Built-in security and advanced networking features support business-class data, voice, security, and wireless solutions.
48 Fast Ethernet and four Gigabit Ethernet ports provide fast, reliable access to applications and network resources.
Fast, reliable access to the resources you need
The SF 300-48 Switch has 48 10/100 and four 10/100/1000 ports—two of which are combination mini-GBIC ports. This allows you to connect small office devices, such as computers, printers, and wireless access points, as well as multiple switches to each other, giving employees fast, reliable access to the resources they need. By providing both Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in the same switch, you achieve optimal network performance, ensuring availability of your business-critical applications. The SF 300-48 Switch also provides the flexibility you need to interconnect a variety of devices across your network, including voice, security, storage, and wireless solutions. In addition, the Cisco switch offers several advanced networking features, including support for Layer 3 switching between VLANs for advanced traffic management as well as IPv6, remote management, and dual images support.
Built-in security keeps your network and data safe
The SF 300-48 includes a number of security features that let you tightly control access to your network, safeguarding the integrity of your data. Using access control lists (ACLs), you can authenticate and regulate new connections to your network, keeping unwanted users away from your business-critical information. With this device, you also can segment your network and provide a secure section for visitors by using the integrated guest VLAN capability.
In addition to strong security features, the SF 300-48 Switch provides business-class communication capabilities, such as support for IP telephony. If you already have IP phones connected to your company’s network, the switch will automatically configure the phones with the correct VLAN and quality-of-service (QoS) parameters to prioritize voice traffic.
The Cisco SF 300-48 Switch is easy to configure and manage; in addition, energy-saving technology reduces power consumption.
It just works so you can focus on your business
The SF 300-48 is an eco-friendly switch that’s been designed to conserve energy, which will save you money. The switch uses low-power chipsets and other “green” features to help protect the environment and optimize power consumption without compromising performance. And a fanless design further reduces energy costs while enabling quieter operation.
Cisco designed the SF 300-48 Switch to be easy to configure and to manage. Intuitive browser-based tools and mass deployment capabilities speed setup and reduce the amount of time you need to spend on network management tasks, such as QoS traffic prioritization. Cisco provides a limited lifetime warranty with next-business-day advance replacement (where available), software updates, and telephone technical support free of charge for the first 12 months. Also, the SF 300-48 is backed by the Cisco Small Business Support Service, an affordable three-year subscription-based plan that provides peace of mind and additional investment protection.
