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.
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.
