Cisco SX550X-12F Network Switch Kuwait
The Cisco SX550X-12F Kuwait Switch is a next-generation managed switch that offers excellent performance, rich features, and ease of use. With support for Layer 2 and 3 features, advanced security, routing, and energy-saving technology, it delivers a solid foundation for business applications today and in the future.
High-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet
Cisco SX550X-12F Kuwait 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 the Cisco SX550X-12F Kuwait switches, you can easily and cost-effectively enable 10G connections to servers and network storage devices with standard RJ-45 Ethernet cable. You can also connect your SG550X access switches to the SX550X aggregation with 10G SFP+ fiber, building a high-performance backbone to speed up the overall operation of your network.
High reliability and resiliency
In a growing business in which availability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is critical, you need to assure that employees and customers can always access the data and resources whenever they need. In these environments, stackable switches can play an important role in minimizing downtime and improving network resiliency. For example, if the master switch within a Cisco 550X Series stack fails, another switch takes over, keeping your network up and running. You can also replace individual devices in the stack without taking your whole network offline or affecting employee productivity.
The Cisco SX550X-12F Kuwait is designed to deliver hardware redundancy at the lowest incremental cost. Power redundancy is delivered with the Cisco RPS2300 external RPS system. If power to the switch is lost (through loss of AC power or power supply failure), the switch will automatically, and instantaneously, obtain its power from the RPS. This switchover occurs so quickly that there is no loss in traffic or reboot of the device. A Cisco RPS2300 system can be connected to up to six 550X Series switches to provide redundancy. Cooling fan redundancy is delivered through preinstalled N+1 configuration. A switch can fully support all its capabilities for the life of the product with only N fans. If one of the fans fails, the spare fan automatically takes over, without causing any downtime.
The Cisco 550X Series provides an additional layer of resiliency with support for the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP). VRRP lets you extend the same resiliency that stacking provides for individual switches to complete network domains. By running VRRP between two stacks, you can instantly cut over from one stack to another in the event of a problem and continue operating even after a failure.
The Cisco SX550X-12F Kuwait also supports dual images, allowing you to perform software upgrades without having to worry about the network going down during the upgrade.
Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) and 60W PoE
Cisco SX550X-12F Kuwait 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. The power is managed in a smart fashion such that only the amount of power the endpoint needs is delivered to it and not wasted. 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.
The Cisco SX550X-12F Kuwait integrates a variety of power-saving features across all models, providing the industry’s most extensive energy-efficient switching portfolio. These switches are designed to conserve energy by optimizing power use, which helps protects the environment and reduce your energy costs.
