Cisco Catalyst 2950
|Ethernet Technology:||Fast Ethernet (100-Mbit/s)|
|Speed up sluggish networks with the Cisco Catalyst WSC295024 series switch. This is an efficient switch-managed router that is part of the larger Cisco Catalyst 2950 series of stand-alone switches. A secure wire-speed desktop switch, the WSC295024 comes with elegant Cisco Device Manager Software. It's very easy to set up, configure, and monitor using a standard web browser. You won't need special fixed-configuration applications, and you can adjust it to your specifications without a command line if you choose. The WS-C2950-24 series units are completely platform-independent. You can manage a series of switches from any desktop, laptop, or mobile device. WS-C2950SX-24 series configuration programs work equally well with Windows, MacOS, Linux, and even FreeBSD management environments. Ensuring the network is private and completely secure is easy to do, thanks to enhanced algorithms that deliver rate limiting and security filtering to the very edge of the network. Users can choose to organize one switch at a time or configure and troubleshoot multiple switches simultaneously with Cisco Network Assistant. This package acts as a free standalone network management package that speeds up standard system administration tasks. Since it sports ample hardware, the Cisco 2950 switch bank is an excellent choice for small and medium business enterprises looking to upgrade existing Cisco equipment. It's also a great choice for those who've never used 10Base-T full-duplex networking before. Since this switch bus doesn't need any additional accessories, you can use it with your existing Gigabit series LAN connections. When conditions are favorable, these switches will run at full power to offer you the fastest wireless connection available. Cisco Catalyst equipment won't automatically throttle speeds, so you can transfer large amounts of data over all ports. Cisco updated this firmware to work with the requirements of IEEE networking protocols too. If you're using the new RPS series of commands, you'll be able to open and shut ports easily. Other series of commands found in modern routers like IGMP will work with this component as well. You won't have to actively think about opening and shutting ports, thanks to the product design. This series of switch banks handles most configuration tasks automatically. Once the bank is fully on, you can simply plug in an Ethernet cable and be connected to the internet. This Cisco Catalyst bank has a copy of Cisco IOS stored in flash memory, so you won't need to worry about installing it yourself, and it will automatically upgrade upon connection to the internet. Even if you had to copy a version over to onboard memory chips, the Cisco Catalyst hardware could tell which version of the firmware to load. This functionality serves as a guard against future compatibility problems. Engineers also worked to reduce the weight of the system and the power supply. This makes it convenient to store on standard shelving or to relocate. The product's dimensions are 18 inches in width by 2 inches in height by 10 inches in depth, and it weighs 7 pounds. The Catalyst Systems name and Cisco 2950 model type are imprinted on the unit.|

Re-pourposed Cisco 2950
Well I bought one to use the DTD feature and lots of ports. Its installed on my Mesh radio site. I have 3 nodes on different channels and they all connect via the Cisco 2950. I also got the serial to USB cable. Oh the fan is a little noisy but I think I can fix that. John Tuttle

best priced managed switch you can buy
Good: Cisco 2950 has 24 ports, all of which can be either used as they come, or can be configured for a specific purpose. For the price, you cannot purchase a new switch of equal value in a store, its just not possible. The amount of settings and configurations you can choose is huge, which comes in handy. The ability to define and implement VLANs is reason enough to buy a switch of this caliber. Bad: buying anything Cisco requires some information to use. You need to be familiar with Cisco IOS and own a serial console cable to configure it. The ugly: the switch I purchased still had old config files on it from the previous owner, which meant it was password protected. I needed to reference the cisco website ( or Cisco CCNA Portable Command Guide)to find the steps to override the password, which can only be done with physical access to the switch itself. After that, works flawlessly. ( which just means that somebody was lazy when the decommissioned their equipment, potentially leaving behind traces of corporate network information) Overall, Cisco equipment is built like a tank, and a great deal to find used. I love my switch, and I'm sure anyone else that is looking for quality equipment will too.
Excellent switches which are very durable.
Pro: When you buy CISCO you get reliability and a good product overall for those who know how to use it. The CISCO 2950 series switch has been around for a long time and I've had a good long history with these. In my opinion, they are very impressive and have worked well in many a tough environments which I have observed - such as closets that are constantly flooded with water and high levels of humidity with lots of shock. You wont' go wrong when buying one of these if your after solidity, just be aware that updates are hard to come by these days but can be found with good support from the online communities because of their age. Con: The age of these units and their speed basically leaves them in the dust when it comes to the latest equipment available. Don't buy if you need performance and speed because it'll just disappoint. However, as a training tool or something that stable for a home network it's a great piece of equipment - Yes it's only 10/100.
This is Cisco equipment, so it's pretty much a no-brainer that you are dealing with top-notch stuff. Don't let the size fool you, it is easy to move around. LED indicator lights are quite helpful. It's a managed switch, so you pretty much have full control over everything. The only thing you need to take into consideration is the fact that it is a 10/100 switch. The world is going gigabit, but a 24 port managed gigabit switch is going to cost a pretty penny.
