Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series Switches
®
®
The Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series Switches are a new family of fixed-configuration
managed Ethernet standalone devices that provide wire-speed Fast Ethernet and Gigabit
Ethernet connectivity, enabling enhanced LAN services for businesses with up to 250
employees. The Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series offers integrated security, quality of
service (QoS), and features optimized for integration with Cisco wireless LAN (WLAN),
security, and IP telephony solutions.
The Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series offers:
●
Power over Ethernet (PoE): 4-port and 24-port PoE configurations provide full 15.4W
simultaneously on all ports for seamless integration with Cisco IP Communications and
Cisco WLAN solutions.
●
●
Advanced network security:
◦
Support for IEEE 802.1x, port security, and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
◦
Integration with Cisco Network Admission Control (NAC) using the NAC appliance
Optimized QoS using Cisco Smartports: Cisco Smartports roles match the appropriate
class-of-service (CoS) and differentiated services code point (DSCP) values to the specific
Cisco device connected to the Cisco Catalyst Express switch. This allows for trouble-free
deployment of Cisco advanced technologies such as IP telephony and WLAN.
●
Central management of Cisco foundation, IP telephony and WLAN solutions: In conjunction
with the GUI-based Cisco Network Assistant, the Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series allows
centralized management of a Cisco small and medium-sized business (SMB) network,
including Cisco Catalyst switches, integrated services routers (ISRs) and Cisco IP phones,
using a single IP address. Management can be done locally or remotely, using a secure
SSL connection. Cisco Network Assistant is available at no cost and is now available in
localized languages (Japanese, Chinese, French, Italian, German, and Spanish).
●
Limited lifetime warranty: Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series Switches are backed for the
life of the product by the Cisco Limited Lifetime Hardware Warranty.

Primary Benefits
Performance
With nonblocking, wire-speed switching on all ports, the Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series offers
10/100 Mbps ports for desktop, wireless access point, printer, and IP phone connectivity and
10/100/1000BASE-T or SFP ports for server or backbone connectivity. With head-of-line blocking
prevention, a heavily congested port will not affect performance on other ports on the switch.
Ease of Use
The Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series switches are designed for ease of use. The switch is
initialized through the GUI Device Manager; no console cable or terminal emulation application is
needed. Integrated intelligence optimizes the switch at the system level. Optimal configuration for
each port can be applied by choosing from 10 preset Cisco Smartports roles. And all PoE ports
can supply up to the IEEE standard maximum of 15.4W simultaneously without the need of an
external power supply. There is no need to do creative power budgeting or worry about exceeding
the power limit or adding an external power shelf. All ports support autonegotiation of port speed
and duplex. With automatic medium-dependent interface crossover (Auto-MDIX) detection
support, you do not have to worry about incorrect cable types.
Intelligence
Deploying and running an end-to-end Cisco network for up to 250 employees has never been
easier. With Cisco Smartports Advisor (Figure 3), the Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series Switches
automatically discover connected Cisco devices and suggest appropriate Smartports roles. With
the Smartports phone and desktop role, voice quality is guaranteed. Telephone conversations are
not affected by employees sending or downloading large files. The switches also can autodetect
misconfigurations and suggest corrections.
Figure 3.
Smartports View
Smartports roles offer a set of verified feature templates per connection type that are easy to
apply. With these templates, users can consistently and reliably configure essential security,
availability, and QoS features with minimal effort and expertise. Smartports roles simplify the
configuration of critical features.

Data Sheet
Secure
The Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series Switches offer you layers of security to protect your
business. To secure the device, management traffic to and from the GUI Device Manager can be
encrypted with SSL and Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3). For network
security, you can choose from three business-optimized security levels. Tight integration with
®
Cisco Aironet wireless access points allows you to quickly and easily deploy a secure WLAN
network. With the NAC Appliance solution, the Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series helps protect
your network against worms and viruses and raises the overall security protection of your network
to the next level.
Easy Monitoring and Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting is easy with the Cisco Troubleshooting Advisor, which identifies cabling problems
such as wiring opens and shorts, common configuration errors, and other potential problems in
your network and recommends corrective action. Graphical trend charts and an alert LED help you
identify problems before they cause network outages.

Switch
● Configured as an uplink port to a backbone switch for fast convergence
● Enables 802.1Q trunking
Access Point
● Configured for optimal connection to a wireless access point
● Configurable VLAN
Server
Can be classified as trusted, critical, business, or standard server:
● Trusted: for use with Cisco CallManager Express, same QoS setting as Voice (VoIP
traffic is prioritized)
● Critical: for critical servers with QoS set higher than default
● Business: default setting; QoS higher than desktop Internet traffic
● Standard: for servers set to same level as regular desktop Internet traffic Configurable
VLAN Port security enabled to limit unauthorized access to the network
Printer
● QoS settings for “Printer” are the same as “Desktop,” “Access Point,” and “Standard
Server”
● Configurable VLAN
● Port security enabled to limit unauthorized access to the network
Guest
● Guests are allowed access to the Internet, but not to the company network
● All guest ports are placed on the “Cisco-Guest” VLAN
● Port security enabled to limit unauthorized access to the network
Other
● “Other” Smartports role allows for flexible connectivity of nonspecified devices
● Configurable VLAN

Diagnostic
Customers can connect diagnostics devices to monitor traffic on other switches
(configurable using Cisco Network Assistant only)
Security
SSL
SSL support: encrypts all HTTP traffic, allowing secure access to the browser-based
management GUI in the switch
Security policy slider
Three security levels: low, medium, and high
(configurable using Cisco Network Assistant only):
● Low: for business environments where there is limited guest access; limited number of
devices are allowed per port
● Medium: for business environments where security is important; only authorized devices
(by MAC address) are allowed on the company network
● High: for business environments where security is critical; only authorized devices (by
MAC address) and authenticated users (using IEEE 802.1x) are allowed on the
company network
Multicast
● High-bandwidth video traffic is optimized so that it does not affect other applications on
the network.
● Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) (v1, v2, and v3) snooping: IGMP snooping
constrains multicast traffic at Layer 2 by configuring Layer 2 LAN ports dynamically to
forward multicast traffic only to those ports that want to receive it.
