Features and Benefits:
Cisco Business 220 Series provides capabilities that help you create business-class networks. These features deliver a solution to simplify the operation, increase uptime, and get your business better connected to employees, customers, and suppliers. Some primary features include:
Easy configuration and deployment
Cisco Business 220 Series switches are designed to be easy to deploy and use by small businesses and the partners that manage them. Other ease-of-use features include the following:
- Cisco Business Dashboard is designed to manage Cisco Business switches, routers, and wireless access points. Using the Dashboard, you easily customize the interface and widgets to proactively manage your network. Cisco Business 220 Series switches connect directly to Cisco Business Dashboard, eliminating the need to set up separate hardware or a virtual machine on site.
- The Cisco Network Plug and Play solution provides a simple, secure, unified, and integrated offering to ease new device rollouts, as well as provisioning updates to an existing network. The solution provides a unified approach to provision Cisco routers, switches, and wireless devices with a zero touch deployment experience.
- The simple and intuitive web-based interfaces enable users without extensive IT expertise to configure, manage, and troubleshoot the switch in minutes. Configuration wizards simplify the most common configuration tasks and provide the tool for anyone to set up and manage the network.
Reliability and performance
Cisco Business 220 Series switches have been tested to deliver the high availability and performance that users have come to expect from Cisco switches. The switches speed up file transfer times, keep vital business applications available, and help your employees respond more quickly to customers and each other. With enhanced QoS capabilities, the Cisco Business 220 Series also gives you the flexibility to manage and prioritize high-bandwidth traffic so you can easily integrate all the business communications and connectivity needs on a single converged infrastructure.
Power over Ethernet (PoE)
PoE+ streamlines the deployment for wireless access points, IP telephony, and video surveillance by allowing power and data to run over a single network cable. Cisco Business 220 Series switches support PoE+, which provides up to 30 watts of power per port. PoE+ can enable deployments for 802.11ac wireless access points, Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) IP cameras, and videophones, delivering more flexibility and investment protection.
The Cisco Business 220 Series switches provide new levels of security for smart switches and deliver more ways to safeguard your network.
- Support for network security applications such as the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.1X and port security can tightly limit access to specific segments of your network.
- Extensive Access Control Lists (ACLs) can restrict sensitive portions of the network from unauthorized users and guard against network attacks.
- Security mechanisms such as broadcast/multicast/unknown unicast storm control and Bridge Protocol Data Unit (BPDU) guard can protect the network from invalid configurations or malicious intent.
- Denial-of-Service (DOS) attack prevention helps to increase uptime in the event of a network attack.
Optimal energy efficiency
Cisco Business 220 Series switches are designed with Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) and Energy Detect support on all models, as well as fanless designs on selected models. These designs help you save operational expenses and reduce your environmental footprint.
Peace of Mind and Investment Protection
Cisco Business 220 Series switches offer the reliable performance, investment protection, and peace of mind you expect from a Cisco switch. Complementary one-year access to our Small Business Support Center provides ongoing support. The 3-year limited hardware warranty with return to factory replacement keeps your business running smoothly.
