Cisco® Catalyst® Express 500 Series switches deliver Cisco class networking tailored for businesses with up to 250 employees. Powered by Cisco Systems® technology, this family of Layer 2-managed Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet switches offers nonblocking, wire-speed performance that provides a secure network foundation optimized for data, wireless, and voice. Built-in advanced security features help ensure that your devices and network are protected.
The intuitive GUI simplifies setting up, running, and troubleshooting a network. Embedded Cisco Smartports with preset Cisco recommended network configurations, quality of service (QoS), security, and multicast settings allow for transparent integration of data, video, IP Communications, and wireless LAN applications. With Cisco Smartports technology, mission-critical traffic is prioritized; voice conversations are clear; bandwidth-intensive video traffic does not impact other applications on the network-and your wireless network is secure. Integrated intelligence within the switch helps you detect device and network problems before they impact your business.
