- Small form factor, fanless design and silent operation
The switch can be used in open workspaces and other areas that cannot tolerate equipment noise and where multiple cable runs could be difficult, expensive, and intrusive.
- Flexible mounting
The switch can be mounted on the wall, under a desk, rack, DIN rail, or practically anywhere they are needed.
- 10 Gigabit SFP+ uplinks
Accommodates business growth and increased traffic, such as aggregate upstream gigabit traffic loads from 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points.
- PoE pass-through
PoE pass-through gives the ability to power PoE end devices through drawing Cisco UPOE from the wiring closet. The Catalyst has eight downlink ports with two Cisco UPOE input ports that allow it to be powered by another switch. These switches do not need a power supply and receive power over the uplink from an upstream PoE or Cisco UPOE device, providing deployment flexibility and availability. These switches are ideal for wiring-constrained and space-constrained applications.
- Cisco Instant Access mode
This mode enables a single point of management and operation for campus networks. Catalyst compact switch with 10 G SFP+ uplinks can be connected to the core switches, and the entire configuration can then work as a single extended switch with a common management domain.
- Cisco Network Plug-and-Play
Network Plug-and-Play is a secure, scalable solution that accelerates network device deployments by automating the installation and configuration of Cisco IOS software. The switch can be used as part of the APIC-EM solution for automated switch deployments. This feature helps improve productivity, cut costs, reduce downtime, and enhance the user experience.
The Catalyst 3560-CX Series compact switches help optimize network deployments. These Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) managed switches are ideal for high-speed data connectivity, Wi-Fi backhaul, and Power over Ethernet connectivity in places where space is at a premium. With a single copper or fiber cable from the wiring closet, Catalyst compact switches enable IP connectivity for devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, surveillance cameras, PCs, and video endpoints. With their quiet, fanless design and compact footprint, these switches offer mounting and connectivity flexibility. Use them in offices, classrooms, hotels, retail stores, and other enterprise and branch locations. The setup allows for shorter cable runs from the compact switches, allowing for flexibility in space redesign and growth as the devices join the network - this eliminates the need for expensive and inflexible cabling infrastructure.
