Small businesses require cost-effective yet scalable networking solutions that can meet changing business needs. The Cisco SRW2048 48-Port Gigabit Switch brings Gigabit speeds to your users and servers, while increasing the intelligence and security of the network infrastructure. The forty-eight 10/100/1000 Mbps ports enable you to take advantage of the Gigabit Ethernet interfaces shipping in the current generation of servers, workstations, and storage devices, in addition to supporting your existing 10/100 Mbps clients.Network security is a top priority in any size business.
