Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series Switches
with Standard Image Software
Product Overview
The Cisco® Catalyst® 2950SX-48, 2950T-48, 2950SX-24, 2950-24, and 2950-12 switches,
members of the Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series, are standalone, fixed-configuration, managed
10/100-Mbps switches providing basic workgroup connectivity for small to midsize
networks. These wire-speed desktop switches come with Standard Image software features
and offer Cisco IOS® Software functions for basic data, voice, and video services at the edge
of the network. Embedded in all Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches is the Cisco Cluster
Management Suite (CMS) software, which allows users to simultaneously configure and
troubleshoot multiple Cisco Catalyst desktop switches using a standard Web browser. In
addition, with the newly launched Cisco Express Setup, users now have the option to set up
the switch through a Web browser, eliminating the need for more complex terminal
emulation programs and knowledge of the command-line interface (CLI). Cisco Express
Setup reduces the cost of deployment by enabling less-skilled personnel to set up switches
quickly. This product line offers two distinct sets of software features and a range of
configurations to allow small, midsize, and enterprise branch offices to select the right
combination for the network edge. For networks that require additional security, advanced
quality of service (QoS), and high availability, Enhanced Image software delivers intelligent
services such as rate limiting and security filtering for deployment at the network edge.
The Cisco Catalyst 2950SX-48, 2950T-48, 2950SX-24, 2950-12 and 2950-24 switches
(Figures 1–5) are available only with the Standard Image (SI) software for the Cisco
Catalyst 2950 Series.

These switches provide customers with many connectivity and port-density options. The Cisco Catalyst 2950-12
and Cisco Catalyst 2950-24 switches provide 12 and 24 10/100-Mbps ports, respectively, for edge connectivity.
Depending on port-density requirements, customers with gigabit fiber uplink connectivity needs can choose between
the Cisco Catalyst 2950SX-24 Switch, which provides 24 10/100-Mbps ports and 2 integrated 1000BASE-SX ports,
and the Cisco Catalyst 2950SX-48 Switch, which provides 48 10/100-Mbps ports and 2 integrated 1000BASE-SX
ports.
With these integrated ports, customers get an extremely cost-effective solution for delivering gigabit speeds using
fiber. These switches are ideal for education and government segments where fiber uplinks are required. For
customers that do not need fiber connectivity, the Cisco Catalyst 2950T-48 Switch with 48 10/100-Mbps ports and
two integrated 10/100/1000 BASE-T ports is a cost-effective alternative. The 10/100/1000 BASE-T ports can be used
for server connectivity or for uplink connectivity to distribution or other switches. Dual ports also provide
redundancy and increased availability, as well as provide a cost-effective means for cascading switches and managing
them as a cluster. The Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series Intelligent Ethernet switches with Enhanced Image software are
fixed-configuration models that bring intelligent services, such as advanced QoS, enhanced security, and high
availability to the network edge while maintaining the simplicity of traditional LAN switching. Combining a
Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series Intelligent Ethernet Switch with a Cisco Catalyst 3550 Series Switch enables IP routing
from the edge to the core of the network. Refer to the Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series Enhanced Image Data Sheet for

Network Availability with Wire-Speed Performance in Connecting End Stations
to the LAN
With a switching fabric of 13.6 Gbps and a maximum forwarding bandwidth of 13.6 Gbps, Cisco Catalyst 2950
Series switches deliver wire-speed performance on all ports in connecting end stations and users to the company
LAN. Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches with basic services support performance-boosting features such as Cisco
Fast EtherChannel® to provide high-performance bandwidth between Cisco Catalyst switches, routers, and servers.
Network Security
Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches offer enhanced data security through a wide range of security features. These
features allow customers to provide network security based on users or MAC addresses. The security enhancements
are available free by downloading the latest software for the Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches.
Private VLAN Edge isolates ports on a switch, ensuring that traffic travels directly from the entry point to the
aggregation device through a virtual path and cannot be directed to another port. In addition, for authentication
of users with a TACACS+ or a RADIUS server, 802.1x provides port-level security. Simple Network Management
Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3) (non-crypto) monitors and controls network devices as well as manages
configurations, performance, collection of statistics, and security.
With the Cisco Catalyst 2950SX-48, 2950T-48, 2950SX-24, 2950-24, and 2950-12 switches, network managers can
make ports and consoles highly secure. MAC-address-based port-level security prevents unauthorized stations from
accessing the switch. Multilevel access security on the switch console and the Web management interface prevents
unauthorized users from accessing or altering switch configurations and can be implemented using an internal user
database on each switch or a centrally administered TACACS+ or RADIUS server. Using 802.1x in conjunction with

