Product Name: Catalyst 3750-X Ethernet Switch
Product Type: Ethernet Switch
The WS-C3750X-48P-E Cisco Catalyst Switch is a high-performance switch that requires proper power and cooling to function efficiently and reliably. The switch has a power supply of 715W AC and supports both internal and external power supply options.
Power: The switch supports both AC and DC power options, and it has a total power consumption of 715W. It is important to ensure that the switch is powered by a reliable power source, and that the power supply is adequate to meet the switch's power needs.
Cooling: The switch has a built-in cooling system that helps to keep the internal components at an optimal temperature. The switch has fans that run to dissipate heat and to ensure proper airflow through the switch. It is important to ensure that the switch is installed in a location that has adequate airflow and that the switch is not blocked by other equipment or debris.
Energy Efficiency: The switch supports Cisco EnergyWise technology, which allows you to monitor and control the energy consumption of the switch and connected devices. This can help you to reduce energy costs and to make your network more environmentally friendly.
Temperature: The switch has a maximum operating temperature of 104°F (40°C). It is important to ensure that the switch is installed in an environment that is within this temperature range to ensure proper operation.
Power redundancy: the switch can be configured with dual power supply for redundancy, which can provide protection against power failure and help keep the switch running.
Power Budget: The switch has a power budget of 715W, it is important to keep in mind the power requirement of the device that will be connected to the switch, to ensure that the power budget is not exceeded.
Security and access control features
The WS-C3750X-48P-E Cisco Catalyst switch includes a number of security and access control features to help protect your network from unauthorized access and threats.
Access Control Lists (ACLs): The switch supports standard and extended ACLs, which can be used to control access to the network based on source and destination IP addresses, protocols, and ports.
Network Admission Control (NAC): NAC allows you to set policies that govern which devices are allowed to access the network, based on factors such as device type, operating system, and security posture.
Advanced Security: The switch has advanced security features such as Cisco TrustSec, which provides identity-based security and segmentation, and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) which allows for identity-based network access control.
Authentication: The switch supports various authentication methods including 802.1X, MAC Authentication Bypass (MAB), and Web Authentication (WebAuth) for access control.
Encryption: The switch supports various encryption protocols such as IEEE 802.1AE (MACSec) and SSL/TLS for secure communication.
Virtual private networks (VPNs): The switch supports VPN protocols such as IPsec and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for secure remote access.
Firewall: The switch has stateful firewall capability to control traffic flow based on various parameters such as IP addresses and ports.
Denial of Service (DoS) protection: The switch includes features to detect and prevent DoS attacks, which can overload and disrupt network services.
Advanced Malware Protection (AMP): The switch supports Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) which can help detect and block advanced malware threats.
Security Group Tagging (SGT): The switch supports Security Group Tagging (SGT) feature which allows you to assign security policies to specific users or devices.
Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Copy (SCP) : The switch supports SSH and SCP which allows you to access the switch and copy files securely.
Dynamic ARP Inspection (DAI): the switch support DAI feature which helps protect against ARP spoofing attacks by validating ARP packets in the network.
IPv6 Support: The switch supports IPv6 addressing and routing, which allows for secure communication using the latest IP protocol.
Flexible NetFlow (FNF): The switch supports Flexible NetFlow (FNF) which allows you to collect and analyze network traffic for security and performance monitoring.
Port security: The switch supports port security feature which allows you to set limits on the number of MAC addresses that can be learned on a specific port and also you can specify the MAC addresses that are allowed to connect to the port.
Quality of Service (QoS) and traffic management
The WS-C3750X-48P-E Cisco Catalyst switch includes Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities that allow administrators to prioritize different types of traffic for optimal performance.
Class of Service (CoS) and Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) marking: The switch supports CoS and DSCP marking, which allows administrators to assign different priority levels to different types of traffic, such as voice and video, based on the IEEE 802.1p standard.
Traffic shaping and policing: The switch supports traffic shaping and policing, which allows administrators to control the rate at which traffic is sent and received, ensuring that the network is not overwhelmed by high-bandwidth traffic.
Link aggregation and port-channeling: The switch supports link aggregation and port-channeling, which allows administrators to bundle multiple physical links together to create a single, high-bandwidth logical link.
Quality of Service (QoS) on a per-port and per-VLAN basis: QoS can be configured on a per-port and per-VLAN basis, which allows administrators to set different QoS policies for different types of traffic.
Priority Queuing (PQ) and Weighted Round Robin (WRR): The switch supports PQ and WRR, which are queuing mechanisms that allow administrators to assign different priorities to different types of traffic.
Weighted Fair Queuing (WFQ): The switch supports WFQ, which is a queuing mechanism that ensures that all traffic is treated fairly, regardless of its priority level.
Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED): The switch supports WRED, which helps to prevent network congestion by randomly dropping lower-priority packets when the network is congested.
Cisco Flexible NetFlow (FNF): The switch supports Cisco Flexible NetFlow (FNF) which allows for granular visibility and control of the network traffic and for troubleshooting
