Why Migrate to Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches?

Cisco has launched two new products within the Cisco Catalyst 9000 families, Switch Catalyst 9200 and the wireless LAN controller Catalyst 9800 . With these new models, CISCO brings wireless access into the new era of intent-based networking. A network that learns, adapts, and protects your investment, and becomes more efficient and secure over time.

In today’s article we will focus on the CISCO Catalyst 9200 Switch .

Why upgrade to Cisco® Catalyst® 9200 Series Switches?

The catalyst 9200 Series switches They are focused on SMEs but what does it offer us?

  • Faster core, faster access

The Catalyst 9200 series switches are twice as fast and have twice the capacity than traditional switches.

  • Safety everywhere

Integrated security reduces attack inputs, helps you detect and stop threats.

Get advanced security features that protect the integrity of your hardware, software, and all data flowing through the switch. Through Talos, Trustworthy Solutions, MAC SEC encryption and segmentation.

  • Centralized management

SD-Access and Web UI help bridge the IT gaps created by cloud, virtualization, and automation technologies. Simple web UI or DNA Center provisioning combined with open Cisco IOS XE APIs and UADP ASIC programmability.

Cisco IOS XE: It is the latest update to Cisco’s core operating system. It’s modular, programmable, and supports all the capabilities of our new network controller, DNA Center. That means with a simple user interface, you can automate, set policies, provide security, and gain security across your entire wired and wireless network, from the most remote branch or campus to your most central central system.

ASIC with programmable micromotors and pipeline capabilities, along with configurable mapping based on Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding template, Access Control Lists (ACLs), and Quality of Service (QoS) entries

  • Always ON

Catalyst 9200 Series Switches provide enterprise-grade security, analytics, and resiliency to keep your business running smoothly. FRU fans and power supplies, modular uplinks, cold patches, perpetual PoE, and the industry’s highest mean time between failures (MTBF) make the Catalyst 9200 series switches stand out from others switches of its kind.
