There’s plenty of good networking equipment out there…but not all of it is exceptional. Cisco switches? They’re on a whole ‘nother level. Here’re four very good reasons to deploy these bad boys in your own infrastructure:
The ability of a Cisco switch to deliver maximum network uptime means that there is a lesser chance of malicious infiltration and data leaking due to the decrease in downtime. It’s well-known that their units run a tight ship and lay the smackdown when it comes to integrating firewalls, intrusion prevention and VLANs.
As technology progresses rapidly and your business’ needs change, so too will the roles your IT hardware plays. Cisco’s switches, in particular, are so flexible that they can work for a network of nearly any size and are modularly upgradeable, allowing you to save the time and money it would take to implement new solutions or overhaul your switching gear.
The workspace is quickly evolving to become more than just the cubicle. As IT mobility becomes ubiquitous, users are working more from home, cafés and remote offices. Employees and visitors are bringing their own devices (BYOD), and along with those devices comes the issue of bringing their own unsecure network (BYON) into and out of the office. Cisco has what they call “converged wired-wireless access” incorporated into their last few models of switches; this technology allows for things like secure access, guest access and seamless roaming for users accessing the network via mobile device.
Slash the power bills and waste less. A stackable Cisco switch will outperform and outlive many similar units in its class. The units themselves are energy efficient and are cost effective to deploy and keep running.
Cisco’s got a great goal for all IT professionals to remember through all of this:
“Deliver an uncompromised user experience on any workspace.”
We can help with that delivery. So, if you have any IT hardware needs, we are the used Cisco reseller to go to. Contact us today for a quote and let’s see if we can’t provide you with a first-rate switch with first-rate savings.
With the NFL draft behind us now, we can see how different teams are shaping up for the upcoming season. Sure, this year’s draft didn’t have the excitement of years past: last year, the first three picks were Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Trent Richardson–all of whom are franchise players. With Eric Fisher, Luke Joeckel and Dion Jordan as the first three picks, it’s obvious that, this year, teams focused more on the offensive line and players that do most of the hard work; jersey sales will be mediocre. Eric Fisher was a good choice by the Kansas City Chiefs, and he will definitely add serious value to their organization. Yesterday, we spoke about the underdogs and how players drafted in later rounds can still make the biggest impact in the league. It still blows my mind that Tom Brady was the 199th overall pick back in 2000. These guys that were underrated are now considered some of the biggest playmakers in the game.
Below is a list of a few products that planIT HARDWARE considers to be the biggest players in our arena. These items will have a big impact on your business, so check out http://www.planithw.com to see our entire inventory!
The Cisco Catalyst 3750-X and 3560-X Series Switches are enterprise-class lines of stackable and standalone switches, respectively. These switches provide high availability, scalability, security, energy efficiency, and ease of operation with innovative features such as Cisco StackPower. The Cisco Catalyst 3750-X Series with StackWise Plus technology provides scalability, ease of management and investment protection for the evolving business’ needs.
X marks the spot in terms of industry-leading security when it comes to Cisco Catalyst 3750X Series switches.These stackable enterprise-class switches have proven to be tougher to break through than King Hippo from Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out.
Everyone remembers the left and right jabs King Hippo would throw before he opened his massive mouth. His hand would raise and Little Mac would defeat the King with a malicious assault to the head.
With Flexible NetFlow to protect against malicious behavior, the 3750X also uses MACsec layer-2 encryption to protect confidentiality and TrustSec to provide identity-based access control.
Little Mac had the support of Doc Louis, the “heavy-puncher.” With a 3750X, you will have the support of non-stop communications with redundant hot swappable power supplies, cooling fans, and network modules.
So, let’s take a look at the stats:

For the typical home end-user, “router” and “modem” are practically household names, like Brad Pitt (and his flowing locks) or Kim Kardashian (and her…errrmm…fashion sense…). With the advent of the wireless home network, these pieces of hardware have become a commonplace part of every day life. But for the individual who makes the leap from home-office hero to startup superstar, a switch becomes as integral a part of the business machinery as a basic router would be to the home network.
So, for the uninitiated, I will answer the question: What is a switch?
A network switch is similar to a router in that it is a connector of several electronic devices, forging and facilitating a “network.” This device is crucial to most offices and businesses in that it allows for printers, servers and computers to be tethered together on a single network in which they can communicate with one another, effectively “talking.”
A few great things about switches is that they will last you about seven years and no configuration is required out-of-box–in other words: if you don’t want to, you don’t have to.
The kind of inter-connectivity that a switch provides helps businesses of most sizes, from startup to mega-Goliath corporation, function more productively and efficiently. planIT HARDWARE has plenty of refurbished, tested and used network hardware, including switches (at 60-90% off list price) that will last you years to come.
