The SG550X-24P 24 Port Gigabit Managed Switch from Cisco gives you the tools needed to ensure data flows smoothly. This network switch comes equipped with twenty-four Gigabit Ethernet ports, two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, and four 10 Gigabit Ethernet expansion slots. The SG550X-24P supports both optical fiber and twisted pair media types and resides on Layer 3 of the network.
The Cisco 550X Series are the next-generation stackable managed Ethernet switches that provide the advanced capabilities and superior performance you need to support a more demanding network environment at an affordable price. These switches incorporate fan and power hardware redundancy, increasing overall network availability. The SG550XG models provide 24 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet with both copper and fiber connection options, providing a solid foundation for your current business applications, as well as those you are planning for the future. At the same time, these switches are easy to deploy and manage, without a large IT staff.
Cisco 550X Series switches break the barrier of 10 Gigabit Ethernet adoption by providing affordable and flexible configurations customized for the demanding network requirements of small and medium businesses.
With 10G copper ports on SG550XG switches, you can easily and cost-effectively enable 10G connections to servers and network storage devices with standard RJ45 Ethernet cable. You can also connect your SG550X access switches to the SG550XG aggregation with 10G SFP+ fiber, building a high-performance backbone to speed up the overall operation of your network.
Cisco 550X Series switches support the Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) standard (IEEE 802.3at), providing up to 30 watts per port. The switches also support 60W PoE on selected ports to power compact switches, high-power wireless access points, or connected lighting. As a result, the switches can support devices that require more power, such as 802.11ac wireless access points, video-based IP phones, surveillance cameras, and more.
Cisco 550X Series switches are also fully backward compatible with IEEE 802.11af PoE and Cisco legacy PoE protocols.
