With the 48-Port 220 Series Smart Plus Switch from Cisco small to medium sized businesses benefit from a switch capable of handling a large number of users. Along with the large user capacity supported by this switch, users benefit from enhanced security capabilities, streamlined management, and improved energy efficiency.
Once installed this Cisco Smart Switch supports up to 8,192 MAC addresses along with support for the 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol capable of configuring 8 groups with 8 ports per group and 16 candidates per port. VLAN features include support for up to 256 simultaneous VLANs as well as 802.1Q VLAN tagging and support for guest VLANs to help organize connected clients into specified groups.
Once the network has been configured, network administrators can implement a variety of security protocols to ensure connections and information remain secure. Features including port security, 802.1x authentication, and MAC address filtering allow administrators to restrict user access and lock ports to ensure only specified users have access to network resources. Additional security features including DoS prevention, Secure Shell Protocol, and Secure Sockets Layer help to mitigate the threats posed to the network and manage traffic.
With this 48-Port Cisco Switch network administrators also benefit from improved management capabilities. With a web based user interface it is possible to configure, monitor, and maintain various aspect of the network right from your web browser. Cisco has also included support for Cisco Small Business FindIT Network Tool for added management capabilities. It is even possible to upgrade the switch firmware using a web browser and Trivial File Transfer Protocol while dual image support keeps the network up and running while the firmware upgrade takes place.

Enhanced Network Security
- Support for network security applications such as IEEE 802.1X and port security can tightly limit access to specific segments of your network.
- Guest virtual LANs (VLANs) let you provide Internet connectivity to non-employee users while isolating critical business services from guest traffic.
- Security mechanisms such as broadcast/multicast/unknown unicast storm control and Bridge Protocol Data Unit (BPDU) guard can protect the network from invalid configurations or malicious intent.
- Denial-of-service (DOS) attack prevention helps to increase uptime in the event of a network attack.
- Embedded security can protect management data traveling to and from the switch and encrypt network communications.
- Protect management sessions using RADIUS, TACACS+, and support local database authentication as well as secure management communication over SSL, SSH, and SNMPv3.
Easy Configuration and Management
- Cisco FindIT Network Discovery Utility. This feature works through a simple toolbar on the user's web browser to discover Cisco devices on the network and display basic information, such as serial numbers and IP addresses. This aids in quicker configuration and deployment of Cisco Small Business products.
Advanced Network Management Capabilities
- Remote management. Using SNMP, you can set up and manage all switches and other Cisco devices in your network remotely.
- Dual image support. With the ability to maintain two images in permanent storage instead of only a single image that is traditionally supported on smart switches, you can perform software upgrades without taking the network offline or worrying about an outage because of a bad image file. This reduces switch downtime when the firmware is being upgraded or downgraded.
- Dual-configuration files support. Configure the device, validating that it is done correctly and then save this configuration to become effective after reboot. Additionally, a mirror configuration file provides automatic backup of the latest stable configuration file.
- IPv6 support. Cisco 220 Series Switches provide native support for IPv6, as well as the previous IPv4 standard. As a result, you can migrate to the next generation of networking applications and operating systems without an equipment upgrade.
