Overview:

The Cisco® Catalyst® Digital Building Series Switch is the industry’s most power-efficient switch optimized for low-voltage Power over Ethernet (PoE) deployments and connectivity. The Digital Building Series Switch lays the foundation for powering and converging disparate building subsystems (lighting, HVAC, badging systems, metering, CCTV, access) onto a single IP network, thereby expanding, enabling, and accelerating the Cisco Digital Building ecosystem.

Companies today are going digital in an effort to enable new customer experiences, empower workforce innovation, and build innovative business models powered by analytics. Buildings are central to this digital transformation, as buildings are where most traditional businesses run and operate from. For enhanced experiences and improved efficiencies in buildings, owners and facilities managers realize the value in interconnecting various building sub-systems, including lighting, HVAC, security, sensors and audio-video systems, which have historically remained stagnant, disparate and difficult to manage. Although the convergence of these isolated sub-systems is fundamental to digital transformation, it has remained complex and costly to implement thus far.

This complex problem changes their quiet, fanless design and compact footprint, the Cisco Catalyst Digital Building Series Switches offer flexible mounting options and open up a variety of network design and connectivity options. They can be deployed to support a variety of use cases, and are leaps ahead of the last generation of lighting and building technology enablers. Figure 1 shows the Cisco Cata lyst Digital Building Switch.

Save on energy costs and enhance flexibility, safety, and productivity. Our Catalyst Digital Building plenum-rated UPOE fan-less switches are designed for smart buildings and optimized for low-voltage PoE. Combine lighting, air conditioning, security systems, and more on one IP network with seamless security and easy installation and management.

Features and Benefits:

feat-1

Intelligence and automation

Catalyst Digital Building Series Switches give you smart, simple, and highly secure access in a very compact and rugged standalone form factor. The smart and easy mobile installation app helps you install the switch in a snap.

Power lights and more

Innovation in LED lighting increases energy efficiency, cost-savings, and new smart lighting applications. Cisco Universal Power over Ethernet (UPOE) with 60 watts per port, a fan-less design, and energy-efficient operation make our switches the right choice to take control of your digital building.

feat-2
feat-3

Modern experiences and analytics

Organizations are seeking innovative ways to optimize and control space usage. Network-enabled connected sensors, HVAC, lighting, access, and more can provide robust connectivity to help you increase building analytics.

Lower installation and operating costs

Simple, low-voltage in-ceiling mounting and mobile app configuration reduces the cost of installation. With twice the power at 60W per port you gain greater luminosity without denser and more complex installations.
