Cisco Powers up Catalyst Line

Arthur Cole

Cisco Systems may have advanced virtualization and data fabric technologies in its sights, but it knows customers are also looking for advancements in bread-and-butter switching technology as well.

 

The company has announced plans to upgrade its Catalyst portfolio with Power over Ethernet (PoE) and 10 GbE capabilities that the company says will improve application delivery and network flexibility. The Catalyst 3750-E and 3560-E Series will be the first to be upgraded with PoE, with the larger 6500 and 4500-E devices due this spring.

 

The 3560-E is also slated for 10 GbE aggregation switching technology. The company is planning one device with 12 10 GbE ports, and one with 12 1 GbE ports plus two 10 GbE ports to help customers migrate their networks to the higher bandwidth.

 

For smaller organizations, Cisco will add PoE capability to the Catalyst 2960 Series for use with the new 2960 Compact Powered Device (PD) that will receive power from an upstream PoE switch to extend network capabilities beyond the wiring closet.
