Small Business
A Cost-Effective, High-Performance Network Foundation to Keep Your Business Moving
In a world that never slows down, your business needs to keep moving. That means keeping employees connected
at all times -- to each other and to the business applications they need to do their jobs. Imagine a network that
provides a single, high-performance platform for all of your business applications. Where your employees don’t have
to worry about reduced productivity because the network is down or because a vital application is unavailable or
running too slowly. Imagine being able to manage your entire network platform from a single interface, and being
able to easily add new data, voice, video, and wireless applications as your business evolves.
®
Cisco offers a network switch for small businesses that can make this vision a reality. The Cisco ESW500 Series
Switches are cost-effective, easy-to-use switches that provide the foundation of your small business network. These
high-performance switches deliver the reliability you need to keep your employees connected and productive,
preserving the availability of your essential applications and services to keep your business moving.
Cisco ESW500 Series Switches
The Cisco ESW500 Series, part of the Cisco Small Business Series, is a group of managed Ethernet switches that
provide wire-speed Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, integrated security, quality of service (QoS), and
Power over Ethernet (PoE) to support all of your business network needs. These switches integrate easily with other
Cisco Small Business Series products as well as the Cisco Smart Business Communications System to provide a
complete data, voice, video, and wireless networking solution for your business. With the Cisco ESW500 Series, you
can take advantage of a proven network solution and a broad portfolio of high-performance, easy-to-manage
switches that are designed and priced for small businesses.

●
Sample Deployments of the Cisco ESW500 Series
Move beyond your traditional phone system: The Cisco Smart Business Communications System lets you
transform your business by bringing together all of your communications onto a single network. The ESW500
Series works hand in hand with Smart Business Communications System products, such as the Cisco Unified
Communications 500 Series for Small Business. Together, the solution lets you support all of your company’s
phone calls, messaging, and data. Your employees can be more productive, and you can save money by
managing and paying for just one network.
●
Securely extend network access with wireless: The ESW500 Series Switches can connect and power
your wireless access points while supporting robust security and identity services to protect your wireless
environment. By choosing ESW500 Series Switches with both PoE and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, you
can easily integrate the Cisco AP 541N Dual Band 802.11n Clustering Access Point into your network. This
access point features advanced wireless technologies such as 802.11n and extends the life of your wireless
technology investment.
●
Connect your small business: The Cisco ESW500 Series Switches meet the needs of a range of small
businesses. The 10/100 Fast Ethernet switches can provide outstanding desktop connectivity in small
networks to connect computers, printers, and servers. They are well suited to new businesses that are
starting up or businesses that previously used basic, unmanaged switches but now require support for
additional features such as QoS traffic prioritization and advanced security. The Gigabit Ethernet switches in
the Cisco ESW500 Series can go even further, helping you achieve optimal performance from your desktop
computers, servers, and other shared devices with Fast or Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.
Features and Benefits
The Cisco ESW500 Series Switches provide security, management, and other capabilities far beyond what
unmanaged or smart switches can provide, without requiring you to configure (or pay for) features you don’t need.
The switches are designed to be part of the complete line of Cisco Small Business Series networking and voice
communications products that work together as part of a proven, fully integrated, easy-to-use small business
solution. The Cisco ESW500 Series provides:
●
Outstanding performance: The Cisco ESW500 Series supports up to Gigabit Ethernet speeds to deliver
optimal network performance, enabling you to add high-bandwidth data, voice, video, and wireless
applications. Ultimately, the switches give you the ability to meet more rigorous application demands and help
ensure that your employees always have access to the tools they need to be responsive to your customers
and each other.

●
High reliability: Cisco ESW500 Series Switches have been developed and rigorously tested to provide
reliable connectivity and performance, especially when supporting advanced voice, video, and wireless
services. They also support an optional redundant power supply that provides uninterrupted failover to help
ensure continuous operation, without the need to reboot, even if the primary power supply fails. These
features help you keep your network available, prevent costly downtime, and keep your employees and
customers connected to the applications they need.
●
Power over Ethernet: Cisco ESW500 Series Switches are available with up to 48 PoE ports of Fast Ethernet
and 24 PoE ports of Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. PoE allows you to power network-attached devices such
as IP phones, video cameras, and wireless access points directly over the Ethernet connection, without an
external power supply. The result is a simpler and less expensive deployment, without the need to install a
separate power supply for each connected endpoint.
●
Quality of service: Cisco ESW500 Series Switches feature QoS intelligence to prioritize delay-sensitive and
high-bandwidth network traffic, enhancing network performance and allowing businesses to support
demanding services such as real-time voice and video.
●
Simple configuration and management: Cisco ESW500 Series Switches are designed to be configured
and managed by small businesses or the Cisco partners that serve them. Whether you are installing a single
switch or an advanced voice and video communications system, simple graphical user interfaces (GUIs) help
your staff easily configure, manage, and troubleshoot your network. The Cisco ESW500 Series includes an
embedded web-based configuration utility designed specifically for setting up the ESW500 switch (Figure 3).
Figure 3.
Cisco ESW500 Configuration Utility
For systemwide deployments, you can use the Cisco Configuration Assistant, a GUI-based application that
configures all of the devices that are part of the Small Business Series as well as the Cisco Smart Business
Communications System. Both the embedded Configuration Utility and Cisco Configuration Assistant feature Cisco
Discovery Protocol to automatically discover all Cisco devices and allow them to share information about one
another. The tools also employ Cisco Smartports technology, which provides preset options for quickly configuring
all ports on a Cisco ESW500 Series Switch, including QoS and security features (Figure 4). Once the network is
deployed, Cisco Configuration Assistant can generate status reports, synchronize passwords, and upgrade software
across all of your Cisco network devices. All of these features reduce the time and effort your staff must devote to
network deployment and troubleshooting, so that they can focus on your business priorities. Cisco Configuration
Assistant is available for download free of charge at http://www.cisco.com/go/configassist.

Cisco Configuration Assistant—Front Panel View
Strong network security: Cisco ESW500 Series Switches provide several layers of security to protect your
business. Support for IEEE 802.1X port security can help ensure that only authorized users and applications
can access your wired and wireless LAN. Access control lists (ACLs) can restrict access to sensitive portions
of the network and guard against attacks by keeping unauthorized users from logging in. The Cisco ESW500
Series also supports virtual LANs (VLANs) to segment traffic and workgroups, and MAC address notification
features to allow administrators to track where and when users enter the network.
●
Easy integration with the Cisco Smart Business Communications System: The Cisco ESW500 Series is
designed to integrate with the Smart Business Communications System (SBCS) to provide a complete data,
voice, video, and wireless networking solution for your business. For example, the ESW500 Series ships with
a default configuration that allows for “plug-and-play” in a SBCS voice deployment. Simply connect an IP
phone to the network, and it immediately powers up and gets a dial tone.
●
Expansion ports: The Cisco ESW500 Series offers Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) expansion slots that
give you the option to add fiber-optic or Gigabit Ethernet uplink connectivity to the switch. With the ability to
increase the connectivity range of the switches, you have more flexibility to design your network around your
unique business environment, and to easily connect switches on different floors or across the business.
●
5-year enhanced Cisco warranty: Cisco ESW500 Series Switches come with a 5-year limited hardware
warranty that includes next-business-day advance hardware replacement (where available). In addition, Cisco
offers software application fixes for the duration of the warranty and telephone technical support, through the
Cisco Small Business Support Center, at no charge for the first 90 days following the date of purchase. The
