Cisco SX350X-12 Network Switch Dubai
Cisco SX350X-12 Dubai switches are designed to protect your technology investment as your business grows. Unlike switches that claim to be stackable but have elements that are administered and troubleshot separately, the Cisco 350X Series provides true stacking capability, allowing you to configure, manage, and troubleshoot multiple physical switches as a single device and more easily expand your network.
A true stack delivers a unified data and control plane, in addition to management plane, providing flexibility, scalability, and ease of use because the stack of units operates as a single entity. Overall, the Cisco 350X Series provides the ideal technology foundation for a growing business.
High-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet
Cisco SX350X-12 Dubai switches break the barrier of 10 Gigabit Ethernet adoption by providing affordable and powerful features for growing small and medium-sized business networks. With the 10G ports in both copper and fiber, you can easily and cost-effectively enable 10G connections to servers and network storage devices with standard RJ-45 Ethernet cables. You can also aggregate 10G Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) fiber connections to build a high-performance backbone to dramatically increase the overall speed of your network.
Network needs are changing quickly. With evolving wireless standards and the rising number of wireless devices, keeping up with data rates and growing traffic can be a challenge. Your traditional Ethernet infrastructure can support speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps), but competing today requires much more capacity. One option is to completely replace your older cabling infrastructure and upgrade your hardware. But wouldn’t it be better to increase network speed and traffic capacity in a way that’s quick, inexpensive, and efficient?
Multigigabit Ethernet technology uses capabilities in your existing cabling infrastructure to meet bandwidth requirements and provide up to five times the performance of a 1G switch. The technology enables intermediate data rates of 2.5 and 5 Gbps to ease the jump from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps. These intermediate rates run on most installed cables and preserve older Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) wiring, which is good for 802.11ac and 802.11ax wireless LAN applications.
The technology also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), including PoE+ and 60W PoE. Cisco Multigigabit Ethernet switches help you avoid having to run multiple cables between switches and access points and let your networks welcome next-generation traffic speeds and data rates.
Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) and 60W PoE
PoE technology simplifies the deployment of IP phones and wireless access points by allowing you to connect and power network endpoints over a single Ethernet cable, without having to install separate power supplies. The Cisco SX350X-12 Dubai switches support 15W PoE and 30W PoE+. The switches also support 60W PoE on selected ports to power compact switches, high-power wireless access points, or connected lighting. The PoE power is intelligently managed such that only the amount of power needed by an endpoint is delivered to it and none is wasted. As a result, the switches can support devices that require more power, such as 802.11ac wireless access points, video-based IP phones, surveillance cameras, and more. The PoE features in the 350X Series switches are also fully backward compatible with 802.3af PoE, 802.3at PoE+, and Cisco legacy PoE protocols.
High reliability and resiliency
In a growing business where availability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is critical, you need to assure that employees can always access the data and resources they need. In these environments, stackable switches can play an important role in minimizing downtime and improving network resiliency. For example, if the master switch within a Cisco 350X Series stack fails, another switch takes over, keeping your network up and running. You can also replace individual devices in the stack without taking your whole network offline or affecting employee productivity.
The Cisco SX350X-12 Dubai Series also supports dual images, allowing you to perform software upgrades without having to worry about the network going down during the upgrade.
Some switches claim to support stacking, but they only support “clustering” or “virtual stacking,” which means each switch must still be managed and configured individually. They cannot be managed as a single entity or device. Cisco Cisco SX350X-12 Dubai switches provide true horizontal stacking, enabling you to configure, manage, and troubleshoot multiple physical switches as a single device, with a single IP address, for up to four units and up to 208 ports.
