Additionally, it offers the ability to deliver Power over Ethernet (PoE) to devices such as IP phones and wireless access points. This Switch is end-of-life and end-of-sale by Cisco.
Advanced Security and Quality of Service (QoS) Capabilities
The WS-C3560E-24TD-E Cisco Catalyst 3560E Switch has advanced security and quality of service (QoS) capabilities that help to protect and prioritize network traffic.
Security features include:
Access control lists (ACLs) to control access to network resources
IEEE 802.1X port-based authentication for secure access to the network
DHCP snooping to prevent DHCP spoofing attacks
Dynamic ARP inspection to prevent ARP spoofing attacks
IP Source Guard to prevent IP spoofing attacks
Quality of service (QoS) features include:
Class-based weighted fair queueing (CBWFQ) for traffic shaping and prioritization
Low-latency queuing (LLQ) for real-time applications such as voice and video
Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED) for congestion management
These features allow the switch to provide a secure and reliable network infrastructure that can prioritize critical traffic such as voice and video, while also protecting against common network attacks.
Compatibility with Cisco Meraki Wireless Solutions
The WS-C3560E-24TD-E Cisco Catalyst 3560E Switch is compatible with Cisco Meraki wireless solutions. This means that it can be integrated with Cisco Meraki wireless access points (APs) to provide a seamless and unified wireless and wired network infrastructure.
By integrating the switch with Cisco Meraki wireless access points, network administrators can centrally manage and configure both the wired and wireless network from a single dashboard. This simplifies the deployment and management of the network infrastructure, and allows for easy monitoring and troubleshooting of both wired and wireless devices.
Additionally, the switch supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) which can power the Meraki wireless access points. This allows for a more efficient deployment as the Meraki wireless access points can be placed where power outlets are not available, reducing the need for additional cabling and power outlets.
Cisco Meraki wireless solutions are cloud-managed, which enables easy deployment and management of wireless networks. The Meraki solution is well-suited for branch offices, retail stores, and other distributed environments with high-density wireless traffic.
