Switch to something new: Catalyst 9300 Series switches

Boost speed and performance with our newest, most secure switches! The Catalyst 9300 Series includes our highest density fixed-access, stackable enterprise network switches.

Catalyst 9300 Series Switches


The Cisco® Catalyst® Compact Switches easily expand your Ethernet and Multigigabit Ethernet infrastructure outside the wiring closet to enable new workspaces, extend wireless LANs, and connect PoE devices. These fanless, small form-factor switches are ideal for space-constrained deployments where multiple cable runs would be challenging. With speeds that reach 10Gbps, the Cisco Catalyst 3560CX Multigigabit Ethernet Switches support current and next-generation wireless speeds and standards (including 802.11ac Wave 2) on existing cabling infrastructure

The Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX and 2960-CX Series Compact Switches help optimize network deployments. These Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and Multigigabit Ethernet (mGig) managed switches are ideal for high-speed data connectivity, Wi-Fi backhaul, and Power over Ethernet (PoE+) connectivity in places where space is at a premium. With a single copper or fiber cable from the wiring closet, Cisco 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 can come out of the data closet and be placed closer to the users. This means shorter cable runs and greater flexibility as you grow your network

Features and Benefits:


Cisco Digital Network Architecture

Only Cisco delivers a digital-ready approach that starts at the edge and extends to where applications reside.

Small but powerful

The 3560-CX PoE fanless switch offers Layer 3 switching. It supplies a PoE capacity of up to 240W on 8 or 12 Gigabit Ethernet ports. It also supports Multigigabit technology, which lets you use existing cat 5e/6 cabling.


Connects IoT endpoints

The switch supports IP connections for PoE+ devices. You don't need to install electrical circuits to power access points, IP phones, video endpoints, or other devices. Get PoE+ support with up to 240W of PoE budget. Deploy switches in buses, trains, subways with DC power.

Includes advanced features

This switch integrates with Cisco TrustSec for identity and security. It offers support for Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module for SDN programmability. And the switch is easy to deploy with network plug and play.
