Whether you need basic high-speed connectivity for your computers and servers or a comprehensive
voice, data, and wireless technology solution, Cisco 200 Series switches can meet your business needs.
Possible deployment scenarios include:
High-speed desktop connectivity. Cisco 200 Series switches can quickly and securely connect
employees working in small offices with one another and with all of the servers, printers, and other
devices they use. High performance and reliable connectivity help speed file transfers and data
processing, improve network uptime, and keep your employees connected and productive.
Secure wireless connectivity. Cisco 200 Series switches work with Cisco and third-party wireless
solutions to extend the reach of your network. Employees can work productively from conference
rooms and common areas, collaborate in any office, and access business applications from wherever
they are. Power over Ethernet (PoE) enables the switch to send power over the network cable to
power wireless access points and simplifies the wireless deployment. Gigabit Ethernet speed helps
ensure that your employees have the bandwidth and performance they need to make the most of
mobile productivity. And with embedded security, your employees can work with confidence, knowing
that only authorized users can access the network and network applications.
Unified communications. The Cisco 200 Series provides QoS features to enable you to prioritize
delay-sensitive traffic in your network and let you converge all of your communications solutions –
such as IP telephony and video surveillance – over a single Ethernet network. Cisco offers a complete
portfolio of IP telephony and other unified communications products designed for small businesses,
and Cisco 200 Series switches have been rigorously tested to help ensure easy integration and full
compatibility with these and other vendor products.

Network Switch vs. Router Primer
Switches and routers are the building blocks for all business communications, from data to voice and video to wireless access. They can improve profitability by enabling your company to increase productivity, trim business expenses, and improve security and customer service.
What is a network switch and what is a router? The two pieces of equipment look similar and perform some similar functions, but each has its own distinct function to perform on a network.
What is a Network Switch?
To understand basic networking, you first need to answer the question, "What is a network switch?"
Most business networks today use switches to connect computers, printers and servers within a building or campus. A switch serves as a controller, enabling networked devices to talk to each other efficiently. Through information sharing and resource allocation, switches save businesses money and increase employee productivity.
What is an Unmanaged Switch?
An unmanaged switch works right out of the box. It's not designed to be configured, so you don't have to worry about installing or setting it up correctly. Unmanaged switches have less network capacity than managed switches. You'll usually find unmanaged switches in home networking equipment.
What is a Managed Switch?
A managed network switch is configurable, offering greater flexibility and capacity than an unmanaged switch. You can monitor and adjust a managed switch locally or remotely, to give you greater network control. Storage Networks certified engineers are able to train, integrate, manage, and troubleshoot your network switches either on-site or remotely.
What is a Network Switch versus a Router?
Switches create a network. Routers connect networks. A router links computers to the Internet, so users can share the connection. A router acts as a dispatcher, choosing the best path for information to travel so it's received quickly.
Compare Cisco SMART Switch Series 200 Specifications
This report discusses the findings of a recent test of web-managed switch products for the SMB
(Small and Medium Business) market space. It specifically compares and contrasts the
features and performance of the Cisco SF300, SG300, and SG200 series of switches with
similar products offered by HP and D-Link. The report was sponsored by Cisco.
Cisco delivered the highest capacity and scalability of configuration parameters including VLANs, MACs, ACLs, and IP routes. These Cisco switches also provided resiliency when subjected to a DoS attack.

Cisco Small Business Network Accessories
Add fiber-optic connectivity in the form of an easy-to-install Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) transceiver. This allows you to expand your switches to gigabit networking by using an SFP-mounting transceiver module that improves performance.
• Adds fiber-optic connectivity to Cisco Small Business and Cisco Small Business Pro Series switches
• High-performance link for connecting networks within a building or small campus area
• Easy removal with an integrated spring latch
