Product Overview
Growing businesses require cost-effective networking solutions that can scale to meet ever®
changing business needs. The Cisco SRW208P 8-Port 10/100 Ethernet Switch (Figure 1) brings
increased intelligence and security to the network infrastructure. Its intelligence and small size
make it ideal for a conference room or training room where security and uptime are important. The
switch offers two Gigabit copper or optical interfaces for connection to a core switch.
For wireless or voice over IP (VoIP) deployments, the Cisco SRW208P supports the IEEE 802.3af
standard for Power over Ethernet (PoE). Automatic load sensing automatically detects Power over
Ethernet on the end device before providing power. Power feeding of Ethernet is limited for the
fixed 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX ports. The switch can provide maximum output power per PoE port
up to 15.4W on four ports or 7.5W per PoE port on eight ports simultaneously. Each port has
independent overload and short-circuit protection, with LED indicators for power status.
Network security is a top priority in any size business. Most business data networks, large and
small, are unsecured. Unauthorized access to the network and mission-critical data is a constant
concern. The Cisco SRW208P helps secure the network through 802.1X port authentication and
MAC filtering. The 802.1X standard requires clients to authenticate themselves before the port will
pass data for them.

Data Sheet
Businesses are recognizing the benefits of VoIP and are quickly migrating their voice services to
IP-based platforms, requiring their local area networks to support both voice and data applications.
In unmanaged IP networks, bursty data sessions can disrupt voice packet delivery, causing poor
voice quality. With the enhanced quality of service (QoS) and traffic-management features in the
Cisco SRW208P, voice data can be prioritized, helping ensure clear and reliable voice
The advanced features of the Cisco SRW208P can help you further secure the integrity of your
network. WebView provides an intuitive, highly secure management interface, enabling you to
better utilize the comprehensive feature set of the switch, for a better-optimized, more secure
Eight 10/100 switched RJ-45 ports deliver up to 200 Mbps of throughput per port
Two 10/100/1000 switched RJ-45 mini Gigabit Interface Converter (mini-GBIC) combo ports
PoE on the 10/100 ports supplies up to the IEEE 802.3af maximum of 15.4W per port for
up to four ports or 7.5W per port on eight ports
5.6-Gbps nonblocking, store-and-forward switching mechanism
Simplified QoS management enabled by advanced queuing techniques using 802.1p,
differentiated services (DiffServ), or type of service (ToS) traffic prioritization specifications
Configuration and monitoring from a standard web browser with WebView management
Secure remote management of the switch via Secure Shell (SSH) and SSL secure channel
network protocols
802.1Q-based VLANs enable segmentation of networks for improved performance and
Private VLAN Edge (PVE) for simplified network isolation of guest connections or
autonomous networks
Automatic configuration of VLANs across multiple switches through Generic VLAN
Registration Protocol (GVRP) and Generic Attribute Registration Protocol (GARP)
Automatic medium dependent interface (MDI) and MDI crossover (MDI-X) detection
User/network port-level security via 802.1X authentication and MAC-based filtering
Increased bandwidth (up to 8x) and added link redundancy with Link Aggregation Control
Protocol (LACP)
Enhanced rate-limiting capabilities provide control, including back pressure to control the
rate that data at which can flow into and out of a port
Multicasting, broadcasting, and flooding control
Port mirroring for noninvasive monitoring of switch traffic
Jumbo frame support - up to 1632 bytes
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) versions 1, 2c, and 3
Fully rack mountable using the included rack-mounting hardware
