The SF 300-24PP Switch has 24 10/100 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+) and four 10/100/1000 ports—two of which are combination mini-GBIC ports. This allows you to connect small office devices, such as computers, printers, and wireless access points, as well as multiple switches to each other, giving employees fast, reliable access to the resources they need. By providing both Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in the same switch, you achieve optimal network performance, ensuring availability of your business-critical applications. The SF 300-24PP Switch also provides the flexibility you need to interconnect a variety of devices across your network, including voice, security, storage, and wireless solutions. Embedded PoE technology makes it easier to connect and power IP-based devices, such as phones and surveillance cameras, and wireless access points. In addition, the SF 300-24PP offers several advanced networking features, including support for Layer 3 switching between VLANs for advanced traffic management as well as IPv6, remote management, and dual images support.
The SF 300-24PP includes a number of security features that let you tightly control access to your network, safeguarding the integrity of your data. Using access control lists (ACLs), you can authenticate and regulate new connections to your network, keeping unwanted users away from your business-critical information. With this device, you also can segment your network and provide a secure section for visitors by using the integrated guest VLAN capability. In addition to strong security features, the SF 300-24PP Switch provides business-class communication capabilities, such as support for IP telephony. If you already have IP phones connected to your company’s network, the switch will automatically configure the phones with the correct VLAN and quality-of-service (QoS) parameters to prioritize voice traffic.