a RADIUS server allows dynamic port-based user authentication. In addition, 802.1x can coexist with port security
on a per-port basis. Security features can be deployed using Cisco CMS software security wizards, which ease the
deployment of security features that restrict user access to a server or portion of the network or restrict the
applications used in certain areas of the network.
Network Control
Cisco Catalyst 2950SX-48, 2950T-48, 2950SX-24, 2950-24, and 2950-12 switches deliver LAN-edge QoS,
supporting two modes of reclassification. One mode—based on the IEEE 802.1p standard—honors the
class-of-service (CoS) value at the ingress point and assigns the packet to the appropriate queue. In the second mode,
packets can be reclassified based on a default CoS value assigned to the ingress port by the network administrator.
In the case of frames that arrive without a CoS value (such as untagged frames), these Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series
switches support classification based on a default CoS value per port assigned by the network administrator. After
the frames have been classified or reclassified using one of the above modes, they are assigned to the appropriate
queue at the egress. Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches support four egress queues, which allow the network
administrator to be more discriminating and granular in assigning priorities for the various applications on the LAN.
Strict Priority Scheduling configuration ensures that time-sensitive applications, such as voice, always follow an
expedited path through the switch fabric. Weighted Round Robin (WRR) scheduling, another significant
enhancement, ensures that lower-priority traffic receives attention without comprising the priority settings
administered by a network manager. These features allow network administrators to prioritize mission-critical,
time-sensitive traffic, such as voice (IP telephony traffic), enterprise resource planning (Oracle, SAP, etc.), and
computer-assisted design and manufacturing, over less time-sensitive applications such as FTP or e-mail (Simple Mail
Transfer Protocol).
Network Availability
To provide efficient use of resources for bandwidth-hungry applications like multicasts, Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series
switches support Internet Group Management Protocol Version 3 (IGMPv3) snooping in hardware. Through the
support and configuration of IGMP snooping through the Cisco CMS software, these Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series
switches deliver outstanding performance and ease of use in administering and managing multicast applications on
the LAN.
The IGMPv3 snooping feature allows the switch to “listen in” on the IGMP conversation between hosts and routers.
When a switch hears an IGMP join request from a host for a given multicast group, the switch adds the host’s port
number to the group destination address list for that group. And when the switch hears an IGMP leave request, it
removes the host’s port from the content-addressable memory (CAM) table entry.
Multicast VLAN Registration (MVR) is designed for applications using wide-scale deployment of multicast traffic
across an Ethernet ring-based service provider network (for example, the broadcast of multiple television channels
over a service-provider network). MVR allows a subscriber on a port to subscribe and unsubscribe to a multicast
stream on the networkwide multicast VLAN.
Per VLAN Spanning Tree Plus (PVST+) allows users to implement redundant uplinks while also distributing traffic
loads across multiple links. This is not possible with standard Spanning Tree Protocol implementations. Cisco
UplinkFast technology ensures immediate transfer to the secondary uplink, much better than the traditional 30- to
60-second convergence time. This is yet another enhancement of the Spanning Tree Protocol implementation. An

additional feature that enhances performance is voice VLAN. This feature allows network administrators to assign
voice traffic to a VLAN dedicated to IP telephony, thereby simplifying phone installations and providing easier
network traffic administration and troubleshooting.
Network Management
Cisco Cluster Management Suite (CMS) is Web software that is embedded in Cisco Catalyst 3750, 3550, 2970, 2950,
2940, 3500 XL, 2900 XL, and 2900 LRE XL series switches. Through Cisco switch-clustering technology, users
access Cisco CMS software with any standard Web browser to manage up to 16 of these switches at once, regardless
of their geographic proximityæwith the option of using a single IP address for the entire cluster if desired. Cisco CMS
software supports standards-based connectivity options such as Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Fast EtherChannel, Gigabit
Ethernet, and Gigabit EtherChannel connectivity. Because Cisco switch-clustering technology is not limited to a
single stack of switches, Cisco CMS software expands the traditional cluster domain beyond a single wiring closet
and saves time and effort for network administrators.
Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches can be configured either as command or member switches in a Cisco switch
cluster. Cisco CMS also allows the network administrator to designate a standby or redundant command switch,
which takes the commander duties should the primary command switch fail. Other key features include the ability
to configure multiple ports and switches simultaneously, as well as perform software updates across the entire cluster
at once, and clone configurations to other clustered switches for rapid network deployment. Bandwidth graphs and
link reports provide useful diagnostic information, and the topology map gives network administrators a quick view
of network status.
In addition to CMS, Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches provide extensive management tools using SNMP network
management platforms such as CiscoWorks.
Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series switches deliver a comprehensive set of management tools to provide the required
visibility and control in the network. Managed with CiscoWorks, Cisco Catalyst family switches can be configured
and managed to deliver end-to-end device, VLAN, traffic, and policy management. Coupled with CiscoWorks, Cisco
Resource Manager Essentials, a Web-based management tool, offers automated inventory collection, software
deployment, easy tracking of network changes, views into device availability, and quick isolation of error conditions.
Cisco Express Setup is a new feature that simplifies initial configuration of a switch. Users now have the option to
set up the switch using a Web browser, eliminating the need for more complex terminal emulation programs and
knowledge of CLI. Cisco Express Setup reduces the cost of deployment by enabling less-skilled personnel to set up
switches quickly and simply.
