The Cisco SR2024T 24 Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch provides non-blocking, wire speed switching for your 10, 100, and 1000 megabit network clients. Drop the Cisco SB SR2024 switch in place of your current workgroup hub or switch, and you can upgrade your high-requirement workstations to full Gigabit speeds as necessary, while continuing to service other clients at their current speeds. The Cisco SB SR2024T is perfect for graphics, multimedia, and other applications that have to move large files across the network quickly, and when you need to expand your network even further, the two Mini-GBIC ports let you add fiber-optic capability easily and cost effectively.
You don't need any additional software or technical configuration in order to deploy the switch in your small business environment. The Cisco SR2024T 24-Port Gigabit Switch works right out of the box, quickly integrating into a typical small business network without complicated installation procedures or costly network downtime. Transferring files and sharing multimedia elements between systems becomes a reliable, smooth experience for devices connected via the 24-port switch. In addition, integrated Quality-of-Service (QoS) control mechanisms work to improve the transfer quality of essential network information-such as video teleconferencing or voice-based transmissions-without sacrificing your business's ability to perform typical network functions.
A built-in energy-saving feature allows the switch to reduce your power consumption and related costs without any configuration from an end-user. The Cisco SR2024T 24-Port Gigabit Switch will automatically enter sleep mode when necessary, turning off unused ports and automatically adjusting its internal power capacity to deliver full support for your connected devices when they need it-and making sure that resources aren't wasted when they don't.
The Cisco SR2024T 24-Port Gigabit Switch also comes provisioned for auto-switching Ethernet capability. This allows the Cisco SR2024T 24-Port Gigabit Switch to automatically sense the speeds of connected network devices and deliver the appropriate connection speed depending on the compatibility needs of legacy products. Similarly, automated MDI and MDI-X cable detection eliminates the need for crossover cables when using the switch. Installations run smoother when integrating the switch into an older network architecture that relies on a mix of uplink ports and regular hubs to make the connections between devices; you can use either standard, straight-through Ethernet cables or crossover cabling to connect devices to the switch.
Rackmount Installation and Visual Troubleshooting
If your small business is already set up with a server rack environment, the Cisco SR2024T 24-Port Gigabit Switch will fit directly into your existing infrastructure via an included rackmount kit. Lights on the front of the switch correspond to the network status of its 24 ports. This lets you make a quick visual analysis of your network activity, affording you the opportunity to assess situations that might need troubleshooting. If a device suddenly drops offline or a segment of systems suffers a sudden outage, you'll be able to isolate the issue simply by looking at the front of the switch. The Cisco SR2024T 24-Port Gigabit Switch also comes with a limited lifetime warranty that gives you peace-of-mind assurance and helps prevent costly downtime for your business's key operations.
