The Cisco SG250-50 250 Series Managed Switch is armed with 50 Gigabit Ethernet ports that connect multiple systems with one another and with printers, IP telephony devices, wireless access points, and other equipment. Cisco provides useful software-based tools to help in configuration and speed of deployment, and this managed switch allows detailed control over how data travels and who has access to the network. For performance, the SG250-50 switch has a 74.41 Mpps transfer rate and a 100 Gb/s switching capacity.
Cisco has designed 48 ports to be PoE+ compliant supporting 802.3af and 802.3at PoE network standards with a maximum PoE power budget of up to 375W. This feature allows PoE-compatible devices to run on a single connection that delivers data as well as up to 30W of power. To cool the switch, four fans are onboard and produce a maximum noise level of 50.2 dB.
The SG250-50 switch is equipped with two combo uplink ports that can utilize multimode and single-mode fiber connections, granting the switch a longer distance to another switch when compared to an Ethernet-based connection. Other notable features included with the switch are Layer 3 static routing for transmitting data between nodes without degrading networking performance along with IPv6 for supporting future applications without needing to upgrade networking equipment.
