while increasing the overall availability of your network.
