Lippis Report 205: Cisco Compact Switches Extend Borderless Network Services to Furthest Network Points

February 4th, 2013

nicklippis.jpgCisco extended its line of Catalyst Compact Switches with twelve new “fanless” models. The new Catalyst Compact Switches support PoE +, GbE connectivity, hardware acceleration, security, energy management and most importantly, zero touch configuration and remote management features. These Compact Switches are designed to address unique requirements in the education, retail, hospitality, health care and manufacturing sectors, as well as conference rooms and small outpost offices of large corporations. What’s common across these industry sectors is the lack of IT staff usually present in classrooms, retail outlets, doctor’s offices, hotels, etc., to support local networking requirements, however many wish to deploy the same security, power and connectivity network services enjoyed at their larger facilities. With this in mind, Cisco’s Catalyst Compact Switches deliver new design options that fundamentally reduce wiring and operational cost through remote network management while increasing network performance. The same security services found in its Catalyst Access Switches, such 2960-S, 3750-X, 3560-X and 4500E, are also available in the Compact Switches. The Catalyst Compact Switches price points vary from the low range 2960-C to higher end 3560-C with GE and POE+ support.   In short, Cisco’s Catalyst Compact Switches extend Cisco’s borderless network services and smart operations to the furthest points of any network. In this Lippis Report, we review Cisco’s new line of Catalyst Compact Switches.

Avoiding Network Polarization and Increasing Visibility in Cloud Networks Using Broadcom Smart-Hash Technology

Get the White Paper

February 4th, 2013

By Broadcom

Today’s massive scale data centers offer high aggregate network bandwidth for large compute clusters. Fast, fat and flat networks are widely deployed with the more ubiquitous adoption of computer virtualization and the proliferation of clustered applications. Broadcom’s StrataXGS architecture-based Ethernet switches support the SmartSwitch series of technologies to ensure that such network infrastructure design requirements can be implemented comprehensively, cost-effectively and in volume scale. Broadcom’s Smart-Hash technology, part of SmartSwitch, implements several new hashing enhancements that improve network performance and overcome limitations imposed by traditional schemes. This white paper discusses current data center traffic trends, the implications of such and related enhancement featured in Smart-Hash technology.
