Improve Service and Security in Your LAN
The Cisco Catalyst 3560 v2 Series are next-generation, energy-efficient, Layer 3 Fast Ethernet switches. These new switches support Cisco EnergyWise technology, which helps companies manage power consumption of the network infrastructure and network-attached devices, thereby reducing their energy costs and their carbon footprint.
The new switches consume less power than their predecessors and are ideal access layer switches for enterprise, retail, and branch-office environments. They help you maximize productivity and provide investment protection by enabling a unified network for data, voice, and video.
The Cisco Catalyst 3560 is available with one of two software images:
- IP Base software includes advanced quality of service (QoS), rate limiting, access control lists (ACLs), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) for routed access, and IPv6 functionality.
- IP Services software provides a broader set of enterprise-class features, including advanced hardware-based IP Unicast and IP Multicast routing, as well as policy-based routing (PBR).
Simple Network Management
- Available for the Catalyst 3560 Series, the Cisco Network Assistant is a centralized management application for switches, routers, and wireless access points. Free of charge, the application provides configuration wizards that greatly simplify the implementation of converged networks and intelligent network services.
