To succeed in today’s competitive business environment, small businesses need a reliable network that provides high-speed connectivity to computers and servers, secure wireless access, as well as support for advanced technologies such as voice and video. The Cisco SG 200-18 is an affordable, high-performance, easy-to-use switch that’s built specifically for small businesses. One of the Cisco 200 Series of smart switches, the SG 200-18 combines the security, management, and quality-of-service (QoS) features required for a basic business network. And a limited lifetime warranty and one year technical support provides protection for your investment.
With 18 Gigabit Ethernet ports and two mini-GBIC uplink ports, the SG 200-18 provides fast, reliable access to network resources and applications.
Fast, reliable performance keeps networks running, employees productive
The SG 200-18 Switch is easy to configure and manage; in addition, energy-saving technology reduces power consumption.
The SG 200-18 smart switch provides 18 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet ports as well as two combination mini-GBIC uplink ports, allowing you to connect employees to each other and with the computers, servers, printers, and other devices they use. This high-performance, reliable connectivity helps speed file transfer times and improve network uptime, and allows employees to respond more quickly to customers and each other. In addition, the SG 200-18 works with Cisco and third-party wireless solutions to extend the reach of your network, allowing employees to access applications and work productively from wherever they are, including conference rooms or other offices.
Advanced features provide security and support future technologies
Your proprietary company information is your most important asset. The SG 200-18 provides integrated network security, which reduces the risk of a security breach. For example, the switch includes IEEE 802.1X port security, which allows you to control access to your network. You can work with confidence, knowing that unauthorized users can’t gain access to your network or your business data.
The SG 200-18 also provides more advanced features, such as IPv6 and IP telephony support. With native support for IPv6 as well as traditional IPv4, you’ll be able to take advantage of the next-generation of technologies, such as IPv6-enabled operating systems and applications—without having to upgrade your network. The SG 200-18 provides QoS features that allow you to prioritize delay-sensitive traffic in your network and converge all of your communications solutions, such as IP telephony and video surveillance, over a single Ethernet network and simplify deployments.
The SG 200-18 keeps your network and data safe with built-in security features.
Eco-friendly design, simple management tools help save money and time
The SG 200-18 uses energy-efficient technology to optimize power use without compromising performance, helping to reduce energy costs while protecting the environment. The switch is designed without a fan, which reduces power consumption, increases reliability, and provides quieter operation. Gigabit ports automatically power down when a link is not active. And, the switch includes embedded intelligence to adjust power based on cable length.
The SG 200-18 provides easy-to-use browser-based tools that reduce the time it takes to configure and manage your network. Cisco Discovery Protocol simplifies setup by discovering all connected Cisco devices and allowing them to share information. And Cisco FindIT Network Discovery Utility displays basic information, such as serial numbers and IP addresses, for the Cisco devices on your network.
Cisco provides a limited lifetime warranty and one year of technical support. The SG 200-18 is supported by the Cisco Small Business Support Center, where you can connect directly with a technician. In addition, you have access to technical and product information through the Cisco Small Business Support Community. The SG 200-18 switch is also eligible for the Cisco Small Business Investment Protection Program, which lets you upgrade your device to another Cisco Small Business or Cisco Catalyst switch in the future and receive credit for the value of your switch.
